Singles & Remixes / Re: What is your Favorite Non Single Song?

My favorite non single song is "Once in a Lifetime".    For me, it's the one ballad that is sung flawlessly by the girls and the lyrics could be the storybook for anyone's life and personal relationships.   I think it's their absolute best ballad and would have preferred it being released as a single instead of "I Want You Back".

My favorite album is definitely "WOW!".  It's hard to describe why.  Each Bananarama album has parts of it that are very special and unique and for which I can personally identify certain songs with my own life but with "WOW!" it just seemed to be at a much higher level and was really smooth & appealing across the board.   It fit perfectly with that period of time.   Each song on the actual album as well as the b-sides hold a special meaning and still hold up perfectly 30 years later.   I just think the album as a whole was what was missing from the first 3!

This is almost impossible for me to answer but if I must pick just one it has to be "Cruel Summer".   They filmed the video for it here in New York City and it was a very special feeling seeing them film it in areas I had also passed through. It was the very first song I heard by the girls that just drew me in immediately.   When I then saw them perform it and "Robert Deniro's Waiting" on American Bandstand I knew I was hooked and it was going to be a never ending fan devotion to them.  I also think it's the only song that is widely identified with the summer time season all of these years later!
