Okay, now I'm with ya. It's okay that people like "Family Man" (I guess ), but I still have to ask them why on earth they like it.

Whoops, that wasn't about Christine.

Family Man would've been okay if he'd just gotten rid of the "amwhatIam's". The guitar solo is really nice.
Ooops, looks like I'm guilty now, too!

Okay, to make up for the talk of SnL, can y'all tell me why some people don't like "I Do" I mean, what the hell is wrong with people who don't like that song?

Oh, okay...Obviously I didn't read the rules at the start. So, I'll modify my answer.

ALL OF THEM
Accept for Love Will Show Us How, which was great, but not my favorite from the 1984 album. That would have done well for a #2 single.

Just looking through some old threads:

In the UK singles charts I think Everywhere is the Christine song that should have reached number 1. It is the band's most successful single in the UK (Number 4) since the reissued Albatross reached number 2 in 1973. Everywhere is probably their most played hit on radio (It's typically played daily on commercial stations) and it always seems to feature on 'Love album' compilations and 80's compilations.

Out of interest I looked back at the chart for 23rd April 1988;
1) Heart: Pet Shop Boys
2) Love Changes (Everything): Climie Fisher
3) Theme from S-Express: S-Express
4) Everywhere: Fleetwood Mac

Of those, Everywhere is by far the most enduring song. I am reminded of what a really great singles band the Pet Shop Boys were/are- though I'm not sure this is one of their better songs- quite a surprise Number 1. S-Express is typical late 80's dance dirge.

Everywhere really should have been number one that particular week.

Ironically most of her singles were hits!

Love Shines should have been a big hit in the US.
