    Default "A different kind of truth" best 3 songs?

    Ive been listening to the VH 6 pack and this album a bit of late in my car. At first "As is" was the one song that I loved most, cause of that killer intro, but 4 years later, I'm loving "Big River" the best. I think its got a killer vibe, really upbeat and a real band effort.

    My top 3 are-
    Big River
    As is
    Beats workin"
    What is understood need not be discussed

    "Dont disturb my paradise. I've asked you once. I've asked you nice" - "SERIOUS JU JU"

    "I am in a blissful state. Dont bug me!!!" - Richard Dreyfuss "The Goodbye girl" 1977

    Beats Workin'....the song just has some great hooks, I know DLR's voiceless bother some, but not me...got a kick out of the double-meaning of lyrics the beat works for the song and making music (doing what you love for a living) beats workin'

    She The Woman...love the bass on the into and Eddie squealing befor Alex tumbles in and then they start that crunchy groove.

    3rd? Toss up between Outta Space, Blood and Fire, Big River, As Is (I'd have mentioned China Town, but this song fell flat so many times live that I can't get past it)...HoneyBaby (although I'm certain I'm in the minority on liking this song...)

    I don't believe i've listened to ADKOT all year. Still grooving on II and WACF.

    To answer the thread question:

    Stay Frosty

    Well when I first got it, it was She's the Woman, You and Your Blues and Big River
    I've since replaced Big River ( I still want it to be big trouble)
    Now
    She's the Woman
    Stay Frosty
    You and your Blues

    Trouble with Never is very close to cracking the top 3 for me, I've really been digging that song lately

    1. As Is- awesome intro, classic double bass work, great boogie riffs from Ed, terrific lyrics and vocals from Dave.

    2. Beats Workin- epic intro, typically clever double meaning lyrics from Dave, classic breakdown, epic intro and Ed's fadeout is the perfect way to end the album.

    3. Blood And Fire- Ripley, reflective and uplifting lyrics and vocals, one of Ed's greatest solos ever, love the big Who-like power chords and tom fills that climax the solo.

    Why would your #4 piss people off?
    If you like it, you like it.

    You and Your Blues comes this close on all the "best of" lists, for me.
    Riffs, lyrics, chorus, harmonies, etc.

    I loved it from the first time I heard it. Still do...
