OK, Try These....

Not live, for obvious reasons, but some nifty videos off Skylarking.

"Respectable Street"

and

"Grass"

I always thought "Season Cycle" would make a great video, though my favorite song off Skylarking is "Another Satellite."

(Many thanks to Phila, who linked something else here on a late-night thread on which I was lurking.)

I've always thought XTC, Andy the most I guess, chose singles poorly. He thought "Wait Till Your Boat Goes Down" would chart highly. "Grass" isn't a great song. "The Meeting Place" and "That's Really Super, Supergirl" are a gazillion times better.

Isn't there a "live video" of XTX doing Respectable Street in "URGH! A Music War"?

"Another Satellite" is a very wonderful song. FWIW, my own favorite is probably "Earn Enough For Us," a song that delivers on all the light and darkness I crave in powerpop.

Thanks for the links!
