Re: That Crossover Moment.....

I had a school friend who was a massive fan. He made me a mix tape of PSB, some time in 1989. Looking back, it was a slightly weird mix of songs; I remember that it had The Sound of the Atom Splitting on it, Don Juan, and Shopping, but not Rent, Suburbia, What have I done to deserve this? or Domino...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

By the way, the fifth single (if they had one) should be Wedding in Berlim.
If they want their 15th studio album to be called Down The Dumper, sure.

Re: Final results of rating "Laundrette" songs and "New Boy"

No, I didnt know you could do that. Might check it out but would still want my own list offline too.
There is the function to export lists from Discogs in Excel/csv format.

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

It's almost a song from the 70's and it sounds older than their 80's sounds. I literally just said that. Anyway... for me, it's not about sounds but about attitude . The run of the first five albums - their commercial peak - not only included their imperial period but as when they sounded imperious...

Yes, its not 1987-1988 anymore ! Move On !!
I couldn't agree more. But for some it will forever be 1987 - 1988... :wall: :wall: :wall:
And yet BTH sounds like a dusty b-side - one that should have stayed there - from 1971.

personally, I hope it's not more Guardian political tropes
"Did anyone see that new Woodsy Allen movie?"
"You know, I like his films except for that nervous fellow that's always in them."

Re: Battleship Potemkin - True, accurate sync

Thank you for this. I can finally watch the film again. For added “live” authenticity, I’m going to hold up an inadequate umbrella whilst being sprayed with a light splashing of water.
Let me know if you need anyone tall to stand in front of you, forcing you to stand on tiptoe throughout.

Re: Guardian 100 Greatest UK No.1's

From the comments section on that page: ... it only became a hit because Tennant pulled a few strings to get massive, massive publicity on television before it became a hit... For starters, BBC Breakfast Television, where they basically ran a series on "making a pop record" with this as the example....

Re: Questions for Neil

When while out clubbing you asked Chris why the Pet Shop Boys "don't sound like" the track that was playing and Chris replied "This is us"... what PSB track was it? And why did you want to sound like that?

Re: The New Album Info Thread

I don’t think they’ve ever used the word Princess in a song title. They should have done a song called Princess.

Or Bazaar.

Or Callisthenics.
Nonsense.

Princess and Bazaar are better as album titles than song titles :wink:
