Worst song on Coup De Crap / Coup Disgrace

So many of these polls have obvious answers, so I thought I'd make a legitimately difficult one.

Well? :grin:

Miss You for me even the music for it sounds dreary.

I know we're joking here and taking the piss but yeah it's not their greatest moment.

There was No Reason to make this album.

Or perhaps it was Known Only Unto God why they just couldn't see The Light.

They just didn't think that What They Did Was Wong, but I'm glad that In The End they applied the Coup De Grace on the really shitty mk2 era.

And then I started going to the gigs again and Jumping Over my Shadow to the great Stranglers music again....

And I soon realised then that God is Good after all..


ok sorry I'll shut the fuck up now...

Actually I don't really mind all of the songs on this album. I've got more of a problem with Miss you and Summer in the city from Written in Bed.

I actually like this album which is a bit weird I guess cos it’s not brilliant but I broke up with an ex-model Female Woman at the time and was listening to this a lot and it reminds me of her and those times good and bad.

I guess thats an interesting angle, liking or not liking an album cos of how It made you feel at the time as apposed to just liking it cos of the music? Or is that the same thing?
Well I dunno really cos there’s lots of albums that can take you back to times good and bad, innit?

100% on this - lots of Stranglers tracks are demarcation points of past relationships.

Voted for God is Good - never really 'got' that. Tonight would be my nr 2. Still, there are some gems there - The Light, Coup, Jump, In the End - not bad at all to my ears. Would have been a better album if some of John and Pauls songs were included (controversial!)

Yes I agree with all of that.

For me, a definitive low point in the Stranglers is “Miss You”.
Musically awful but to my mind, the sad fact is that they were so lacking in interest by this point, they failed to notice they had a song with the same title on the previous album.

The sort of situation that could have been a deleted scene from Spinal Tap.
