OTHER NOTES
Please was the fourth single released to radio from the Pop album. It was released in early September to radio, and the commercial singles would follow a month later. Two commercial versions of the single exist - one titled Please with a cover similar to the promo covers, and one titled PopHeart which was labelled as an EP in regions it was released.

The version of Please released is different than that on the Pop CD. It was rerecorded for the single release. The promo single featured various edits of this rerecorded single version.
