The Michigan Da
Thomas Crowley's Best of:
1. Teenage Fanclub -"Thirteen"
The Fannies know that without a de-
cent melody, you can't have a decent
song. The Glaswegian quartet also
knows that without a collection of
decent songs, you can't have a decent
album. Their follow-up to "Band-
wagonesque" is full of exceedingly
catchy songs, written and sung excep-
tionally by all four members of a band
that proves once and for all that pop
is not dead.
2. Kirsty MacCol -"Titanic Days"
A fantastic album.
Suede -"Stay Together" American
critics who dismissed Suede as a
flash-in-the-pan should tie on their
bibs and prepare to eat their words.
The first single from their follow-up
to what was easily the best album of
1993 - their self-titled debut -
packs the same kind of power as "Ani-
mal Nitrate" and "The Drowners," but

Campus Tradition: Naked Mile
Hey, it's healthy (assuming spring
arrives in time), and it's one of the
best spectator sports. But beware of
flying body parts.
Is Hash Bash a cause, or just an ex-
cuse for 10,000 people to get stoned
and trash the Diag?
Activist Group: NORML
This is the "Apathetic '90s." Are
there any other activist groups left?
Take Back the Night
Though "Donna Martin graduates"
got quite a few votes, it seems that
"Take Back the Night" is more wor-
thy. (Is it coincidence that our friends
the West Beverly alumni participated
in a Take Back the Night march?)
Shirley McFee (R-Battle Creek)
Deep down, she reminds all of us of

Sort of a nice hurrah for our outgo-
