Was probably all they could find in the dumpster of 80's records round the back of the building! :lol:

I could have sent them a decent snapshot of one of my copies, although to be fair, the first copy of this I picked up had an equally crappy looking sleeve. Maybe the Boys couldn't afford decent paper for their records back then?

Opportunities is in a fight with a whole slew of Daft Punk songs on the iTunes Dance Chart, but it is holding at #2.

Opportunities is back to top 30 in US iTunes charts (29 at the moment). It was sliding down to 62 or something like that and it jumped back again. I know some of you find charts meaningless but I feel excited. They have been in top 50 for nearly three weeks and 29 is quite a high number, isn't it? Maybe a top 20? Maybe top 10? Dreams are forever and never ending (sounds like a Modern Talking lyric, bırrr, hate myself)

Please was catapulted to number 486 (it was sailing around top 1100) and Popart at 542. Canada is also doing well, Discography having jumped to 81.

I want to kiss and hug the staff member from AllState (or their advertising agency) who first thought about Opportunities. :D

Maybe they should get their songs used for commercials more often.
Here are PSB's most downloaded on Amazon US.
