Re: PSB at the BBC

Lisa Snowdon was fit. Still weird for me seeing them during this period - the post-Very years when synthpop was out of fashion and they weren't wearing hats and silly costumes - but then they were again, only this time they were even sillier - before the final and most bizarre costume of all: Neil w...

Wow. That second stanza reminds me of the Paninaro '95 video.

Re: Now 7 on CD

As far as I can tell from the (extensive) comments on superdeluxeedition.com, none of the six new CD versions has replicated the original tracklistings i.e. every single new Now has different (more common) versions of songs from those originally included. I would therefore be extremely surprised if...

Re: Pet Shop Boys & Robbie Williams

I like a few of his singles but was always repelled by his persona. He always seemed over-needy and desperate to appeal to the lowest common denominator - so for every Feel, there's a Rock DJ.

Re: PSB at the BBC

https://youtu.be/YbgAgWuOUPg Such a shame they didn't upload a high-quality version of this - I love that single; it's obviously overlooked a bit because of the first two singles from Very but it's such a bonkers look and video which really suit the song's sentiment. All a bit Partridge with Sue Co...

Re: Do you think these songs should be included on Dream World Tour?

There are some things have been said more or less (playing songs from the new album, top 10 hits in UK, some songs sang by other artists included, all of it played in reverse chronological order). Will-o-the-wisp (I think they will plan a new version of it like single material for the concerts, the...
