Listening To Please And Actually Without Singles

Thought I’d give myself a different listening experience by removing the singles from both albums, replacing them with their b sides

Worked quite well
You could shoehorn “Do I Have To?” onto Actually somewhere

Please..

Two Divided By Zero
A Man Could Get Arrested
In The Night
That’s My Impression
Jack The Lad
Paninaro
Was That What It Was
Tonight Is Forever
Violence
I Want A Lover
Later Tonight
Why Don’t We Live Together?

Actually...

One More Chance
A New Life
Shopping
I Want A Dog
Hit Music
It Couldn’t Happen Here
You know Where You Went Wrong
I Want To Wake Up
I Get Excited
(Do I Have To?)
Kings Cross

Over on Spotify I’ve done a PSB playlist called “also”. It’s two to three tracks from each album that weren’t singles. It’s head and shoulders above a lot of other artists “best of”.

I did a similar thing back when the PopArtMix box came out. I made myself a 4th disc entitled Fan.

Retro. :)

I did try it with future albums and it only really works with Please and Actually.

We all feel better
This must be
Bet she's not
To face the truth
Only the wind
October S
It must be obvious
Nervously
End of t W
Losing my Mind

Nah.... It won't work with Losing my mind but with Miserablism the non-single Behaviour would be ace

Fundamental is a favourite of mine so thought I'd try.

It's less clear, as we've entered the age of the "preview" singles that are stand-alone. And there's also contamination with side projects.

But it's pleasing how well the feel and theme of the era stays together.

Psychological
The Sodom and Gomorrah Show
I Made My Excuses and Left
No Time For Tears
Girls Don't Cry
God Willing
Luna Park
The Resurrectionist
Casanova in Hell
Twentieth Century
Indefinite Leave to Remain
Fugitive

Boy, to open with "We all feel better" back then would of been so bold.

Pity they didn't have it up their sleeves to open Super, that would of impressed the tour kiddies.

(totally different vibe to Happiness of course, but similar intensity)

I know Shameless is a great song and all, but twice on the album?
