I'm Not Scared is my favorite but "I want a dog" is quite good as well and puts the b-side version to shame. Completely different song.
For general discussion of Pet Shop Boys topics.
Actually for me. I liked Please, but Actually was a step up. I liked Introspective, but half of the tracks I already knew (Always on my mind, I want a dog and I'm not scared) so my initial reaction was that it was just... okay. But it grew on me and became one of my favourites due to how the album works. But in the end, I think Actually's better.
Behaviour is the best one, which immediately invalidates this poll.
Yes, the year was a mistake of mine. I don't know if it was Number 1 in this countries, I'm happy for that. But it was Number 1 in Spain and some South American markets.TallThinMan wrote: ↑Wed 17 Jun 2020, 9:45 pmDomino Dancing came out in 1988, not 1989.

In 1989, PSB was quite Imperial too. Domino Dancing was Number 1 in latin countries, like Spain. It was a very successful song everywhere except UK. I'm not Scard (Patsy Kensit version) was Number 1 in countries like Italy. Always on my Mind was worldwide hit with several Number Ones (but I see what you mean it's attached to Actually), Left to my own Devices and It's Alright were quite succesful too.
At that time, PSB was still at the top.
...there is a strange reasoning behind those words ...
This is not my signature.
It was in the days that everyone adored Michael Jackson (before all of the bad stuff came along - think it all was a shame). Thriller was an even better album than Bad. (I managed to get that in later life). It was shame Actually didn't make it to number one. I agree with you Nickname - very good and happy times for the music. I loved the 80's.Nickname wrote: ↑Wed 17 Jun 2020, 11:23 amWhat amazing albums!, I don't put the blame of you because you chose Bad. I'd probably do the same. I'm a big fan of MJ. In fact, PSB and MJ were my favourite artists of all time. Bad is amazing and Actually too, both were at the top of the charts being Number 1 and Number 2. It's a pity because PSB could get Number 1 if MJ didn't release his album at that time. Anyway, very good and happy times for the music.Marie loves PSB wrote: ↑Wed 17 Jun 2020, 9:25 amSame here D.J.! Both excellent albums. My Mum gave me a choice of either buying Michael Jackson's Bad record or PSB's Actually at the time. I went and chose Michael Jackson in the end. Then a little while after my Mum bought me PSB's Actually and Michael Jackson's Bad got the boot. Actually was played over and over. It was my first PSB's album and fan for life.
When I first heard Introspective - the wonderful Left to my own devices intro I thought that some one had put the wrong label on the record and it wasn't them! I didn't expect that sort of intro.
