Hated most of the album then and still hate most of it today. Only “Save Me” and the title track grab my interest. The rest depresses me.

I liked Christine's two singles, Love Is Dangerous, and Do You Know. The rest of the album didn't do much for me.

Is it one or the other?

I simply cannot stand “Skies”—it offends me. “Do You Know” is pretty, if a bit too glossy.

I was young, and secretly in love with a classmate. I have very emotional memories of DYK.

It is powerful. I would sing so loudly in the car when I was by myself. When It Comes To Love is another goodie. Chris and Billy really sounded good together.

The running order I would have picked:

Skies The Limit
Victim of Love
Freedom
Intuition
Save Me
In the Back of My Mind

Behind the Mask
When the Sun Goes Down
Affairs of the Heart
Do You Know
Love is Dangerous
Game of Love


Also, there were still other better songs by Rick Vito:
Got No Home

Surrender to Me as done here by the Byrds offshoot McGuinn Clark & Hillman.

Was Intuition originally recorded for BTM? I had Rick Vito’s first album after he left FM and loved Intuition. It would have fit beautifully on the BTM.

I also love Game of Love by Billy and can’t believe it didn’t make it on the album. Glad to see someone else likes it, too.

But you left off Do You Know and When It Comes to Love, two of my favorites. I suppose When It Comes to Love is a bit similar to Game of Love, though.

As far as your song order, I would switch Freedom and Love is Dangerous.

There’s a Stevie-less demo of Intuition that’s pretty similar.

Do You Know is there. It’s on side 2. When It Comes to Love never did much for me, but could be due to production. I put Love Is Dangerous on side two because the vibe is a little too close to Victim of Love to be on the same side. Actually, side 2 had a specific flow:

Christine
Billy/Rick
Stevie
Christine/Billy
Stevie/Rick
Billy
