People (fans) on Facebook are trying to make it into the charts by buying the single at the same time (during the same week). I'll keep you posted but it seems that the time is NEXT WEEK...
Anyway I couldn't wait so I got it today from iTunes, and I'll get it again next week to add up to the figure!  ;)

Am I the only one that thinks it's a bit... blah after a few listens?

Title: Re: a man with nothing to do

I like it a lot though I kind of agree... I think there are other songs in the album much more "powerful" to release as a first single!

Downloaded the song this morning from I-Tunes and listened to it several times. I have to be honest: a good song (maybe too "pop", in my opinion, too... "charts-oriented)) but definitely not a great song. I prefer "You will always walk alone" and the other songs on myspace and facebook.

Roll to me is "poppy" too and it was a hit. :-)

Someone wrote on facebook about A man with nothing to do that it is "such a beautiful little song".......... I agree.

You'll always walk alone is my favorite.

No, actually.  Though I hate to say it.

He's written better. His taste in first singles is nothing short of shameful.

I got it through Play cos weirdly Amazon UK doesn't seem to have it.

I'm trying to suss the lyrics after the line 'the devil is rolling up his sleeve' (which I want to say sleeves!!...) but anyway...
then it goes 'is God so busy in his time that I'm doing nothing too' - that doesn't make sense to me though.  Is that what he sings?

It's got so busy in this time  :)
that I'm doing nothing too

Title: Re: a man with nothing to do
Post by Ginny on 04/10/10 at 12:39:33
No,that's wrong too!

It sounds more like

Is God so busy in his time,now doing nothing too.....

I think  :-?

It's hard to hear it properly but it def sounds like 'is God so busy in his time' - it's just the next line that doesn't seem to fit.

Thanks Belinda for that link but there are a couple of other words on it that are different from what I've got..

'so I am passing time...'
and
'you can feel it too' (instead of see the truth).

We need Justy to put them up on MySpace like he used to before!  :)

Does anyone know if the single is being released on cd? I have dowloaded from play but would like some b-sides if there is a cd coming out.

Title: Re: a man with nothing to do
Post by Cristina on 04/18/10 at 06:54:55
I'm also waiting for that, Steve! The official release date is the 26th of April, so I guess that it'll be available on CD then...
Also read that the plans from fans to have multiple downloads to make the single enter the charts will be made on that week! I'll keep you posted!

Title: Re: a man with nothing to do

Cool, thanks Cristina. I'm really looking forward to the album as well. Gonna be a good couple of months with the new Crowded House album coming out soon as well.

Hi all!
Here you have some links where you can buy the digital single... People on Facebook keep with the campaign to have the song on the charts by doing multiple downloads this week. So let's try!!!!

Maybe. I love it. I think that it's a great way to start off the album, and it makes "The Great War" a bit more of a Dels album in spirit. I love "What Is Love For?", but it's more of a darker soul type of moody album. This one has more singles/ upbeat songs (ie: "At Home Inside Of Me", "Can't Let Go Of Her Now", etc) and I think that "A Man With Nothing To Do" kicks off the album and  announces that at least some of it will be a sunshinier album. Given that context, it works great. Had it kicked off WILF, I think that it would have been out of place.

In My Heart, The War Goes On kicks its arse as an opener. Fact.
