Trying to find somewhere to hang my coat, but it would appear that Vocal has stolen all the hooks.

Hello,

once in a while i say something and this time i can´t hold back.

Don´t get me wrong i love that the PSB release a new Album within such
a short time. It was normally every three years.

But as someone already said about the medley thing, i don´t like it.
Hey in the 90s i disliked this mix CDs with 40 tracks on one CD where one
track was played for 50 sec. to 1min 30. I never understood this as when a
cool song appeared and you started dancing the song had already finished.

I have no problem with marging two songs together but why is it not possible to
play both songs in its full length???? Is their aim to marge two songs into each other
in a way that they have the length of one song?
I have some really good deep house compilations and the songs have lengths from 6
to 7 minutes and perhaps there are missing 20 or 30 sec. from each song. But you can enjoy
a song for 6 or 7 minutes.
Before someone says that you can´t play songs on a PSB concert for 6 or 7 minute i say it was
meant in the deep house context. For PSB it would be enough if the play the song as its original
length is.
Why do i say this is as following:
I heard the version of Rent and i was thrilled. But after 2 minutes it was over. I was happy to hear
somewhere and after 3 minutes it is over (only 1 minute with lyric). Domino Dancing is 3.40 long but has an intro
of 1.30 and an instrumental break of 30 sec. Face like that is to short, Opportunities only 3 minutes. Integral to short.
But scared has full length and so do others. I had no problem when they leave 2 or 3 songs so that the others are full length. Someone said that they only play 4 min. songs but what is with young offender and being boring from nightlife?
I really hate this medley thing. This was just written because the version of rent is really really cool and after 2 min. it is over. They can merge two songs together but there is the possibility to play both songs in full length, I can´t get
over the fact that there are some really cool new versions of songs and after 2 minutes they are over.
Can´t understand it. Vocal is 5 minutes long so why can´t rent be 3.40 long??????
By the way i really like the electric technical and laser style of this new tour very modern and stylish but cutting of songs is horrible.
Hope that disliking something can be said.

Of course it can be said. Personally, I think there's some merit in what you say. I found some of the Pandemonium medleys irritating. Can You Forgive Her? gave way almost immediately to Pandemonium and Integral just introduced Building a Wall when my preference was for the former tracks rather than the middling Yes numbers. It can work well, but my issue was with the sense that better songs were giving way to inferior cuts from the current album of the time.

That said, they've got such a vast catalogue that it's interesting to see them nod to their history with some unexpected segues. It keeps the pace of the show kicking along.

Thanks for your answer.

For me a concert should be just a concert.
Playing one song after each other.
You said forgiv her her going into pandemonium. For me, song wise and musically wise, they go very well into each other
but i didn´t liked the jumping from forgive her to Pandem. and back and forth. Better would have been the thing to
taking the end beats of one song and going to the next song with same beats but not singing the vocals of forgive her on top
of pandem. and the other way round.
All started with the brit awards. I have never been a fan of the medley. I want to hear a good song in its full length and for the example
of rent i would dye for hearing this song in full. There is a way of merging two songs but playing them full. Hearing the version of somewhere really makes me cry because i can´t understand why why why why it must be like they did it. WHY NOT PLAY THE SONG IN FULL and then do the instrumental break for changing costumes. There are other bands who do shows of 2 and a half hours which are older then PSB and who are older which are doing physically more on stage then PSB. So if they would have played all songs in full they would come nearly to 2 hours. Thats whats disappoints me.

I have also no problem with adding the beats of in the night to the beginning beats of go west or using the beats of in the night for the instrumental break of WHY DON'T WE LIVE TOGETHER. It sounds cool.
I don´t like putting two songs together in the length of one song.

Once again.
Domino Dancing is not listed in the set list together with
another song so no medley song.
Its duration is 3.40
Intro is 1.30.
Then the lyrics starting. Neil sings:

I don't know why, I don't know how
I thought I loved you but I'm not sure now
I've seen you look at strangers too many times
The love you want is of a different kind

Remember when we felt the sun
A love like paradise, how hot it burned
A threat of distant thunder, the sky was red
and where you walked you always turned every head

(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day) Domino dancing
(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day) Domino dancing

AND LEVEAS ALL OF THIS LYRICS

I thought that when we fought I was to blame
but now I know you play a different game
I've watched you dance with danger still wanting more
Add another number to the score

(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day) Domino dancing
(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day) Domino dancing

HE SINGS THIS:
When you look around you wonder
Do you play to win
or are you just a bad loser?

AND AGAIN HE LEAVES ALL THIS.

(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day) Domino dancing

I don't know why, I don't know how
I thought I loved you but I'm not sure now
I hear the thunder crashing, the sky is dark
and now a storm is breaking within my heart

(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day) Domino dancing
(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day) Domino dancing

WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY is it not possible
to sing the whole song when not listed as a medley song.
I AM DISAPPOINTED.

With their back catalogue, they could have a live show that ran all day. Some trade offs have to be made, and if an intelligent medley can incorporate two songs into the space of one and therefore bring a bit more diversity than "wasting time" on hearing the same chorus 4 or 5 times, then I'm comfortable with that. I didn't think I would be when I heard this was being done for the Pandemonium tour, but I thought they were well done and am happy to see the practice continue...

All killer, no filler :up:
