Re: Wedding in Berlin: revival of interest?

Musically, the tune is rather jolly.

Lyrically, it sounds like it's written by a child (for example Neil's granddaughter, if he has one).

Re: Final results of poll on feelings about the "greatest hits" tour

What will now happen with the Rating Project?!

This is a catastrophe.

Re: Do You Want A New Bitch (Misheard Lyrics - Merged Threads)

From "The boy who couldn't keep his clothes on":

To shake away at last
the secret in his pants



...and from "Only the wind":

When life is kharma
I have no doubt
No angry drama


The last one makes more rhymical sense (kharma rhymes better with drama than calmer).

Re: Burning the heather

My question as a non-English speaker is:

What does "I'm not on your grapevine" mean?

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Replace "You are the one" and "Wedding in Berlin" with "An open mind" and "Decide", then you have an album with no weakspots.

Re: Best option for 4 th single?

What's the deal with all the pollphobia on this forum? As long as poll is offered as an option, why not use it? If you don't like it, you have the right to not participate.

PS. "Happy people" is the most catchy and modern track on this album. An obviuos single-choice.

Re: Exclusive 7“ in German „Musikexpress“ magazine

Being Boring at #1 I can live with of course but having Happiness is an option at #9 (!) is a bit of a joke (King‘s Cross is at #10...). Also there is no „Leaving“ or „The way it used to be“ on the list but they have „New York City Boy“ at #19, „Dreamland“ at #21, „One and one make five“ at #30, „W...

They can postpone the Hotspot release with a month or so. We are patient, we can wait.

Re: Decide (Burning the Heather b-side)

In Give it a go, if we leave the Brexit interpretation, the narrator gives the object of desire a choice between him or "someone better". In "Decide" it's time to make that choice.

Re: Burning the heather

Yes, but still... "Burning the heather" is the first PSB-single on this chart since "Thursday". That's quite uplifting, isn't it?

Re: Burning the heather

Their first charted single since "Thursday", and their highest charted since "Did you see me coming?".
