Re: Dricography: Ranking Nightlife

New York $h1tty Boy- their worst song....or so I thought, until 'The Night I Fell in Love' from their next album. Lean years indeed.

Re: Hypothetical Poll. If Cardi B covers PSB

*Shrugs*. I doubt her fans fit the PSB fan demograph so anything beyond a reference from her on twitter is unlikely. As for Years & Years- they're this season's Hot Chip without the musicality or charm.

Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

''The Night I Fell in Love'' is included !!!!........They clearly didn't see the memo with that song featuring quite prominently on the Boys' 'Worst Songs' thread a few months back.

Re: Why do people hate “Before”?

If rumours of Brexit related songs are to be believed, quite a few fans will look back on Before with a lot more affection and appreciation.

Re: PSB in Select Magazine scans

http://selectmagazinescans.monkeon.co.uk/showpage.php?file=wp-content/uploads/2016/06/albums11.jpg This is such an utter shart review. Anyone who loves Behavior will have a good laugh at this. At least he didn't say a single word about This must be the place, as I don't think I could have handled t...

PSB in Select Magazine scans

Not sure this has been posted on this forum before, but this site has quite a few articles/reviews/interviews with the Boys in Select. For some reason the articles aren't chronological but nevertheless a great resource. The Dec 1990 review of Behaviour is the earliest entry. http://selectmagazinesca...

Re: No HMV art cards!

The HMV art cards issue is a bit like the Smiths' song "I Started Something I Couldn't Finish". Presumably the initial batch of art cards was to encourage sales of the reissues then they realised that the reissues would sell irrespective of having additional memorabilia included.
