Random Manics thoughts...

Do you sometimes have an idea that doesn't fit to any of the threads or you think it's silly to dig out one of the old ones? pointless to create a new one? or are you confused and don't know whether to write this either in Manics discussion or in Random Thoughts?
it doesn't have to be controversial, just a thought you'd like to share!

I'll start!

Reasons why Autumnsong is a bad song:
- 90% of the lyrics
- over-produced
- there's no Nicky (or other band members) in the video


EDIT
Please, move it to MSP Discussion general board.

Greatest Hits tour is a good idea only if the setlist includes songs like Richard Nixon, Empty Souls, solo singles and stuff ommited on FD, LIKE STAY BEAUTIFUL FFS!!!

Cos he looks like Phil and you don't mess with Phil, get on the right side of him and he'll be your friend for life, get on the wrong side of him and ...well...he'll run you over.

This is a good idea! I had a thought the other day which I didn't think fitted into any of the threads which this would have been perfect for. Unfortunately, I've now forgotten it. Never mind.

I think that when they play Kevin Carter live Sean should actually play trumpet, it'd be great

in the past there were petitions signed in the queues before the gigs to make Sean to play on trumpet.

Still find it hilarious that my dad didn't know who Nicky Wire is, even after the amount I go on about him, yet he knew who Simon Price was and thought Simon Price was the Manics' bassist!

Also, really wish I hadn't lent my mum my copy of The Holy Bible. Thought she wouldn't like it but lent it to her anyway because she asked and now she's listening to it on repeat on her iPod and singing a long to Faster and Revol at the top of her voice and very out of tune...
