Re: Greatest PSB hits according to YouTube

By the way, Actually is very popular in Nepal (number one for a few days and top three for a few weeks). There must be a reason for it. Maybe Buddha priests blessed it publicly?

Re: Greatest PSB hits according to YouTube

Interesting that the song which was the end of imperial phase, is the third most viewed video. Also it was only a 3 pointer on Pointless yesterday https://i.ibb.co/RDgGKNq/db.jpg Nickname is right. It is extremely popular in Latin Countries because of both the video and Latin sound and Latin countr...

Re: Who PSB haven't collaborated with

I guess Tiesto or Calvin Harris is too popular on their own to work with them; I believe their image is strongly built on high charting fluffly pop songs backed up with hi-energy videos soaked up with sexy young boys and girls and they mostly work with teenage idols. PSB are too old and too leftfiel...

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

Of course it was a 'hit', you clod. Not a massive hit but it made the top twenty. And it was a big radio hit. You can have a lot of exporsure but general public people didn't like the song. Wasn't there a web site dedicated to Being Boring and that lasted hundreds of pages? Is it still online? For ...

Re: "My beautiful laundrette" and "Cricket wife" available on streaming

Australians continue to surprise me. My Beatiful...is holding onto top 30 in charts (actually it is number 16 at the moment) and Discography was 38 (53 now). I thought PSB have dwindled into nothing there. They surprised me in the past as well when Absolutely Fabulous hit number 2 (Boys' biggest hit...

Has the commercial been discontinued? Within one week, Opportunities spiralled down in the chart very fast.

Re: Their saddest songs

It Couldn't Happen Here. Nothing beats it when I want to torment myself psychologically. I sometimes turn it off at half because I am sure I will start to cry as the orchestral sounds soar. I hate crying. ----- Another one on par is Discoteca. "I don't speak in anger Though the chances that I'v...

Re: It’s A Sin - Years & Years cover

The first listen: The show is amazing. Performances are very good...but the version...it sounded it lacked the acidic bite and crystal-clear sharpness of the original. Not a big fan of it (at the moment).

Re: It’s A Sin - Years & Years cover

Elton John & Years and Years version is number 1.
Years and Years version is number 46.
PSB version is 52

Shouldn't it be the reverse? :)

Discography at 48.

This year the Boys probably sold more albums and singles than the last ten years in total.

Please is number one in Antigua and Barbuda of all places, lol. Unfortunately, they have a population of 97,000 people merely, so two copies sold probably propelled them to number one :D Last week Very was number one in Israel for a few days. If only they could hit the top spot in a very crowded mar...

Greetings, Why close it? The diversity of topics and participation in the forum are rather stagnant and this is a clever piece of imagination.

Latin America countries love New York city boy more than us so it is not that surprising; they are so crowded :D
