    Vote - Your favourite Happy Landings & Lost Trakcs song (round 1)

    What is your favourite song from the Happy Landings sessions?

    Please note that songs that appeared on both Happy Landings and Elemental will be listed in BOTH polls as they were completely different recordings (2DV, GW, HL) or significantly different mixes (OB, WOHH).

    There will be no differentiation between Martin Rex mixes and Stephen W. Tayler mixes as both did stellar jobs.

    The long version of We Once Held Hands is the Fixx hitting on all cylinders. Love the extended opening middleeastern theme. I've always wanted to edit a music video using this track. Great visuals come to mind. Cy sings with extreme urgency. Adam provides perfection on percussion. Ruperts touches are just right, and Jamie tears it up as usual. Great bass line on the open,Not sure who's playing? probably Chris. Well done!

    Sweet Pandemonium - what a cool track. Reminds me of Rupert Hiine from the mid-80's, for some reason.

    "Going Without".....love the arrangement and it's such a pretty song. Though at a time not too long ago I would have said "Elected" because of the total different sound the guys came up with for it. I would love to hear "Elected" and The Portraits tune "Hazards in the Home" redone with the current Fixx to see what it sounded like.

    Have a soft spot for Sweet Pandemonium. Followed closely by Happy Landings.

    "We Once Held Hands". Even though it sounds like "Barracuda" by Heart.

    Would like to hear some opinions on Elected. Never really got into that song. Sounds totally strange to me I never skip it, but it is really not my favourite...

    To me, it sounds like a bunch of blokes singing at a pub! LOL!
    It is an odd song. Find it interesting in its own strange way. But I must admit to skipping it sometimes....

    I used to ignore "Elected" until around national election time. Then it grew on me. Rather upbeat for a cynical song. I like the old style sound and the comical/cynical hook, "do it all over again".

    Although Happy Landings is my favorite from Elemental, and it is also great on this album, I voted for Ocean Blue. It may be the best recording of any of their songs in my opinion.

    Ocean Blue, it's new to me, since I have just recently bought this CD. I did not realize I was missing something for my collection. I am missing a few other things too, but working on it. That's the fun part, finding all these treasures again.
    I am the winner in any event.
