:/
I'm not happy with the choices. Of course I would love it if Van Diemen's Land was a full song, backed up by the rest of the band, but it would go nowhere as a single.
::bites lip::

Oh alright, God Part II.

Oh man, between Hawkmoon 269 (which I adore) and Love Rescue Me (which I also adore), it's a tough call.

What? No "Freedom For My People"?

Fine. I went with "Love Rescue Me."

"When the night has no end
And the day yet to begin
As the room spins around
I need your love..."

I think Hawkmoon 269 would make a beautiful single...

You wouldn't be lowelling if you heard it.
You'd be groaning and praying for Sting to walk in so he could lash out at it and put a stop to his smarmyfication.

Hi, I'm new here. Been lurking for a while.

Had to go with Hawkmoon 269, personally. But I think Love Rescue Me would've sold better as a single.

Question - why is the song called Hawkmoon 269?

Hi! Glad you decided to de-lurk! :)
http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=922 should help explain some.

I actually heard God Part II on the radio one time. It was shocking and awesome at the same time.

Even though I absolutely adore 'Love Rescue Me' I have to go with Hawkmoon 269.

God Part II because it just seems more radio friendly than Hawkmoon. Plus, two songs over six minutes from the same album is too much for my liking - we'd end up with a horribly cut version on TV.

Wasn't "God Part II" a single? I own it.

I'd go with "Silver and Gold" if not for the spoken lines in the middle.

I Loooooooooooooooooooove the studio version though.
