What have I done to deserve this? ‘20 w/Tracey Thorn.
I sincerely *love* Disco 2 and listen to it straight through regularly.

I really don't understand the liking for I don't wanna. I find it to be an incredibly dull, repetitive b-side about nothing much at all. Like In his imagination but worse.

I would say Happy people is definitely the best option for a fourth single. I expect it will coincide with Annually - there'll probably be a joint announcement very soon with a pre-order for Literally / CD single and the 12 inch.

As for a fifth? I'd be surprised. Although Electric and Super sort-of had five singles each, the singles from Hotspot have been much more 'traditional' singles with proper releases and formats being released simultaneously. If there were a fifth it may be just some kind of limited edition 12" remix or something. I could be wrong of course

To me, Happy People is much more repetitive than I Don't Wanna. Happy People is pretty much just that catchy riff repeated over and over with not much else except a bit of Neilrap whereas I Don't Wanna has a whole story along with the choruses. And In His Imagination is awesome.

I don't like Happy People and You're the one . Weakests tracks for the album for me.

I prefer Only the dark, I don't wanna or Will o the wisp

Unlikely, but would love an Andrew Dawson HappySad mix of Happy People.
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.

Shouldn't this come out sometime in March, and therefore be announced already? If it comes out in April, it's all a bit too close to the My Beautiful Laundrette OST and the new Annually.
Have a look at my taste in music:

That’s the thing about negative energy, about hatred. It can be positive. It throws into relief all the things you know you like. It tells you, by elimination, what you’re about. Sometimes you can only define yourself by what you hate. Hatred becomes an inspiration; it makes you think, “What I’m doing now I totally believe in, and I don’t care what other people say.” Guided by hatred, you don’t have to follow the herd. - Neil Tennant

Seems far too late for a Hotspot single. Maybe something in conjunction with the often rumoured Di5co?

Happy People sounds very Electronic to me.... so maybe that could be a single to tour with.

We could theoretically see something which is both.

Remember how Integral was both the 4th single from Fundamental and the first single from Disco 4?

Retro. :)

Pipe dream I know, but an album together would be good. Something like Franz Ferdinand and Sparks’s FFS Album. Maybe when they’re spending quite a bit of time together on tour, something will happen.
