A blues would be in B flat, pain defining wisdom,
but the soul is in the high hat, programmed in the system.

Definately It's Alright (10" version)

For the rest the originals are pretty good too. There are some other remixes which I prefer over the already great 7" or album version (as I am a 12" fan) but the 10" version of It' Alright is the only version of this song I can actually listen to and enjoy.

We all feel better in the dark (after hours climax)
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.

I’m not sure I’ve ever gotten to the end of Disco 2 so I’m not sure I even knew this gem was there! The ONLY PSB album I never play.
If I thought what you’d think I wouldn’t even be here.

I'm usually not fond of remixes, but the Moby remix of Miserablism is something special. As a Moby track, not a PSB track. And the PSB Remix of Hello Spaceboy remains one of my favourite tracks.
