In this house, it's always time for PSB - one of the few groups we can all agree on. This is a 18 track compilation of their singles released 1985-1991. It gets a lot of playing time 'round here.
Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: #111
Tracks: I don't skip any of these tracks. Hands down, my favorite PSB song is Left To My Own Devices. In a close race for second place are West End Girls, Suburbia, and What Have I Done To Deserve This, followed by So Hard and Where The Streets Have No Name (I Can't Take My Eyes Off You). Chart positions follow:
|West End Girls||1||1|
|Love Comes Quickly||62||19|
|Opportunities (Let's Make Lots of Money)||10||11|
|It's a Sin||9||1|
|What Have I Done To Deserve This?||2||2|
|Always on My Mind||4||1|
|Left To My Own Devices||84||4|
|Where The Streets Have No Name||72||4|
|Was It Worth It?||24|
Personal Memory Associated with this CD: This CD was a gift to me from my late friend Scott, so it's very special to me.
A few weeks ago, rain forced my son to stay inside, so he passed the time by playing a video game upstairs while I was elsewhere in the house. Suddenly, I hear him excitedly yelling, "PSB ON GTA!!!" I walked upstairs to check it out and, sure enough, we were listening to West End Girls while he drove over people on the sidewalk.
Now that I've heard Left To My Own Devices this morning, I will probably listen to it at least 5 more times today.

This album is currently unavailable on Spotify, but a later compilation, Pop Art (2003), contains all but one of these tracks.
