Albums worth getting for one song (each)

Frank T "frank-t"
 
The Sea Of Love
The Sea Of Love
"Worth getting for "Broken Land" - gloriously gloomy 80s Celt-rock."
Afternoons in Utopia
Afternoons in Utopia
"Worth getting for "Universal Daddy" - the summer Euro-hit that never was."
Quench

"Let's face it, the only song anyone remembers off this album is "Perfect 10", and not without reason."
Blur
Blur
"I'm a sucker for the quirky pop of "On Your Own", but not for anything else here I'm afraid."
The Best of
The Best of
"I know, I know: my soul is damned, but I wanted to hear "I Hear Talk" again before I died."
A Place in the World
A Place in the World
"Worth getting for the wistfully romantic "Naked to the Eye". The rest? Meh."
Demon Days
Demon Days
"Worth getting for "DARE", though it's a song you need to have seen the video for to truly appreciate."
Bigger Than America
Bigger Than America
"The whole album is good, but if each song's fabness was represented by a Manhattan skyscraper, "Dive" would be the Empire State Building."
Walk On
Walk On
"Pretty underwhelming as a whole, but the atmospheric title track is one of Hiatt's best."
The Same Sky
The Same Sky
"Strewth this album is dull, except for the stupendous 80s melodrama of "Sweet Thing"."
The Best Of Jon & Vangelis
The Best Of Jon & Vangelis
"Not all of these songs are terrible, but I wouldn't miss any of them except for "I'll Find my Way Home"."
The Best Of Quincy Jones
The Best Of Quincy Jones
"This is OK, but if you were alive in 1981 you'll be buying this for the supreme uplifting funkiness of "Ai No Corrida"."
Hopes and Fears
Hopes and Fears
"It's pleasant, but I feel only "Bedshaped" might save this album from ultimate oblivion."
Trans-Europe Express
Trans-Europe Express
""Europe Endless" always makes me grin, and well and truly steals the show here."
Lost In Space
Lost In Space
""Humpty Dumpty" is in a different league of tunesmithery from every other song here, none of which I can remember."
Ladies Of The Canyon
Ladies Of The Canyon
""Big Yellow Taxi" may be the only song you know from this album. There's a reason for that."
Easter
Easter
"I'm afraid that this album does nothing for me, except the rock classic "Because the Night"."
Devils & Dust
Devils & Dust
"Not a bad album, but the title track is quite soul-piercing."
Tyger
Tyger
"You might think a Tangerine Dream album with vocals is a bad a idea - and you'd be right. Fortunately they trusted their better judgment on the mellow instrumental "Alchemy of the Soul"."
The Definitive Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons
The Definitive Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons
"If you think the Bee Gees' falsettos are a crime against taste, Frankie Valli will make you scream (and not because you're singing along). However, "December 1963" is sung normally, and is good."
