The Beast Must Die accidentally left this comment on The Police write-up, but I'll respond to it here:

"Dude. 'Big Country' is so far from being the best song on 'More songs..' Try 'Stay Hungry' or 'Warning sign'."

I mean, I honestly think that you could make an argument for most of the songs on Buildings and Food. After "Big Country," I jump to "Thank You For Sending Me an Angel" or "I'm Not In Love." But there's something about "Big Country" that strikes me in a completely different way as everything else--it manages to be wistful and ironic, which is one of the directions that David Byrne headed in that made me bond with him as a songwriter when I was a kid. I might feel differently a year from now.
