1.The Roller 2.Four Letter Word 3.Soon Come Tomorrow 4.Ballroom Figured 5.Flick Of The Finger
That list could change daily with about 15 other songs. While Beady Eye never pulled a classic out of the bag they were excellent at knocking out loads of enjoyable 7-8/10 songs
In fact it's easier to just list the duds: Wind Up Dream, Kill For A Dream, Two Of a Kind, SOTEOTN, For Anyone, Man Of Misery, Girls In Uniform and Shine A light
Every other song is at least 'good' and with Liam's excellent studio vocals damn right addictive and catchy.
Awesome band, I don't care what anyone says. They had at least 2 more albums in them, it's such a shame, they were one memorable classic song and an ill-timed mid life crisis away from being one of the 2010's premier pop/rock bands!
Still the best act I've seen live as well

FTFY. For Anyone is a nice little tune.
I can't get through it without playing There She Goes instead. A bit like how I can't get through the Family Guy Star Wars parodies without needing to watch the real thing I liked it a lot at first but it's definitely a shrinker and it's a bit sickly sweet.
That Show Me Your Love song was in the same vein but much better, they should have worked on that instead.
Honourable mention: Flick Of The Finger (mostly because of the absolutely amazing intro)
The inclusion of Ballroom Figured is not just because of the how good the song is, but how good I know it could've been with better production. With better production I would've put it higher up on the list. I think Dave Sardy did a great job with many of the tracks, but not with this song. It is underproduced, actually a really good song with qualities that you would've noticed better if there was more than just an acoustic guitar and Liams voice. It deserves more. Try to imagine how it could've sounded with strings and everything, a "Don't Go Away-treatment", in lack of better words. Of course there's a tiny chance it could've turned out sounding like The Beat Goes On, but I don't think so. I really feel that it could've been one of the highlights of the album.

Looking back Beady Eye had a lot of great songs, just a shame they never pulled a classic out of the bag to really kick start things. Don't get me wrong they released some terrible songs too but they never got the credit they deserved in my opinion, they just really suffered because it wasn't "Oasis".
