    "Bang Bang" only got to #49 in the UK and apparently didn't chart elsewhere, so it wasn't much of a hit.

    That said, a lot of Squeeze songs didn't do much on the charts - "Goodbye Girl" is on "Singles" and it charted worse!

    I think Glenn and Chris absolutely loathe the song; I can't remember the details but it's discussed in the excellent "Squeeze: Song By Song" book that came out a while ago.

    And that is the very reason I have never bought a BS comp. It is my favourite of his songs and no best of package seems complete without it.

    Further to the OP's point about Pat Benatar's Best Shots, I am pretty certain the UK edition included Sex As A Weapon. It was possibly her biggest hit here.

    This one reached #23 on the American charts. He didn't have that many Top 40 hits.

    Upteen compilations...going back decades, and "Blue Money" is MIA on every single one of them.

    Why the disdain, Van?

    Shaking my head for years now.

    probably mentioned but R.E.M. has 2 releases that cover the warner bros year and neither release has these songs on it in the hit versions.

    -drive-I think this was the highest charting hit from automatic for the people
    -strange currencies-this was the last big hit by them I remember being played to death and the video shown to death
    -bang and blame- isn't this the biggest charting hit from monster?
