23 Tired of Waiting for You

Such a brilliant song that has inspired many equally excellent covers. This should be higher!

Their 2nd No1 single a very different sound to the first a bit more laid back with lyrics of sadness about waiting for someone you love.

24 Living On a Thin Line

Great song for dave

25 Good Day
26 Alcohol
27 20th Century Man

Got me through my period of alienation

28 See My Friends

In my opinion, this song belongs on the first page, if not the top ten. Has a very unique sound which drew the attention of the likes of Pete Townshend. I love the themes of loneliness and grief expressed in this song. Was one of the few songs at the time that Ray was proud of. Please vote for this song!

29 Starstruck

It's stuck forever in 0,8% and I have been given it my votes for months now. Fix this problem, please, it's not cool!

The chorus is absolutely unmatched.

30 Sweet Lady Genevieve
31 Animal Farm
32 How Did I Get Close
33 Come Dancing


Good song

34 Till the End of the Day
35 Arthur
36 Picture Book
37 Sittin in the Midday Sun
38 Apeman

Unbelievably catchy, still topical, and with the best openly-critical-of-vegetarianism lyric ever

39 Death of a Clown

The intro is sublime and it just gets better from there


40 Set Me Free
