Maybe I'm just awkward, but I like most of those.

I think I'm going with Ocean Spray.

was between Ocean Spray and Empty Souls, went with Empty Souls. oddly, both the original and the "self censored" edited lyrics work; it's just the fuss they made themselves around it that irks me. it's a damned good song.

La Tristesse Durera of course! Not only is it a great single, it's one of their best singles/songs ever + THE GUITAR SOLO.

Wow, when you look at all of the 2nd singles in a list, it's a strange one eh? It seems many of their 3rd and 4th singles were far superior.

I think my second choice would've been The Everlasting, a song I've rather come back to recently.

Another big GATS fan here. I seem to like everything the band don't. I like to think of it as nurturing an unloved child.
