By the way, the fifth single (if they had one) should be Wedding in Berlim.
If they want their 15th studio album to be called Down The Dumper, sure.

Wedding in Berlin would be a disaster. Its very existence completely ruins Hotspot.

I still can't believe they put "Wedding in Berlin" song on "Hotspot". Not for me. I have never thought that way about any PSB album..."that song needs to be removed"...but I just can't get into "Wedding in Berlin". It doesn't make sense to me to put it on their "Berlin album"...and I live in Berlin. By the way, for those of you that are familiar with my home city of Berlin, there is a neighborhood here in Berlin named Wedding. So one can go to "The neighborhood of Wedding in Berlin" if one wants to. I was in Wedding this past Sunday.

I was thinking that, although Hotspot as a title didn't click for me, now it's almost visionary as there are coronavirus hotspots all over the world. Even bland lyrics like Dreamland or I don't wanna have taken new meaning now. :shock: :shock:

Wedding In Berlin (Blade extended Mix) actually makes the track good. It expands the wedding March part and makes the whole track more cohesive. I prefer it to the original.
is is and isnt isnt

It can be hammed up by as many remixes as you like - it’s still woeful.
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.

Agreed! Wedding In Berlin spoils Hotspot. It should have been left as a wedding present to a friend. An Open Mind or one of the unused tracks should have been included instead.

IF there were to be a 5th single, Will-o-the Wisp would be good.

An Open Mind is one of the best things they've done in years but it doesn't fit the sound of Hotspot at all. It would sound so out of place. An album isn't just a collection of random songs. Wedding in Berlin is fine where it is. You can always stop the album early if you want.

Hey yeah I mentioned somewhere that Hotspot is like the ultimate PSB curse!
