Re: Should PSB re-release "London" in UK after the

What do you think? I know it's a very controvercial issue..., but it's such a beautiful and appriopriate song... Raf What do I think- I think it's a ridiculous suggestion- with the reference of immigrants coming to London and the line "let's break the law"- it's hardly going to fit in with the mood...

I just want them to release a single with a bit of wow factor, something that grabs my attention and reminds me of just how good PSB can be at writing fantastic pop songs. The last single that really did that was Can You Forgive her. Somehow though, I feel that I am going to be dissapointed............

American release only I believe. Contains a strange mix of songs if i remember,7 and 12 inch mixes, demos and remixes. I bought it years ago but haven't listened to it for a while. Nice cover though!!

I am pleased that PSB are not part of this event. The whole thing makes me nauseous listening to the likes of Bono and Chris Martin encouraging us to reduce poverty whilst at the same time sloping off to enjoy their luxury lives as multi millionaires. Attention and publicity seeking media whores the...

Ronald- you really aren't making your point very well are you? Resulting to personal insults doesn't make your viewpoint any more convincing.

Anyway, hooray! for the single not been confirmed. Maybe Parlo will ask Neil and Chris 'What do you hope to accomplish by this release?' and get them to snap out of this terrible idea. Nothing they do is ever good with some "fans". If they release nothing they whine about the lack of new material. ...

Not knocking the song Dave because obviously I haven't heard it, just questioning the logic of releasing a single for a soundtrack of an event that took place nearly a year ago. It doesn't make commercial sense, especially as single releases are loss making exercises anyway. Why not just concentrate...

The general public will think its something new, and most of us have been talking about it for the best part of 12 months so it hasnt gone away! Think positive!! The general public will not get to hear it - not in the uk anyway. It's hardly going to get the programmers at Capital or Radio 1 frothin...

What I don't understand is why they are releasing the soundtrack to an event that was nearly a year ago? Surely the time to release it was just after the performance. Can you see the record buying public in the UK rushing to buy this? I think not. Very strange.
