What is your worst Manics song ever?

SONG: Everything Will Be

Admittedly, I loved the first ever airing of this song at one of the festivals, it was fresh, exciting, a departure for the band musically but then they decided to botch it up completely as a recorded b-side. I can defend the lyrics although they are trite but the production on this song is terrible, all weird synths, blurps and bleeps. Terrible.

I LOVE Horses Under Starlight. It's just got that campy gayness about it that makes it impossible to switch off.

The Underdogs isn't a terrible song though it is just depressingly average.

Another one for Happy Ending. I also find Black Holes For The Young hugely embarassing.

I like Happy Ending but you're so right about BHFTY. Jesus Christ, it was awful.

Hmmm, I think it would be a pick between:

Yourself
You're Tender And You're Tired
Litany
Emily
