All I Want is You" is the A-side, but of course what I'm interested in is the B-side of this single, the instrumental song "Your Application's Failed." The beauty of the 45 rpm single are the b-sides that are not on an album. Mostly they are a mere after-thought if anything else. For whatever reason, Roxy Music usually put out interesting 'throw-a-way' songs on the b-sides, and "Your Application's Failed" is a small classic Roxy Music piece.
It's a song by Roxy drummer Paul Thompson, and a great vehicle in exposing the band's talent and most important, a sense of play is on hand. Most of the songs that end up on a Roxy Music album, or on their A-side singles, it's a very tight structure and there is a sense of seriousness on it all. They're making commercial art. Yet, the b-side songs are sometimes experiments or to see what happens, even if they allow their drummer to compose the song. "Your Application's Failed" is fun. The fact that Roxy Music or Bryan Ferry can show a lighter side of their record making is wonderful. One wishes that there were more pieces like "Your Application's Failed." The classic Roxy is always great, but it's the B-sides that add the flavor or spice to Roxy Music. - Tosh Berman
