MTV Italy played a 5h best of tonight, including "Go west". Good version, tragic vocals. Chris looks even more thin, whereas Sylvia has a kind of avantgarde taste for salamandra-like hairstyle, which makes her sort of fresh :) Yeah, facial thinning/fat redistribution is a fairly common side effect ...

Really? :twisted: You're more than welcome to prove otherwise but you've done an exceptionally terrible job so far. Oh, I should be so lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky. Why do people indulge in this? It spoils a perfectly decent thread with petty bickering. It really puts people, me included, off sites l...

Come on! If you want to talk about the difference between Kylie Minogue's "I should be so lucky" and PSB's "It's a sin". Why don't you create another thread? This one is to talk about other THE NEW PSB ALBUM :twisted: Oh, puh-lease... :roll: You just want to go on and on about how fab Trevor Horn i...

For example, I totally hate U2's music but there's not denying they are fantastic at what they do. Can you then put into words why U2 are fantastic at what they do and Coldplay are apparently not, since both are dealing in the same kind of bombastic rock and the latter are currently overtaking the ...

I have some ambivalence about the idea that boosting foreign aid and debt relief to Africa will improve economic conditions in that area. With the Live8 concert approaching, and the One campaign being hyped by celebrities, it seems worth pointing out that there's a big difference between wanting to...

Jamie>> While I admire your pluralistic view on opinions, I must disagree with your total relativism in this statement: "there is clearly no such thing as a 'right' or 'wrong' opinion, because it infers that other opinions are in some way less valid" So, if it's my opinion that homosexuals ought to...

I disagree. There can only be one 'right' and one 'wrong' and when two opinions are contradicting, one of them is always the correct one. I do however loosely agree with Eldritch's take on it. I'm sorry, but there are people whose opinion I value more than the opinion of others. When I say 'I Shoul...

But Jamie, the Latin word humilis is in turn derived from the word 'humus' meaning earth or ground. As such, to be 'humilis' simply means to be 'down to earth'... as such, one could argue that Zeus is NOT the person who needs to be taught the meaning of the word.. To be honest, I'm not really sure ...

I totally agree. It doesn't matter what the writer intended to write about, it's what people think it's about that matters. Anyway, for a record that according to Neil and Chris started as a humorous, camp, Bobby O style tune, you lot have been reading too much on it. Next stop, Try It (I'm In Love...

Can you forgive her?? was not Top-20 in nearly any European country, I think it might have been Top-20 in Germany and maybe Spain, but nowhere I else. Yes, 'Can you forgive her?' reached #17 in Germany. Year: 1993 Charts: UK 7 / ITA 8 / SWE 9 / GER 17 / CH 19 / NL 28 / US club 1 Cool. Do you have t...

Have they released anything people remember since Go West? Yes, Se a vida é and New York City boy. People don't remember those, really. Yes they do. You're being naughty and generalising for the whole planet again. Bad Zeus. Almost everyone I know remembers Se a vide e. And you find me a single lat...
