Please God, no. Although they have abandoned many of their original principles, don't let them turn into Bono.

Cripes sake Tom Hanks got over it. My advice is stop freaking yourself and others out. You find out who is who in things like this. theres just no helping people who can only see the end.
Tom Hanks did have invaluable experience of fighting killer viruses and living in self-isolation though.

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

The best PSB's song for these days it Home and Dry. So my baby's on the road Doing business, selling loads Charming everyone there With the sweetest smile There's a plane at JFK To fly you back from far away All those dark and frantic Transatlantic miles Far away through night and day you fly long ...

Maybe Satanas can host a virtual festival like she did before.

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

There is some good news. they were saying that Chinas's infection rates are dropping fast, on both levels they are learning what to do as far as containment and possibly the virus is doing what they usually do which is blast thru the population and then it sort of slinks away. and then you just hav...

Re: Why is Neil fascinated by Tony Blair?

I’m sure I will be flamed for this but there are many people such as myself, and possibly Neil, who rank Blair as the UK’s best ever PM. In my lifetime, Heath, Wilson, Callaghan, Thatcher, Major, Blair, Brown, Cameron, May, Johnson. I know which one I’d choose. Just like Harold Shipman was the UK's...

Re: Anyone else not heard the new album yet?

Only The Dark My least favourite song on the Instrumental CD, I think this sounds like a really bad late 80s backing track, akin to instrumental music for a cheap straight-to-video film from 1988 (and I know what I mean - I was a teenager then, and saw lots of that kind of thing). The bridge sounds...

Thou its hard to say for sure...Singapore has zero deaths and been in the line of fire from the beginning (rather impressive) - I know they got some people in ICU but still no deaths.
Everywhere should ban chewing gum.

Re: Why is Neil fascinated by Tony Blair?

I don't really view it in those terms. They've always written about contemporary events, which covers most of the songs you cite. I can't think of any other recent figures who have had quite the spectacular fall from grace in the public's eye that Blair's had, so it's a good subject to write about....

Why is Neil fascinated by Tony Blair?

Hoping for a Miracle is the track from Hotspot that has grown on me most since release. I think my initial sangfroid towards it was learning that it was yet another track about Blair but the gorgeous classical melody and PSB melancholia have won me over. Why is Neil fascinated by him though? He's ju...
