Life's Too Short. Can't understand why such a great song wasn't on any album. :smt017 :?: :smt102

Seconded.
Never say goodbye,
For we'll all be with you someday,
Fond adieus but never say goodbye

I'm liking this a lot recently - It's got that Stranglers snarl and menace.

Shut Up - yes , though I think it would only be suitable in style for NMH .
Maninwhite - another odd one , probably stylistically not fitting with any album , even MIB , though deserves an album slot IMO
Straighten out - HOW is this not on an album ( compilations & live excepting )
Rokit to the moon - MIB, B&W ?
Fools Rush Out - good enough for an album again .
Since you went away - good enough for Dreamtime .
Vietnamerica - stylistically MIB material , it was on a USA album release though , great song .

Funny all these songs , which at the time they must have considered throw away material - too good to lose but not strong enough for albums - bet they wish they could do stuff like that as easily now . Shows just how bloody good they were .
All quiet ..........

This is another Stranglers song, which I got really into lately.

Absolutely, it was the first song I thought of seeing the thread title. Love the guitar/keyboard outro, faded out too soon.

Cool Danny .... good enough for most M2 albums IMO - and this is going to get a bit controvertial - better than most of Giants IMO.
There's some quite strong material on these b- sides and throw away songs - I think you could make one very good rareties album out of it all .

Here and There...the great lost song. Should have been on Feline instead of Tango (worst song ever, apart from the fact Hugh is singing about a tango to a waltz time)

Instead of This.

It's a no contest too...which says a lot considering the strength of others on the list.
Hmmmm...
