The Stranglers Non-Album Singles And B-Sides Part III (1980-1982)

1979

1977-1978

1) Who Wants The World single (1980) 5/5


I don't understand why the Studio version was never returned as a Bonus Track in the Remastered versions of The Stranglers albums...too bad. You can find a Live Version of the song in their Live album All Live And All Of The Night.

2) Tomorrow Was The Hereafter Demo (1980) 3.5/5


This was an old demo from 1975 actually, that's why it sticks out musically. A little bit better than the two previous Bonus Tracks though.

3) Top Secret B-Side of the single Thrown Away (1981) 3/5


I like the theme of the song, as a big fan of occultism...but musically isn't anything special.

4) Maninwhite B-Side of the single Just Like Nothing On Earth (1981) 3/5


Same case as above.

5) Vietnamerica B-Side of the single Let Me Introduce You To The Family (1981) 2.5/5


Eh...just a meaningless B-Side

6) Love 30 B-Side Of The Single Golden Brown (1981) 3.5/5


Personally I prefer it more than the A-Side. Obviously it couldn't be the A-Side, because it's too antimainstream.

7) Cocktail Nubiles outtake (1981) 4/5


I don't know when it was recorded exactly, but guess it was about during the La Folie sessions. A funny version of the song Bring On The Nubiles from their album No More Heroes, sung in a Baroque Pop style.

8. You Hold The Key To My Love In Your Hands Demo (1981) 3/5


It's just OK, but no worse than some songs that made it in their La Folie album.

9) Strange Little Girl Single (1982) 4.5/5


This is one of their earliest songs, but the first time they released a studio version of it, was in 1982. A great melodic song, but I wish it was longer.

10) Cruel Garden B-Side of the single Strange Little Girl (1982) 3/5


Just OK. Nothing more.

Overall 3.5/5

Sure they had their ups and downs in this period, but one thing is certain. It was their most commercially successful period, thanks to their single Golden Brown.
