Resequencing Hot Space

You can't polish a turd......

Side 1
Calling All Girls
Life Is Real
Staying Power
Under Pressure
Dancer

Side 2
Put Out The Fire
Las Palabras De Amor
Back Chat
Action This Day
Body Language
Cool Cat
Each morning I get up and die a little....
Our lives dictated by tradition, superstition, false religion
I feel like no one ever told the truth to me.
About growing up and what a struggle it would be....

It's not a turd, It's a misunderstood nugget of joy! :p

Nice sequencing though, I'll give ya that.

But I'd go for something a little different. I think the original sequencing hurt the album somewhat.

Side 1)

Under Pressure
Put Out The Fire
Life Is Real
Calling All Girls
Las Parablas de Amor

Side 2)

Action This Day
Staying Power
Dancer
Back Chat
Body Language
Cool Cat

That way we have 2 very distinct sides instead of the album being in an order that didn't gel.

You CAN polish a turd.

It involves the use of liquid nitrogen, but it IS possible.

I've said before on here that I think the tracklisting was a major part of the album's failure. Putting four 'dance' songs in a row on Side A was a huge mistake. I reckon a lot of fans got as far as 'Body Language' then took the album off, never to be played again.
