I'm just making my way through it at the moment and enjoying it immensely.

Another oddity is that for me it skips 'La Isla Bonita' because it says it's not available. However if I go to the album that it's from 'Celebration (Belgium)', I can play it ok from there. Very odd.

Thanks for flagging - I will fix in the morning. Just getting used to Spotify and it’s idiosyncrasies Image Glad you like it.

Yes, something odd was going on there too. Should be fixed now.

I don't think they were the backing vocals of this track and I don't see why PSB couldn't like "Thriller". In fact, "Suburbia" (the horror mix) is the "Thriller" of PSB. :D

MJ and PSB are my favourite pop act of all time.

I've just checked the booklet and Thriller is called out as apparently The Waters family performed on both that track and Elysium.

I see someone’s commented that it should be Everything But The Girl’s track Walking Wounded that’s on the list, rather than Single. He’s wrong - Single is namechecked, as well as the album Walking Wounded, rather than the individual track. I haven’t added whole albums. Clearly I don’t want to get into a Facebook debate with him, but if anyone fancies correcting him, please go ahead! Image

On his other point, when Neil sings about listening to the song Tainted Love in I Want To Wake Up, which version do we think he means? I kind of thought the original would be a more likely pairing with Love Is Strange, rather than Soft Cell’s version - hence me including that version. But I will edit if others disagree. Cheers.

Nice! looks like about 25 tracks aren't playable in the US, probably substitutes could be found though
