Re: IF Disney wanted PSB to work on a soundtrack, would you like it?

there's a european band named "GHOST" thats very big over here. a couple things...one ...they wear evil looking old man masks and costumes, and they are a band whose imagery and style is regarding satan, singing songs about lucifer. yet oddly young children have embraced them. the lyrics about satan...

Re: Today I listened to Elysium for the first time since 2012...

Re: What's the most impressive thing PSB have done?

The most impressive thing I think they have done was the "Agenda EP". not the music, their music is always wonderful. for me the most impressive thing was they actually went against their usual modus operandi and gave us a surprise album. more of this please. the usual style of finding out the album...

Re: Most Forgettable PSB Song

Does anyone remember Inside? Or was it so forgettable you forgot it? For some reason everytime I hear "Playground bullies taunt and cheat" the next line in my head is "a sensitive soul who's a role model". Must be the same chords or something. there ya go! I was struggling with something for this t...

Re: New EP in April: Agenda

While I dont necessarily agree with a couple lyrics, I kinda like political Neil. he's topical. I'd rather he keep on that, rather than songs about pop kids or burning the disco down. but I suspect he will always do both. but boy still lovin "On Social Media". what a great track

Re: Poll ends soon on your early overall impression of Agenda

Very happy with the results so far. its kinda clear that the negative reviews expressed here were by no means representative of the overall view by fans. I always keep forgetting that, not ...all the fans... are on this forum and that there actually are other fans out there :)

Re: Agenda: Top Three Moments

One thing though, as beautiful as the forgotten child is, I always wince...when I read a review of a PSB song I havent heard yet and the person describes a PSB song as not having a chorus. forgotten child makes up for it with the nice arrangement and that stunning ending section, but to me, any PSB ...

Re: Where is the oddest public place you've heard a PSB song?

the place is usually not whats odd.....its the song selection. sometimes I have heard deep tracks at the strangest places. I never dreamed...the day would come I would hear "drunk" and "before"at abercrombie and fitch. and "the end of the world" on the muzak system at a movie theater hallway. yes it...

Re: Here We Go..It's The Agenda Poll

I've often thought it must feel a bit strange to be a right winged Pet Shop Boys fan. There can't be many albums of theirs which could be played without that fan's finger hovering over the 'skip' button. It'd be a bit like being a socialist with a bizarre fascination for, fffffffffffffff... I dunno...

Re: Agenda: Top Three Moments

I also love the final little rap in "rich". I wish the song was set up more with that style as the vocal for verse parts. the first chorus of "stupid". theres a little horn part that plays something, that adds a little counter melody to neils singing. it doesnt happen again. I also love the male cha...

Re: New EP in April: Agenda

the downside to them trickling out tracks daily must be the mental health of Neil and Chris.imagine how disheartening it would be if its a case of FIRST DAY dont like that one SECOND DAY dont like that one THIRD DAY meh FOURTH DAY oh this ones ok dont like that one. day after day. at first they woul...

Re: New EP in April: Agenda

this is why I keep saying...we are so lucky to be fans of band that is so prolific and give us so much new material. there are people fans of bands who go decades without releasing anything new.

Re: Name the next Pet Shop Boys album

An Agenda is not the content of a meeting, but the instructions for what is to come.... I think people are wrong to assume there won't be a political theme to the forthcoming album... Perhaps it will be called 'Minutes' ? Oh Lord seeing "minutes" made me ill. I hate when things of work pop up unexp...

Re: New EP in April: Agenda

I'm glad Drico liked it thank God. I wonder about stevepsb. it always puts me on edge when people who have not only been longtime fans but are also PSB forum caretakers no less..are disappointed by a PSB release. I'm glad we see someone like Drico sticking up for Neils lyrics. as I was enjoying the ...
