Re: The lost single

my favorite live version of west end girls has to be the release tour where they did a kinda spacey version of it with guitar. That's exactly one of the reasons why they should've released it as single along with a full live album, a proper 2002 concert album (one disc only), not just some recordin...

Re: The lost single

West End Girls is also a lost single. Somewhere along the line, probably perhaps around the release of PopArt West End girls shoul've been rereleased with a live version as the A-side and a demo och different take as b-side along with another couple of live tracks from the tour of -02 (they should'v...

Re: Dreamland / No Boundaries CD single - October

"Dreamland" got the score of 6,369 on Geowayne's rating project. Only five PSB-singles have scored lower: "Numb", "Before", "Beautiful people", "Together" and "Winner". 'Before' is a veritable masterpiece by comparison to the other songs on this list. If one cannot appreciate Before and Together as...

Re: The lost single

In Private should have been released as a PSB 7'' with Dusty on vocals and Neil on more prominent backing vocals or perhaps some spoken word bit in the song. Released in late november '89 it would've been a perfect fit in the gap between Introspective and Behaviour. Chris should've been involved in ...

Re: B-Sides since 2009's "Format"

Forget it, this list will never be conclusive in a correct way no matter how you go about it. I thought the 80's was messy with non-albums singles but it's nothing compared to the chaos of the last years.

Re: The lost single

In The Night would have easily been top 10, purely because the Clothes Show was massive. Wow, that's right. But they only started using it as theme song in 1987 (was it early '87 or late '87?). Could PSB have fitted in both King's Cross and In the Night as singles during that time? I guess so. Let'...

Re: The lost single

There is only one really true lost single: King's Cross and we all know why...

Didn't Chris acknowledge that Why don't we was 'ace' and should've been a single. They should've released it in 1985 and put it's 12'' mix on Disco.

Re: 21st Century Boys

What was your handle on Dot, Telys? The point about albums reminding you of a certain place and time is an interesting one. Most of my listening involves the selection of individual tracks from all eras, so I don’t really associate, say, Can you forgive her? with June 1993 or even Very. The track c...

The two albums of Super

It just struck med that Super is actually two types of album. Two different types of songs. First the good old fashioned PSB pop tracks with a story and proper production: The Pop Kids 20 something Sad Robot World Into thin air Then there are the dance tracks in a Relentless sort of style which disr...

Re: Shorter songs - Annoying

Yes but Very is of a very different genre, pop songs with a structure. Super and post-Super are dense disco-songs where even the untrained ear can hear that there is room for at least a minute or two of extra length. I wouldn't normally... on the other hand was way too short on the album, the 7'' h...

Re: Musik - Cabaret and EP

You really have to be amazed at how prolific Neil and Chris are. I cant think of any artist who puts out so much new material. main albums, B-sides, collaborations, side projects, musicals. I cant think of anyone really. It's been quite an enjoyment to constantly be able to talk about the new PSB a...

Re: Disturbing PSB dreams

I used to have dreams as a child of finding a warehouse full of records (vinyl that is) by many artists, among them PSB and records with tracks unknown to me. Then one day while strolling through the streets of a Danish city I found a bootleg CD in a record store and there were unknown tracks. This ...
