British Sea Power


does anyone else dislike "Please Stand Up"? After living with the album for a while, I've really come to enjoy it--with the exception of "Please Stand Up." In fact, it's literally the one and only BSP song I dislike. It simply feels far too generic and by-the-numbers, which is particularly disappointing in a band of BSP's caliber.

I think you've actually hit upon why it's going to be the single because its a by the numbers song that will hopefully get them further up the charts. I know with another band, Idlewild, I've always hated their best selling singles. I don't feel that strongly towards PSU but its not my fave song off Open Season.

yeah, even though I'm not fond of it, if it gets any radio airplay in the states I can see it, and BSP, becoming rather popular. I still believe at least half of the songs on Open Season would make more suitable single material.

i'm not too keen, also dislike "to get to sleep" but the latter has more charm in small doses. the rest of open season i love.
