Re: What is your least favourite EVER Pet Shop Boys song?

Happiness is an option
Footsteps is the most underwritten bland piece they've ever written, That and the only one.
Night before I fell in love - it's a great tune but the lyrics! My god.

Meanwhile Give Stupidity a Chance is unlistenable

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

GSAC - Its greatest crime is breaking what PSB are renown for: subtlety. This song is as subtle as clotted cream. Whereas 2006's Indefinite Leave to Remain used immigration status as metaphor for love, or the other way round, this just points at people with differing political opinion and calls them...

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Social media is FAR better - love it. It's an italo off-cut from the Very era. Is it Chris doing backing vocals ?

I'm still in shock over GSAC.

But very pleased there is an EP to keep us happy until the album , and that GSAC won't be on it.

Good times.

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Wow. This is actually a bit shit. Talk about conceited. I mean Neil, come on! He comes across as a complete t***. it's sneering and superior. I know best. The plebs are stupid for having different opinions to me. And they've written better b-sides. Dead can dance is a million times better than this.

Re: The new album of Pet Shop Boys: "It's sounding good!". Are you sure Neil?

Sadly, I think one of my favourite things in life is hearing of a new PSB song title long before I hear it, so I can imagine what it sounds like.

It reminds me of them announcing It's a sin in Smash Hits.

Hopefully there will be no more stuff about the Super tour!

Re: Dricography: Ranking Behaviour

I was just always underwhelmed by DJ culture - I love the Grid remix , but the 7" was just sort of too compressed and sort of messy. Not sure why it never stuck for me. It might be the vocal. Neil sounds a bit bored, and it's too wordy. I think. The extended mix is certainly far better.

Re: Classic Pop Magazine - November 2018

I was very chuffed to find Hague has liked my Facebook update announcing the sequel novel to the Life Assistance Agency - Unfinished Business.

Top bloke, and I had forgotten he produced Banderas This is Your Life wchih also features Johnny Marr and Bernard Sumner.
