Nope, it is still on every hour.

I think it just reached a certain saturation point. It has been overplayed.

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? :) Their version was No. 1 when it really counted. It is rather amazing that 35 year old song is topping the charts. That has only happened a handful of times, ...

Re: It’s A Sin - Years & Years cover

It would have been nice to the Boys on the Brits. But haven't they performed the song twice already for the Brits over the years, including the historic collaboration with Brandon Flowers and Her Grace, the Duchess of GaGa? It does say something quite special that a song can be performed at an award...

Re: Their saddest songs

Regret is a form of sadness.

The Way It Used To Be.

The King of Rome is also wistfully sad. It has the perfect title if one knows Napoleonic History.

Re: Neil and Chris - Alcohol

There's a lot of drinking on their early tours. Just because it's champagne and white wine doesn't make it different. Chris talks in the Discovery DVD booklet about drinking alcohol during the concert, not just before or after. And they take strong sedatives/sleeping pills on transcontinental fligh...

They're not alcoholics. They're just English.

Splendid!

I was a toddler during the Imperial Phase.

This must be a (very) small measure of the excitement of those days, seeing a single climb the charts to the top.

Re: Greatest PSB hits according to YouTube

Many of the post-Very videos through to Yes were not available to see in the US until only a few years ago.

Re: #PSBWatch Opportunities in US TV commerical

When I was younger kid, and in my teens, the 60s were chronologically much closer to us in the 80s and 90s, than the 80s are to us now. But it seemed like a completely different era. Much of the media was in black and white, the fashions were completely different and there were no computers, no cel...
