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

15 years since I first posted on this tread.
Also my mother's birthday. She'll be thrilled to know she shares a birthday with a PSB song...

Pet Shop Who?

You know, that group I've been a fan of for years and years

Never heard of it...

Them

I know you like New Heads on the Block

No. I never liked them. And it's Kids. That was someone else thirty years ago and we sorted that mistake out at the time and every few years since.

New Heads on the Kids sorry you know I forget things.

That's true

You'll have to forgive me

I forgive you.

Who are you anyway?

1 SHOW ME HEAVEN MARIA MCKEE
2 I'VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT YOU LONDONBEAT
3 BLUE VELVET BOBBY VINTON

look at all these dire one hit wonders which C**k Blocked our beloved PSB :grumble: (Londonbeat was not bad..though)

I was born in a hospital room with green walls, the doctor who delivered me wore a green overall, so did the nurses hovering around. So much greenery around, its no wonder that it is my favourite colour !

Lol that picture and resemblance is so funny that I couldn't help myself but laugh very loudly in the subway, making some people jump on their feet :)=

As for So Hard; Yes, the expectations were high; I was spending that weekend at my cousin's home and some of his friends (who were metal bangers and whom I never thought would be loving PSB, let alone, liking them) excitedly waited for it and gave a 4 points out of 5. I guess that was a satisfactory score.

The same thing goes for me. But now in retrospect, I know that the times had changed by then and people was moving away from synthpop in droves even at that time (with a tinge of homophobia of course, they were shifting to grunge etc). Actually Number 4 and Very's Number One position (with two top ten hits) seems a miracle now (and also shows how dedicated fans they had even by then).

The So Hard TOTP performance was 30 years ago today. Is the full version available online anywhere (uchoob only has half of it)?
