And which songs are the ones which steer your preference?
Reasons: Sparky's Dream and Star Sign.
Radio, Going Places, Fear of Flying and Gene Clark to that list.
Alcoholiday, Norman 3, I don't want control of you, cells, Mellow Doubt...
that's a gorgeous little song.
Guiding Star, Sparky's Dream, Don't Look Back, Ain't that enough, I need direction, Near You...
wrote that one too. This is becoming a bit of a 'Love love-in' but I still like Norm the best. Go Norm!
Neil Jung. Awesome.
2. Sparky's Dream
3. Ain't That Enough
5. Guiding Star/Don't Look Back/Radio
Sparky's Dream being the main reason.
Norman's written some great tunes, but the blowjobbing he gets in this review - http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=10:fjfyxq9gldde - is baffling to me. Even more so now, seeing the Love love on DiS. All of the best songs on Thirteen are the ones written by Gerry.
then Gerry takes over.
Undoubtedly one of the greatest collections of songwriters ever with all of them churning out classics over the course of the last 20 years
