Well done Dog for being the top PSB nerd!! I’m pleased with my 2nd place. Like you, I’ve never heard the yo-yo story - most of the others I got wrong rang a bell once the answers were provided

Re: Remixes you think are better than the original version

I'm usually not fond of remixes, but the Moby remix of Miserablism is something special. As a Moby track, not a PSB track. And the PSB Remix of Hello Spaceboy remains one of my favourite tracks.

Submitted my answers. Turns out there was more than 1 answer I knew. Some I deduced and some I just plainly searched in old Literally issues. The rest was a gamble.

Re: Pet Shop Boys to create music for My Beautiful Laundrette stage adaptation

The image quality is ace though. And again, I've seen enough stage plays online due to COVID-19 to know this is common too.

Re: Pet Shop Boys & Robbie Williams

That's a remix of "We're the Pet Shop Boys" which Robbie recorded. Yes, but they did produce it, right? I’m pretty sure the Robbie version is the same backing track as the Chris Zippel / PSB version from the Pet Shop Boys’ recording. Yes, but we're talking about the Sander van Doorn remix. And alth...

Didn’t PSB produce (or co-produce) the Sander Van Doorn vs Robbie Williams track ‘Close My Eyes’ too?

What a cool record label name by the way, "High Fashion Music".

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

Watched it with audio-commentary just now. Very intersting things. I never noticed the whole Magritte inspired stuff during the King's Cross sequence for example. Still, I do miss Neil and Chris' commentary, on how Neil dealt with the cobra for example.
