"Winner"

It was a good release for Olympics times, face it!. They are British an they live in London. What a good thing they took part of it!

The song is embarrassing and so easy. Not a good movement

I don't particularly like the weird harmony by Neil with himself. Wondering if a more straightforward rendition would have worked (either octaves or with another singer). I do like the bridge and the key change is kindy cheesy but fun in a way.

I still feel the same way about Winner. It's a very unusual PSB song from me in the sense that I don't like the album/single version but I think the Extended HappySad Remix is one of the best remixes of their career. I wish Andrew Dawson would remix one of their songs again.

And I also love the video for Winner. It's like a mini documentary.
