Re: Happy people

COVID-19 UPDATE!

"Happy people" is more relevant as ever. At least the chorus is, and that's the only part people listen to. So why not release it as a single - accompanied by a video?

Re: How many Tennant/Lowe-tracks?

Well, according to Geowayne, "Later tonight" is credited Tennant/Lowe.

Re: How many Tennant/Lowe-tracks?

Do you count What have I done to deserve this? as a pure Tennant/Lowe track, since it has got other writers too? "Credited or co-credited to Tennant/Lowe". "What have I done to deserve this?" is co-credited to Tennant/Lowe. So yes, I count that song and other tracks where Tennan...

No, the Geowayne-list also includes songs written by others, such as cover songs.

How many Tennant/Lowe-tracks?

===NERD ALERT!=== Does anyone have an excact number of how many unique tracks are released credited or co-credited to Tennant/Lowe (or Lowe/Tennant), performed by any artist (including PSB themselves, of course)? I know that there's a list on Geowayne.com called "PSB Song Chronology" with ...

Re: "Rating Project" poll on most recent PSB tracks ends soon

Oh, I thought it was biweekly. I got to hurry, then.


EDIT: Now I've heard them through once more, and I've casted my votes. Thanks for waiting:)

(I'm not particulary impressed by these songs. I find only "Angelig thug" to be (slighty) above PSB-average. The rest of them are below.)

Re: PSB Summer Songs

Four years have passed since I made the list in the opening post. PSB have, in my opinion, released two obvious summer songs since 2016. Those are:

- An open mind
- Happy people

Re: Which song Pet Shop Boys could cover in the future?

It should be something completely unexpected and un-PSB-esque (like they did in 2013 with "The last to die" by Bruce Springsteen): - Any Pink Floyd-song (f.ex."Money" or "Wish you were here") - Any blackmetal-song (f.ex. "Chainsaw Gutsfuck" by Mayhem or "...

Re: The best remix ever

There should be a poll for this. A series of polls. With qualification rounds, quarterfinals, semifinals and a grand final. A process lasting approx. one year. Something to do while we wait for the covid vaccine.

Re: Annually 2020 + Free CD

- the dialogue cut from "You are the one" is from Call Me By Your Name. Originally they wanted a dialogue from Fellini's 8.5, but that didn't go through because of copyrights and the owners not wanting to do it, so they asked the people form Call Me By Your Name and they agreed. Unfortuna...
