I do wonder what was intended for BHFTY - a single, maybe? - as I find it hard to believe that it was originally meant to be 'just' a b-side.
Almost 20 years ago now (eek!) but I seem to remember mutterings about it before the album was released, much like the way there were murmurings about Everything Will Be before the release of Lifeblood, yet neither made it on to the respective albums.

It's almost a curse for Nicky to mention that he loves a specific song before the release of the album, as it nearly always means it's a great song that's going to be thoughtlessly relegated to a b-side.

Then of course there's the traditional 'we love it and in retrospect we wish we'd put it on the album' post-release regret (cf: Prologue To History et al).

Though the rumours, or rather the NME stating, that it would be included on the album were not checked with the band according to an interview with the Wire who had never said any such thing and I found some old article where Ms Ellis-Bextor had said she'd believed it would be used as a b-side....and also that she wasn't first choice (Cerys and Sharleen Spiteri were the rumours but both already in a Duet with another at that time)

They could re-release as a dance track DJ Wireless ft SEB and put her voice on a loop Black Holes. Summer anthem

Ah ok, thanks for that raven. In my head I seemed to recall some unsubstantiated rumour of a minor falling out, but I didn't know if it was just speculation or I'd imagined it somehow. Maybe I'd read the NME thing you refer to at the time.

This one is completely random but.... A Manics and Daft Punk combination, anybody?

Hopefully not!

Would probably just sound like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NM2apsjNISM

Belated affirmation.
Because of the shame.

(No, because I forgot - about this weird "song", and this post - and I just searched for "Hans" on the forum, probably because I crave acknowledgement. O hai past.)

I want a collaboration with Yoko Kanno.
I believe something interesting would come out of this for sure. Also, wanna hear a duet with her as well. Or triplet.
