Great song very provocative with a double entendre "we make it so Hard".. :angel:
They make a little go along way.. very Minimal but Fundamental.

Jesus! That was the first proper single I bought, which I also happened to buy on the day of release. I suppose today is some sort of anniversary for me :o
My how time flies :)

Well, it was among the most anticipated "singles" of 1990 after the heightened expectations thanks to Introspective.
The CELL by Stephen King instantly hit number 1 in New York Times Bookseller Lists selling well over 200 thousand copies in three weeks. This affirms my opinion: People really need an occassional good horror read...

With all due respect :

Chris is Sadly Mistaken. :eh:

SH is a clever little gem of a song. It's Intimate, Universal, Gossipy, Honest, Funny, Serious, Cynical & Sincere.

All at once.

I like it here ~~ wherever it is ...

Christ, it seems like yesterday and I was still more than a year away from finishing school! Half my lifetime ago!

I was so dissapointed that it was stuck at #4 :cry: Isnt it PSB's last self-penned UK Top 5 ??
I was born in a hospital room with green walls, the doctor who delivered me wore a green overall, so did the nurses hovering around. So much greenery around, its no wonder that it is my favourite colour !

And it was made with analogue synths! A sign of things to come?

One of my sorrows in life is never to have heard So Hard live. What Chris has against that record is beyond me. Production-wise it was lightyears ahead of it's time, the verses and the middle eight are dead clever and the chorus is one ofe the strongest, simplest and most gorgeous choruses ever....
