yeah I was wondering about that.there seems to be no second verse and it has a long instrumental section with no singing in it and I wonder if they would keep it that way for the single.

I thought the song was edited for the show so some stuff could be happening on the screen without there being singing all the way thru like background music for a movie in a key scene.I am assuming though neil was singing along with a pre recorded vocal of himself.I think it will be close to the live version as far as arrangement and they will probably keep the string section close to how it was in the show.

Hey Dave... do you have any new info about the single not recorded yet and/or being slightly different?

If no one has heard it yet and their "It's a crappie track" opinions are based on the live versions their comments suprise me even more.
Remember the first version of In denail we heard that little snippet? The final version was way different (For the worst in this case) so let's just wait with judging after you heard it.

Maybe there will be at least two versions of this song: "Single Version" and "Soundtrack Version".

It seems you have a problem with those who have more copies of Release than you do. I don't own any of the US 2CD sets yet I own 20 different Release releases. People are free to purchase and (disgracefully) steal whatever they want these days.

They're also free to print bootleg copies of rarties and sell them on ebay or Esprit in bulk.

Talking about boycots and stuff is just to silly for words. I'm sure the same bunch of guys will scream about what a great single it is if it would make no. 1. Which BTW I don't think it will.


And about insulting people sorry to those who feel insulted I'm just (trying to) friendly kid around a bit. If you knew me you would know. I understand of course I should perhaps choose my words more carefully.

Well, the reason I am 'negative' is precisely because I have heard it, and its complete shite. Its embarrasing.

The Pet Shop Boys have built their impressive career on excellent pop singles. This is not an excellent pop single, and its simply not possible to convincingly claim otherwise.

The Potemkin soundtrack is superb, but this release would do nothing to showcase just how good it is - quite the opposite.

As for chart position - I would cut off my own testicles with rusty cutlery if this single even made the top 20. Utter shite.

And as far as I understood, it oughtn't be sharpened at all. That would make things just a tad too convenient

As I understood the single version/mix isn't even finished yet so you probely judging on the live recording don't think that's fair.
I think Before is a crappie shittie and embarrasing track but lot's of you don't agree. I think it's fair to state this opinion because I heard the track in full. But that's not something you can say.

DAMN I'm on a crusade. :D :lol: :D :lol: :D :lol: :D

Difference is, Before got to #7 no matter what people think and it's a chart position that PSB have still to better 8 years on.

Let's see how No time for tears will chart.

Chart Positions were based on sales figures for that particular week.

A single could, potentially, sell 1 million copies in its life time and NEVER make the top 10, yet another could sell just 10000 in its first week and hit #1.

Now you're making sence (Even if I think you being sarcastic) let's wait and see and let's judge afterwards.

If I would have heard Before before it's release I would have adviced against it but history prooves I would have been wrong.

BTW I own 4 copies of B4. Isn't it Ironic? But to my defence there are different versions on all 4.

Nothing wrong with No Time For Tears, any serious music fan would see it as a decent song...
