That's a track title I'd expect from the Spice Girls. But titles say nothing about the content, especially when PSB are concerned, so who knows, could be the best track on the album.

Sounds like a Chris Lowe title.

Agreed, I cringed when I first saw “Email” as a song title on Release. But I was pleasantly surprised by it. I think it’s sweet simple love song.

If you are going to write a song about things you don't like, it's a good start to use a expresion you don't like, for example "wanna".

Another smart point for PSB. :mrgreen:

Perhaps it is a cover of The Call, "I Don't Wanna", from the "Into The Woods" album, 1987!!

I had the same thing with Email, and as it turns out, the middle eight ("There may be other temptations in your live") is probably my favourite PSB-moment of all time.

At least Monkey business is a known expression and Will-o-the-Wisp is a "thing". I hope I don't wanna is a dig at people who write songs with that sort of title.

‘I don’t wanna’ is an update of ‘Do I Have To?’
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.

The last time there was a use of 'wanna' in a PSB song was Numb.

And it still grates on me.
you could say conventional ... and I could claim intentional

Will people find ‘wanna’ more acceptable if it turns out to be a Chris vocal?
