I kinda wanna imagine the band before Mick left playing ''Three Card Trick'' and can only envisage it being totally awesome. So I'm kicking out ''I'm So Bored with the U.S.A.'' simply because I wasn't bored with the U.S.A. and the song lyrically to me is dumb.
The first verse is pretty solid and a bit of a precursor to Washington Bullets, but the rest is weak.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

There's only one vote here, as much as I like 3CT.
Yeah the crossover of albums is the real leveller.

I'm glad Call Up is gone. Listened to it again this morning and not only is the chord progression unchanging, but the verse vocal melody is basically the same as the chorus melody. God damn that song is boring.

A handful of IMCT contrarians voted for other songs, however. Personally - I don't care how "good" TCT might be - I refuse to place it above any of the Mick-era tracks remaining in the poll.

So I'm a ''contrarian'' am I. I'll have you know I'll argue against that. ;)
