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

In a way I’m in that camp, as I believe the quality, scope, song writing and production have deteriorated since then. Not a surprise I hasten to add. I often wonder why ? I think this is actually several intersecting. things. The best period for pop music is always when you were young. There's no g...

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: In a way I’m in that camp, as I believe the quality, scope, song writing and production have deteriorated since then.

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

I think they should cover ‘when do I get to sing my way’ by the Sparks

I mean it’s practically a PSB song anyway ( with a nod to cut copy) and the video is one of my all time favourites

And Christi Haydon (the drummer) is utterly gorgeous in the video !!!!!

Odds slashed that it’s going to be ‘house if the rising sun’ Let’s go with the thought... West End girls doesn’t make it. Consider that: Out of the top 100 number ones of all time ... not one ( of their 4 number ones) makes the list Hmmmmmppppphhhhhh It will be a sad day :-( Lets hope I’m being too ...

Unless there’s a missing S or breaking news of the PSB splitting !!

Re: The best remix ever

I do think the boys have been spoilt royally with the quality of the YouTube mixes done unofficially, which have often been far better than the versions put out by the boys. I often listen to a playlist of remixes including Jcrz - more than a dream (30’ neour...

Re: Just listened to Relentless - it's not very good

It is in the top 5 (*) albums they’ve ever made. Timeless (*) For the record the others are (predictably)... please, actually, very, behaviour. My favourite is one thing leads to another. It’s euphoric. It’s epic. The grandmaster remix takes it to another level. It rains on hotspot, super, release, ...

I watched this with a sceptical eye. Overall, it was better than I feared and hats off to him doing his homework. Not sure I agree with his rankings but he explained his with conviction and that’s ok. Absolutely agree with his disdain for wedding in Berlin. It joins tripe such as winner, ego music, ...
