Re: Agenda: Top Three Moments

1. The melody in the background during the chorus of Social Media that sounds like a police siren, it's very clever.

I'll think of something more later.

Re: The end of 2016

The "drunk" trick was in 2000, 16/17 years ago. Face facts, the boys will probably darken the singles top 40/50/60/70 again. Its not 1990. Why bother with a video when it won't get shown. Let them stick to releasing what single they want with whoever remixer is available with bonus tracks thrown in...

Re: ROH Shows "Inner Sanctum" SPOILERS

The artistic statements they made back in the day was much based on religious oppression, the AIDS epidemic, and other miserable things. Now that people are being butchered every week in a new terrorist attack there's no room for more negativety. What people want is escapism, to forget for a while a...

Re: ROH Shows "Inner Sanctum" SPOILERS

I think they're just being themselves in a cool unapologetic way. They create the show they'd want to see songs they'd want to hear. Their back catalogue is full of songs that were awesome 20 years ago but do nothing for me now, whereas I keep playing Winner occasionally. It's like eating cheap cand...

The guest is a fantastic movie. A masterpiece IMO. When Annie's Anthonio started playing in the background I screamed out loud.

Oh yeah, this is the good stuff. This song deserves a video and a really good one.

Re: Let the petheads decide [next single divagations)

Why bother with a second single especially without any video? Release Super special edition with a bonus disc with brand new tracks and remixes in conjuction with the summer performances. One of the songs used for promo with and actual video. Surely there should be at least one video for this era? ...

Re: If they were not gay

If they weren't gay they'd have lost a large part of their pop star enigma and appeal. I remember after buying Introspective, my first Psb album, looking at those pictures inside holding their pet dogs just being so intrigued by them. The other pop stars from that time weren't that hard to figure ou...

Re: Would you include one song from "Super" in your Top 10 PSB songs of all time?

Nothing anywhere near top ten, but Undertow satisfies my cravings for another Fluorescent.

Re: Have they lost their touch?

Psb and pop music in general were still evolving up until the 00's. We were still getting to know them, they did something unexpected with every album, you just didn't know they had it in them... Release was different but also predictable. The new sound was like emperors new clothing, drawing attent...
