    The sunset colors of the sky is an interesting idea too. I'm admittedly influenced by my own experiences, so I never thought of that.

    I grew up in a New England seaport town. We don't have ocean sunsets. Instead, for me, romance would be a guy in a sweater, walking on a beach on a chilly, blustery day with waves crashing around and flags on the boardwalk threatening to come loose from their ropes. But that's just me.

    It's really cool to see how each person's interpretation of a line in a song varies based on their own lives and experiences.

    When you put it that way, it indeed sounds very romantic, Windeagle.

    My top 3 are Dirty Laundry, Talking To The Moon and Lilah. The rest I haven't heard enough to rank - yet.

    DL will always be special for the memories of dancing in the aisle at Rod Laver... (the rest of the audience was SITTING DOWN!!! )

    That is the one bad thing about being in front. People aren't getting up, so you can't either.

    As with LWH, I am not crazy about the 'tura lura lura' ending of Lilah.
    I'm with you on these parts, Fp.

    When I first heard this line I was amazed that Don would sing about the toaster!

    I'm with you guys on all the stuff in the last post, but I don't hate Johnny Can't Read. I still like what the song says, there's a school girl fantasy to the video and it's Don at his worst acting. He couldn't act his way out of a paper bag, but he could sure as hell sing his way out of one.

    I pretty much agree with Brooke's list, except I have to move my funeral song up to # 4 & put JCR where that was.

    Okay - First of all, I have to apologize for the delay in posting the results of our I Can't Stay Still poll. Sorry Don, but I got delayed cause your one of your bandmates played a little gig that I had to go see. There were several folks who commented or posted partial lists, but I only counted those who actually posted a full list. As it stands now, we actually have a couple of ties. So - without further delay, here's the standings as they are now ...

    1. Dirty Laundry - 69 points
    2. Lilah - 69 points
    3. Talking To the Moon - 67 points
    4. Long Way Home - 44 points
    5. Nobody's Business - 44 points
    6. The Unclouded Day - 40 points
    7. You Better Hang Up - 33 points
    8. I Can't Stand Still - 29 points
    9. La Eile - 26 points
    10. Them and Us - 24 points
    11. Johnny Can't Read - 17 points

    So congratulations to our top vote-getters so far, Dirty Laundry and Lilah!!!

    Thanks to those who participated. As I said earlier, if anyone else wants to still post their list, it's not too late. Go right ahead - I'll update the standings if this happens. Since the results are so close right now, each person's list can definitely change the results.

    Wow, I'm really surprised Lilah beat Talking to the Moon!

    I listened to the top 3 this morning (admittedly off the Inside Job Live DVD since it was handy), and each of them was my favourite when it was playing... until the next one started...
