Re: Could we hope for another PSB transformation and what would it be?

I’d definitely like to see the return of costumes, in the vein of Very or Nightlife.

Re: Pet Shop Boys and Electronic fact/error

Greetings, It couldn't be copyrighted too. So is the drum/rythmic part-track. So, if someone wanted... they could totally rip off the drum pattern and bassline from say, Blue Monday or West-End Girls, and that's totally allowable? Retro. :) Well the bass can play the melody as well. I think Onzio r...

Re: Pet Shop Boys and Electronic fact/error

Adding a bassline to a song, interestingly, wouldn’t usually translate into a songwriting credit.

Re: Will UNITY TOUR be delayed or canceled?

I’m hoping the boys make a decision soon one way or the other … if it goes ahead I’d like to lock in some flights and accommodation before prices go north I would imagine any decision will be massively out of their hands and will come down to their insurance / their promoter / their management.

Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR: set list speculation. Which songs are PSB going to play?

It is possible though for them to tick all of these boxes and still deliver something new and exciting for fans and casuals alike. There are plenty of rarely performed hits, however you define one. The hints they have dropped suggests this will be a great setlist with lots of under played gems: Drea...

Did they announce Top Ten hits only?
No. “Songs that were hits and songs that should have been hits / sound like hits”.

Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR: set list speculation. What are PSB going to play?

It wasn't a hit. Everybody knows that. A lovely song, everybody loves but a total flop taking into account PSB were still quite popular on that era. And you should try to be educated. If you can't, you shouldn't get into this forum. Well, they played Being Boring on many tours and shows in the past...

Maybe if you look at the timestamp of Jules's comment and then look up the release date for Hotspot the comment might make a bit more sense.

Retro. :)
Although my original post wasn’t about any reissue.

Of course it was a 'hit', you clod. Not a massive hit but it made the top twenty.
And it was a big radio hit.
And a massive legacy hit. Whatever that means.

Re: "My beautiful laundrette" and "Cricket wife" available on streaming

I don’t get music fans that are down on streaming. It doesn’t make sense. I have a big music collection of CDs and vinyl (c2,000 items). I have a large iTunes library (c30,000 track). I also subscribe to Spotify. If I could only have one I would choose Spotify in a heartbeat. What the hell does “own...

Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR: set list speculation. What are PSB going to play?

By the way, if they plan to play the hits in a reverse chronological order. I love the idea of Suburbia almost at the end of the show. It's so anthemic. After I't a Sin, it could sound really fine. I agree; It’s a sin (with new Olly influenced intro), Suburbia (new Stuart Price version) and West En...

Re: Hotspot - Further Listening

Now My Beautiful Laundrette is on Spotify I’ve added this as a Hotspot: Further Listening playlist. I’ve added the Cricket wife single tracks to the end, although it may transpire that these belong to the next album era: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3IN6xAyxofZLMUWmDNsaKK?si=ErzBlNyySlevPv4Jk5D...

Re: "My beautiful laundrette" and "Cricket wife" available on streaming

So there goes the exclusivity of the CW and TBL CDs!! I felt like I had something special with those CDs - that the general public couldn’t have or hear - I had paid a special price to get the exclusive. But now…I don’t have anything special or exclusive as it’s now on general release. Great for pe...

Re: The most D.Guetta or C.Harris-esque PSB track or mix?

I tend to jump to think of some of the Super era remixes... maybe Offer Nissim?
