yeah Si, I think that is a real contender.
Funny thing singles. Us fans have the album so it doesnt really matter. Perhaps Graham prefers to put out his favourites as singles, or perhaps the record company pick the ones with more commercial appeal? Certainly the rockers with big riffs seem to go down the best (song2, freakin out).
I love 'You and I' and 'I Dont Wanna Go Out' but not sure of them as singles. People in radio land seem to only give songs 1 listen before forming an opinion. e.g. I Didnt like 'I Dont Wanna Go Out' at 1st, then half way through when it stops and starts again with that guitar flying around the speakers OMG! Very Happy

For what its worth I'd pick 'Skin' then 'Man' and close with 'Day'... until I change my mind anyway! Laughing

I could never chose between: Standing on my own again, Don't let your man know, and I don't wanna go out.. Confused

i did! i didn't say anything cos i was not sure i would have been able to get in...first, they said it was a competition- only gig, then mtv said it was actually a free entrance gig (and that has been lucky for me but it has been bad as far as the composition of the shitty crowd we had yesterday is concerned...speaking of which, i would just like to say to emi and managers, if you read this: crowds in milan are notoriously like that, pretty often!!! go play in other places as well...i understand that milan is caput mundi in italy in terms of promotion and all...but it's not the best place to find good crowds here. I normally don't enjoy the people i have around in milan. i didn't care much last night cos i had much much much fun but i was really sorry for the guys)

they made such a mess with this gig from day one....they said it would have been smth like...first,we let those who won the competition in, then we let other people in. then apparently, they even made a mess with the competition so we got the news that it would have been free entrance full stop, smth like that. what a bloody mess...i can't stand these things, i would have much preferred a normal gig, organised by the management. the place is not huge so i did go but i was not extrasure i would have made it...still, i said: well fine, haven't been in milan for such a long long time! plus, i saw kia again after a long time and took a break from everything for one day and a half.

I didn't take any pictures, i never do cos i am crap at doing it Embarassed
kia was supposed to but couldn't, her camera was too big apparently and they didn't let her take pics....

I would love to write a review but i am not good at doing it.... Embarassed

unfortunately yes....they jumped on the obvious stuff...when almost the entire set was like: come on people!! you don't want to jump? fine, i don't always always do that myself(i don't pogo i am scared of that, for example) and not cos i don't like the songs, you know that...it depends on the personality too in a way... but sing along, support, how can you not do that???? it's too involving!! apart from those reflective, intimate moments when you get those marvellous tracks, some of my very faves, like "just a state of mind" or "all over me" or "girl done gone", which gave me the thrills....it was too powerful a gig not to react!! too powerful in every sense...emotionally and sonically....i went mad during "i don't wanna go out", i knew it would have been tremendously strong. plus, didn't he change something in "all over me"? am i going mad? i thought it sounded enriched...very very nice.
they were not receptive, no...it also looked as if many of them were actually there mainly for dirty pretty things. By the way, i expected graham and carl to do something together, dunno why...i felt it...but it didn't happen. i do blame the milanese crowd in general cos they are a bit like that (and if they come here and kick my arse, i don't care cos this is true, with some due exceptions of course, as usual), but i mainly blame mtv...i think lots of people, proper fans too, got discouraged. i nearly did. up to sunday i didn't know whether or not i would have gone to milan. didn't know what to do.
