Dispute with the label. They wanted 'Amazing' as single number 4, but she wanted 'Impressive Instant' (remixes had been commissioned for the latter in the USA; a promo disc was issued of the former to radio). To circumvent her, the label was going to film a live video for 'Amazing' from the Drowned World tour, so she decided to cut off her nose to spite her face and cut it from the setlist (replacing it with 'Beautiful Stranger'.)
The campaign already seemed finished with WIFLFAG, the song was very uncommercial and the video only had a the remix (which I loved).
Impressive Instant as a summer single to coincide with the tour followed by a moody/arty last single in the fall (Paradise or Gone) would have been perfect.
I loved Amazing back then, but really, in what world would it have done better than Impressive Instant?
