Re: It Doesn't Often Appear At Christmas

Chart wise, its only really ten years old, which is probably not old enough to properly surface yet. Most of the top 20 look like older songs re-charting. Chris Rea wasn't even a top 40 hit when first released. Now its peaked at 11. The chart is an abomination. A national institution thats been rui...

Re: Videography

The Very era are all brilliant. Favourite though has to be Heart. Pretty much all their vids were spot on. The only two boring ones for me are Love Comes Quickly and Was It Worth It? The latter is a poor song too. Wasnt there some sort of appeal to find all the Its Alright babies? Great topic by the...

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

Isnt it just another Flu? That kills thousands every year. Its never in the news.

Surely a fair few had already contracted it before it became massive news. Those that have had the Flu already this winter could have easily had Corona. How would you know?

Good colour. You want a sprayer to put it on with. It has a nice action.

Re: How could the imperial phase have been prolonged

The Imperial phase really ended after Heart and the release of Domino Dancing. It had to have been I'm Not Scared that was the first single really.

Suppose it depends on what people think an Imperial phase is. If we're being generous, it was the release of Bilingual.

Greed

Saw this advertised on t.v earlier, It's a Sin was played. Not the first time this fine tune has been in a film.

Re: Is there any possibility for a Number 1 album? Look at the list of releases

Its fair to say that PSB's sales reduced significantly after Very. That was their last album that really sold to the masses before they became a fanbase only act. So here are the opening week sales of their albums since Very. Which kinda proves promotion does have an effect... 23,732 Bilingual (#4,...

Re: Is there any possibility for a Number 1 album? Look at the list of releases

Well Fundamental and Yes sold more than Nightlife and Release. Which indicates the fanbase is up and down and also youre right about promotion. Fundamental and Yes had heavy promotion and coverage. Youre also right about Parlophone not dropping PSB. Thats just bollocks. Pity it wasnt number 1 but th...
