What? *sigh* (Should I be muttering "Oldtimers!"???)

I can't think of anything on Scandal that can even COMPARE to any of the three best tracks on Waiting (almost universally, I think, considered to be Whaddya, Sweetwater, and Ghosts). If you'd said Sex & Travel, I might think "hm, yeah, Big Saturday...".

Cult is pretty good. She's On Drugs, Pineapple Tuesday, the second version of Girl Go, Sister Death... mmm. I *like* it!

If you all you want a laugh, then maybe Scandal is better. (Ooh, flamebait! :) I just think that Pat can do more than write novelty/humorous music.
