Default Rank Mirage

1. Straight Back
2. Hold Me
3. That's Alright

This was way harder than I thought. I kept changing my mind. Feel free to scorn me because I don't feel this is truthful for more than a few moments. (then it changes again)

I LOVE:
Love in Store
Book of Love
Gypsy
That's Alright
Straight Back
Eyes of the World

I LIKE:
Hold Me
Wish You Were Here
Can't Go Back
Only Over You

I DISLIKE:
Empire State
Oh Diane

I see I am one of the few that likes Book of Love. I think this is one of Lindsey's few songs where be put his heart on his sleeve. Oh Diane, to me, just doesn't sound like a FM song to me and I don't like Lindsey's voice on it. And it's interesting to see that Stevie's songs rate so high, but I'll be the first to say Lindsey did a phenomenal job with them!

I think I recall Richard saying on Truth & Consequences this song originally came from him. He'd started writing the words to the song (inspired by Mary Torrey Devitto???) and then Lindsey came on board and completed it. RD described it as his most significant songwriting moment. I don't know whether this is true, perhaps Lindsey might say otherwise.

I remember that too, he wrote the lyrics inspired by the break-up with his then girlfriend whose name I don't remember but she was a TV actress who starred in one of those well-known 80's tv dramas. She left him for a South American tycoon or something to that extent, and the heartbreak prompt him to write the words, while Lindsey wad the one who did all the musical part if I remember well.

And I like Book of Love too.

Wow this is hard.

Love in Store - a simple love song but the harmonies still make me melt
Straight Back - pure Stevie magic, the writing, the music, the Christine backing vocals still give me goosebumps
Gypsy - played to death but one of the best Mac songs ever - best bridge on any song
Hold Me - pure pop greatness Amazing piano and melody - great guitar solo too
Wish you were here - love it
Only over you - a dreamy love haze song
That's Alright - could almost be a country cross over
Empire State
Cant Go Back
Eyes of the World - much better live
Oh Diane
Book of Love

I love all the songs and it was hard ranking them

Gypsy
Hold Me
Only Over You
That's Alright
If You Were My Love (if they kept working on it and cleaned it up more. I would trade Straight Back for a more polished If You Were My Love)

This album's highlights belong to Stevie and Christine, but Book of Love is one of my favorites from any album of theirs.

Thanks for the scoop about Book of Love, FuzzyPlum and SisterNightroad! That even explains why it doesn't 'seem' like a Lindsey song, at least lyrically.
