2) Can you Forgive Her
1) Young Offender

And I wouldn’t argue with that one bit

Re: One Hundred Lyrics

Surely the poem will be

Cloud in a box

It’s the only song that Neil directly said was based on a poem he wrote as a kid

Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

just picked up the limited edition... guess in hindsight it was a bit impulsive. Guess makes up for missing this years ROH performances.

Re: Why do people hate “Before”?

Nothing much to add that hasn’t been said before. Their career low point... extended into Nightlife and Release.

Only saving grace was the B sides were far better than the A sides

Especially the magesterial Delusions of Grandeur

Lyrically up there in their top 20 of all time

Re: Reviving the PSB Song Game

Casanova in hell

Described elsewhere as a massive conceit. I think my favourite version is by Rufus on Concrete. Reminds me of Love is a Catastrophe. Songs that may be clever but I've never clicked with. Not horrendous by any degree but not one of their best

Next up: Young Offender
