Lyrically and timeline-wise this song is commercially safe for the days of Coronoavirus. Not so sure how Happy People would go down with the emotional landscape of today for a lot of people. I do hold out hope for HP as a 5th single.....four singles on this lp and two of them are the weakest songs on the album.

The Prins Thomas mix of Monkey Business is great. The best in years.
I couldn’t agree more, I love the Prins Thomas mix so much I’ve added it to Hotspot right after Monkey Business.
Monkey business is one of my favorite tracks on the album and the Prins Thomas mix just adds to it wonderfully.

I would argue three of the best songs on the album and Dreamland is a solid track as well.

For me, the best singles choices could have been:

- Dreamland
- Will-o-the wisp
- Monkey Business
- Only the dark
- Happy People

Dreamland, of course since it's a collaboration with a contemp artist
Monkey B, got the groove
Happy People, a sad song that makes you happy - a genuine PSB-combo (we've seen it before with LVQ and Being B)
I don't wanna, another stomper, of course it should be a single
Burning the H is a late excuse, 33 years late, for not letting King's C become a single.

The physical sales of this single will be affected for sure with all the restrictions worldwide. Here in Argentina, today, in the Customs office, the employees already told me that no packages from overseas are accepted anymore since last week...and nobody knows for how long this will last... :/ And I´m sure this is not the only country facing this situation. So, bye bye worldwide phisycal sales for the next months for ANYTHING!!
"I don´t wanna" CD and 12", "Annually", the two books, "It Couldn´t happen here" BluRay...see you...some day in the future...I hope...at re-sale prices... :roll: :(
This is not my signature.

Hmmm. Why though? The virus doesn't last on non-living objects for more than 3 days. Did they cut all flights and ships that deliver post in the country? Did they order that no overseas post to send items to them?

I work in logistics and it's completely safe to handle a package delivered by a courier. FedEx even stated that as recently as 4 or 5 days ago.

Wash your hands and use common sense. It's not rocket science folks.

Just heard the radio edit of I don't wanna. Makes a change to hear that they haven't cut any verses out, just some of the semi-instrumental bits. Hate it when really good bits are cut out to make radio edits (such as the second verse of Numb and the chunks out of Love is a bourgeois construct!).

Snore. They didnt even attempt to remix it. This needed the Heart treatment and to be reworked for the single.

As I find the song rather pedestrian, the edit actually seems to give it a bit more life - the transitions come quicker and it feels like it has a bit more momentum.

Excellent radio edit. Boris needs to ban Rhythm is a Dancer.

Rhythm is a Dancer is so good tho... not sure I could get sick of it.
I sincerely *love* Disco 2 and listen to it straight through regularly.
