Re: BBC4 Top of the Pops Repeats

It looks like Mike Smith’s run on TOTP and the Imperial Phase, end about the same time.

Re: *YOUR* Perfect PSB 'Best of' Album

For my perfect album, i'm going to forget about the hits. This would be my answer to anyone who tells me that PSB lost it years ago, and haven't brought out anything worth listening to since the 90s. Side A 1. Fugitive (Richard X Extended Mix) 2. Burn 3. The Way It Used To Be 4. Minimal (Album Versi...

Re: BBC4 Top of the Pops Repeats

Got to say after watching these recent repeats of TOTP, the top 40 was terrible a round the time of West End Girls, this weeks episode’s top 40 was especially bad. I just know it’s gonna take all the will I have, for me not to kick my TV in, when I see what stopped Love Comes Quickly, from charting ...

Re: PSB reference on Now That's What I Call Music article.

PSB related Now appearances worth a mention

Disappointed (Electronic) - Now 22
West End Girls (East 17) - Now 25 (actually probably not worth a mention)
Absolutely Fabulous (Absolutely Fabulous) - Now 28
No Regrets (Robbie Williams) - Now 41
The Loving Kind (Girls Aloud) - Now 72

Re: Screen Shot Your Phone! (What you listening too?)

I agree the new Arctic Monkeys album is pretty good. Loving the uproar from all the Parka Monkeys on Twitter, expecting them to release an album full of Mardy Bums every time. This is the album I’m listening to at the moment. Its got to be one of my favourite Pop albums of the decade. It’s well over...

Re: New magazine: Classic Pop Presents PSB

I really don’t want to live in a world where Classic Pops Top 40 essential Pet Shop Boys singles doesn’t include It’s Alright and I wouldn’t Normally do this kind of thing, but Winner and Numb make the list!

It really needs a PSB mix.
A while back I got a like on Twitter from Tracey Thorn, when I tweeted something similar about a PSB remix.

Re: BBC4 Top of the Pops Repeats

Episodes with Mike Smith go up to 1988, just as the imperial phase is ending, which is bloody typical!

Re: BBC4 Top of the Pops Repeats

Yeah, I've been waiting for these episodes for a while, if only for the "context" value of watching them as part of the pop world of the time. I'm sure Mike Smith will ensure, from the grave, that some PSB appearances do not make the cut and our old friend Jonathan King will probably cost us a few ...
