James

So how many James fans do we have here? I absolutely love this band. I think they had an amazing career with a few blunders. I loved Booth and the Bad Angel, but haven't even checked out the latest Booth solo album...

I've got a couple albums -great pop music. I'd recommend the Best of album for those who are just getting into them.

O sit down, o sit down, sit down next to me!

That's actually the only song I know, I think. But they were never big in my country so that's not too strange.

I have a couple of their albums and their Best Of. Excellent band, one of my favorites--good music and great singing by Tim Booth. In the United States, "Laid" is the song people would know if they'd know anything by James.

I've heard a couple of their songs. I like their one called "Sit Down" .

It also doesn't hurt that their band name reminds me of a guy I used to know .

They were excellent. One band that I'm sad I'll never see live.

I like James..! Far from my favorite band out there, but I can usually listen to them and enjoy myself enough. I think that a number of their songs are pretty outstanding. They aren't the greatest, in my mind, but they're a lot of fun. Good music, good times, good sounds.

I do not know this "Sit Down" that everyone is speaking of.
I know "Laid" and I love "Say Something"

Sit Down is a great closer, but their best song (imho) is still Don't Wait That Long.

James is a great band. I just recently discovered them through a friend (Thanks, Tim!) right around the time when Millionaires was coming out. It was a great 3 months of discovering great new songs.

Second favourite band. Really strong 'best of' album released which sold by the bucket load. One of the best front men in the business in Tim Booth and fantastic live. Sadly missed.
