WELL, AT LEAST THEY DID HAVE THE BALLS TO INCLUDE U16 GIRLS: It might be seen as a little early in their career for anyone to be offering a Travis singles collection but that's not going to stop them. They are putting all the singles on it, though - including the one about getting off with underage girls. I know what you're thinking - shouldn't there be an unreleased track on there, so they can have a single off the album even although it's all meant to be singles already? And, lo, there is: Walking in the Sun.

We do fully respect them for including Tied to the 90s, as well, which was such a poorly written piece we're surprised they don't try and pretend that it must have been a Mansun track:

We're tied to the 90's
In the middle
I'm terribly frightened
I'm taking it fast
Taking it slow
There's thunder and lightning
It's terribly frightening
Lord knows
Where it goes
But I know
That if so
Well I want to tell you
We're tired of the 90's
We're tired of the 90's
But we're tied to the 90's
Tied to the 90's

Remember the 80's
(They were something)
Were worse than the 90's
We're stuck in a path
Where fashion is fast
And nothing is lasting
It's all ghetto blasting
And Lord knows
Where it goes
But I know
That if so well I want to tell you
We're tired of the 90's
We're tired of the 90's
But we're tied to the 90's
Tied to the 90's

Ah oh no it's nothing to go
On the hi-fi five alive
That's it
I'm staying in bed
Till my hair falls out
Everything's over
That said
I like my wig and I hate myself
I know it's all in my head

We're tired of the 90's
We're tired of the 90's
We're tired of the 90's
But we're tied to the 90's
Oh, we're tied to the 90's
We're tied to the 90's
We're tied to the nines
Tied to the nines
Tied to the 90's


... talking, as we were earlier, of shit lyrics. We're not sure when we'd have abandoned this song if we'd written it - we hope at the stage of "how about writing a song about how we're stuck in the 1990s; railing against the calendar is always a good idea", but certainly before the band meeting where we were reading out the lyrics about "nothing is lasting/it's all ghetto blasting."
