This is my first post! How exciting...

I didn't even have to think about it. "Message Boy" from the Luton Tapes. In fact, every time I hear it still sounds like the first time.

Wow.

Great call! Luton was my most anticipated album ever! I read about the tapes in Mike Chunn’s Stranger Than Fiction book in 93 and had to wait about 15 years to finally hear them - So much expectation, so much hope and it exceeded it incredibly!

The song I would choose though is “Semi-Detached”. I heard it for the first time when it was put on the “Spellbound” Best of. It just blew me away... How could an Enz song THAT good fly under the radar for so long...

I suppose this question refers to songs which really struck you on the first listen, kind of the opposite of a 'grower'. It's pretty rare for me to love a song the first time around, but here are three:
Wherever You Are - Has Neil's voice ever sounded better?
She Goes On - Nearly melted when I first heard the chorus
Sacred Cow - Groovy but moody atmosphere, immediate earworm

Likewise w/ I Feel Possessed. TOLM  was one of the first CDs I bought in 1988.  Blown away when first  heard this song and great lead in to rest of album.  Remains my favorite CH album and in my all time top 10.  In a more perfect world CH would’ve reunited in 2018 for 30th anniversary TOLM tour (which would’ve much preferred to FM tour)...
