Re: Left to my own Devices vs Being Boring

I wrote a whole post and it disappeared. Something to the effect that I had a sudden realization the other day that Devices probably was their best song. It has everything and you don't get tired of it. I was so taken with this thought I was going to post, but you beat me to it. I am still Boring mi...

Re: Guardian 100 Greatest UK No.1's

That's great. Feels good doesn't it? It is an iconic song which has worn very well as that recent version showed. Obviously a subjective list, but objectively it is definitely a top 5 British number one so yeh why not? Oh it is so annoying that they aren't touring now and not doing Glastonbury in a ...

Re: PSB Summer Songs

It's a Sin reminds me of the summer too due to release. Not very summery though I suppose. Anything from Bilingual, Domino, It's Alright, I get Excited, Don Juan, Twenty Something, Always, Paninaro

Re: Guardian 100 Greatest UK No.1's

It did didn't it? Oh well shame-faced, one less then. My point was it is a bit of a wonky compilation. Don't care though, I'm still the biggest sucker for a list.

Re: I don’t wanna

Funny, I was listening to the album this morning and felt compelled to come on here and write a positive review for this song, only to find this thread waiting for me. I love it. A favourite in our house. Sounds like some of their earlier stuff. Ties third after HFAM and BTH with Dreamland. I've ove...

Re: Show your love for “Hoping for a Miracle”

Classic PSB. Beautiful. Perfect vocals, clever lyrics and love the classical riff/ motif. Rivals BTH for the hottest spot. Funny how I thought that BTH was referencing Cameron in the same way as it talks of Blair.

Alexa's favourite band

Apologies for posting in the wrong topic before but I couldn't work out how to create a new topic. Anyway, who has asked Alexa who her favourite band is? Her response is very sweet.

Leaving Invisible Inside a Dream Love is a Bourgeois Construct The Pop Kids Burn Axis/Inner Sanctum The Dictator Decides Brick England Way through the woods Brilliant that this is so hard, they still have it in bucket-loads. I think Axis has the edge over Inner Sanctum but they are both fab intros. ...

Re: Burning the heather

I just read Ghost's response, which sums up everything I think (more eloquently too). The song is about burning the bloody heather, getting rid of the old to make way for the new. So of course it isn't JUST about a man in a pub. It is about aging, time, global warming, society. It is brilliant reall...

Re: Burning the heather

I have, thank you. It is also definitely about a lonely man drinking in a pub. Poems are multi-layered.
