Top Customer Reviews
1) SONG FOR WHOEVER: A nice opening to their greatest hits c.d, the first song the ever released back in 1989. It reached Number 2 in the charts, not bad eh? The song itself seems to be a mockery of mingy little pop-groups, something the South are often misrepresented as.. NO WAY!
2) YOU KEEP IT ALL IN: This has been and probably always will be my favourite tune. Something about it gets your feet tapping.. enough said! Again, released in 1989, this reached Number 8.
3) I'LL SAIL THIS SHIP ALONE: Reached Number 31 in 1989, but should have gotten higher. Maybe Heaton's lyrics are "too" subtle?!
4) A LITTLE TIME: A popular South song. The South's first Number 1, in 1990. And I can see/hear why!
5) MY BOOK: At Number 43 this was something of a let down.. but don't let that put you off the song! Its a fabulous deep and theological autobiography by Paul.
6) LET LOVE SPEAK UP ITSELF: One of the best in terms of lyrics. My favourite for a very long time!! Got to Number 51 in 1991, under-rated by far!
7) OLD RED EYES IS BACK: One of many South songs to come about alcoholics, and we wonder why? Very clever song. Reached Number 22 in 1992.
8) WE ARE EACH OTHER: Another clever song about a couple being so close to each other, they are each other! Brilliant! And a catchy tune too. Reached Number 30 in 1992.
9) BELL BOTTOMED TEAR: Reached Number 16 in 1992. This song gives a perfect melody of female and male vocals. Its superb!
10) 36D: Well what can I say? A song about prostitution and all round "shallowness." This is a catchysong that deseved higher than 46 in 1992.
11) GOOD AS GOLD (stupid as mud): After a year off, this reached Number 23 in 1994.Read more ›

I have never heard some of these songs before but was addicted to them as soon as I heard them.
The problem with some of the 'souths' songs is that the words are not clear and that's where the CD's book comes in handy. Did I really hear the words "the camera man slipped, they later found him scolding a banana"?
Wacky lyrics to some songs. Excellent! But it now!
The normal process with this band (and I didn't realise it happened to others until it had happened to me) is that you hear this album, and within two months you have bought every single other album they have done (I recommend "Quench" and "Miaow" by the way). This is the one to get first, though, and you shouldn't hesitate to buy it if you're not sure. You'll hate yourself if you do.
Oh, one last thing: the penultimate track on this CD, Prettiest Eyes, is the most beautifully perfect piece of music ever performed ever. Fact.Read more ›
