Wonderful Ass was a Number 1

Wonderful Ass was a number 1 hit in an alternative universe.
In that universe, the Parade Album was a bootleg and Under The Cherry Moon was never filmed.

Wonderful Ass was the first single from the album Chocolate Box.

I would love to show you the video but they didn't have YouTube when I visited.

Oh and by the way...?

Croke Park gig was AMAZING!

Not sure... The best version I've heard is on "Box O Chocolates". It's good, but not album fidelity.

It's the best quality version available.

It's funny...I don't get the love for Wonderful Ass at ALL! I'd much rather hear "Big Tall Wall" or "Witness". To me, it seems a little boring.

"Wonderfull Ass" is simply incredible! I love all of the details in the arrangment! I think it is one of his best unreleased songs too! By far one of my favorites; I listen to it ALL THE TIME! smile It's NUMBER 1

It reminds me slightly of 'Wet Dream Cousin' especially with the guitar effects.

Meh...the breakdown is SO lame...a bunch of words with "ate" as the suffix. Yawn! The drum track sounds like a leftover from "Dance Electric", and the synth line is CHEESY! I can think of two dozen outtakes more interesting than "Wonderful Ass"

I love this song! I don't know whether if it would've done well in the charts or not, it's one of those songs where you like it or it annoys the fuck out of you.

I used to think this song was totally lame, but it was actually just that the copy I had was so shitty I couldn't really hear it. Once I got a clean copy I immediately fell in love with it. Not sure if it would have been a number one, but definitely a STRONG track that could have fit in a lot of different albums or even as a B side somewhere.

I really like this song. Get the 'Chocolates' version
