I’m trying to think of a funny response but I’m just not the king of comedy.

Well... Together Stronger has a better guitar riff.
Ghosts of Christmas has the better chorus.
But Together Stronger is more forward looking as opposed to "Eeh, it's all computers these days".
So Together Stronger surprisingly the winner. But others might disagree.

Ghost of Christmas I think. Both are clunky af, but for a band who's sound is basically MOTD background music half the time, that's the best football song they could come up with?!

The odd thing about Together Stronger is tha the team rundown bit always sounded cheesy as hell until after that Belgium game. Suddenly that was a fairly complete list of the best Welsh team ever and celebrating Robson Kanu didn't sound quite so silly.

I like both but would go for Together Stronger just because this version still gives me goosebumps

I like Ghost of Christmas, it works reasonably well as a homage to '70s glam rock Christmas songs and has a fun chorus.
Together Stronger is really quite nauseating.

If they did a reissue of Lifeblood, and it’s second disk encompassed tracks from There By The Grace of God to God Save The Manics, it'd be the one I’d be most tempted to purchase.

That's a good point. I must admit, I was mostly just thrilled it had Tom Bradshaw in the video, as he was at the Saddlers at the time

Specific part of From Despair to Where sounds a bit like A Kind of Magic by Queen.
