    Good topic by the way - am amazed at the differences in the lists. My list isn't based on my view of the relative strength of each song (so I don't like TS more than SUL for example) but rather what each song meant for the album - TS meant more to TRE than HAAR did to BB.

    an interesting way to look at it, bonlives - and it would certainly make a difference to the way you look at it.

    I'll go with: -

    SUL
    Thunder
    RnR Train
    HAAR
    Heatseeker

    All great songs though....

    In terms of how excited I was by them...


    Thunderstruck - was just blown away by the awesomeness of this track, and how much my then girlfriend was affected by real r'n'r ....ah good times :)


    R'n'R Train - brilliant 'comeback', just fantastic to hear them again after thinking that maybe they were done.


    The other 3 were all a little disappointing in their immediate impact.  Although hearing Heatseeker on Radio 1 was brilliant. And the best thing about SUL was when Mark and Lard made it their single of the week on their afternoon Radio 1 show!

    Funny how the lead singles are always the first track on the album.

    Its so that as soon as they play it the casual fans know their mums have bought the right cd for them.

    All GREAT tracks but if I have to rank them...

    thunderstruck
    heatseeker
    rock'n roll train
    stiff upper lip
    hard as a rock

    Bonlives, this would be a good poll, just include every album (the early bon ones might be hard though)

  10.  

    IMO you should have included Who Made Who in this topic as well, that song was a huge hit for the band and helped set them up for their commercial comeback in the late '80s and early '90s.

  11.  

    I dont care what anybody says, thats a great track. some of the best guitar work they did in that era (83-88)
