None of them

AFAIK, the American and European music scenes had become quite different by the early 1990s, so I don't think PSB would have fared well after Domino Dancing anyway.

If anything, the U2/Frankie Valli mash-up would have been the final coffin anyway.

I agree. Most of the songs are either too gay, ironic, left wing or English to have been US hits. Jealousy is probably the least of these, so to have a vote that was my choice.

Mostly agree, but I can see Se A Vida E doing well in the right circumstances. A summer release, pretty video, optimistic message, Latin sounds.

That's why I chose "Where the streets have no name," which did get some airplay in the US, which might have been a bigger hit, but maybe not much more. The video seems much more heteronormative, but it's pretty tame in a lot of ways--I've always thought it's a love letter to Americans who don't understand their own culture.
