"Into thin air" could easily make my top 50 or so, but I need some more time to decide...

For my 40th I compiled my best 40 Pet Shop Boys songs and titled it 40; As it were! Twenty-something has stormed straight in at Number 2 and probably will stay in the Top 10 for the next release at 50!

No. None of the Super tracks are that amazing in my mind, that they break into my personal PSB top 10. Twenty Something and Burn would totaly make it in my top 50 though.

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.

The 3 best tracks on the album! Love them. I'm way too lazy to keep a top 20 list of songs but if I did these three tracks would have a good shot at making it.

There are some really strong tracks for me, like Dictator and Robot and Thin.

BUT they don't quite get into the top tier for me. PSB have SO MANY songs, and a great many of them are very strong.

No, not top 10. But I'm utterly impressed by the list above by Boystrange - wow, top 250?

The Pop Kids would be in my top 10. I am not scared, Suburbia and Kings Cross are in top 5, but Pop Kids would be number 8 or 9 for now. I loved MINIMAL since it was released, but now I am a little tired of it.

Not on my top 10, but "Say it to Me" entered my top 20 for sure.

No. Undertow and The Pop Kids would probably find their way into the lower half of my Top 50.
