we'll probably end by naming each and every song :alice:
the more titles I read I go "oh yeah, how could I not have mentioned that one.
Just listened to Sanctuary and Pick up the bones and would also like to mention "every woman has a name" (he could easily have made a hit out of this one with the right promotion !)
you really wouldn't understand..

How about for it's 11th anniversary "Keepin' Halloween Alive" - not one of my "go to" songs but, well worth the download.
I have a mix Cd that I play while handing out goodies to the Ghosts & Goblins.
It fits well with Bauhaus, White Zombie, Metallica etc.
Track #1 :ghostface:

Can't Sleep Clowns Will Eat Me is a favourite of mine. I also think Eat Some More is overlooked somewhat.

I think Flatline is the best thing from WTMN2 and Pretty Ballerina is the best song on Dirty Diamonds.

This house is haunted, I actually used this as the basis for the kids I was teaching to devise a play.
He's back. I don't like much from this era but have a soft spot for this song.

Can't disagree on WTMN2, lot's of hype & vids to match but, weak in expressing (& continuing) the concept. DD is hit & miss. For me, a handful of songs that I like.
Pretty Ballerina is one of them.
I also like Steal That Car!

Given the general views of W2MN it looks like I can safely add I Am Made Of You, When Hell Comes Home and Last Man on Earth to this thread.

It's only guesswork of course but I've never encountered anyone that shared my passion for Wonder Who's Loving Her Now, a song I was mildly obsessed by (especially the solo) when I first got hold of the Battle of the Bands bootleg single.

I love "WOLHN"! Also check out from around the same era "I Can Only Give Her Me"-very Yardbird-ish


Some of my odd choices would be "Laughing at Me". "No More Love at Your Convenience", "Millie and Billie", "Life and the Death of the Party", "Six Hours", "Changing Arranging" and "I Like Girls".
"I need everything the world owes me..."

i always hated this song, was always more Scooby Doo than something creepy. Maybe thats what he was going for, but it never resonated with me.

I think it is a good song. I like it when Alice trys to do something different with his voice and he sounds otherworldly here.

So many top tier songs mentioned already. Little By Little, Former Lee Warmer, Going Home, Wake Me Gently etc.

Guessing the songs I like more than most other fans is Die For You. Easily one of my all times favorite songs. Every aspect down to the arrangement of the backing vocals is pure genius.

I'm not sure what constitutes as Alice songs you like more than most other fans do. I'm guessing its the more discreet songs that probably don't ever get played live or were never releases as singles. I'll do my worst.
Never Been Sold Before
You Gotta Dance
Wish You Were Here
Millie and Billie
Skeletons in the closet
This Maniacs In Love With You
Love's a Loaded Gun
Wind Up Toy
It's Me
Pick up the Bones
Gimme

I think Pass The Gun Around is starting to get the acclaim it rightly deserves.

I'm The Coolest: Some of the tastiest guitar work on Goes To Hell. Sand dancer, c'monnnnnnnn.

King Of The Silver Screen: The first of Cooper's transvestite trilogy. It's kitschy and I love it!

I Never Wrote Those Songs: I could live without the sax but I just love the lyrical viewpoint. Maybe the earliest example of Alice breaking the third wall in song?

Adaptable: Hooks all over the place and the tongue-in-cheek lyrics together is a highlight from ZCS.

How refreshing all these suggestions : would make some fantastic "not-greatest-hits" Cds , proving that Alice and the ACG are some much more than NMMNG, SO, BDB and so on..
you really wouldn't understand..

I am going to add Scarlett and Sheba. I think this would be the one song from Dada that would work brilliantly live.
