Actually, Billie Holiday's is my favorite.

Speaking of which, EC's Love for Sale or Lady Day's Love for Sale?

Of course it is that's why it wasn't a choice. As revenge I'll choose Billie Holiday's 'More Than You Know'. 8)

Everyone else:
EC's Love for Sale or Lady Day's Love for Sale?

Great question WHAR and a very difficult choice.

Big Tears, only for the line "All the buttons on my overcoat, they have fallen off one by one".

Chewing Gum, by far. Great work from D12, especially the end bit that always makes me think of Sketches Of Spain. One of my two favourite guitarists Marc Ribot is excellent on both, of course. Great to know he's on the new Tom Waits CD and that Elvis hasn't given up on him either ("Impatience") - WHY NOT MAKE HIM A TOURING IMPOSTER?

I played Pads, Paws & Claws in a minor arrangement pretty close to After The Fall in a pub once, and it took the small but dedicated audience quite awhile to figure out it wasn't an altogether serious story. But they got it before the "climactic" screech. I wish I would've been here for the tribute. I also do a Moseallisonesque Pump It Up from time to time. And without further ado -

The Comedians (GCW) or Joe Porterhouse (GCW)?

I don't wanna but in after every post here, but I like this one especially.

Joe Porterhouse. I recently (just yesterday) fell in love with this song. I love it. The chorus is brilliant. Oh that GCW.
