I like Someone Like You very much but Hello is despicably corny and insincere.
If Adele released a version of Breathing Space, it would be number one forever.

A fifth Number One is forever out of their grasp. They're never going to collaborate or duet with another artist who could get them to that spot either. Even if they worked with big chart acts like Little Mix, Lady Gaga, Ariadne Grande, or Dua Lipa, I don't think it would get them anywhere near.

Isn't it now all about album sales anyway?

A duet with Ariadne Grande which would be a soundtrack from a globally smash hit movie as tear jerky as Titanic or as cornily sexy as Fifty Shades of Grey plus a very sexy video plus a heavy promotion plus every event or charity organization that they could put their hands on and where they could perform the song till every one pleads "please stop stop enough"...

Well, then maybe :lol:

Maybe.... only if they released the track as a single edit without Neil's vocals 😉

Unless I'm forgetting one, they haven't done a good duet since What Have I Done To Deserve This?

Kylie - bad
Elton - bad
Robbie - meh
Example - barely a duet, more a bonus rap.
Olly - meh

This Used To Be The Future was good, but it had three vocalists rather than two.

yeah I dont like their duets or even them partaking in them. I just want them on their songs. even dusty, yes yes I know "what have I done" is beloved by all the fans but she sounds so much like neil on the track and vice versa when I listen to the track I dont even hear a duet. just neil maybe using two different microphones or something lol

"She's Madonna" is fairly brilliant, I'd say. Sounds like a poppy "Tour de France"!

I stand corrected. That was indeed a good one. (I forgot that one on account of it being a remix).

Retro. :)

Damn what a loss George Michael is. I still remember being at the movie theater to take the family to see one of the Star Wars premiers and one of my daughter's saw the news alert on her phone. it totally ruined the movie. which was bad anyways btw. I still cant believe we wont ever hear that golden voice on new albums. glad I got to see him for the faith tour. you could go 100 years and never get a voice like that again.
A Pet Shop Boys George Michael collaboration would of been such a treat! Such a loss Indeed.
