Re: BBC4 Top of the Pops Repeats

Just a gentle remind that PSB's remastered appearance on Top of the Pops from 16 October 1986 performing Suburbia is broadcast tonight at 19:30 on BBC4. This performance of Suburbia is not included on the Ultimate DVD.

They should invest it all in more polls.

Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

So Neil has bagged numbers 1 to 5. I wonder what he's getting Chris for Christmas this year...?

I'm Not Scared should have been the lead single. It would have been their 5th number 1. Nailed on.
They may well have released it as the lead single had Eighth Wonder not released their version and had a hit with it a few months previously.

Re: Trevor Horn - London show with special guests

I'm mildly curious to hear the version of Brothers In Arms with Simple Minds and I really don't know why. I think I need to go and scrub myself with bleach now..

Re: Dricography: Ranking Nightlife

The best song on the album was the one with Kylie and I can’t even remember the name of it. Haven’t listened to it in maybe 10 - 15 years. One of their poorer offerings. In Denial. A decent tune that would have been improved if it had a stronger female vocalist. Kylie Minogue is no Dusty Springfiel...

Had Trevor Horn not made a complete mess out of It's Alright, Introspective would have been a great candidate for best album ever. As it is, it will only rank second for me.

I wasn't aware the Trevor had "made a complete mess out of It's Alright" That's news to me..

Re: Dricography: Ranking Introspective

Your assiduous analysis of all things PSB's is always a constitutive read. I prognosticate to your further dissection of this brilliant album in their canon.

Re: Dricography: Ranking Very

I've never really liked Shameless. I love the sentiment behind it regarding pointless Z List fame, and you only need to look around now at the narcissistic morons from Big Brother, Love Island ect, but it always sounded like a PSB's parody - a Spitting Image song almost. Perhaps that was the point..

Re: BBC4 Top of the Pops Repeats

No wonder Chris had nothing left to give for the rest of their live career. He put it all in for the one performance. Let's face it, at any moment, there, Neil is about to announce "Foul stroke, four, Jimmy Savile." Drico. :shock: :shock: :lol: :lol: Does it get any more 80's (and Imperial) than th...

I don't understand why they dislike this performance. Neil is clearly playing the character from the song and Chris' drumming is ace.

I wasn't aware they disliked this perfromance. Apart from Neil's white gloves it's great..!!

Just a polite reminder that PSB's appear on the Top of the Pops repeat tonight on BBC4 at 19:30 performing Opportunities. If anyone could capture this I would appreciate it.

Great to finally have this appearance in remastered quality. One of their more memorable performances on TOTP's, even excusing Neil's white gloves..
