For me it would be (in no particular order):
1. Sentimental Fool
2. A Really Good Time
3. Sunset
4. The Bogus Man
5. Just Like You
6. Stronger Through the Years
7. Nightingale
8. 2HB
9. Mother of Pearl
10. Re-Make/Re-Model

I'll probably change my mind in a minute.

Both yer list and the journo`s list in the link to me is highly debatable and speaks of consensus and received wisdom. Where`s is the list with a personal twist? I think yer A Really Good Time, Sunset, The Bogus Man and Nightingale are a bit dubious. It would never fit in with AM radio.

AM radio be damned. :lol:

These are the Roxy tunes that especially float my boat.

Angel Eyes for me! A rare view of Paul Thompson at the end of the clip.

I believe this is the most comprehensive survey.

Phew! Quite a list. However, I`ve never "gotten" Just Another High. -A tedious country song, imo.

I've always had a soft spot for 'JAH'; great lyrics, rock solid drumming and a very long fade out that brings a fine album to an exquisite end.

'Whirlwind', on the other hand, is a bloody racket!!!

I really like Just Another High. I read BF saying at the time of the Siren tour that they weren’t able to play (recreate) the best songs from the album live: which would suggest BF thought the best songs were End of the Line, Just Another High and Could it Happen to Me which of course he played live in 1977.

‘Just Another High’ was played the second night at Leeds University Union. I was there both nights and have recordings of both nights. I do not know if it was played anywhere else on the ‘Siren’ tour.

Any chance you could share a copy of the recordings? I have always loved Just Another High. Relevant lyrics to me on several fronts.
