    If you would like hear a great Madness CD, you should try The Bussiness. It is a 3 CD collection of their greatest and there are also some interviews with the bandmembers. The interviews are old ones from the 80's. Real great to hear what they where expecting to happen to Madness in the futere.

    I voted for "It Must Be Love", but there are so many great ones. I also like "Rise And Fall" from their self-titled CD and also "The Sun And The Rain".

    Btw, I already meantioned it in the A-Z thread in 80s List, check out their website www.madness.co.uk. I don't have much clue about making websites but this one looks like quite a piece of work to me! It has a lot of cool and funny little features to play around. I am totally amazed!

    I voted for "Our House" because it's the only song I know by Madness.

    "Our House" was my choice, because it brings back good memories of that time. My second choice would be "House of Fun", if only for the hilariously bad video.

    Our House was the most familiar to me, but I do recognize House of Fun, as well.

    One Step Beyond gets the vote, with a close second to Our House.

    Re: Best Madness song?

    I prefer their mid-period hits including all the singles from Keep Moving. Unlike a lot of their ska peers, they had a great ear for a strong melody, which became more pronounced as time went on. In fact, their musical identity became so mixed-up at that point, One Better Day sounds like Sade!

    Re: Best Madness song?

    Was lucky to see them play at a concert here in town about 5 years or so ago. Great band and great songwriting. I'm going to have to check out their new album, The Dangermen Sessions. Anyhow, "It Must Be Love" is my personal favorite because there is a hint of darkness to it (as the end of most relationships tend to.) I'd follow that by "Grey Day" and "Wings Of A Dove (A Celebratory Song.)"

    Re: Best Madness song?

    If you asked me this question in the 80's I would immediately have answered "one step beyond" but in the meantime I listed to this song SO many times that I have to choose "our house" nowadays
