I guess the less you like songs, the less you hear them and the more you forget it.

Or when you find a track you really like, you hear it that often that you throw it away and forget about it.

A few b-sides off recent (2013 onwards) singles, I can't even remember their names.

I never really learned the lyrics of several Super songs. That's a first for me.

I've listened to so much PSB in the last few years, its difficult to think of something that's forgettable. Trying to remember something you forget.

It's just my little tribute to Caligula darling
- This doesn't grab me at all, I would add My night too but I really quite like the opening, choruses and closing
Groovy
- Can't quote anything besides the chorus
The pop kids
- Boring, boring, boring
This is a song about boys and girls. You hear it playing all over the world.

Absolutely Fabulous.

The Boys seem to have forgotten it too. Weird really. A top ten hit that they’ve subsequently disowned.
is is and isnt isnt

What about Potemkin? Does anyone even recall the tracklist?

That’s harsh too - mind you, each to their own.
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.

Does anyone remember Inside? Or was it so forgettable you forgot it?

For some reason everytime I hear "Playground bullies taunt and cheat" the next line in my head is "a sensitive soul who's a role model". Must be the same chords or something.
there ya go! I was struggling with something for this thread, I was picking songs in my mind and thinking...you know, I hate such and such song but does that make it forfgettable? and then I saw you mention"inside", and drew a total blank. I buy everything they put out so I must have heard it...and behold I typed it into my song library and I have it...and yep...totally forgettable that I actually did forget it.
so ah, thank ya!
