Re: (It's not) the end of the world!

So I wasn't the only one who played "The end of the world" today. :lol:

It has been a while since I listened to it. I was surprised how well it had aged.
It still sounds fresh today. :up:

Re: PSB A-Z

Impressive list. Do you have the list in a database or Excel format ?

Did you add the time of each song ?
I've always wondered how long it would take if you listened to all of their songs in one go.

Re: Leaving - Second Single in October.

Before? I hate that song but adore Leaving... I can't find any similarities between them. laid back tempo, hooky female backing vocals, swooshy keyboards, call and response singing, lyrics relating to the idea about moving on in the hope of finding real love, mention of past relationships and, weak...

Re: Single most ecstatic moment in PSB catalogue

Just heard another one :

The Theatre : "In the end, you pretend b'cause it's so much easier"

Will tears at last precede the turn
From summer warmth to sudden cold
As certainly as growing old?
