Re: Hotspot - Further Listening

For me the primary and almost sole appeal for the FL albums is the exclusive tracks. Super FL and Hotspot FL if they ever happen better have a handful of unreleased tracks and demos. I already listen to music on streaming services, so adding existing b-sides to a CD is practically pointless. For ex...

Re: Neil at the RYOJI IKEDA exhibition in London 20, May 2021

all I was thinking when I saw the pic was I thought his mask would have been a bit more fabulous
those Magoo glasses will help him also...I guess studies show people who wear some sort of eye protection are a bit more protected.

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

Thanks I hadnt heard some of these, I hate when I hear an instrumental I love...such as the beautiful laundrette tune...because I wonder what it would have been like if it had singing......its some nice dark sounding techno!

Re: Will UNITY TOUR be delayed or canceled?

I am fully vaccinated, and I do trust the science....its just that I feel we are just about out of the tunnel and theres a sense of not wanting to push it too early. I think its not just the vaccine we need for total normality...its effective treatments... and I hear there is some early at least, go...

Re: Will UNITY TOUR be delayed or canceled?

Where I live they just told us employees we dont have to wear a mask at work. you'd think people would be beside themselves with joy yet, everyone is still wearing one...this bodes kind of bad for concerts IMO. even though vaccinated, people still are uneasy.

Re: Their saddest songs

a weird one that I thought was sad and funny at the same time...beautiful people.. "perfect home and perfect kids, not a life lived on the skids" I laughed out loud when I first heard that line. kind of funny the person hopes for a certain kind of life, but the possibility of a life on the...

Re: The PSB vault

in a weird sort of way box sets with loads of unreleased songs and mixes/alternate versions are kind of sad. I feel like the artist has then given totally of everything they have, and they have no more surprises. but I still want one!

Re: Heart: ¿vocals from Pavarotti?

while I am not a huge fan of madonna, I would have to say heart is tailor made for her. its totally the type of tune she would do, and do really good in the 80's.

I'm still waiting on China, Mid-life crisis and she's in love with the man she married". theres a bunch of unreleased songs we had heard of thru interviews....and its possible to easily think if the songs were held back and unreleased they must be terrible , but the ones I had heard of.....when...

Re: Interesting bits in Annually

I am glad about the comment the new songs by and large arent relating to recent times. I hope they totally hop scotch over this miserable and grey era and move on to other topics. although I think Neil in his "integral and we're all criminals now" leanings would have something to say about...

Re: Cricket Wife ratings

Another GREAT set of lyrics by Neil, and the music in certain segments is actually really beautiful and moving especially when Neil weaves his vocals over it. it gets a tad too whimsical for me in certain parts, but overall I love this. these guys have zero fear of experimenting and giving us things...

Re: Cardi B tells guest he looks a Pet Shop Boy

I’m wondering if one of the writers fed her that line. I mean, given her age and cultural background and the Boys’ pitiful profile here it’s hard to imagine her having their name on the tip of her tongue. I don’t even think many 25 year old gay men in US even know of the PSB. I’m 41 and I’m on the ...
