Will-o the wisp and hoping for a miracle instrumentals are epic. I like Only the dark as well, it will help me appreciate more the song. Neil's voice is strong on hotspot.

Love the will o the wisp instrumental, but a shout has to go to wedding in berlin instrumental without those cringing lyrics.
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.

Is there anywhere legal to listen to the instrumentals without using an actual CD player?

I love the instrumentals of Hoping for a miracle, Only the dark and Burning the Heather. Besides, I like the instrumentals of Will-o-the-wisp and especially Wedding in Berlin more than the normal versions of the songs.

No (though surely you can rip your CD into files and play them).
I'm so thankful I don't have to use a turntable, like it was with Yes!

95% (probably more) of songs are written from a straight point of view. I can't imagine as a gay person not being able to relate to them because of that. Why would the other way around be different for someone?

Will-o-the-wisp indeed because it's a great track but the lyrics are not appealing to a 100% straight person. I in fact have replaced Will-o-the-wisp, Dreamland and Wedding in Berlin with their instrumentals in my Hotspot playlist.

Why Dreamland? Is it because there are two gay singers? The lyrics don’t seem particularly offensive to homophobes.

Out of interest, which other PSB tracks have you censored in the past? How have you done it when there were no instrumentals?

I imagine that you also have issues with the Introspective cover. Perhaps you could replace that with a massive pair of bosoms - there’s probably a suitable Motley Crue sleeve you could use.

To be honest, the only song that could apply to me in the PSB canon is I don't wanna.

Greetings,

I can't vote in this yet, as I'm still waiting for my CD to make the intrepid journey from Digital Stores to Melbourne, Australia.

That said, it is disappointing to see someone's personal preferences derided as homophobia. No one is entitled to force everyone else to like all possible combinations of everything... this isn't an Erasure forum. As such, a bit of respect for autonomy would be nice.

Retro. :)
