Re: Birthday wishes for Chris 2020

I think this mask thing best suited Chris' interests. He always loved to be in the shadows and now he can go outside and be one of the crowds with this half-closed face without any trepidation lol :)

Re: Common lyrical themes

Endless bickering, complaining and whining:

You only tell me you love me when you're drunk
I don't know what you want but I can't give it any more
That's my impression
Why don't we live together?
What have I done to deserve this?

Re: PSB in Rolling Stone's best 500 albums of all time

I just scanned the list and found it quite enjoyable. It seems very ecclectic; it is also very predictable and also very unpredictable because nearly half of the albums (and bands) remain unknown to me. and perhaps there were too many Led Zeppelins? Also, maybe I overlooked but I do not recall seein...

Re: PSB in Rolling Stone's best 500 albums of all time

They also refer to the Boys in Taylor Swift's 1989 at number 393: "Swift set out to make “blatant pop music” on 1989 and came up with a love letter to the Pet Shop Boys and Eurythmics, all glossy synths, icy snares, and the manic rush of “Blank Space” and “Bad Blood" Someone evidently loves our Boys...

Re: PSB and their successful album charts results in the 80's in Mexico, Brazil and South Africa

Thank you! At least you made me re-live those magnificient times, "wrapped in nostalgia" I am very happy that I first-hand witnessed their "imperial" time. It was so fun, so exciting...to keep up with releases, to follow up their chart positions...How I was disappointed when What Have I Done...did n...

Re: Future duet

I don't think PSB will have another number 1 ever even if they duet with Donald Trump :D . I could see them having a posthumous number one for one week if they both died at the same time (Heaven forbid) and West End Girls was re-released. Lots of people would probably remember how much they liked i...

Re: Pet Shop Boys on Youtube

According to Kworb net, PSB's daily average views rose by nearly 80 k views (314k) compared to pre-Covid times. I don't know if it is due to the stay-at-home boredom or PSB are gaining new audience fast but it feels like a blasphemy when DM and A-ha receive 800k and 850k views a day, respectively. I...

As far as I know, Always on my mind is (PROUDLY) their internationally best charting single. So it should be the best-selling one, lol:)

Re: Interview about favourite song

Loosely translated: NT: "The most important song of our lives? That must be Passion from The Flirts". You heard it first, Chris. So you have to tell about it. We're of course talking about the 12" version. CL: Ah, that was a long time ago. NT: It must have been 1982 CL: Are we that old? NT: Chris i...
