One song, then home..!

#1 Post by Straight_Talker » Wed 01 Aug 2018, 8:28 pm

Here’s a question for you all!

I remember booking tickets for the Royal Albert Hall charity concert, thinking to myself “I dearly hope that they perform the Introspective version of Left to my own devices”. I also remember thinking, after hearing it, in its full glory, that if I left there and then, I’d be a happy guy (they opened with it).

Anyway, this got me thinking...what song would you choose to hear performed live if you could only have one song played, at a venue close to you for a nominal fee?!!!
More strobes and BANGING, please!

Do you know the difference between the two genders..?

So Hard
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.

I’m probably going to get slated for this, but here goes!

I’d go for Go West, but not any old version. I’d choose the version that they played at Live 8, in Moscow but minus Sylvia!

I love that version. Chris playing piano during the “low key” first bit...the melodic guitar solo/riff...then it goes full on 4 on the floor disco before going all trance-like at the end for a few minutes or more with Neil playing keyboards next to Chris à la “Young offender - Nightlife Tour”. Would be a quality seven or eight minutes, that!!!

Have they ever performed DJ Culture live, even as a one-off?

I don't recall them even doing any TV performances either at the time of its release/ Discography

Only the once, huh? :(

Any recordings of this Heaven gig in circulation/ online and are they of a listenable quality? I appreciate you won't be able to share links here but I'll keep a look out for it when I go on YouTube et al.

The Was It Worth It video was recorded that night

That audio recording can be found online, it's poor quality but certainly listenable
