Hmmm...I despise anything from Facebook but admire your analysis and we can argue all day about the most popular choices, the second side of Stranded is certainly the Lads' best.
I'm unhappy that Sultanesque fared so poorly, I love that hypnotic drone and pulse.

Can you do the same for Ferry's catalogue?

Oh grief. I'd rather not to be honest. It was a real labour of love and I don't really have the same passion for Ferry solo material. There's already enough of a divide already between early Roxy and late Roxy - how on earth can people compare tracks from These Foolish Things with tracks from Boys and Girls, or tracks from In Your Mind with Dylanesque?

A long while back though when Musique was a new venture I ran a similar survey asking for three tracks you would expect to hear a Roxy Music tribute perform, and three tracks you would be delighted to hear. Let's Stick Together, Carrickfergus (amazingly) and The "In" Crowd were the only Ferry tracks to receive any votes.

Fair point, it would certainly pose challenges. I recall someone trying to list Ferry's solo albums in order of preference, and he admitted it was difficult to do. Such a diverse body of work, at that point bookended between These Foolish Things and The Jazz Age.
