Comprising ten tracks in its original release, the album’s track-listing includes the duo’s debut single ‘West End girls’ – PSB’s first number one, certified Gold single. In 1987 it was awarded Best Single at the BRIT Awards, Best International Hit at the Ivor Novello Awards and later was awarded the Song Of The Decade Ivor Novello Award in 2005, chosen by the British Academy of Composers and Songwriters. It also reached number one in the USA. Singles ‘Love comes quickly’, Opportunities (Let's make lots of money)’ and ‘Suburbia’ also feature on ‘Please’, all of which went on to earn Top 20 status in the UK Singles Chart.
