Not surprised to see Yes representing quite well, even if the forum might favour the later dance-mix-focused stuff.

Many of the post-Very videos through to Yes were not available to see in the US until only a few years ago.

May explain some of the numbers.

I think it's the most famous track in PSB career with West End Girls, even more famous than It's a Sin and the rest of their songs.
Heart video was without music (I mean the sound was muted) for at least two or three years. Parlophone was a little bit sloppy when it came to PSB videos.

Latin America countries love New York city boy more than us so it is not that surprising; they are so crowded :D

Must admit the Trevor Horn concert version is possibly the greatest live performance i have ever seen, no wonder it gets more views.

Concrete was amazing for solidifying some songs. Integral did well too.

True. I like the Concrete version of Nothing Has Been Proved more than any other version. Both the demo and the Highlights -versions were a bit.. thin.

True. It's not a perfectly fair comparison since not all the videos have been available for the same amount of time in every country. The official video of It's A Sin was not available in the US for a long time. Instead, they had the live version from Cubism as the official video until a couple of years ago. The official video of It's a sin just passed 100 million views and would probably have more views than West End girls if it had been available here from the same year.

Given that Rent would be at number 14 with its 6,4 million views, a GH including from West End Girls up to Leaving would make a nice tracklist.

I guess that videos from Yes era were benefited from being on Youtube since day one, unlike Fundamental era.

Nickname is right. It is extremely popular in Latin Countries because of both the video and Latin sound and Latin countries are very crowded :lol: I don't know why but Latinos also love New York City Boy and the number of its views is higher than the total views of all Opportunities videos even after the commercial.

By the way, Actually is very popular in Nepal (number one for a few days and top three for a few weeks). There must be a reason for it. Maybe Buddha priests blessed it publicly?

It looks like It's A Sin now has more views on YouTube than West End Girls.
