So, just out of curiousity I want to know...
(Me, I was hooked when I first heard 'West end girls' on the radio, bought 'Please' as soon as it came out!)
But how about YOU? And why?

(P.S. took the liberty of taking out the 'special' albums like the 'Disco's' and 'Discography'...)

Introspective. I wanted to buy their records for a long time before that, but a friend of mine said she had heard one of their albums and thought every song sounded the same. I'm glad I decided not to care about her opinions...

the first CD I owned was very.I remember hearing "I wouldnt normally do this kind of thing" playing in on a record store sound system..I was like wow a upbeat pop song with string and horns. not much out there that sounds like that.

from that day on I had a PSB CD hoedown and pretty much bought everything they had out and listened to it all like a marathon.

It was actually Hallo Spaceboy which peaked my interest in them. I loved Neil's voice.

Actually.

Had been hearing It's A Sin loads on the radio and fell in love with the sound (as I had just started playing piano/keyboards myself), and wanted to hear more.
Remember saving up some pocket money and making my Mum take me to Woolworths!!! lol to buy it on cassette (format of choice at the time). Ended up having about 2 or 3 copies on cassette cos I kept wearing them out. Then bought it on vinyl (could copy to tape whenever then!!), and then CD a year or so later when my Dad bought our first CD player. So had it on all formats at one time or another!!!

Still possibly my fave PSB album.

Discography. My uncle gave me their Discography CD when I was 15, but I didn't know a lot about PSB except for the fact that the Heart video gave me nightmares when it was released back when I was 4!) One day, a few years later when I was 17, I was sorting through some CDs, looking for ones to sell, and I came across Discography. I decided to pop it into the CD player, and voila! I've been hooked ever since. I had never been exposed to that kind of sound before....due to the fact my favourite band were The Beatles and I only really listened to music of that type. I used to get shit for liking the Beatles a lot, but not so much with PSB. Except one time, only last year, some guy added me to MSN and asked me who Neil Tennant was (my msn is neil_tennant_fan_uk) and I said he's from the Pet Shop Boys, and he was like "well i think you're cool, even though you like psb". WHATEVERRR. He was blocked soon after, anyway :twisted:

But yes, thats how I became a fan. I nearly sold their album, too! So glad I didn't. PSB albums are really hard to come by here in New Zealand though, so I've had to save up a bit of cash in some instances to purchase material from overseas. But it's worth it!

Please - Taped the charts on Radio1 chistmas 84, i think West End girls was no3 at the time with Shakin' Stevens at NO1, just kept playing these 2 tracks, fell in love big time when Suburbia was released. And the rest is History as they say.

I did buy Suburbia and had heard Actually a few times, but it was in the Summer of 1989 that I was continually listening to a tape with Actually on it while on holiday in France... I still remember the tape ending half way through Kings Cross just after the line 'it take more than a matter of time'... I still anticipate the song abruptly stopping there these days! So it is since 1989 that I have been really into PSB, bought It's Alright that summer and admired pictures in magzines of the first tour, feeling very jealous of those who saw them live!
I went fishing with Salvador Dali; he used a dotted line.
