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

Re: The End Of The World (Needs more love)

The 2001 remaster has the track starting after the segue from Nervously. The 2018 remaster corrects the mistake. I must admit that for compilation purposes the 2001 version was better as it just goes bang straight into it. Thanks for reminding me That's what I remember when ripping to mp3 I haven't...

Here's a question - which version do people prefer? The 1990/2018 version or the 2001 edit? :wink:
How is the 2001 edit different?

What was the original track listing for Behaviour:
Miserablism instead of The end of the world ?

Re: SDE article: How do PSB decide who remixes their songs

I think think some of the discord stems from the fact that the club crowd age is a perpetual fountain of twenty-somethings. They stay the same age whereas each year we long long-term fans grow a year older. Never the twain shall meet.

They began to ship it today, according to Instagram.
The PSB store states April 17 as release date, so they are early?
From OS:
Books shipping early
