    Yay, guido!

    It looks like "Red Skies" is doing pretty well... I know it's hard to vote what with all the amazing songs the Fixx created. But with an enchanting beat and catchy lyrics, "Red Skies" is just so addicting for me!!

    Yup, I had to go for 'Red Skies' too, as it was the first Fixx song I heard, and I've always considered it to be THE song by the band, despite the commercial success of the RTB songs.

    In the warm flooded air
    Looking back to those lost opportunities
    So often missed or ignored
    A thousand times I start heading for the dawn
    Only to turn around and face this rue once more

    Gee. I dunno. Knowing Jeanne, it could be two different ones.

    It's tough choosing from la creme de la creme, isn't it?

    I wonder what will happen after the new album is released. I expect one of its songs will show up in the poll, eventually.

    "Red Skies"

    This is coming from a guy who discovered The Fixx when he was over 25. My favorites aren't based on radio play or sales. To be honest, Reach the Beach is one of my least favorite Fixx albums.

    Tough choice, though. We love lots of their songs, don't we?

    Wow, Steve, that was tough. I am exhausted from pondering 2 or 3 of those. In the end, I went with the one that seemed to reach my soul the most (not just lyrically but musically):

    Two Different Views

    Wow, this is hard. Back in the 80's, my favourite song was "Red Skies." In the 90's it was "Calm Animals," but now that I'm older, I LOVE "Two Different Views." I'll have to think on this for a while before I vote...

    Of this particular set of choices, I definitely had to go with Saved by Zero. It's probably the song that made me a fan. I think it's truly wonderful, and it survives reinterpretation. I adore the Woodland version, too!
    If John Cage stands silently in a forest and there's no one there to hear it, is it music?

    I finally decided.
    I voted for Saved By Zero.

    I can see that Red Skies is stealing the show though.
    Another great song indeed.

    Yeah, I see this thread is pretty much redundant now but, whatever...can't choose a favourite song!

    I now have "Phantoms" and "I Will" is sensational.

    If I were to rank the 5 albums I have so far, I'd go with:

    Elemental (simply wonderful all the way through)
    Shuttered Room
    Phantoms
    Want That Life
    Reach The Beach (I'm with you on that one, dejapete)

    Talking Heh!

    It's been so long since I voted that I can't remember which one I voted for!

    Oops!

    By the way, Robert, "I Will" is phenomenal on there. For me, it's the end of "Phantom Living". . . I have an old cassette that had once gotten stuck in my tape deck that I painstakingly removed for fear of losing it, only to be pleasantly surprised that the place where my fingers touched it gave that ending a more surreal sound, like it fades in and out like voices!
