INTEGRAL!

The original version, not that pointless remix they shoved out on a whim

How Can You Expect To Be Taken Seriously was a single (double a-side with Where The Streets Have No Name).

I'd say the following should have been singles :-

One And One Make Five
It Always Comes As A Surprise
Kings Cross
The Way It Used To Be
More Than A Dream
Fugitive
Footsteps

One Thing Leads To Another
Tonight Is Forever
Saturday Night Forever
Jack The Lad

And I know it was shoved onto Behaviour at the last minute because they thought they needed one more uptempo track, but I have a real soft spot for The End Of The World.

Love how everyone is saying 'King's Cross', it's the song that immediately came to mind when I saw the thread title!

Shameless !!!!

That's got hit written all over it IMO. And with the world we live in these days full of wannabes I reckon they should re-record it and release it as an A side

Miserablism would have made a great single. I was tempted to say Always too but I found it a bit of a grower, so I thought maybe not such a great choice (still a great track though).
Talking of growers...the cover of The Truck Driver and His Mate promo.

I think the diversity of replies here shows how strong the PSB back catalogue really is.

I have only seen them live twice and they were just brilliant

The end of the world - Beeb has used it tons as background music in the past.
The Boy Who Couldnt keep His Clothes On
Young offender
Metamorphosis
Shopping
Only The wind ("im sorry..")
Tonight is Forever (Liza version)
The Theatre
I want you now (Liza)

I think that Very was almost designed to be like a singles album, every track could be a chart entry.

Supremely underrated songwriters. Appreciated these days more by industry people 'in-the-know' (sure they've won some novellos?). Hard to remember these days, that they rode the crest of modern music in the latter half of the 80's/early 90's. They've actually had a pretty good chart run.
