pretty good song. yeh?
I'd even go so far to say that first album is pretty good!
I hope you weren't being sarcastic, otherwise i've shown myself reeet up...!!
But to speak frankly I fucking loved that album!
is a superb album and I absolutely adore this band. If ever a song could ever take me back to a moment in time, this would one of them. A defining song of the Brit Pop era.
i love nearly everything they did.
The acoustic version is brilliant.
then sleep...is all you'll ever do.
This may be a cue for me to stick "This World and Body" on some time today. Quite simply one of the best British debut albums of the past 20 years. Glorious stuff...but hey, I even like The Program.
listened to the album this morning and its still brilliant. Vanessa is a high light for me.
and when the harmonica solo kicked in...I don't think I've ever grinned so much.
I juat about prefer Time though.
i fucking love - my fav used to be I stopped dancing. I remember when i was 15 i used to put that on and dance about like a moron - it was wicked!
Father's Day (one of the b-sides) is a great song too. I like the program too. They were great live as well.
I lent my sister the The World And Body to lend it to her mate for a day about five years ago - never got it back. It had great sentimental value for me :'(
for about three quid in any branch of Music and Video Exchange (or on Ebay). I'll probably need a replacement copy sometime soon anyway - it's dying from overplay.
I <3 it so much I wrote a user review on here about it. Nerrrrd.

was a single too?
and not on either album.
with the vinyl version of the first album.
WOW thankyou! themarionarchive = my afternoon sorted. i only knew it as a bside. cheersall!
Time is a fantastic song.
for stealing garden gnomes to feed his heroin addiction? I'm sure I read that somewhere...
i wish i'd caught their reunion shows last year. alas i wasnt in london yet and couldnt afford it :-(
is playing solo acoustic this thursday
but again i cant go cos i'm off on holiday early the next morning :-(
i was gonna go to that anyway for public service announcers and me my head.
When I was 16 it felt like every song they wrote was about me and my puberty.
My biggest regret is still never having seen them live - i got tickets for the kings college show last year but got poopy on the day so couldn't go and I got band pracky on Thursday so can't go to the Metro.
All For Love is a ball-bouncer.
did it ever come out?
i remember a single and getting quite excited but that turned out to be not so good
Miyako Hideaway. did not get promoted properly or promoted at all, really, so I had to hunt for a copy when it came out.
single - should have got much more attention. Didn't Johnny Marr produce it? Or did i just make that up?... hmmmm. I was very excited about it at the time.
Ooo and thank you for reminding me about 'Violent men'!
and he plays on a couple of tracks. Fact. There's a *lot* of good stuff on The Program, it's a real shame that album got buried.
Another reason why Marion were the dogs boll**ks.
Not sure if ti counts as a song cos it is just one line all the way thru really
fuck they absolutely killed with that song live. I was kinda friends with the band and saw them dozens of times.
I might even go on thursday, y'know.
me and my equally underage mates would hang around at The George Hotel in Macclesfield and get hammered on cheap white wine with Jaime Harding when we should've been at sixth form. He was a bit of a has-been then but seems to be all cleaned up and working hard on the music again now, which is good. He started going out with my mate's younger sister for a while, so everyone in Macc thought he was a bit of a creepy paedo, but he used to watch every shitty Green Day rip-off and give serious advice on every gig. The guy's ace.
Macc for a few months but i'm not entirely sure i'd say he's 'completely' cleaned up.
Great band, although i was still a bit young to fully appreciate them in their hayday. They certainly still had it at the reunion show @Club Academy last year.
