All the boring stuff they play at every concert. Only two or three non hits songs will be interesting.

Of course it was a 'hit', you clod. Not a massive hit but it made the top twenty.
It wasn't a hit. Everybody knows that. A lovely song, everybody loves but a total flop taking into account PSB were still quite popular on that era.

And you should try to be educated. If you can't, you shouldn't get into this forum.

And it was a big radio hit.
You can have a lot of exporsure but general public people didn't like the song.

Everybody has an own taste. IMHO, their hits are their quite representative of their best work.

Have you been out on the streets doing a poll? And even if that was true, who the f*** cares? Jesus Christ, it's ridiculous.

It was the song with the lowest position in UK from the PSB career until that time.

Ultimately it sounds like this will be a singles set list, so they can select whichever singles they want even if they weren't strictly hits.

Hopefully they will play Being Boring, instead of Go West 😎

The idea of a Greatest Hits Tour was mine.

Maybe start a poll. It's been at least a week or so since the last one... :roll: :cry:

I don't want to feed you, the haters.

It's not true, I'd do it if I wanted to do it again.

It wasn't a hit. Everybody knows that. A lovely song, everybody loves but a total flop taking into account PSB were still quite popular on that era.

And you should try to be educated. If you can't, you shouldn't get into this forum.
Well, they played Being Boring on many tours and shows in the past, e.g. Discovery even ended with it, Somewhere at the Savoy, Nightlife Tour, BBC concert(s), Release Tour, Pandemonium, Glastonbury and quite a few others as well.

That's quite a bit for a "flop" that no one ever liked, isn't it? And even besides that, Being Boring is one of the most highly regarded and artistically impactful "hits" in their career. More so than a lot of others that followed. It would be a shame not to have it in a Greatest Hits setlist imo.

We are talking about two different things. a hit vs critical acclaim. There is not doubt about the second thing. About the first one, you only have to take a look at the charts.

You could say we are talking about the difference between a “greatest hits” tour and a “biggest hits” tour. They have already said they are playing songs that were hits and songs that sound like they should have been hits, so that’s a pretty broad definition which certainly gives them license to play Being boring, should they wish. It’s a great counterpoint to a barrage of anthems and a song which means a lot to many people, and not just hardcore fans.
Woof.
