    I'd have to disagree with you there Roem, I thought they kind of diluted it and softened it up.

    Lightbulb West End Girls

    West End Girls

    Just something about the slow, drawn out intro that leads into the rest of the song that just sends chills down my spine.
    Perhaps the beginning is so slow and "minor chord" to me that it sounds depressing and thus reminds me of Kira.

    Exclamation

    West End Girls was clearly one of the defining songs of the '80s but I like What Have I Done to Deserve This sver so slightly more.

    I just LOVE the way they did Always On My Mind. I love that song from a lot of people but they did a great job. I have their DVD. It's trippy but this song turned out GREAT on it!

    Great Poll This Charming Man!

    I have yet to discover a PSB song I dont like and they rank up there with Prefab Sprout as my favourite English Bands of the 80's.

    I voted for "Left to my own Devices" who else could combine

    "Che Guevara and Debussy to a Disco Beat"??????

    Pure Class!!!!!

    Sprouty, that's why I invited you to my island. You picked the same song I did and that's my favorite line. When are you going to put up a PreFab Sprout Poll? BTW isn't it Albuquerque?

    Yeah, if you can put up with "My Ever Changing Moods".

    Unfortunately, I don't think many of us in the states have heard of PreFab Sprout. It's a shame!

    Suburbia! Loved it then, still love it now. My second choice would have been Rent.

    I wasn't able to vote. I had some error. But I'd go for...um... it's hard to choose! I'd say "Always On My Mind" as I totally flipped over that song. I still do and I'm surprised that more people like it. I thought I was the only one who liked it.

    As for "Where The streets Have No Name/I Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You" (now that's gotta be their longest song title!), I prefer that to the originals. Two covers in one song. Same goes for their cover for "Go West". Better than the original IMO.

    "What Have I Done to Deserve This" - classic drinking tune (but then again, I guess they all are!)

    Oh I had to go with "What have I done to deserve this?"

    Love the collaberation with Dusty.

    I had a friend that gave me a video with a bunch of PSB videos on it, I think I wore that tape out. I played it so much.

    West End Girls probably would be my second choice.

    Does anyone remember which video they had that had the vampire in it? Was it heart? I can't remember now, and I'm sure my video collection is gone now...

    Yes, that one was Heart.
