Y'see, this is why i hate doing lists like this because once you start getting into the weeds of all the stuff they've put out you realise you can't include everything because there are so many gems.
I bring this up because familiarising myself with both those remixes of hold me like a heaven mentioned by flint and porco now means they need honorary mentions. Both great, especially the warm digits remix.
The new version of spectators of suicide... no, no, the line must be drawn here!

I did completely realise I left out the TUVL Japanese bonus tracks off my list, I blame the fact that they’re so recent I’ve yet to become accustomed to them. Would likely include them though - especially My Drowned World.

This thread makes me realise what a bad fan I've been this past decade (in my defence, I really didn't like PFAYM or RTF). I don't know any of these songs apart from Together Stronger (eek). Time to get catching up...

Likewise, I just totally switched off to the band after PFAYM. I tired to entertain RTF, but relistening now I realise that for me, it just wasn't that good either. However it seems from there things definitely improved, and the b-sides remained, as ever, mixed-to-solid.

Sorry, I couldn’t do a list. I got as far as

1. Rock n Roll Genius

and everything else just felt so unworthy after that.

The Last Time I Saw Paris, T.E. Lawrence on a Bike and Red Rubber can have honourable mentions.

I attempted this but couldn't limit it to 10. Sorry not sorry.
Also in no particular order:

Broken up again
Kiss my eyes for eternity
I'm leaving you for solitude
I know the numbers
Empty motorcade
T.e. lawrence on a bike
Concrete fields
What happened to the blue generation
Time ain't nothing
Blistered mirrors
Holding patterns
Red rubber
I love "T. E. Lawrence On A Bike" so much! What a great b-side!

When you get to Caldey, should it have been reworked into a Eurovision Duet or what?!

See It Like Sutherland
Caldey
Kodawari
Blistered Mirrors
Empty Motorcade
The Last Time I Saw Paris
These Dark Roads
