In bits.

Banging and lasers came from an iTunes review.

I believe the reviewer was called BlackpoolChris.
Not quite...I knew I'd seen this somewhere...

Re: Name the next Pet Shop Boys album

I wonder if PSB staff does read this thread? There's some seriously good suggestion in here. If one of my suggestions was used, I’d be straight in touch with their people demanding some credit on the album sleeve haha Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk If we throw enough words at the wall there's a...

He never used ‘tits’ though...
Exactly my first thought! I'd have used it as a primary rhyme.
I'll take the cringeworthy rhyme thanks.

Re: Missing...

I love "In Bits"! The music is haunting, and the despair in the lyrics is tangible. Sure there are couple of cringeworthy rhymes in there, but I challenge anyone to rhyme the word "bits" that many times in a songs context without having to fluff it a few times. :clap:

Re: Pet Shop Boys to create music for My Beautiful Laundrette stage adaptation

Well that came out of leftfield!

More exposure for the Boys before the new album release. Good stuff.

Keep the ball rolling!

Bubadubadubadum (All My Wasted Time)

Was rabbit holing online and took a re-listen to Bubadubadubadum (All My Wasted Time) last night, and it really struck me what an actually very good song it is. I'm genuinely stunned that Neil and Chris haven't revisited it. The music could be refreshed and updated to sound more contemporary, and pe...

Re: Name the next Pet Shop Boys album

So Pet Shop Boys - Peter Gabriel did it already but would totally work. Are apostrophes allowed?: That's Pet Shop Boys We're Pet Shop Boys Some other thoughts (and apologies if already suggested): Pet Shop Boys, Duality Pet Shop Boys, Community (nod to this site :roll: ) More Pet Shop Boys Stream Pe...

Re: PSB at Glastonbury !

So to make today very memorable, my nephew of 19 years pinged me today totally out of the blue to ask me ... "in your opinion what’s the best pet shop boys album to start listening to?" I was floored - he's not into much pop stuff and listens to a lot of bands/acts I'd not heard of - 21 Savage for ...

Re: PSB at Glastonbury !

Imagine being at Glastonbury, watching Hot Chip on the Park Stage having failed to persuade your friends to go and see The Killers - and suddenly your phone goes crazy with texts asking if you have just seen PSB walk out onto the Pyramid Stage. That happened to me on Saturday. I was at the complete...

Re: Name the next Pet Shop Boys album

Just riffing on their album naming conventions and sometimes long titles, for fun.

Pet Shop Boys, Break the Mould

Predictable, Pet Shop Boys

Re: The New Album Info Thread

And a new Annually about the album in April :clap: Spot on. I love it when a plan comes together! PSB's are masters of neatly pulling together the whole product package. It makes so much sense to time and tie everything - album, tour, Annually - together. No further mystery pettexts of polaroid pic...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

If we go old school, It's A Sin was released mid-June, and Actually came out the first week of September. Even by today's standards it wouldn't be unrealistic to expect a single release in the next month or so, in time for Hyde Park, and the album release shortly after. I'm hopeful for some teasery ...

Re: Where is the oddest public place you've heard a PSB song?

Heard "It's a Sin" at London, ON, Covent Garden Market last Friday. Not sure which vendor was playing it, but they had an 80's mix going on.
