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.

I think I have this, says Special Disco Mix or something on it. Don't think it's any different to previous versions I've heard. Just saw it in the Oxfam shop years ago for 89p

 Mood Mambo really doesn't do it for me. I'm playing Mondo Bongo CD in the car this week. Stand out tracks are the UK singles, Go Man Go, Hurt Hurts, Straight Up. Average tracks : Please Don't Go, Whitehall 1212.

I know what you mean it is an album of two halves some brilliant some good some not so good but still don't mind playing it I've heard a lot worse off other artists I think I have most of the12inches available always keeping an eye open for anything different though
