Re: Pet Shop Boys Inspiration - a playlist

I'm just making my way through it at the moment and enjoying it immensely. Another oddity is that for me it skips 'La Isla Bonita' because it says it's not available. However if I go to the album that it's from 'Celebration (Belgium)', I can play it ok from there. Very odd. Yes, something odd was g...

Re: Pet Shop Boys Inspiration - a playlist

You left out Peter Gunn by Art Of Noise between 'I Like Chopin' and 'I Am The Walrus' https://open.spotify.com/track/5AP5fad3HD8dQpdrBWOw3K?si=9o3Q3sxYTEuPja7TC9Nm7w That’s odd - it was showing on my Mac but wouldn’t play and didn’t show up on my Phone. Should be fixed now. Please let me know if an...

I knew they liked it:

Thriller – Michael Jackson
I think they just namecheck the song because the Elysium backing singers also sang on that track.

From memory I think they say they chose J.J. Jeczalik to produce Opportunities because they liked his work on Kiss Me.

I've compiled them into a single Spotify playlist which you should hopefully be able to find here: https://open.spotify.com/user/1173621365/playlist/0f164AbHQBzb4Cpl4uK2aZ If someone can think ...

Re: Reissues project

Hello... My train of thought has recently been derailed so I'm asking for some clarification. Are the re-issues of the first set of Further Listening remastered...or just a reissue of the original release? I'll buy them if they are remastered...but not if it's just a reissue. I'd probably sell my o...

Re: Pet Shop Boys on Youtube

My friend has recently uploaded some piano / vocal live recordings to youtube, including some PSB rated. I'm sure he'd appreciate some views and positive feedback: Getting away with it https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=3&v=TrWRX8Qu-i8 Love comes quickly https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lB5...

Re: Marriage: Neil Tennant and Mark Farrow discuss the imagery of Pet Shop Boys

I quite like him. Both he and Mark seem to be cut from similar cloth and fly a little in the face of stereotypical ideas of what a designer might be like.
