Songs performed live most often by PSB

As best I can determine—but with a fairly high degree of certainty—in order of frequency of performance, and not at all surprising:

  1. West End Girls
  2. It's a Sin
  3. Always on My Mind
  4. Go West
  5. Domino Dancing

Once we get past the Top 5, the list becomes a little less certain and holds perhaps one or two surprises (at least for me), particularly #7:

  1. Left to My Own Devices
  2. Se A Vida É (That's the Way Life Is)
  3. Being Boring
  4. Rent

Finally, there's an "approximate tie" for the #10 spot—"approximate" because it's virtually impossible to be absolutely sure about every single live performance:

  1. Opportunities (Let's Make Lots of Money)
  2. Suburbia

Probably my biggest surprise of all, however, comes from a song that did not make this list. It's "Heart," which the Boys have only rarely performed live (comparatively speaking) despite the fact that it was a #1 single in the U.K. After all, their other three U.K. #1 singles—"West End Girls," "It's a Sin," and "Always on My Mind"—make up the Top 3 in this list. So this raises a fascinating question – Why haven't they performed "Heart" live more often? Is it only because, unlike those other three, it was not a hit in the United States (although it was a major hit in a number of other countries)? I suppose only Neil and Chris could provide the answer, but so far I'm not aware of their ever having addressed this subject.
