It's a great song but always felt a bit clunky to me in its execution. The Clash would have done it better.
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

Even at that, Megatop would be tough for me to care about.
I think it has some good songs but I like it more as a whole. In isolation the tracks aren't as good. And it needed quicker fades on the 10 times repeated choruses at the end of a few of the songs.
Been some time since I've listened to it as a whole, so maybe that's on tap.

edit: Okay, just finished listening to it. It still feels more inspired than executed well.
I think the band had a lot more writing credits as Mick was hospitalized during its inception. It does miss his usual melodic gift in places.
I think it's great considering it's time frame and the acid house inspiration.
Agreed, I think it hangs together well, got it on now.

Medicine Show for me, beautiful melody and the flares line is brilliant.

E=MC2 for me, though Medicine Show runs it close. Also love Applecart, V13 and Much Worse.

Lyrically superb. "They traded some for a hostage release" "If you ain't ill it'll fix your car"

Just really poignant yet funny at the same time.

I loved the TV Meltdown show where Mick sings "They traded some for Terry Waite".

Applecart, E=MC2 and V13 are solid. Also worth a mention is Battle of All Saints Road, fucking love that song.

I predict the final is going to be Medicine Show, Sightsee, Applecart, and Contact.

I want Just Play Music to make it far, but I wish the lyrics were better.
Inder:
Absolutely. Here's another collection of words:

Table salt (spoon hinge)
Octopus (Ukraine)
St. Petersburg (arms)
Ginger beer (cauliflower)
Pat Sajak (PSak)
Lamp post (self evident)
Florida Timeshare (ditto)
Heraclitus (EMI)
Developers (Developers Developers)
Boogie With Your Children

Though I've not investigated the lyrics, I love this song so much, got a great joyful vibe to it.
