I think by now you understand what this involves.
Therefore impossible to be bad
It's really bad. It sounds like a shite Marina b-side. And most of Marina's songs sound like shite b-sides as it is.

Top five, easy.
I agree. Ahead of Epic for Me.
Stripsearch was never released as a single in the UK apparently!
It was on We Care A Lot, their greatest hits! No idea it didn't get a release here, though: such an ace tune.
But then, Without MSG I Am Nothing by mclusky was only planned for release, not actually released, and that was on mcluskyism. Hmm.
Apply Some Pressure> Graffiti> Our Velocity> The Coast Is Always Changing> Hips And Lips> Girls Who Play Guitars> Going Missing> Books From Boxes> I Want You To Stay> The Undercurrents> The Kids Are Sick Again> Questing, Not Coasting> Karaoke Plays> Write This Down
Risingson > Teardrop > Unfinished Sympathy > Karmacoma > Splitting the Atom > Special Cases > Safe From Harm > Protection > Paradise Circus > Inertia Creeps > Angel > Butterfly Caught > Sly > Daydreaming > Be Thankful
Effectiveness as a single is the measure, not the quality of tune. Probably missed a couple.
And if I Against I had been a single, it would be number one.

Haven't heard the others.
Up To Our Hips had two of its worst songs as singles (Can't Get Out of Bed and Jesus Hairdo). Us And Us Only started strong with Forever, possibly their greatest song, but pretty much everything they've done after that has been forgettable.
Me. In Time is there for its B-sides, Occupation h. Monster and Subtitle, which are both twice as good as the A-side. Likewise, Over Rising had Way Up There and Opportunity Three.
Great singles band overall, but there are loads of deep cuts that fell like they should be here too (Toothache, Patrol, With No Shoes etc).
Whole Lotta Love
