    Default Amsterdam vs. Runaround

    Both killer tunes from the Sammy era, both excellent tunes, as much as I like the energy of Runaround, I can't help but admire the overall playing of Amsterdam, Ed'd rhythm playing is outstanding in this tune, as well the off beats that Al is throwing in are excellent as well, lyrics aside, I am going with Amsterdam.

    Amsterdam. The lyrics are kind of stupid, but that guitar tone is unbeleivable!

    I like Runaround between these two, I think the song has more personality and I like the guitar sound, on Balance the production is great, I am just not overly impressed with all the pitch shifting the Ed had on that album and tour.

    Easily Runaround. Amsterdam has some of Sammy's worst lyrics.

    I've gotta go with "Amsterdam". That's gotta be some of the best guitar work I've ever heard!
    So you broke down, trying to leave town, I broke down crying on your return. You left me feeling hopeful, I'll never see your face again. You made for a bad lover's liver. You stole all the covers and busted my head. You made me such an asshole, I wish we'd never met. I'm tired of being bored. I'm through with the headaches. Hiding my hands that tremble like earthquakes. Under the table, under the daytime sky, Good Fucking Bye- Good Fucking Bye, Alkaline Trio

    No Contest... Runaround "wham bams" Amsterdam by a country mile. Amesterdam is Lyrically terriable. Even the rest of the band hated the lyrics and MTV Said thanks but no thanks. Worst song on Balance.
