My first reaction was that I didn't even realize CD singles were still around ... but considering I did buy a bunch of U2 CD singles from NLOTH, I guess that's a lie.

I just don't ever see them in the stores, just for sale through Amazon and the like. Or as imports.

So no more physical U2 singles in the UK then. I assume this will hold true for Universal's other markets.

In Australia there is basically no stores that sell singles anymore anyway.

Our largest retailer stopped selling singles in the middle of last year.

I stopped buying Shuttlecock singles after ATYCLC; I think there was only one legit b-side (Are You Gonna Play Forever?) after that so there didn't seem to be a point.

I had pretty much all the HTDAAB ones. WITS was an awesome single.

Tori used to release better singles though, now all the shit ends up on the actual record

I don't have much to say about that because I have no clue where or when I bought that single but I just felt like 'cockifying it.


 
Cockhard, naturally.

I think it was actually changed to "Cock, Please". Which is kind of funny but probably could be improved.

Assuming it's a riff on 'cock tease,' why not just make it Tease?

Or is it more like Bitch, Please!
