Re: MY CHRISTMAS TOP 50 (IT INCLUDES PET SHOP BOYS)

Nice one - here are my best albums of 2017 https://lifeassistanceagency.com/2017/12/02/albums-of-the-year-2017/ Listening to the Gents album now. Somehow I hadn't heard of them despite being fellow danes. However, I'm really not keen on his voice. I think I'm gonna have a hard time getting over tha...

It did!

Does anybody else out there have a copy and is it the same also? Would be nice to know if they were all manufactured like this. Seems like a strange thing to do.

Re: Rare Opportunities Phillipines 12" - is this true?

I've just checked my copy and it does have the cellophane. So it sounds like the seller is correct. I never noticed it before as it was shrinkwrapped in another loose layer. Thanks! Does the cellophane seem semi-adhesive, badly cut and cello taped on the inside of the sleeve? Basically, it looks ve...

Rare Opportunities Phillipines 12" - is this true?

Asking for a buddy who got hold of a copy of the very rare Phillipines "baseball glove sleeve" 12" of "Opportunities". However, his copy is wrapped with sort of an adhesive cellophane wraparound that can't be removed without damaging the sleeve. The seller of the item claims that all copies came wit...

Re: PSB-Elton John: "In Private" the Format version/mix???

Elton really isn't the problem. It is just a terrible production. It was bad on Fundamentalism but the "remix" is just like having Al Qaeda send suicide bombers into your eardrum.

Re: PSB-Elton John: "In Private" the Format version/mix???

Just played it because of this thread and I'm sorry to say that it is as shite as ever. Utterly tuneless remix. The version on Fundamentalism was at least barely listenable, this is a massacre.

Re: Can "Groovy" qualify to be a Super single?

Saying that Groovy could be a hit because Get Lucky was a hit is pure nonsense. Get Lucky is cool and infectious, Groovy is just annoying. There are exactly three singles on Super and they are The Pop Kids, Twenty-Something and Burn - in that order! Infact, I don't think there's ever been a PSB albu...

Re: Would you include one song from "Super" in your Top 10 PSB songs of all time?

No, but three tracks are amongst the classics: Burn, Twenty-Something and The Dictator Decides. Not top 10 though, but three tracks of that caliber is definitely more than I had realistically hoped for.

Seriously? She's the biggest pop star in the world, probably. At least if you don't count Adele.

Re: "SUPER" - CHART RESULTS

Disappointing results in Sweden and Norway. Hopefully it does better in Denmark and Finland?
