It's a shame you gave up so quickly as the progression further into the song when played with the actual elbows is really quite a spectacular musical moment! Laughing

Can't help but agree with Audience with the Pope. I skip it too.

But definitely "least favourite" rather than "worst".

I have come to the conclusion that there is only 1 song that I can't listen to - Powder Blue / Andy Votel mix. As soon as I hear the duck call at the beginning I have to turn it off - it's barking mad! Is this Garv's fascination for birds gone a bit too far...?

Well, yea, that duck sounds quite silly for a dreamy song like Powderblue. But I got used to it thinking it could be meant as Party noises when the cold-turkey-couple marries... I think the "Broken elbow dub" of Fallen Angel is worse because almost nothing of the original is recognisable... Razz

Ugh..Choises..Either Snooks, because of the loud noises a minute in, but I do love the melody and the lyrics. Or Crawling with idiot, it kinda feels boring to listen to it.

Why the hate on Not a job? I love that one! ''The dream again nobody understands, walking through the long grass on your hands''

Sorry if I misheard the lyrics Embarassed

I agree about the lyrics of Not a Job but for me the sound is kind of too MOR. I didn't start liking this song until I heard the acoustic version on the B-side of the Grace Under Pressure EP, when yes I realised how good the lyrics are and what a good song it is behind that overall glossy sound that put me off it.
OTOH Snooks is one of my personal favourites, loud bits an' all Wink

ahhh this is probably the most civilised "worst song thread" i ever seen on a board.

anywho,
I think Bitten is one of my worst ones. Well I like it, but not all the time. I have to be in the "right mood" for it.

But it has to be said I love Bitten, in most moods... Wink

Bitten is really good, I love the drum beat and the guitar parts, somehow it reminds me of what an ancient tribe would make, without the lyrics and the guitar and other modern instruments.

Lady (Lay Down Your Cross) is the Elbow song I can stand the least.

But seriously, why is An Audience With The Pope mentioned, it's one of their best Question

On later opinion, Lay Down Your Cross is quite spectacular, are there any poor Elbow songs?

There really is no such thing as a worst Elbow song. They don't seem to be capable of doing anything poorly. And in my rosy-eyed opinion, Guy Garvey simply can't do any wrong at all. He could sing a Spice Girls song and make it sounded frickin' awesome.

The only song I will sometimes skip when I am in the company of others is Snooks, because I will invariably have complaints at the weird noises. Very Happy Same with Flying Dream 143 I guess. Poor old Cast of Thousands got both mentions there.

This is a little like picking which one of your babies you want to let be killed. I don't want to play this game, thank you very little...

I don't know. However, i think the worst Elbow song is still a decent song.

That makes perfect sense!
I always like to think that I love some songs a little more than others. Wink

Leaders of the Free World: waht do you think about the song? I think it's the "worst" song of the record. I'm crazy? It seems a bit generic.

I love it! It's a George W. Bush protest song and mocks him as a little boy. Smile

Oh yes!
I would definitely not count that as one of my least favourites.
Erm...does that make sense? Confusing myself here! Embarassed
Anyway, I love it.

Absolutely agree, it's the music - the 'arrangement' to be precise - Status Quo on morphine. I'm sure that re-arranged they could deliver a far superior version to the one on the album.
My biggest 'gripe' track is probably "Audience With The Pope" which to me feels soooo average when compared to the rest of TSSK.
