What are you guys least favorite Camel songs. Songs I hate from Camel include Remote Romance, Your Love is Stranger than Mine, and also You Are the One. Neon Magic sucks too, but I like when the Rhayader theme plays at the end of it.

I don't hate any music at all, simply don't listen to it if music don't fit my tastes. Buty as a great fan of Camel must say that like the whole material by them and adore most of it, but... definitely can't stand the only one track. Remote Romance must be terrible mistake made by Camel in the moment of complete... madness?

Remote Romance is a Camel song I don't remotely love, but I really DO like Your Love is Stranger than Mine, You Are the One & Neon Magic. Smile

Your Love is Stranger than Mine isn't a bad song but for Camel standards, it's IMHO sub par.

Can't say that I hate any of their songs. There are some that don't spend any time on the turntable, but it's more a matter of preference.

There's quite some space below it. Tongue

@Topic: I'm not keen on those listed in the first posting, but generally when I don't like something much, I tend to skip it or not pay attention, which leaves me with a very limited competence regarding what's the worst of pretty much anything.

Sasquatch is often considered to be one of the and THE best track from The Single Factor, but it is not generally a highly regarded album (lowest rated).

By the way, some of the worst songs by a band I will love despite and maybe because of the badness (songs of the so bad they are good variety).  Heck, the Shagg's Philosophy of the World is genuinely one of my favourite albums.  A film I love The Room for its ineptitude.  I can't think of anything I "hate" (to use OP terminology) from Camel (music does not tend to elicit such an emotional reaction from me) but there is plenty of stuff I do find bland and insipid and is just not to my tastes.  I might still quite like those at different times.

Looking at this topic, Ranking Every Single Camel Song which I know the OP responded to, that worst song, "Remote Romance" I actually like (that's a good bad for me). It tickles a certain bone, probably my funny one in a way.

Camel is not a band that I am so into to easily have a worst.  But even with my favourite bands, those worst I find certain absurdist pleasure in -- a rather masochistic or perverse pleasure some might say.

"It's automatic
There's too much static
Ooh your signal's fading
Down goes my rating
Ooh your signal's fading"
-"Camel"

Yeah the song is talking to itself. It's signal is fading as well. EDIT: Woohoo, I am a groupie!

I saw that you said that Your Love is Stranger Than Mine was your favorite track off that album. http://www.progarchives.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=123871

Iím a fan of the song btw. I grew up on late 70s/early 80s Camel.

It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle if it is lightly greased.

Honestly, the only Camel that really doesnít satisfy me is the Harbour of Tears album. Probably just needs more time, but something about it just doesnít speak to me. I have no Irish in me so maybe thatís part of it.

There's not a single Camel song I actually hate, but there are a couple I don't really like: Neon Magic and Remote Romance.
I've also realised recently that The Single Factor is much better than I used to think.
A TVR is not a car. It's a way of life.

You know, it actually reminds me a bit of Steve Hillage from around that same time period. The only thing that's missing is Steve's guitar. Tongue
