* MagnumOpus: Everybody has their favorite PSB album, so it's rather difficult to pin down to just one, though the most popular bets on this, [[http://www.geowayne.com/newDesign/surveys/2014.htm#week683 according to survey,]] are ''Behaviour'', ''Very'', ''Actually'', ''Introspective'', ''Electric'', ''Yes'' and ''Please''.

** ''Disco 2'' contained remixes of a rather low overall level of faithfulness to the original songs (of which "Liberation" took the biscuit by [[InNameOnly inserting completely new vocals ''after'' eliminating all that was left of the original track (vocals included)]]), segued and often length edited. It is often considered the worst album they ever released.

** The video for Kings Cross (the ''It Couldn't Happen Here'' clip [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9kRfIpuZIXE]], not the ''Projections'' montage) shows a man on fire, whereas the song itself talks about the (presumably figurative) "dead and wounded on either side" all around Kings Cross station. Two months later, there is a fire that kills 31 at the Kings Cross tube station.

** They mentioned Armani and Versace (the Italian designers) in their first version of "Paninaro" in 1986. When they re-released that song in 1995, the PSB decided to drop Versace (but keep Armani) from its lyrics, because they thought he didn't fit well with the meaning of the song. A couple of years later, Versace was killed.

A couple of years later, Versace was killed. Which sounds really creepy until you realise that it was only the 12" version (''Disco'', ''Please: Further Listening'') that mentioned him to start with (the original 7" version features on ''Alternative'').

** As far as the songs go, "If Love Were All", "I'm With Stupid", "Euroboy", "Sexy Northerner", "Try It (I'm In Love With A Married Man)", "The Truck Driver And His Mate", "The Night I Fell In Love", and everything in ''Closer to Heaven''.

Whereas "The Night I Fell In Love", Love" and everything in ''Closer to Heaven''.Heaven'' are more specifically homosexually themed.



* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The "Perfect Immaculate" remix of "Integral" (which drastically changed the style of music) was the version released as a digital single, in order to promote the remix album ''Disco 4''. This provoked this reaction from fans of the original version from the ''Fundamental'' album.

* [[AccidentalInnuendo]]: "Did you see me coming", "Love comes quickly". PSB mention in the ''Yes'' iTunes commentary that they were concerned that the title "Did you see me coming" might unintentionally come across as lewd.
