Yep, I thought exactly the same. You hear it perfectly now.

Before, I could have sworn 'Soho' was in there!

Re: 80sography Stephen Hague podcasts

I wonder if the girl in question ever realised she'd made it onto a number one song, and if so why she's never said anything.

I also wonder the same thing about the bloke doing the train announcement in 'Two divided by zero'. Famous, but never knew, perhaps!

Re: 80sography Stephen Hague podcasts

The original street recording that includes the 'forever' quote plays at around 55:00 on the 86-87 podcast. Amazing to hear it clearly and really hear what it says after 36 years! I would never have correctly guessed what was said & recorded!

Re: Hating PSB

I've never understood how people can feel uncomfortable (in the sense of their own homophobia) around PSB, but yet can love a band like Queen (for example). Freddie was much, much, much more 'out' (and outrageous) than PSB ever were or have been, yet such people will happily nod their head to Queen,...

80sography Stephen Hague podcasts

Top two in this link are PSB heavy. I've not listened properly yet, but I gather they include the answer to the 'what does the recorded girl say at the start of West End girls?' question, which I've wondered about for years. I've read the answer and now know. All I could ever hear was 'forever'. htt...

Re: Discography 12'' boxed set

That's great work. Beautiful. I'd buy that if it were put out by PSB to get some mint new vinyl and sleeves for 30+ year old records.

Re: ID version of West End Girls

I didn't listen to the end, but it certainly sounds like (parts of) Bobby O to me.

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Cup Cake

Scraping the bottom of the barrel, keep it on social media. "hey guys, I printed a dot png of the Pet Shop Boys, hope you like." Just because you don't like it doesn't mean people can't post it. A post like this will find its fans by way of replies, if people aren't interested they won't ...

Re: Wanna buy Chris Lowe’s car?

About 16 or 17 years ago, this car was in the workshop of the BMW dealership I was working at in Warwick.

Chris wasn't the owner at that point though, but the car must still have the same owner as then as it says they've owned it for 22 years. It's also for sale in Warwick.

Re: Ski sunday West End girls analysis

Great video!

If it's him (almost certain it is) I've seen some of his other videos. One where Adamski turns up half way through his remaking of 'Killer' is very entertaining.

Re: Their saddest songs

There are quite a few sad ones, most, if not all are already listed here. I can't remember crying at any PSB song though with the exception of 'For all of us'. Why I cried, I don't actually know.
