F ar and away one of the catchiest tracks on Catch Bull At Four is the opening “Sitting,” and yet it’s a difficult song. Perhaps it’s because the subject matter is more serious than its pretty piano melody would suggest, internal taffy in the tortured shape of “Bitterblue” and “Peace Train.” “Crab Dance,” mistakenly credited to the same album, is actually a nonalbum instrumental that prefigures the sweet and salty fare of Penguin Café Orchestra. It’s a fun tune from an otherwise dour period (Catch Bull/Foreigner), and well worth seeking out if you’re interested.
