- •Hoover FactoryA taste in the 70s of where he would go in later years.
- •Welcome to the Working WeekFirst song on his first album. This would take 1st place on Elvis Costello songs under 90 seconds.
- •The ImposterMost bass notes in under two minutes award.
- •Talking in the DarkBaroque, Beatles-y oh so British pop.
- •Love for TenderDescending bass lines for those pressed for time.
- •Beaten To the PunchWorth it just for the way he screams the line at the end.
- •Black and White WorldPretty sophisticated ditty given its length
- •Mystery DanceYou know it, you love it.
- •Clean MoneyI believe this was an attempt to do a Cheap Trick style song (it's mentioned in his memoir). Rocks pretty hard.
