Re: Odds that Chris/Neil read this forum?

TBH I think that any celebrity reading social media about them would probably develop a nasty aftertaste in their mouth for the whole thing. I would think that if there was a logical approach to gleaning anything from social media they would pay someone to navigate sites like this and report back as...

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

Linger by the Cranberries. Turn it into a Hi-Nrg disco stomper with Bananarama handling the chorus (I would also love to hear Tom Waits or Nick Cave cover this song in their own styles). Can We Start Again by the Tindersticks. Feelin' Good - Nina Simone. Rollercoaster by Everything But the Girl. The...

Re: New single - I don't wanna

Lyrically and timeline-wise this song is commercially safe for the days of Coronoavirus. Not so sure how Happy People would go down with the emotional landscape of today for a lot of people. I do hold out hope for HP as a 5th single.....four singles on this lp and two of them are the weakest songs o...

Re: 4th single off Hotspot

"I’d expect a “Classic song ‘20” to coincide with the greatest hits tour before a 5th single."

hmmmm....how about they do another cover and maybe bake into it the threatened collaboration with Tracey Thorn?

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

With the stems for a certain Peter Garbiel song out there I am surprised no one has made a "Shock the Monkey Business" mashup.

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

I would love of complete version of the guys doing a full-on rap version of West End Girls if we're still doing a bonus features wish list.

Re: Rate "Dreamland"

Dreamland sounds like a sub-par track for Erasure. Don't get me wrong, I quite like a lot of Erasure's music, just DL sounds like something from their later catalog. If Andy and Vince did it I would probably shrug and think, hmmm, not their best but they're trying. For the PSB it is just incredibly ...

Swagger and attitude that goes nowhere, another disappointment from the Price era.

Re: That “So Hard” sample...

And the line in question in the original ABC track is Martin Fry's voice, not Eden/Fiona Russell

Re: Dreamland / No Boundaries CD single - October

I like the 2 b-sides more than 2/3 of (not) ''Super,'' the Agenda ep and the a-side.
If the new album is more like the b-sides then I'll like it.

Re: Rate "Dreamland"

Easily one of the most awful things they've ever released. Certainly not lead single material & most of their b-sides are better than this.
They really need to move on from the Stuart Price connection.
(Not) Super was a dumpster fire and they appear to be breaking out the gasoline.

Nothing from (Not) Super?
That one is full of clunkers and Winner is a tough act to follow.

Re: Saint Ken (Mixes)

There's a couple in there that I like but to my ears it sounds like he uses the same sound and beat on his mixes and a lot of them all start to sound the same.
