Drico.
Dreamland is more a love song than anything else for almost everyone who listens the song except hardcore fans. They know PSB and Olly are gays, so they are not going to give a chance on second themes. They only enjoy with the music.

Watching the performance in the Hyde Park, it is the most obvious interpretation casual people and even fans can give to the song. I don't see any reference to refugees on it. :lol:
nickname, I know that you're not the sharpest tool in the box but do you automatically assume that singers in duets are shagging each other?

People who know who really know who I am, think just the opposite.

Do you think a person who doesn't know anything could have a reliable percepetion about me?.

You make me laugh :lol:

Dreamland sounds like a sub-par track for Erasure. Don't get me wrong, I quite like a lot of Erasure's music, just DL sounds like something from their later catalog. If Andy and Vince did it I would probably shrug and think, hmmm, not their best but they're trying. For the PSB it is just incredibly sub-par.
The way to make this song interesting is to have Angelo Baldamenti re-arrange it and have Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue handle the vox.

I dont like it, but then again for some odd reason I never seem to like the lead singles from their albums. plus the other guys voice just grates on me.

Not a fan of Olly's voice, song would be better if just Neil IMO...or just perhaps a different singer dueting with him.
