Finally got my 7" today. I thought it was going to get lost because I was away for the holidays when it was delivered but I picked it up today from the post office. Nice item!

I am really amazed and surprised how good the "Decide" remix by CYA sounds and had to inform me a bit about the remixers. On their Soundcloud page I discovered that they have also been introduced by big dance/house/trance label "Anjunabeats" and not everyone just comes in there. https://soundcloud.com/whoiscya

My dream would be an entire album by a decent remixer who doesn't call himself "Stuart Price" and delivers far better results, preferably from the masters "Above & Beyond" personally, the founder of the label mentioned above.

Just wanted to say I've grown to really love this track and it's going to be a great exhale towards the end of an album!

Esp appreciate Neil's inflection on some of the moody lyrics

Like his mumbling on this bit "Otherwise it's just hype you hope / People won't notice you're peddling"

And the sullen echo on this bit "Time is so heartless / You don't want to know"

Lethargic yet sweet

Can someone please complete the extra verse on the album version? What I got (not necessarily right though):
You've got me all wrong
I'm not on your grapevine
When I came along you were just in my eye line
I'm not one to stare — I'm not that committed
But I'm always aware of what isn't the ????????

My question as a non-English speaker is:

What does "I'm not on your grapevine" mean?

Greendrake - I have only listened to the album once. :D I think both that and (I cannot believe I am actually saying this :shock: ) - Monkey Business both sound much better on the album.

Is there any reason why this single was not released on 12 inch?

Because there was no 12” mix?
Woof.

I am still one of those few unlucky souls who could not love this song even a little bit after so many tries, self- motivation and several listens. No it still sounds so boring I don't even want to remember, I am sorry. As much as this song falls below my radar, I am still crazy about Decide to the point of being obsessive...

It seems that "heather" may go down as another Birthday Boy, where some people think it's one of the best things they've ever done, whereas for others it just doesn't click with them. I love both songs.
