  1. I remember thinking Hung Up sounded a bit plodding and dull based on the short clip without the ABBA sample in the Motorola advert. How wrong I turned out to be! Definitely a good idea to reserve judgement.

    Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    Yeah, it’s such a pity. Somebody needs to disable that slow-down-speed-up effect on her computer next time she edits her tour. Having said that, I couldn’t help but enjoy watching the DVD. It’s such an entertaining show.

    George Michael thread

    Isn't this available on 'The Hits Album 6' compilation from 1987, or is the mix you mention a different one? I have that CD and it also contains the 7" mix of La Isla Bonita.

    Rio 2016 Olympics

    The medal table is officially ranked by number of golds, then silver etc. Sometimes countries re-order the table based on total number of medals to make themselves look better, as China seems to have done now
  5. I think Yokohama is from a laserdisc, and it's my preferred recording. The sound is very clear and punchy, and her voice isn't all worn out like it was later in the tour.
  6. I don't think that man's behaviour is acceptable at all, but clearly he's not right in the head. And the fact that somebody filmed this incident and it became news tells you that it's not a common occurrence. I've lived here most of my life, and the only time I've ever seen anyone confronted on public transport for speaking a foreign language was when tourists from, let's say, a "louder" culture were making a racket on a train and someone politely told them to be quiet, so the noise level was the issue, not the fact that they weren't speaking English. It's just a case of different cultural norms. In the case of this video I think they were just unlucky to be sitting near a nutter.
  7. No excuse for racism of course, but I find Spanish tourists can be a little loud. Perhaps that's what sparked this off?

    I think this is my favourite BA performance

    That intro sounds so epic! Amazing performance.
  9. I'd love her to sing this again too! Although I'm not sure we'd be quite so delighted by the acoustic Macedonian tambura version we'd probably get

    Kate Bush

    Aerial is one of my favourites too. I love The Red Shoes as well. I was hoping a DVD of the live shows would be released soon but it seems there's no sign of it

    The band

    The lack of bass player is something I noticed too. I think the band just embellishes the backing tapes. Unapologetic Bitch, for example, just sounds like someone stuck the CD on. Are the drums real drums or just those electronic pads that are popular nowadays?
  12. I wonder if it's actually like a folder with all the album tracklistings in it?
  13. Yes, her voice was the perfect mix of strength and suppleness with pre-Evita grit. And yes, the "live" style of the tour video makes it look like it could have happened yesterday and you were really there, not like an artificial music video.
  14. Seeing the live version has made me appreciate this song a lot more.
