Question Which songs do we think Nicky wrote? (music wise)

I'll go with

Liverpool Revisited (sounds like his style of chord changes/melody)
The Left Behind (he's singing it, which usually means he wrote it)

Any others?

Wouldn't be surprised if that's it really, given the way he was talking before the album announcement, personal problems, how uncharacteristically quiet he's been on current affairs and how Walk Me To The Bridge was about him wanting to leave the band, I'd be surprised if more than a couple of tracks are his. Course when we listen to the demos we'll know for sure if there are any others.

Quite interested in whether there's any more lyrical input from James, or even Sean. Course James isn't a lyricist but of the stuff we know he's done, there's nowt that jumps out as significantly worse than Wire's lyrics to me.

We'll find out for sure when the demos come out (Nicky singing = Nicky authored) so now is the only time to guess...

“Nicky wrote the song in its entirety” https://www.facebook.com/manicstreet...5565954541089/

I’m taking that as confirmation - bloody knew it
