Bookmarks: Some stuff to read on the internet - (brackets)

Does that make sense gives the deepest consideration of the bracket in popular song title since Jimmy Saville hung up his hologram:

Reason 3: It's a new version, honest!
This allows for remixes and second releases and so on to be duly credited as such, either with the basic word - (Remix), (Medley) (Re-Issue) - or something far more pretentious, such as I Believe (A Soulful Re-Recording), which was released with typical pomposity by Tears For Fears, even though the song bore no difference to the unbracketed version on the album.

The two versions of I Believe sound the same? Really?

Did he actually ever hear both versions?

Funny apart from that though.
