TBOPP isn't one of my favourites off the album, if I had to choose I'd go with Books Are Burning, Humble Daisy, The Smartest Monkeys & The Disappointed.

I'm with you on this Adam, The Smartest Monkey, The Disappointed and Dear Madam Barnum for me.

Peter Pumpkinhead is a very clever song and like a lot of XTC, probably a bit too much for the geral radio-listening public.

Good to see that "Dear God" was no. 10 in the most controversial songs of all time!
If Karen Carpenter had eaten Mama Cass' sandwich they'd both still be alive today!

I tried to make him laugh, He didn't get the joke, and then he said I wasn't right in the head.
