Oh, and Happy Family....I don't really get into Crimson until the Lizard album.
I like to feel the suspense when you're certain you know I am there.....

Keith Tippett!  If you dig KT, I recommend his then future wife Julie Driscoll's 1969 album....or any of the stuff she was doing with Brian Auger.
 
Oh, and Centipede!  Tippett really has/had a groovy avant style....highly listenable yet highly expirimental.

I like both equally but I vote Cat food because I love Lake's voice even though this is not the song his vocal style fits in.

^ With Keith Tippet's piano and all?
Now, the live version withoug Tippet's piano and louder bass and drums does sound more like a typical rock song.

Happy Family is one of my favorite KC songs.  Cat Food, while good, is probably the closest KC has ever sounded to you're typical rock group.

I like all of Lizard including Happy Family, so that gets my vote.

Strange; I absolutely LOVE the lyrics of "Cat Food".

It's not THAT strange. People have different opinions.

"Cat Food" is of course a song about human food, or more specifically about instant meals. So both "cat food" and "not even firt for a horse" are derogatory expressions for it.

One hand clap.  Four went out but none came back.

I can understand your anger at me, but what did the horse I rode in on ever do to you?

I just listened to both songs again. I had completely forgotten how very danceable "Happy Family" is. It will definitely run on our next party.
