Re: Monkey Business Official Video

It’s like Was it worth it?, but 30 years later, and #24 in the UK Singles Chart is an imperceptible dream.

Re: Hotspot reviews

Will-o-the-wisp is always a reference in all the reviews. Best song for this review too. Accordingly to the quality of these reviews, I start to think that reviewers listen only to the first track. My favourite case of this is Allmusic's review of a-ha's Memorial Beach. Not a perfect album for sure...

Re: Album closers / final track - do you have a favourite?

I love all of their closers, even Legacy seems to be not that bad after 10 (oh, almost 11) years.
My top 5 would be something like:

1. King's Cross
2. You choose
3. Jealousy
4. Into thin air
5. Why don't we live together?

And Go West gets honorable mention for being a song that got me into PSB.

Love the female vocal(s)
I think it’s Neil singing in high voice.

Re: The songs that could have been

This is the stuff I really love not only in PSB songs but in other artists’ works too.
The song I wanted to mention was Home and dry but minimal said it first.
Also Between two islands - I guess, it ends with a very sweet guitar solo which I loved to be lasted for minutes.

Re: Do you think the 2 first albums of the triology have any real contender of the PSB classics?.

I'm not a fan of Vocal, but seems like this song has a really deep meaning for Boys and most of their fandom.
From Super it's The dictator decides, Into thin air and probably Burn.

Re: Word paiting

"Driving through the night is so exciting" in I want a lover is supported by the tires screeching sound. The sound of smashing glass while "Break the window by the town hall" line in Suburbia. A similar sound effect in the first verse of A man could get arrested ("A wave of breaking bottles..."). I ...

Re: The PSB-Fancy-Bobby O-connection

Fancy (under the pseudonym Ringo) also covered Divine's "Shoot Your Shot" which was written by Bobby O.
I guess they just knew each other and were probably friends.

Re: New Album Cover..?

I like the cover, it looks like something The Cure did in the early 80s.
