I voted for In The End but hard to choose. However here's my favourites : Jump Over My Shadow, In A While, Tonight, Disappear (from Heaven or Hell EP) Valley Of The Birds, Wonderful Land, In The End, No Reason, Wet Afternoon, Money, And The Boat Sails By & She Gave It All.

Interesting that a lot of fans rate 'Still Life' highly - I quite like it but with the exception of Lies & Deception prefer it to every other track on 'About Time'.

TTD, Money, Sinister, Wonderful Land, In The End to name but a few are all great tracks, Very hard to pick a best one though. :smile:

Time to die. Timeless classic should be intro tape to all post Hugh gigs.

I've voted for Time To Die, although I think there was something wrong with John Ellis guitar playing on that one. But I'm surprised nobody ask for "Miss You", on the Coup de Grace album. Sung by JJ, beautiful nostalgic sweet & sour song... Could be dedicated to Hugh, maybe.

Time to Die, although there's plenty of good 'uns.
I wouldn't normally say or post anything remotely bad about the Stranglers but I have to say I was pleased to see that no-one voted (so far) for Golden Boy, I think that is a very sub-standard Stranglers song to say the least.

I quite like Golden Boy. I remember them playing it live at Tower records when About Time was released and it sounded awesome. I think the worst mark 2 song is miss you off written in red. Utter shite! Oh and summer in the city. Why they played that at the albert hall i will never know :roll:

A couple of years ago I was flicking through the music channels on TV and on came Golden Boy! I couldn't believe it.

In Heaven She Walks - I rememeber seeing it on Sunday before it was released (the following day) on VH1 and I remember thinking "wow this is pretty melodic" and thought they got their mojo back again. Alas it was not to be (well as far as the public were concerned).
