Hi there - long time forum lurker, first time poster!
Probably like many, I've often thought that We Can't Dance is far too long for it's own good, and a very decent album is lurking somwhere underneath the surface with a few tracklist alterations.
This is my suggested tracklist, which on my Spotify playlist flows much better to my ears. I've broken it up into two sides as that's how I always knew the album.
No Son Of Mine
Jesus He Knows Me
Hearts On Fire
I Can't Dance
Driving The Last Spike
On The Shoreline
Dreaming While You Sleep
Whilst the rest of the alterations were pretty easy for me, there were a couple I pondered on. Firstly, I Can't Dance is not a fave of mine at all, but it is a pretty popular and unique Genesis song in the wider world and also gives a little bit of light in what is otherwise a pretty heavy album. Also, until recently I'd always thought of Hearts On Fire as nice enough but nothing special and sounding a bit unfinished anyhow. Then I listened to the Nick Davis remix for the first time in years a few months back and it sounded much stronger than I remembered. Definitely stronger to my ears than any of the ditched tracks.
What are your thoughts on WCD?
