Re: Pet Shop Boys Songs That Are The Same Song

The obvious one is Opportunites and In The Night, where they set out with the explicit aim of creating a B-side with the same chords and tempo as the A-side. They didn’t quite succeed (there are chord sequences in Opportunities that don’t appear in In The Night and vice-versa). Add Paninaro as well...

Re: Neil and Chris spotted at the Helsinki Railway station

I can’t believe Chris has got to wheel his own suitcase. How far they have fallen.

I hope for "in bits" whose lyrics cannot be found on the OS.
I’m sure they used to be on there and intriguingly, there is a stub page there: http://petshopboys.co.uk/lyrics/in-bits

Re: *Post ROH Spoilers Here ONLY..*

A Dictator Decides really didn’t work for me, could barely hear the vocal. It was a toilet break opportunity for a number of people. Yes. The Dictator Decides, even though it's relatively new, actually reminds me most of PSB circa Performance. Neil in a costume, arty visuals and an acid house bass ...

It’s certainly a departure from Neil’s previous book: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Core-Logic-Nei ... 0198777892

Re: Why do people hate “Before”?

I listened to Bilingual in its entirety yesterday, the first time in a long, long time. You know what? I really, really liked it. Every single track. It’s a great pop album. Steady on! I love the album but just can't listen to 'Saturday Night Forever'. The chorus is beyond trite. I sincerely enjoy ...

Re: In conversation

Sorry, nothing to do with this, but it’s forever going to be stuck at fifty million records now isn’t it? I mean obviously they’re not going to shift millions more by this stage, but I wonder what the actual figure is. It’s always trotted out as fifty million in these little summaries.

Re: Why do people hate “Before”?

I’m pretty sure Neil's high parts from Love Comes Quickly were performed on a sampler. The “baby” part at the start of the chorus of Why Don’t We Live Together? certainly was because you can hear it on the demo where they're messing around playing it at different pitches. It’s only in later years wh...

Re: 25 years of Can You Forgive Her

Chuffin' ‘eck! How can it be 25 years already?! It only seems like five minutes since I was reminiscing about 25 years of So Hard . Back in those days the first time you heard the new Pet Shop Boys’ single (a big deal even in 1993) was on the radio. The first I heard of Can You Forgive Her? (with a ...
