OTHER NOTES
Discothèque was the first single released from the album Pop. Planned for a late January radio release, the date had to be moved forward due to several leaks on the internet of the single. The commercial release followed in early February.  The commercial singles featured a series of remixes of the title track. Discothèque became one of the stronger songs from this album performed live. A live version of the song as played during the Pop tour surfaced on the fan club only release Hasta La Vista Baby, as well as a b-side to the Beautiful Day single. The song was also performed live throughout the Elevation Tour of 2001.
