Re: Their saddest songs

I don’t think anyone’s mentioned Your funny uncle

Pain bleeds through the LIAC lyrics

And Chris’ refrain of “I’m all alone again” on Excuses is absolutely heartbreaking

Re: 10 Hour DJ livestream of PSB on 2 May

Both shows were amazing - thanks Remark and DJBoy!! I caught nearly the entire 10 hours (!), once I managed to work out how to use Twitch We didn’t really a need it, but a great reminder of the sheer depth of quality music the boys have produced.

Re: Paninaro Magazine

Love the cover, but the mag does seem quite heavy on the hooligan element of the casual scene

Re: PSB - Vaccination

In the UK we all have a NI number, a Passport number, our phones track our every move. I think Big Brother is already here, if a vaccine passport can allow a return to normalcy, is it an issue? I understand the hesitancy around the powers that might come with it, but I don’t buy into the whole Agend...

Re: Being Boring At 30

Being Boring is art. By this point, they had mastered the trick of producing superior throwaway pop music designed for maximum commercial impact. Being Boring flopped as a single because it wasn’t remotely throwaway. It was still superior (and how), but it was art. The fact that they were surprised...

Re: When you stop liking the music as much

Obviously there’s no obligation to buy PSB releases but it’s somewhat ironic that even in the age of free music online, one of the few site admins has not even heard the latest album from the artist the site is dedicated to! Steve - Hotspot is not one of my favourite albums but Willo the wisp, Hopin...

Re: Single versions

Re: A New (and Temporary) Pet Shop Boys Trivia Game!

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
