Not sure why ''It's Alright'' has been neglected on the last few tours. Would make a good track as one of the encores but not a final song.
Agreed.

Re: The irony of Agenda

I’m not sure that being “anti-Trump” makes anyone a “snowflake”.

Re: What is your least favourite EVER Pet Shop Boys song?

"Happiness Is An Option", anyone? On my first date with my now wife, she said (about her previous relationship) “I was just not happy” as we were getting back into my car after dinner somewhere. I played “Happiness is an option” on the CD player. She liked it and went on to buy us tickets to the “N...

Grateful, beyond belief

I’m loving this “Agenda” release. I couldn’t give a rats arse if Neil wants to rant about things that bother him. It’s his and Chris’ art, no one else’s. By all means disagree with his sentiments but do not state that he shouldn’t be political or anything else for that matter. Produce your own art i...

Mine? Boy Strange. x
Noooooo..! I love “Boy Strange”..! I only wish the piano melody at the end went on for an extra minute. If that was the case, it’d make my Top PSB 20.

Beauty is in the eye (ear) and all that jazz..!

Re: Phone Wallpapers

I tend to agree, but it’s still effective. Says everything to me about what a PSB live show is all about...primary colours, shapes, lasers...an assault on the senses (in an amazing way).

My current phone wallpaper. Would love to see what other PSB related wallpapers people have, if indeed you do! Post away..!

Re: The triology and its nfluence on tours (lazers and more lazers)

Yes..! I’d love to think that there’s a pattern! You’re right, Electric Tour was bright and happy, and I remember someone on here saying that “The Electric Tour had lasers, but the Super Tour has more lasers than “The Death Star”” (my most favourite quote from this forum, ever)..! So, the next Tour ...

Re: *Post ROH Spoilers Here ONLY..*

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 line. Though I appreciate the Inner Sanctum concerts for their crowd-pleasing, lasertastic, party vibe, at heart I'm still the moody ...

I'd like to hear the full length version of It's a Sin that they performed at the opening of the BBC concert theatre, and not the cut down version that was broadcast a few days later.
Chris was noodling about at the end for several minutes. :D
Does anyone have a link to this? Sounds great!

Re: One song, then home..!

I’m probably going to get slated for this, but here goes! I’d go for Go West, but not any old version. I’d choose the version that they played at Live 8, in Moscow but minus Sylvia! I love that version. Chris playing piano during the “low key” first bit...the melodic guitar solo/riff...then it goes ...

One song, then home..!

Here’s a question for you all! I remember booking tickets for the Royal Albert Hall charity concert, thinking to myself “I dearly hope that they perform the Introspective version of Left to my own devices”. I also remember thinking, after hearing it, in its full glory, that if I left there and then,...
