You're Not Supposed To[edit]

The album opener, "You're Not Supposed To", was later released as a single with a video depicting the band performing in a Northern England pub as the patrons form a large conga line and some join in playing instruments with the band. The single features a typographical cover similar to that of the album, but with larger text displaying the lyrics to the song rather than information on the band's history.

  2. "You're Not Supposed To" (The Matinee Orchestra Remix) – 3:26
