Just for the interest. How many rats and solo Bob's 12 ins singles do you all have? For the rats I have 8. Geldof I have 5. And one Gung ho. one.

Looking after no one. Someone's looking at you.House on fire. Charmed lives. Tonight. Drag me down. Dave. A hold of me.

 Fair play I only have the UK one's. I was surprised back in the day that Mondays didn't come out in 12 ins?

Same here. I only got them because it was the rats. I don't have any other ones. Unless it's to go with the band or any of the band's solo stuff. Geldofs are. This is the world calling. Love like a rocket. The great song of indifferents.  Love or something else.A gospel song.

 How does the US version of Skin on Skin differ to the UK version Mike?

 Nice one.  I loved tonight. Through that would have been a hit. In my opinion like so many of the rats singles very underrated.
