Since You Went Away - I love this song. It should have been a double A-sided release, and that way this song may have received some airplay. A hidden gem in my opinion.

Norman Normal for me. Excellent song but would'nt have fitted on Dreamtime so had to settle for being a B-side.

Never even read the choices, just checked that Shut Up was there before I voted for it.
What were the other choices? :grin:

Surely Vietnamerica is the best b-side? (London Lady would be, but doesn't count since it's an album track too.

Has to be Shut Up.

I suffer with terrible ear wax and to check that everything is groovy in that department and I am hearing well, I run through the bass intro out load.

Try it, it really does work if you suffer from the same affliction.

Apart from that............it's more of a 'punk' song than New Rose!
