Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

Any word about the producer of At Rock Bottom? Is it (hopefully) another album session leftover, like An Open Mind and Decide were?

Re: Show your love for “Hoping for a Miracle”

Could be miles off, could be correct.

My ears say the vocoder lyrics are "Stop me from getting better."

My two cents.

Re: Your favourite Hotspot Instrumental?

Dreamland, because it's probably the only one I like more than the vocal version.

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Hoping For A Miracle and An Open Mind hooks have very similar instrumentation, don't they?

Re: Show your love for “Hoping for a Miracle”

A beautiful mid-tempo ballad and the main hook is just..wow! Among my favourites on Hotspot for sure, my favourite of all the slower ones.

Delighted and relieved - the Prins Thomas Diskomiks makes this a modern classic.

Effen's extra verse is real. It is not Fake News.
There are plenty of new lyrics in that Prins Thomas Diskomiks - how will they fit all that into only a 40 second longer version?

Re: Have Radio 2 played the full version of Monkey Business? Maybe not but...

It's not the album version, if Effen Vida is to be trusted, there's still an additional verse we haven't heard. Hanging from the rafters, I’m a chimpanzee, What I do for afters, You’ll have to wait and see! Haha!! Can you imagine if those *were* the real lyrics?!! :D Christ, I always thought I coul...

F**k, the album version sounds even worse than the radio edit.
You have the album? Oh, do tell. :mrgreen:

Re: Have Radio 2 played the full version of Monkey Business? Maybe not but...

What are you on about? It starts at 1:06:00 and finishes right about 1:09:10, so it's the radio edit we all know and (don't really) love. :D

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

Gave it a break yesterday, and upon repeated listenings today I find it flowing a lot better than I remember.. still, I feel it's too short and doesn't really go anywhere, so I really hope the album edit will sort that out.

So this is a part of the lyrics that isn't included in this radio edit - oh, how I hate when radio edits cut essential parts of the song (verses source: Effen's review of Hotspot).

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

Pretty bland if you ask me, Groovy did it (the stupid but catchy thing) far better.

Burning The Heather / Decide is by far the best single combo we got so far.

Re: New/third single

Are you listening to the full version somewhere, or are all these comments/opinions about the 30 sec snippet? If anyone finds a Deezer link, let me know!
