Re: "Rating Project" poll on most recent PSB tracks ends soon

Oh, I thought it was biweekly. I got to hurry, then.


EDIT: Now I've heard them through once more, and I've casted my votes. Thanks for waiting:)

(I'm not particulary impressed by these songs. I find only "Angelig thug" to be (slighty) above PSB-average. The rest of them are below.)

Depeche have only ever got as high as 4.
Wow! Even lower than OMD's peak (#3). Surprising!

Re: PSB Summer Songs

Four years have passed since I made the list in the opening post. PSB have, in my opinion, released two obvious summer songs since 2016. Those are:

- An open mind
- Happy people

Re: Which song Pet Shop Boys could cover in the future?

It should be something completely unexpected and un-PSB-esque (like they did in 2013 with "The last to die" by Bruce Springsteen): - Any Pink Floyd-song (f.ex."Money" or "Wish you were here") - Any blackmetal-song (f.ex. "Chainsaw Gutsfuck" by Mayhem or "The Pentagram Burns" by Satyricon) - Any hiph...

Re: The best remix ever

There should be a poll for this. A series of polls. With qualification rounds, quarterfinals, semifinals and a grand final. A process lasting approx. one year. Something to do while we wait for the covid vaccine.

Re: Annually 2020 + Free CD

- the dialogue cut from "You are the one" is from Call Me By Your Name. Originally they wanted a dialogue from Fellini's 8.5, but that didn't go through because of copyrights and the owners not wanting to do it, so they asked the people form Call Me By Your Name and they agreed. Unfortunately, that...

Re: Annually 2020 + Free CD

They should do the same with the "I don't wanna" single.

Re: New single - I don't wanna

( Setting the bar as an "edit" rather than being remixed for the single version... ) Arguably, Being Boring is. And, to my ears, I Don't Know What You Want But I Can't Give It Anymore definitely is. Yes, I was refering to mere edits - not remixes ending up as single versions. I agree with you on "I...

Re: New single - I don't wanna

This radio edit is better than the album version.

Has that happened before?

Re: New single - I don't wanna

I'll try summon up some energy to pre-order this record. I feel quite reluctant to it.

Re: Rating Project poll for Hotspot and its b-sides (so far)

No, I understand that obviously, but I think it's futile and pointless... ya know, guessing. Yes, guessing the exact points is pointless, but I think I'm into something when it comes to guessing the internal rank among the tracks in question. I think, based on the writings/reviews/reactions on this...

Did you really... try and guess the ratings up to a thousandth? Never seen a sillier endeavour.
That's because Wayne Studer operates his ratings in one thousands.
