Why would they release the dullest track from Yes as the third single? Are they mad?

This has got to be a f****** joke! I really hope this information is wrong. If it's true what complete moron made that decision. Are EMI trying to find reasons to drop PSB from their record label. Heads will roll!

I quite like that song. Anyway, still better than More than a dream. Well, after all, it´s Neil´s favourite song from the album. Will they add it to the songs performed on tour??

It's probably the weakest song on the album (good verses, poor chorus) but i can see the reason EMI want it released. I suppose they think it could win over people who aren’t normally into their stuff, Pandemonium or All Over the World aren’t going to convert new fans!

Without wishing to be overly dramatic, if they release a Duffy b-side as a single my PSB collection is straight on e-bay. Hi Neil!

Win over ! LOL...more like repel the few who are left with that snoozefest.
Yes's single strategy has been ace, first releasing a song already on a free giveaway cd and now this (hope its a bad rumour). How quickly the Yes era has ended :(

Have they ever missed the top 40 with a proper single release (physical + digi) ?

This has to be a joke! It's the worst song on the album.

Well never underestimate just how vile taste the vast majority of the UK public has. The most M.O.R thing they've ever released could go down a treat with bored housewives who think Duffy and Katie Melula are cutting edge.

I doubt they'll miss the top 40, so long as Elvis doesn't come back from the dead. They'll sell enough physical bundles to scrape in. Did you see me coming? was #1 on the physical chart.

If you look at the singles chart, they have a couple of options:

i. Neil blacks up and they release some r 'n' b dross. Chris is replaced by a couple of hos and some Cristal.

ii. Neil oranges up and they release a Cascada-style chav anthem. Chris is replaced by an annoying rapper for the obligatory crap rap in the middle.

(Chav Cole will of course be utilising both strategies for her solo album)

Failing that they could just do what they've done for the last two decades and release a decent synth-based track. It's done La Roux no harm, and I notice that Little Boots's new single is up to number fourteen this week too.

But that assumes that the fanbase will buy it. If they release Beautiful People, I certainly won't.

At least New York city boy was a Village People pastiche. A Duffy pastiche? Oh dear.
