I got a big goddamn kick out of seeing it live a few years ago. I get what you're saying, Stip. There is something about it that's so unapologetic and goofy about it. It's a terrible song but a hard song to hate. But it can't begin to compare to the other songs of its era.

:lol:

For me, it's just too innocuous to hate. But, fair enough.

Yeah that's true. I really don't care for it either way.

I used to have that framed picture in my office. It was a cheap frame though and didn't survive the move. I should reframe it.

I just ranked the songs in another thread:

1. All Or None
2. Love Boat Captain
3. I Am Mine
4. Thumbing My Way
5. Can't Keep
6. Save You
7. Cropduster
8. 1/2 Full
9. You Are
10. Arc
11. Green Disease
12. Ghost
13. Get Right
14. Bushleaguer
15. Help, Help

That got me thinking about retracking the album. I can hardly make it through Help, Help. But even songs like Ghost and Green Disease are songs I enjoy. I would say both have greatness in them, but falls a bit short. I do like the b sides though, especially Other Side. I know when it comes to mood and lyrics there may be some complaints, but I'm mostly going for a good sound. Songs that fit together sonically.

1. Get Right
2. Ghost
3. Undone
4. I Am Mine
5. Thumbing My Way
6. Can't Keep
7. Save You
8. Other Side
9. Love Boat Captain
10. You Are
11. Cropduster
12. 1/2 Full
13. Down
14. Green Disease
15. All Or None

I dont like Riot Act but I do love love love All or None.

Thumbing my Way is my second favorite

Save You, Can't Keep, and Love Boat Captain are all good.

Otherwise I dont like much but I think Get Right would be good on a stronger album

I really thought we turned a collective corner here at RM regarding Help Help. I'm absolutely devastated to see so many people still standing at the station instead of hopping on the train.
