Or an instrumental.

I‘d sort of quite like it if this album didn’t really have any instrumentals tbh but I think I’m going to be disappointed in that regard.

From what we know, realistically only Happy People, Hoping For A Miracle, I Don’t Wanna or Only The Dark could be an instrumental. Given the track times I’d predict none of them are. Monkey Business may well be minimal vocal.
Woof.

I suppose I’m counting ‘minimal vocal’ as instrumental as well. Like, Happiness, Pazzo!, Inner Sanctum are all fundamentally instrumental tracks to me even though obviously they are not. And songs like Groovy and Burn aren’t exactly lyric-packed. Just a bit more... wordsmithery, I suppose?... would be nice this time.

I don't wanna is not the worse title. Monkey business, you are the one, hoping for a miracle, are really common.
Monkey business is the name of a Black eye peas album. Of course it does't say anything about the quality of the songs.

The title Monkey Business just makes me think of Freddie Mercury's Living On My Own and it's remix which are great songs so I don't mind it either.

"I don't wanna" is fine to me too. PSB have thrived with using everyday phrases in a musical context, and it's part of what makes them unique.

That's helped me to get past Rod Stewart. So thank you for that.

I am hoping that these songs are great as the titles of them sound really silly. :down:
