    Can somebody please explain something. How could VH put those two absolutely terrible songs at the end of Fair Warning? I mean, the album is incredible up until that point. I'd rather hear Ed fart than listen to Sunday Afternoon or One Foot Out The Door.

    I think it just has to do with what was going on at the time, Jerry. A lot of anger behind the scenes, and Ed and Donn Landee working late at night with nobody around. That's definitely Ed you hear in those two tracks.
    They may not be the best they've put out, but "One Foot Out The Door" gets me charged up every time, and if it weren't for "Sunday Afternoon", Mike wouldn't have Bass solo material.

    'One Foot Out the Door' was titled perfectly because it was a last section addition to the album from what I've heard. Not one of the better tunes on the album put the outro is awesome!

    I personally like both those songs, they're weird sounding and dark.
    Ed's solo on One Foot Out the Door is amazing!
