Title: Man Media Player

I think what you really need is some sort of Media Player on the Manband Archive.

Stable door. Horse. Bolted. That sorta thing ya mean?.

I'm trying to source some video clips too, but for now just the studio and live clips. I restricted myself very sternly to just one track per album, and hopefully just one version. May not be able to stick to that last bit, there are too many good versions of great songs to play with.

I may well re-instate the "best track" polls as well, to keep the playlist changing from time to time.

Misses cue...

Oh, Yes! Good idea! Squeal! How about 'Born With A Future', 'Daughter Of The Fireplace' and 'Someone Is Calling' to start off with?

Seriously Jules - it's great, much appreciated.

If only you'd asked for "C'mon" and "Stuck Behind The Popemobile" too, I could've helped...

C'mon would be fine.. Bollocks, that's my blinkered views again, mental note - must be more tolerant to other peoples likes, and not cast out my dislikes..

Hi Pete. You'll find "C'mon" is already there.

This thread was something of a private joke between Nick and myself. Nick was suggesting things I'd already done (it's a bit like having your own advertising campaign, but in a slightly more surreal style) and I was replying in kind. Just goes to show where private jokes take you.....

In deference to your high-tolerance strategy I've loaded the short version from Friday 13th on video (Man on screen), but in recognition of your real preferences I've loaded the long version from BITF in audio (Man on stage).

In my case Davey approximately 35,000,000 times, give or take a thousand.

For me 'BWAF' was a bit of a talisman....a song that I thought was really very good despite being different from what had happened before. I was so hopeful for the future of the band at this point as I thought this was now truly a progression.

i like the way micky sings it differently every time-peace-davey

Of course he does. And the way he plays it....he really was that good, just a natural. We are not worthy!

Is it my imagination or have more songs been added to the Man Media Player? Or both? Or neither?   ???

It's just your imagination.
