Re: PSB - Vaccination

There's no "consternation" about it. 80-90% of the people know that vaccinations save lives (not just your own). We would still be dealing with polio and smallpox today if the fringe lunatics of today were around back in the day.

You shouldn't have the "autonomy" to be an idiot when it comes to the public health. But idiots gonna idiot, year after year.

Re: PSB - Vaccination

Hard to believe that someone would choose not to get something that could save your life, along with lives of others. Because even if it doesn't kill you, if you are infected you can spread it to others, who actually could be at risk of death. Not getting the vaccine is pretty much being an ignoran...

Re: 60 second breakdown film

They probably figure that a life is worth a couple million, but building a new lane (if even possible) is in the hundreds of millions. And cars don't break down as nearly as much as they used to. So, it's a calculated gamble. Of course, breaking down on any high speed motorway can be a scary experie...

Re: Name the next Pet Shop Boys album

I was watching the promos again for the recent Further Listening stuff, and it's kind of depressing that they don't want to put anything out unless it's "master quality". They should scrounge into all their stuff and put out everything that is half finished or whatever and call it "Re...

Re: 60 second breakdown film

Funny this is being promoted as 'Pet Shop Boys". Yes, it's their cover version arrangement of the Village People song, but surely this is just a reproduced soundalike version of their cover made by a library music producer somewhere - as you often get in ads if you listen carefully. There's no...

Looks pretty good, surprised that it's been allowed to stay up for a month. Was it shot on film or video? I can't remember.

Re: Recording of DJ Culture and Was It Worth It?

But to play the revisionism game [emoji4]: How can you expect to be taken seriously? was for me one of the few obvious single choices from Behaviour. But the BiR remix moved the sound in an odd direction, away from single material and more towards the sound of Behaviour. If they were looking for a ...

Re: Discovery 1994 - DVD/CD-Release

Watching that One in a Million/Mr. Vain clip, a lot of energy there. A nice remix of One in a Million might have made a nice (6th) single from Very. I always forget how damn catchy that song is.

Maybe they should get their songs used for commercials more often.
Here are PSB's most downloaded on Amazon US.

Re: Pet Shop Boys, Lately: Your Top 20 of the Last 10 Years

Together is a great track. The only thing that is disappointing about it is that it is mixed and mastered way too loud and compressed. It needs to be remastered to allow some "breathing space' in the mix.

Re: #PSBWatch Opportunities in US TV commerical

Just reading the article - it says it took 1000 downloads to propel it to #1 on the Billboard download dance chart. That's actually pretty pathetic isn't it! :roll: Still, it's getting some press coverage so don't suppose one should complain, and the knock on effect is people may choose to seek out...
