What have I done to deserve this? ‘20 w/Tracey Thorn.
I sincerely *love* Disco 2 and listen to it straight through regularly.

I really don't understand the liking for I don't wanna. I find it to be an incredibly dull, repetitive b-side about nothing much at all. Like In his imagination but worse.

I would say Happy people is definitely the best option for a fourth single. I expect it will coincide with Annually - there'll probably be a joint announcement very soon with a pre-order for Literally / CD single and the 12 inch.

As for a fifth? I'd be surprised. Although Electric and Super sort-of had five singles each, the singles from Hotspot have been much more 'traditional' singles with proper releases and formats being released simultaneously. If there were a fifth it may be just some kind of limited edition 12" remix or something. I could be wrong of course

To me, Happy People is much more repetitive than I Don't Wanna. Happy People is pretty much just that catchy riff repeated over and over with not much else except a bit of Neilrap whereas I Don't Wanna has a whole story along with the choruses. And In His Imagination is awesome.

I don't like Happy People and You're the one . Weakests tracks for the album for me.

I prefer Only the dark, I don't wanna or Will o the wisp

Unlikely, but would love an Andrew Dawson HappySad mix of Happy People.
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
