I'm not sure that's the case. I'm not a huge fan of Mystified and I love Carnival Begins. There's good aspects about the track- the guitar playing around the middle and end is super relaxing and Christine's singing on the verse with "The light that shines around you, it blinds my eyes" line is beautiful. The song is harder for me to get into though because the lyrics are kind of trite at the beginning and the music is just absolutely SACCHARINE, which is sort of a turn-off for me personally. There's zero edge. I get that it's the intention of the song to have that vibe but it's not to my taste unfortunately. That said, it has its place on the album and absolutely contributes to that twinkly, ethereal feeling the whole thing has.

Ricky
You and I part 1 and 2
Special Kind of Love
Where We belong
Down Endless Street

SO GOOD.
I would have added the following to the songs I mentioned and you would have a great album. No Stevie needed here.
Big Love
Everywhere
Little Lies
Mystified (I know people don't like it, but I love it)
Isn't It Midnight
Tango in the Night
Sign me up with Ricky, too! I would have worn this cassette out on my prized Walkman (as my 7 year old self did with the real album). Skipped Stevie's two duds on Side 2 most of the time... so "yes, please" to the above track listing (and I personally love Caroline so I'll keep it, too, please and Family Man too while we're at it, haha)

I also love Caroline. I'm glad there's at least two of us out there

I agree. This song should have been included on the Tango box set.

Haha! Man I love it SO MUCH.

Glad I'm not alone!

Also: I'm surprised I'm the only one to vote for Where We Belong. I hear those keys and Lindsey's voice and it's so so so good... chills!

Another vote for "Ricky" here!

"You & I Pt. 1-2" is a close second though.

What I would have liked in the Deluxe version is the version of You and I Part II where Christine takes the lead vocals. This is the best version, by far, imo.

Yes, that would have been nice to have included that also on the set.
