Because “Analyse” has failed to reach the top 75 in the British single charts, “Analyse” will not be featured on the show “Top of the Pops”, which showcases live versions of songs in the top 75 positions. The performance was recorded several weeks ago. The song entered the charts at #89.
The cause of the poor performance may in part be due to one occurence. Fans in the UK felt cheated due to the cut of “In the Ghetto (live)” in the UK version and have thus opted to buy the 4-track mainland European release. “Analyse [was] released in the UK today, I didn’t buy it because we only get 3 tracks and I want to get hold of the 4 track,” said one disappointed British fan. Others ascribe the low position to the even more disappointing fact that the song is getting very little airplay on UK stations.
