Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR: set list speculation. Which songs are PSB going to play?

Everything they have said about the tour is contradictory. They say they have never done a "Greatest Hits" tour. That is only true if you a purist about the term, i.e. only the actual greatest hits, no exceptions, no promoting non-hits from the latest album. But they have said there WILL b...

Re: Poll ends soon on ranking the first five PSB studio albums

Please seems to have ended up the whipping boy in this poll. Personally these days I find it almost too close to call between Please, Actually and Behaviour as their greatest album, though I always vote for Behaviour out of long-standing habit.

Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

I think it's overstated how song lyrics don't work on the page. It's true that they flow better when you know the tune, but even if you don't know the tune, as long as you know that it is a lyric it's easy to make the adjustment of expectation that it's not necessarily going to have a regular poetic...

I was there and loved it ( wasn't sure about "Positive role model" which was new to me but trusted it would grow on me. I was a fan of Cerys so I was pleased to see her too) but in retrospect it seems very strange how they were just another band somewhere on the bill politely received, wh...

Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

I am looking forward to this. I hope the selection is a little daring as PSB's biggest hits are not necessarily their most interesting. I'd rather read the lyrics (and commentary) of Jack The Lad or DJ Culture that those of Heart or It's A Sin , for example. "It's a sin" isn't interesting?

Re: Why do people hate “Before”?

Apart from what's been mentioned, the enjambement of the lyrics doesn't work. Here's what the lyric sheet says: "so many tears will fall before you find your love before it comes knocking at your door" but this is what we hear: "so many tears will fall before. "You find your love...
