Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR

If PSB wanted a set list with hits only, maybe they can get the easy way. UK's top 10 hits: «West End Girls» «Suburbia» «It's a Sin»" «What Have I Done to Deserve This?» «Rent» «Always on My Mind» «Heart» «Domino Dancing» «Left to My Own Devices» «It's Alright» «So Hard» «How Can You Expect to Be Ta...

The mistake was because I kept in mind one show I loved from the 80's: The Little Shop of Horrors.

Re: Rate "Dreamland"

Watching the performance in the Hyde Park, it is the most obvious interpretation casual people and even fans can give to the song. I don't see any reference to refugees on it. :lol: nickname, I know that you're not the sharpest tool in the box but do you automatically assume that singers in duets a...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

It says 10 songs, 3 minutes so that’s a really heavy edit of Dreamland plus some seriously short songs to go with it!! I don't know if we'll have a more extended version of the song like an album version. Anyway, I think we'll probably have songs of more than 5 minutes long (even 6) with Stuart mix...

From your post is it self-evidently true that you have absolutely no idea what 'production' is.
Ok, call it music atmosphere or whatever.

Weak production

I've been listening some songs from the last PSB albums. I have to admit Stuart has given to PSB a young touch to their music but at the same time, everything sounds easy, dull and weak. The problem is I love up tempo and anthemic songs and when PSB think about working more complex producers like Tr...

Re: Dreamland chart positions

...is why they will never trouble the singles chart again. Concert ticket sales is where it's at for PSB. Drico. I truly hope nickname doesn't read this.. He/She is still holding out hope that all Neil & Chris need to do is release It's A Sin 2 and they are guaranteed another number 1 smash..! 8) 1...

Re: Rate "Dreamland"

Well, seeing as most people are morons, I bow to your superior insight and experience on this matter. Drico. Dreamland is more a love song than anything else for almost everyone who listens the song except hardcore fans. They know PSB and Olly are gays, so they are not going to give a chance on sec...

Re: Rate "Dreamland"

Jesus wept. If people want to interpret it like that, that’s very much their prerogative - and it’s as valid as any other interpretation. But as there are so many themes at play in this fascinating song, it’s remarkable that you would highlight this interpretation as in some way diminishing. Watchi...

Re: Rate

It has a sort of modern r'n'b flair. At first I thought it would suit Justin Timberlake. Even if I recognize strong psb qualities in it, like that ominous dark choir in the backing track,I'm still unsure wether I like it or not. In that Interview before the concert, they explain it's about refugees...

Re: Dreamland on A List BBC Radio 2 and Record of the week

Oh my God you guys. Most all anyone talks about on here is the validity of their marketing campaign and then arguing your point. All futile and pointless exchanges. A single, an interview, a promotion, a tour, a final album, blah blah blah. They are going to release what they are going to release w...

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Hyde Park Sep 15th 2019

I love that version of the song inspired on the Shep Pettibone mix of the song, amazing. But the version from Nightlife Tour is even better.

Which song was the most enjoyable song for the audience?, the one with better reception?.
