So glad they came to the rescue of a couple of gems that sung by others had gone unnoticed or sound awful.
Check out the super-cringe version of No More Tears: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KDlggPcTbPc


Oh wow. I'm sure it wasn't THAT version they heard when they decided they wanted to cover that song... or maybe it was and they thought "Why not? Can't make it any worse than that!"

Yay! :D Definitely one of their signature hits, so silver is the very least it deserves.

They have a couple of singles that are certified gold (Better Best Forgotten & Say You'll Be Mine/Better the Devil You Know) but neither actually sold over 400,000. It seems that their label overestimated the demand for both singles (certifications were based on shipments back then). By today's certification criteria (actual sales), both should only be silver. As of June 2009, BBF had sold 340,000 and SYBM/BTDYK only 271,000!

Tears has held up pretty well in the albums chart considering they only had a week of promo and that there have been several new releases and re entries in the top 30.

Hoping it's now at least gone silver !?

I think it has a pretty much guaranteed chance of going Gold with new singles and more promo. Platinum might be a bit optimistic? :confused:

That's great news, gold is 100,000? I think it could manage to sell that if they do a few appearances and singles.

Do we know what Scared Of Thr Dark finished on?

Tears on the Dancefloor has sold over 70,000 copies now. I really hope it manages Gold (100k+) with time - maybe it'll achieve this after the tour? It'd be a great result in this day and age, particularly with them being independent!

They've done so well, the album has spent 8 weeks in the chart, with a few more promo slots I think it may hang on a bit longer.

Shame they haven't had a chance to do some of the album tracks live yet or even some live videos for their YouTube account.

^ Yep, video is out TODAY!



Nothing spectacular, but I don't imagine they have the money for it either.
Anyway, does anyone give a f... about music videos today? I don't. But it's a nice video, I thought of the 'Here and Now'-video when I first saw it. :D

Kinda assumed there would be a story line for this video, but regardless they look great in it, love the outdoor shots, Lisa looks slightly awkward but that makes it somewhat more entertaining. Really like the photo thru used as the YouTube thumbnail.

Hopefully it gets the album climbing the charts again :)

Is she alright? :think:

I thought the video was cute. Nothing spectacular but Nice. The beginning reminds me of One For Sorrow. The dance number was kinda weird but I think that was more because they were dancing on grass. I do however agree Lisa been a bit awkward this era.
