Re: Diane Warren + Psb = Numb ¿and two more songs?

Do you think it means they have chosen Numb between three songs or they have got three Diane's songs to be recorded if they want? I wonder if the "recording work" with Elton John that included Believe/Song For Guy and In Private also included another Warren song. In Literally they certainly hinted ...

How about the world's first triple A-side single with Minimal, Numb (BBC live) and Fugitive (7")?

The single could then promote all three albums - Fundamental, Show and Fundamentalism. :wink:

Re: Sick to death of 'Dumb'

It's a song about the feelings in the US after 911 and the BBC use it to describe the feelings of England fans after they are dropped out of the World Cup??! :shock: That is completely over the top. :roll: A coup for the boys, but by next week it will be forgotten about. Are you sure you are not ge...

Seems it was done with PopArt in mind. :shock: Didn't I read a rumour somewhere that Believe/Song For Guy was re-done with that project in mind as well?

Look at the album sales for the PSB's last couple of albums 'post' first single - virtually nill. What is wrong with returning with a BIG BANG. Rather that, than a 'slow burner' - it's not as much fun. Could it be that EMI's tactic is to have an even bigger bang from the second single. Although unl...

All of Warren's big hits have an "uplifting" quality to them - hence the term "power ballads". Numb isn't really a power ballad at all - there's nothing uplifting about it. It's not a hit record, period. Compared to the likes of If I Could Turn Back Time it's not, but just because it's not the bog-...

I can well understand the mixed reaction to the track. The emotions expressed are quite raw and personal and can seem somewhat incongruous in the context of a mere pop record. It's the Love Is A Catastrophe of this album in that sense. It's probably far too overwrought to stomach in a carefree trip...

The reason why the Boys engaged Warren was the idea from Chris Lowe because they were looking for a song that could be a single - so it was Chris's great idea to have this song and hence to have this as a single! I think the boys must have always thought of this as their mass appeal single, which i...

I'm really looking forward to this album, especially as the new hot thing Lily Allen is guest vocalist on two tracks. She's superb.

I think it would be better if a lot of these Numb threads were segued together. It gets untidy and distracting when there are so many threads with a similar subject matter.

I know they didn't write it but I don't really want anyone else but Neil to sing a PSB song. I didn't like Robbie's version of Jealousy at all. Too mannered.
