Re: Neil and Chris and their big secret we speculate about, from time to time

I can honestly say I haven't really considered them being a couple.

Not that I think it matters, but I think they're just great friends. Don't we all have that one friend we have a really special bond with and stick together through thick and thin over a long period of time?

Lily Savage (Paul O'Grady) Pet Shop Boys rip-off single.

Re: If PSB top 5, who are other 4?

Pet Shop Boys
Depeche Mode
John Grant
Years and Years

Re: Choose the 5 th single (if there is a new one)

I love Happy People, and think it could have had an amazing single version. I'd have chosen it as a single over Monkey Business or Burning the Heather. I also think that it sounds like something the wider audience would associate with PSB so another reason to consider it as a choice. It's actually m...

Re: What would you think a future PSB's album should sound like in order to reinvent themselves?

They had previously mentioned long before it was named, that Hotspot was going to be a "dark techno" album. That must have changed far earlier. I love Hotspot, but I would still like to hear a dark techno style album from them. I do think that their next album will unfortunately be their l...

I've got a very fussy taste in music but my other favorite bands are Depeche Mode, Hurts and I do occasionally listen to Kraftwerk. Preferably Bands/Artists still active, though any help is...
