Here's a question - which version do people prefer? The 1990/2018 version or the 2001 edit? :wink:
How is the 2001 edit different?

What was the original track listing for Behaviour:
Miserablism instead of The end of the world ?

The 2001 remaster has the track starting after the segue from Nervously. The 2018 remaster corrects the mistake. I must admit that for compilation purposes the 2001 version was better as it just goes bang straight into it.

The 2001 version always bugged me, never got the 2018 version. Can't remember...what was the original CD pressing like?

Same as 2018 but just not remastered (and quieter)

Hey, didn't they play it live a couple of times on the Discovery tour. I've been searching for an audio of that for 25 years.

Absolutely one of my favourite songs of all time. When I learnt to play the piano, it was the first song I started with from the Behaviour book. Just glorious!

According to setlist.fm they played To face the truth in the acousting section with Rent and Suburbia.
A blues would be in B flat, pain defining wisdom,
but the soul is in the high hat, programmed in the system.

I’m passionate about this track as well! It’s one of the classic PSB examples of an uplifting production/arrangement with bittersweet lyrics and delivery. I, too, hope they do it live someday!!

I'm still waiting for the B-sides tour. No slow/mid-tempo songs allowed. Just bangers/uptempo.

Here's the setlist. You're welcome :lol:

We All Feel Better In The Dark
Music For Boys
A Cloud In A Box
Decide
The Resurrectionist
Bet She's Not Your Girlfriend
Don Juan
I Get Excited
You Get Excited To
Too Many People
Euroboy
The Boy Who Couldn't Keep His Clothes On
Screaming
Transparent
I Didn't Get Where I Am Today
We're All Criminals Now
Some Speculation
One Hit Wonder
Get It Online

Let's face it, many fans would love it, but the general public might not be too impressed!
