Re: "Annually 2019"

Hopefully there will be no more stuff about the Super tour!

And hopefully no preaching about Brexit.

Re: Dricography: Ranking Behaviour

I was just always underwhelmed by DJ culture - I love the Grid remix , but the 7" was just sort of too compressed and sort of messy. Not sure why it never stuck for me. It might be the vocal. Neil sounds a bit bored, and it's too wordy. I think. The extended mix is certainly far better.

Re: Classic Pop Magazine - November 2018

I was very chuffed to find Hague has liked my Facebook update announcing the sequel novel to the Life Assistance Agency - Unfinished Business.

Top bloke, and I had forgotten he produced Banderas This is Your Life wchih also features Johnny Marr and Bernard Sumner.

Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

I'm unsure what you can say about a book of lyrics we already know by heart.

It's nice item, and I ordered a signed one at a reasonable price from a site someone kindly posted link to on here. But I"m not exactly running down to the postman every morning.

Re: Dricography: Ranking Nightlife

I hate to say it but you clearly think that Tall Thin Men is good too ;-) :shock: …wink:

I've tried to like Happiness Is An Option , but it's just a bit crap. But at least it has more character than The Only One

Good use of poppycock though - that would be a good PSB album title

Re: Dricography: Ranking Nightlife

A classic case of poor song selection Including For all of us and The ghost of myself alone would have improved it - and dropped the droopy Footsteps and serious piss-poor anodyne shadow of a tune The Only One. It's the only abysmal song in their catalogue. It kind of mopes along like it's heavily a...

Re: Dricography: Ranking Very

The great lost single here is Young Offender - it would have been far better than Yesterday, when i was mad. That jarred at the time and it still does. I suspect they were rather pleased with it at the time, but it's the weakest track here Lyrically Young Offender would have perfectly captured the z...

Re: Classic Pop magazine

and it's a rehash of the special, which was also rather disappointing and bland.

Re: the most embarassing PSb song is...

I actually really like the music to Groovy, It's bloody good, but yes, the lyrics are pretty atrocious.

I like Pazzo! It's New Order's Tutti Frutti part 2

Re: the most embarassing PSb song is...

Well, after the Bilingual remaster then definitely not Metamorphosis - it's amazing, although perhaps not cool!

Footsteps is abysmal, as is the Only One

Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

Re: Reissues project

I also bought Very, Nightlife, Bilingual and Fundamental on vinyl because I did not own them. And it was too pricey to buy on discogs, etc .
