Once again, nickname, the correct word in English is ‘opinion’ rather than ‘fact’.

You're wasting your time, Patrick. He simply won't listen or understand. Utterly insufferable.. :wall: :wall: :wall:

I agree, but does this need its own thread?
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|

It’s a great track but would need re-recording to fit in production style wise. Try inserting it in to the album track list to see what I mean. I’ve tried it and it just sounded wrong

Maybe you could start a petition, or hold a march?

Perhaps this personal opinion (not fact) needs a poll.. :lol:

But I'm sure most of fans and members of this forum think the same. It's a really good track and it'd have matched quite good on the album. Only this song would have made the album better.

Ok, maybe it needs a bit of work but only in order to fit on the album, nothing too much difficult.

To be honest on the first couple of listens I was unsure of Wedding in Berlin so Explored whether Decide or An open mind would be able to replace it. But it didn’t work and actually after a few more listens Wedding clicked and understood why it was included. For people who like the album (and I do think it’s fair to say based on the comments that they are in the majority) a lot would say what makes the album work is how cohesive it is and trying to shoehorn a song in would probably ruin that. Obviously this is just my opinion.

Yeah, love the song, but they didn’t feel it suited the album, and I agree, it doesn’t.

I removed "Wedding In Berlin", changed the running order.

Added "An Open Mind", "The Forgotten Child" and put "Decide" at the end.

Don't give a shit if "it fits", that's the way I'll listen to this album and a few extra tracks.

When we get a B-side sometimes we say its a B-side because it didnt fit soundwise on the main album.. but for my own ears I never really got that. all their B-sides to me sound like PSB on the main albums and (insert name of B-side) here would have fit on any of the main albums.

can anyone tell me the dead can dance would have stuck out on SUPER as odd even if you didnt like the tune? I suspect not. after the fact our imaginations take over and find something weird about said B-side that makes sense it was left off, but I think its all in our heads.

I don’t think “ it’s in our heads” there is a reason tracks are left off certain albums
. Miserablism would NOT have fitted in on Behaviour, it would have stuck out like a sore thumb! !
There are countless of their B-sides wich was left off from albums, because they would have “destroyed”the mood of the albums, and a lot of them are pretty obvious. It’s art after all. It’s not NSync for crying out loud !
