(Elysium)
Requiem
Listening

(Electric)
Axis
Fluorescent
Inside a dream
Shouting

(Super)
Pop kids
Inner sanctum
Burn
A cloud in a box

It's hard for me to pick only 10, so much stuff that I thoroughly enjoy listening to. Construct almost made it, so did some more tracks from Elysium era like Woods and I started a joke.

1. Love is a Bourgeois Construct - Never tire of this, always fills me with energy and enthusiasm.

2. A Cloud in a Box - Something magical about the chemistry of this song, has been my ringtone since it came out.

3. Leaving (Believe in PSB Remix) - The "I believe in love" bit, amazing!

4. The Pop Kids (Full Story) - Always exciting to hear the lead track from a new PSB album, this has never lost its appeal. Since Before, I always worry what I might hear!

5. Say it to Me - Just a stonking dance tune. So pleased this was a single.

6. She Pops - Such fun!

7. Memory of the Future - Stand out track for me on Elysium (and I know a beautiful woman called Madeleine!)

8. Brick England - Who knew Jarre could actually still write good songs rather than weird versions of his greatest hits. (Love Swipe to the Right too).

9. Vocal - Outstanding!

10. Get it Online - We all do it, so glad there's a song about it!

P.S.
(If I could I'd include No Excuse as technically it wasn't released until recently). The chorus is so great!

Drico - your top 4 are on the money! The same as mine; and Vocal is for me their best track for a significantly longer period.

Top ten missing In His Imagination which knocks on the door of that top 4, I love it so much.

I'll take issue with your inclusion of Together. Its a PSB track that has one of the most underwhelming effects on me. PSB by numbers for me, but each to his/her own.

Enjoyable and inspiring thread as I go off to listen to all this :) [Together included]
