Re: NEW West End Girls 2x12" (Nov 2020)

Terrible remix. Highlights how bad the vocals were in the Bobby O version of West End girls. Came up in my Release Radar on Spotify and I've decided instead to spend some time listening to official versions of West End girls instead! πŸ‘Œ

Re: Being Boring At 30

One of their best tracks and I never tire of hearing it. I only got into PSB around the time and I would have been 10 when Behaviour came out. The lyrics are heartbreaking.

Re: When you stop liking the music as much

I've never understood the concept of a Pet Shop Boys fan who also likes Erasure. It's like a coffee lover who's happy to take decaf from time to time. Are you liking them because you get bored in between PSB albums? Classic trolling πŸ˜‚πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ Nope, no trolling. I find it incomprehensible as well this Er...

Happy Friday

Hello!

Thought I'd add a wee message here as I'm sort of new.

Fan since 1993, a little bit lapsed since then.

Go through peaks and troughs but PSB are always my favourites even if I don't always show it!

Re: When you stop liking the music as much

Pet Shop Boys are still my top all-time favourite band, but something happened to me as a fan between Yes and Elysium. From Elysium onwards I was just a little less engaged with everything - and I don't think it's due to the album itself. The obsessive fandom that took up my teens and twenties took ...

That would have been pretty cool. Better still if he'd left blank pages and the official site had downloadable sheets that could be pasted in... :lol:

100 Lyrics and Hotspot

I wonder what songs from Hotspot Neil would have included is his book of lyrics had it been published now? Am I right that no co-writes (beyond Tennant/Lowe) were included in the book? If so, that would excluded Monkey Business and Dreamland. I think "Will-o-the-Wisp" would be the most obvious conte...

Re: It’s a Sin - Upcoming AIDS drama

The subject of this thread is more obvious than the other one.

Looking forward to this drama as I've loved lots of RTD's other work.

Me too. Would've been great if they'd worked with Suede on a studio version of this version :up:

Really wish the Red Zone remix was on Spotify. It's brilliant.

Re: What do you think PSB are going to do this year?

I hate to think this way but I cant even really listen to Hotspot anymore. its just too fused with the event. even the cover which I used to love I dislike now because it just seems to perfectly capture 2020. dreary. Feel exactly the same. I listened the hell out of the album back in Feb/March, but...

Re: Ooh, Gary Davies - vote PSB

Such a tough decision. Is Actually really the best album of the 1980s... I don't know if I can justify voting for PSB.
