Will be interesting to see if it enter the U.K album chart next week, currently #8 in I-Tunes album chart, in a way8 hope it doesn’t, since I’m sure that’s not why it was released, and it would ruin their run of Top 10 albums entries.

I wonder if the decision to release this and Launderette to streaming and download is in part due to the exposure they've had recently with Its a sin.

On the cover of My Beautiful launderette I wish they had left one door open so it looked like it was yawning as a nod to Actually

Yeah, that's a missed opportunity.

But what a tune eh people? That Beautiful Laundrette instrumental.

Australians continue to surprise me. My Beatiful...is holding onto top 30 in charts (actually it is number 16 at the moment) and Discography was 38 (53 now). I thought PSB have dwindled into nothing there. They surprised me in the past as well when Absolutely Fabulous hit number 2 (Boys' biggest hit there, LOL) and on the heels of it, Bilingual was a top 3 album, probably the highest position globally (maybe after Israel- I am not sure but it was number 2).

Because it means just clicking a button and the playlist of PSB tracks I want to listen to starts playing, either in the order I put them, or on shuffle.

Also means that it registers as a stream against that track, so technically PSB would be getting money for something I've already paid for on CD, which they wouldn't get if I just played the CD or listened to a locally ripped mp3.

Don't need Spotify to achieve that. Can do it by tapping on my PC without any internet connection, I have easy access to my PSB library on my hard drive. And I don't need internet connection to do that.
