Should be there in a couple of minutes I guess. You can already listen to the snippet of it on iTunes.
Oh, is Happiness the new single? How come we can buy it as a standalone track now?

First of all that backing track is perfectly serviceable ........Nice beat...nice groove...but that absolutely dreadful piano part and singing melody.....he should have rapped the verses about something interesting.

That synth repeating line that makes it sound like positive role model also is starting to get on my nerves. But I like the beat when it first starts up. Personally I would have though when they had this come thru the studio moniters one of them would have said hahahaha ok...thats enough goofing around for today...lets delete this bullshit and work on the actual opener.

Best thing about this track is that it does really divide the fanbase. There's everything from "f*ck this is brilliant" to "what a complete and utter mess what were they thinking" :lol: PRICEless :wink:

yeah the wildly polarized opinions are really making me lol today, especially when they alternate back and forth post by post.

My opinion is a bit more moderate. I mean, my personal pet shop boys top 20 best list remains *thoroughly* undisturbed by the launch of this track, but I still think it's pretty fun and will probably get some attention just because it's so audacious.

britboy wrote:After all the discussion of TPK being more like a b-side this track put things into perspective, this is easily b-side material though to my ears it would be a c-side if that were possible, I am still somewhat shell shocked and will probably not be listening to it again.
I know I've gone off about this elsewhere in the forum, but the notion of "pop kids" sounding like a b-side is something I will never understand. To me that just reads as lazy criticism by people who just don't like the song. I don't care for "go west" "se a vida e" and "new york city boy" but I can admit that they all sound like singles . . .

Despite of some indecipherable Neil vocal snippets the only real vocals are:

It's a long way to happiness
a long way to go
but I'm gonna get there boy
the only way I know

'Cause It's a long way to happiness
a long way to go
but I'm gonna get there boy
the only way I know

It's a long way to happiness
and when we get there
Is anybody's guess

I like the insanity. It's a very modern Radio 1 type track done by PSB.
I sincerely *love* Disco 2 and listen to it straight through regularly.

Have to say, i really, really like it. Completely different to anything i've heard before but i do like the abnormal stuff. I still like 'Hold On' :shhh:

Its like listening to PSB after a plate of magic mushrooms.
