The Lyrics to Ugly are incredible,the warbling keyboards to Sewer are amazing,the intro to Hangin Around is the best ever,the lead Guitar in London Lady has the "edge"!The Bass in Sometimes just makes you want to fight anyone! But my signature tune from the album is Grip! "Didn"t have the money round to buy a morry thou" I grew up to that one! Pure Class! Dont you feel sorry for those lesser mortals who have never listened to The Stranglers,its as though they have missed out in life poor souls! :lol:

When I first heard Ugly I couldn't make out the most of the lyrics (no internet to inform you in those days) and it wouldn't have been a favourite. Over the years, however, the song has grown on me and now is probably the track I play most from the album. Great lyrics too.
Normally I wouldn't have minded.

This is a hard one. For me all the contenders are the Hugh tracks. I've got fond memories of going in a record shop and asking them to play Goodbye Toulouse because I hadn't heard the album and I just liked title of the song. Me and my mate couldn't believe it when we heard that menacing intro blasting out in the shop. What a fucking sound! 8)

The whole album is great, but I have always loved Ugly and that would just edge ahead.

Difficult to choose a best track on such a consistently great album - sometimes, Toulouse, hangin, grip, ugly are all top class, but ultimately it's gotta be Sewer for me for an all time great epic !

Princess of the Streets, masterpiece of an album.
Never say goodbye,
For we'll all be with you someday,
Fond adieus but never say goodbye
