The song "Mid life crisis" that they supposedly wrote for closer to heaven but it was left out. Neil described it as a funny but sad song.
I'd like to hear what musings Neil and chris made about getting older
You can hear those musings in “Invisible.”
That must be why I love the song so much! I can really relate to it! :lol:

Obsessed is too strong however I wish A little black dress could see the light of day in some form. I also love the Abbey Road demo of West End Girls. A brilliant version!

I'm really keen on some unreleased stuff.

Bounce, It's alright (Heaven), Rent (Haçienda), Sixteen going on Seventeen (and the rest of stonewall '97), Only Love, Philadelphia are the examples I frequently listen to.

More PSB would be great, almost any era.
As mentioned, some live bootlegs have been great.
If any were captured directly from the feed and could be presented cleanly then I think we'd love it.
Only if they sound different enough to the well known tours and existing releases, though.
Further to that, the Boys sometimes record studio versions of the updated versions. Why not remaster those and release them as alternate versions.

Again 'obsessed' is a strong word but I think they should release Angelic Thug.
Musik with Neil's voice could be something, but I'm not big on the lyrics personally.
Demo version of Betrayed might be good. It's without the DnB style.
How about more demos written for other artists. Think Liza, Dusty, Cicero even? Some of those songs are very strong, and I think PSB iterations could be great.
I agree with a previous comment about releasing early early PSB demos.

The Bond song they worked on in 1987. (Not the song that became ‘This Must Be..).

..and off course ‘Bounce’.

I'll never regret the fact that there's no proper release of the Electric Tour, especially the One More Chance mash-up and the explosive I'm Not Scared version.
Have a look at my taste in music:

That’s the thing about negative energy, about hatred. It can be positive. It throws into relief all the things you know you like. It tells you, by elimination, what you’re about. Sometimes you can only define yourself by what you hate. Hatred becomes an inspiration; it makes you think, “What I’m doing now I totally believe in, and I don’t care what other people say.” Guided by hatred, you don’t have to follow the herd. - Neil Tennant

"The telegraph boy, it delivers" as Neil quoted the song in Q magasine, i really thought it would be released as a b side.

Only Love. Bounce. Bubadubadubadubadubadum and (although on the further listening) Dancing In The Dusk. DITD is just brilliant and I still can’t believe they never got past the demo stage with it.
is is and isnt isnt

“Love your enemy,” which has never leaked, sounded enticing from its description in Literally: “gorgeous strings” and apparently a Massive Attack vibe.

I’d love for the Bobby O demos / album prototype to get a proper release. And in addition to the Bobby O demo of “In the club or in the queue,” there’s a version they worked on in 1999, too.

“Bounce” is brilliant and deserves a release as a lost archival could-have-been hit.

The whole concert from 2002 in Germany, Hamburg - Grünspan (Recorded by ARTE TV).
Also the studio versions from all their tour new arrangements in proper quality, maybe as a kind of Best Of.
