I'm sure this is old news, but has everyone asked Alexa who her favourite band is?

The more I listen to MB the more it resembles me to the Stuart Price's "Les Rhythmes Digitales" early days...
I loved that sound then..not so sure now...
This is not my signature.

Alexa's favourite band

Apologies for posting in the wrong topic before but I couldn't work out how to create a new topic. Anyway, who has asked Alexa who her favourite band is? Her response is very sweet.

One of the guests on 6 Music said that. Yes, because just the other day I was convinced that I was listening to Kylie's new single. Turns out it was Dark Side of the Moon. How could I have been so stupid to confuse the two! That's the chamelon quality of Pink Floyd for you - one day, you think it's Kylie, the next they sound like Scatman John.

For those of us who dont use Alexa perhaps you can elaborate.

Alexa says ‘My favourite band is Pet Shop Boys Actually they are Always On My Mind and Left To My Own Devices I’d make lots of Opportunities to listen to them but it’s So Hard.
Wow ! Who knew she had such great taste 😊
If I thought what you’d think I wouldn’t even be here.

Actually, the bass made me think of Fred Falke and Alan Braxe.

Female backing vocals?, I don't think so. I think it's only Neil but I don't know.

I'm still amazed by people thinking the backing vocals are only Neil and not female. Don't know why this is. These are 100% female and nothing else.

Monkey Business failed to appear in any of the U.K. Charts this week.

Not very surprising without any physical release for a PSB song though, right? :wink:

BBC R1 have just played a snippet of the FriendWithin remix of Monkey Business on MistaJam show. Like it.
