Waking up to this devastating news this morning.

To quote “Decide”........”oh, what have we done?”

When did they last release an album on cassette? Nightlife?

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

I really think Happiness is the worst thing they've ever done. Country rednex techno. It's kind of beyond irritating. I bet Chris loves it! haha. Did we not have a poll in the past 12 months where 'The Night I Fell in Love' was the worst thing they did?! :P Never saw this poll but I’d absolutely 10...
