The synth would have turned me off in the late 70s, but I liked it today.

I've always been a fan of this from the Subhumans.

I always felt bad that the only song I knew from the Stranglers was their poppiest, Nice in Nice.

I can't listen to any Stranglers tune without thinking of this:

If we're going back that far, we should touch base with something better, like I Feel Love.

/that album was my childhood soundtrack.

Wow...how did I miss that? I'm old enough to remember it, but completely missed it the first time around. I didn't realize this was the cover.

/good cover, tho

That's a good one!

...I don't know why but I feel like sharing this:

I guess its because I recently can't get it out of my head, unlike subby's song.

and this one too ...been having these songs in my head for days:

No accounting for taste I guess :P

Weirdly, the synth makes this sound NOT sleazy.

If you're going for punk basslines, "Magnificent Seven" works:

The bass riff was catchy, but everything else was pretty bad.

Great movie, great song to kick it off.

An acquaintance in high school got Black and White in 1978.  He hated it.  Told me, "Take if if you want it."  Been a fan ever since, though I don't exactly listen to it on a daily basis now.  I turned a friend onto it, who told me, "Nice N Sleazy has the single most f*cked up solo in musical history."  I think he's right.

The only Stranglers song I knew before this link

Golden Brown

It was a part of some eclectic singles collection I had on cassette back in the day.
