    Great idea for a poll - although it seems many of my favorite's, 'Up The Junction' etc. were missing...I actually voted for Annie Get Your Gun 'cos my friend got to play some keyboards on it! Also, i'm not embarrassed to say that i once owned Cool For Cats on a Pink Vinyl 45!

    I voted for Tempted. I remember the video w/the gals dancing in it. Although I must confess that as a teenager, I never really got into that song. When I was in my 20's I got into some blues, 50's jazz and some of british blues bands from the 60's like The Animals and I started to like Tempted.

    I agree! - if u lived in the uk during that time 'cool for cats' was the ultimate innovative new wave song. These guys were the kings of double meaning within their lyrics. Hourglass was almost a beautiful swan-song for them. Up the junction would be another favorite, but i guess you'd have to be an old british ex-pat like me to understand that!lol!

    WHAT?????????? No mention of either "Another Nail in My Heart" or "Pulling Mussels from a Shell".

    So, I went for Tempted.

    the video for 'another nail...' was amongst the 1st i ever saw, waaay before i got MTV. who were these dudes pushing a piano down the street? i was immediately hooked. along with the aforementioned, i'd include 'there at the top'. 'argybargy' is pretty good, but i think 'east side story' is even better. sadly, they lost me halfway through 'sweets from a stranger'. the imagery in their lyrics, to the American eye, was mindboggling, to say the least. i can remember the duo being labelled "the next Lennon/McCartney". difford crammed so much food for thought into 3 minutes.

    and from 'east side story' (the album came with a sticker on the wrapper that said "100% Beat - No Filler"):

    in quintessance: "smokes himself into double vision; leaves his mind on an indecision; thinks that he invented imagination; says that God is some relation" AND closing with "... makes for something special on your football shirt, in quintessance")

    woman's world: "fed up with the glory she abdicates her title, sitting at a bar stool she gives the day's recital. the family watch in horror as she staggers up the hallway. makes herself a sandwich as they're looking through the doorway"

    picadilly. this tune is pure candy. "she's not a picture above somebody's fire. she sits in her towel with a purple hairdryer. she waits to get even with me. she hooks up her cupcakes and puts on her jumper, explains that she'll be late to her worrying mother. she meets me in Picadilly" cupcakes? became a trendy phrase du-jour in our junior high. and what about, "The cab took us home through a night I'd not noticed; the neon club lights of adult films and Trini Lopez; my arm around her but my acting was hopeless..."? who comes up with pearls like that?

    had there been an 'Other' option for the poll, i would've voted for 'picadilly', but there wasn't, so i went with 'annie get your gun'.

    great lyrics... euphemisms and slang, risque themes, flavorful imagery, all served over great hooks.

    As many before me Tempted...as second I would choose "cool for cats" which is strangely not in the list or was it a 70's song...
