Re: Top 20 - 80s Duo (Classic Pop Magazine)

Tears for Fears at 2??!? Really? Top ten at best. ++++++++++ Other than the fabulous "shout", I've never found any charm in them. Roxette reached several times to the top of the US charts, It Must Have Been Love being their trade mark song (Pretty Woman soundtrack). And it is really fabul...

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Chart History

But 27 million is not much at all in number of streams, especially not for a big 80s hit like Always on my mind The thing is a proper version of the video wasn't uploaded until 5 years ago or so on Youtube, for example. I still think it is blocked in the USA or somewhere because Youtube views had d...

Re: Hating PSB

Wow, people who like PSB don't like music?? It's hard not to take the bait. I mean there's so much substance in PSB's music. So many layers, indirect irony and hidden subtext. References to other songs, other genres. The perfect inflections in Neil's deliveries, matching the meaning of the words. H...

Re: Greatest PSB hits according to YouTube

By the way, Actually is very popular in Nepal (number one for a few days and top three for a few weeks). There must be a reason for it. Maybe Buddha priests blessed it publicly?

Re: Greatest PSB hits according to YouTube

Interesting that the song which was the end of imperial phase, is the third most viewed video. Also it was only a 3 pointer on Pointless yesterday https://i.ibb.co/RDgGKNq/db.jpg Nickname is right. It is extremely popular in Latin Countries because of both the video and Latin sound and Latin countr...

Re: Who PSB haven't collaborated with

I guess Tiesto or Calvin Harris is too popular on their own to work with them; I believe their image is strongly built on high charting fluffly pop songs backed up with hi-energy videos soaked up with sexy young boys and girls and they mostly work with teenage idols. PSB are too old and too leftfiel...

Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR: set list speculation. What are PSB going to play?

Of course it was a 'hit', you clod. Not a massive hit but it made the top twenty. And it was a big radio hit. You can have a lot of exporsure but general public people didn't like the song. Wasn't there a web site dedicated to Being Boring and that lasted hundreds of pages? Is it still online? For ...

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

Australians continue to surprise me. My Beatiful...is holding onto top 30 in charts (actually it is number 16 at the moment) and Discography was 38 (53 now). I thought PSB have dwindled into nothing there. They surprised me in the past as well when Absolutely Fabulous hit number 2 (Boys' biggest hit...

Has the commercial been discontinued? Within one week, Opportunities spiralled down in the chart very fast.

Re: Their saddest songs

It Couldn't Happen Here. Nothing beats it when I want to torment myself psychologically. I sometimes turn it off at half because I am sure I will start to cry as the orchestral sounds soar. I hate crying. ----- Another one on par is Discoteca. "I don't speak in anger Though the chances that I'v...

Re: It’s A Sin - Years & Years cover

The first listen: The show is amazing. Performances are very good...but the version...it sounded it lacked the acidic bite and crystal-clear sharpness of the original. Not a big fan of it (at the moment).
