Over the years, some of Bryan's songs have never had the same recognition as others.Anyone got any favourites or bits in songs that they like but have never been mentioned by the press or by other fans and have just faded away ? I always liked Another Time Another Place,Spin me Round, Still Falls The Rain , Day for Night, Zamba,Chain Reaction,and that keyboard and guitar bit in Avalon just before Fonzi comes in with Dancin,Dancin ! And a few more !

ATAP is great and Chain Reaction is IMHO the best track on Mamouna. For me, Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever is an excellent track from the first album that rarely gets much mention... And I'm a big fan of Party Doll...

I`m carefully omitting more obvious choices, because you asked for BF hidden gems. After all, this ain`t meant to be a “my favourite BFs” thread. To many, this is anorak music, and we`re sharing company with fans of The Cure and R.E.M. The press don`t give a tad about this. Here`s mine:

Song To The Siren
Ja Nun Hons Pris/ A Fool For Love
Nobody Loves Me
I`m In The Mood For Love
Your Painted Smile
Because Your`re Mine
The Right Stuff
You Go To My Head

good thread idea, but hard to know what defines "hidden" since we probably know them all so well :)

but here goes:
ATAP
Because you're mine ( and maybe several other mamouna tracks, most of which i like, and i think they're nearly all hidden, since so few units were sold)
as the world turns
she's leaving home (one of kate bush's favourite BF numbers, btw, alongside RM1)
help me
love war
blinded by the life
funny how time slips away (great vocal)
zamba
39 steps (one of the eno mix versions)

End of The Line. Help Me. That's How Strong My Love Is.

Merde! They're all gems!
