Favorite Wire song? Album?

  • Album: Pink Flag or Chairs Missing. I'm leaning more towards Pink flag but because they are such different albums its hard to choose one over the other.

    Songs: Ex-lion Tamer, Outdoor Miner, Dot Dash, Field Day for the Sundays, Marooned...

    For a long time the only Wire I'd listened to was Pink Flag and 154...Now after raiding my mom's collection I'm well stocked and getting into their other albums.

    So, tough choice, for the moment Album: 154, Chairs missing

    songs: marooned (one of the most haunting songs I've ever heard), no warning given, map ref, I am the fly, the 15th, mannequin and three girl rhumba

    I like the fact that when you put in
    a Wire album there is no need to skip a track.
    It feels like every song could be a single.

    Read and Burn 03 is fantastic. 23 yrs too late, No Warning Given, Desert Driving. So great...! Especially the last 2 songs can compete with ANY 154 song....!!

    How many compliments can you get...! How many...how many....HOW MANY.....!? ;-)

  • Song: Our Swimmer (single version, not live recording)

  • it's hard to choose because i find myself going through enjoyment phases with every wire album i own.
    I recently added 154 to my top ten albums because i think it is perfect as far as an album goes, but if i just consider wire on their own as an artist i'd have to say that chairs missing constantly surprises me with its subtlety and depth and quality.

    I'm actually yet to hear read and burn... and i'm also really excited about object 47!!!

    bit slow on the new material uptake it seems!

    Been a fan eversince 1978! Chairs Missing and 154 were for me at that time musical revolutions/revelations and have always been a major influence on my musical development. Wire is a great band. They have given rockmusic so much more.

    i also passionately hate whoever remixes/remixed or will remix wire, particularly ladytron and the monstrosity they did with the 15th...

    Really? Ladytron included the original "The 15th" on their mix compilation Softcore Jukebox, NOT a remix. I never heard of Ladytron remix of a Wire song.

    Do your homework first...
