Just because it's a Faller at the moment doesn't mean it won't be a Grower again!! Hey - it's only my opinion!!

You're right Leo - for me to distinguish Mirrorball as a Faller was utter madness! Have listened to it again this morning and would now like to officially remove it from my Faller's list and seek forgiveness!!

Mirrorball for me has something in common with Great Expectations and Bombay Bad Boy Pot Noodles. I don't think I'll ever go off it.

My faller is Starlings... I've actually found myself starting the album with Bones of You. My grower is Tower Crane Driver - I seem to get more goosebumps every time I hear it.

GFD has fallen for me. After hearing it live, the mp3 just doesn't cut it. Shame really, cos it was fantastic live.

I had noticed that, there was no CoT at all in Cardiff! I don't know if that means they don't like it, they just have a huge back catalogue!

(Wouldn't have minded Switching Off, though...)

Most Elbow-Songs get me at once but one of the growers for me is Starlings. I still don't like the trumpets that much, but the lyrics are really cool and because I'm a bit in love with a waiter like the man in the lyrics I understand what he means with "Stubborn selfish and too old" because I feel like that when I think of cute Stratos in my Holidayvillage...sigh...
Fallers I haven't yet at Elbow.

Newborn is definitely my grower, after the life affirmingly good performance of it in Leeds! Some more growers... Our Little Boat. Starlings. Crawling With Idiot. Scattered Black and Whites.

Faller? I dunno it's a pretty good time for Elbow and I. Very Happy

I love that good music does this to you.
All of a sudden you just hear the song, like it wasn't there before... it's as if you discovered the record all over again!


loving Weather to Fly especially after the live version in recent gigs! Smile and Forget Myself....
