Re: BBC4 Top of the Pops Repeats

1990 is up next. Just watching 'Big Hits 1990' - Loose Fit was such a tune. Pedant alert: it was released as a single in 1991 and only got to number 17, so fails on both criteria, but nice to see it anyway. Realise how much I liked Madchester and baggy, how it seamlessly complemented the ravey stuf...

Re: Single versions

Suburbia and It's alright were completely re-recorded for their singles, the others mentioned in the thread were just remixes I think.

Re: Pet Shop Boys on Youtube

Found these "unreleased full length extended versions" - I presume they are fan mixes and not legit?

Re: OMD - Pandora's Box (It's a Long, Long Way)

I bought the limited edition wooden box cd single of Pandora's box for 99p in HMV in Wakefield when it came out - sold it a few years to a guy in Canada on ebay for over £100! If I had a time machine I would go back and squirrel away numerous copies of such collectors items! Did the same with a limi...

Re: B-sides on 12"-singles

Greetings, I don't think that really counts though, Steve.... otherwise you could add say that Young Offender was the "b-side" of Liberation... or that West End Girls was the "b-side" of I Wouldn't Normally Do This Kind Of Thing and Flamboyant. I think, to be consistent, we need to speak of the def...

Re: B-sides on 12"-singles

It just struck me that in the 80s and early 90s PSB 12"-singles used to have their b-sides on them, but the last time this happened was in '94 with Yesterday when I was mad (if I'm not mistaken). The last 12-inch single with a b-side on it would be 'Was it worth it?'. From 'Can you forgive her?' on...

Re: It couldn't happen here - German dub

I assume the OP means a version of the film that has been dubbed with German instead of the original English. I read it at first as a remix version of the song.

Re: BBC4 Top of the Pops Repeats

This is my favourite programme of the week - great nostalgia blast and just about to reach the years where I spent all my money on music. It's a crying shame that it was scrapped.
