'New Song' - quite apart from being a brilliantly catchy number, it was among one of a clutch of records I bought with my first payslip...memories...!!

I like the lyrics for What is Love best, but the music, lyrics, vocals, arrangement...well, the whole package for Things Can Only Get Better is tops.

I voted for What Is Love as it reminds me of late teenage heartache over a relationship I had at university!

Probably a toss up between Everlasting Love and No One Is To Blame, but I really like the fretless bass part in No One Is To Blame.

Never really liked Howard Jones' music.. kind of a shame, really: we went to the same school, and he played his first few gigs at my local pub.

Your avatar is a funny contrast with Howard Jones!

I like the "Dream Into Action" version of No One is to Blame  better than the pop radio version.

January, I bought a Howard Jones compilation, What Is Love and other hits.  It was very well done.  I have found myself playing What Is Love a lot.  Howard was very ahead of his time with his music.  It doesn't sound like a typical '80s song; it sounds like it could have been recorded today too.  I also like All I Want. My favorite by him is really Like To Get to Know You Well.

I'm a pretty big fan of this guy, but no contest, I had to go with "Everlasting Love".

Not only a good song, but I also loved the video with the two "mummys" (a male and female) walking around on a date. Fits the upbeat new wave feel of the song too.

"No One is to Blame" and "Lift Me Up" (his last semi hit in the early 90's) are pretty high up there too.

No One is to Blame.  It was only of my favorite "teen angst" songs ("You can dip your foot in the pool, but you can't take a swim.  You're the fastest runner, but you're not allowed to win.")
