Most Forgettable PSB Song

#1 Post by York Minster » Tue 26 Mar 2019, 3:57 am

What's the song that just slips on by? Not bad, but not very good either. Kind of non-descript. You remember they did it 6 years after you last listened to it, listen once and then another 6 go by. A song with no consequence. It's probably not Left To My Own Devices.

Pick up to three.
And tryin' to figure out what happened to 'Germaine Propaine'
"He couldn't have fell off that hard" Ain't no way
"What happened to the way you was rappin' when you was scandalous
That Canibus turned into a television evangelist"
Plus he raps with his regular voice [BOOSH! BOOSH!]
[BOOSH! BOOSH!] (What was that?) Pet Shop Boys

The lost room. Even the boys have forgotten about it.

Wiedersehen
The white dress
Blue on blue
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.

Does anyone remember Inside? Or was it so forgettable you forgot it?

For some reason everytime I hear "Playground bullies taunt and cheat" the next line in my head is "a sensitive soul who's a role model". Must be the same chords or something.

Forgettable vs. just ‘bad’ is an interesting distinction.

For me, just sticking to album tracks, here are some songs I almost forget exist, even if I don’t actively dislike them:

Twentieth Century
Here (which I always forget the name of too, as it should be called ‘Home’ obviously, and would have been were it not for Home and Dry on the same album)
Vulnerable
One and one makes five
Love comes quickly, but is a catastrophe and a bourgeois construct etc.
