What is your Manics guilty secret?

Song wise, my guilty Manics secret is I really like Tsunami.

But the thing I feel most guilty about is that I didn’t reallly like meeting them after a gig on the JFPL tour. Talking to Sean for a few minutes when we spotted him hiding was cool, but it was all too intense or too real. I prefer the separation.

What are yours?

I think Kevin Carter is very very overrated and that Your Love Alone is one of their top 5 best singles.

I feel no guilt! Like what you like!

OK, maybe I have a slight tinge of guilt about how much money I've spent on Manics stuff over the years... (maybe not stupid-crazy, but I bought the PFAYM Shoebox, which was probbaly at least 75% of the way towards stupid-crazy in my estimation)... but feeling guilty for liking a Manics song? Never.

I unabashedly love Tsunami, I don't even get why anyone would feel any guilt for liking it unless they were a vocal president of an 'anti-sitar in pop/rock music collective' or something...

Yup. Too old for guilty pleasures. Tsunami is and always was a beast of a single. Lifts any gig up.

Not to derail the thread but these days I think Tsunami towers over every other song from that entire era.

I saw James smoking outside Chiswick High Road house back in 2006 and he saw me looking and I didn't say anything

I like Christmas Ghost.
I like Together Stronger too.
I find Underdogs an adorable move by the band.
And *slowly* I do not feel guilty for ANY of it! Mwhahahahahah
(Not even kidding, don't get all the hate, honestly)

I like the Love of Richard Nixon.
I also like the fact that there are trains in the video for The Everlasting.

When Design For Life is played live, it’s my time to beat the crowds out the door.
