Re: West End girls: Reaction Video

It's really hard to believe to me that people around his 30's "never heard about Pet Shop Boys". They really live in a bubble if that´s the real case... :eh: Nah, just American. Remember, they mostly disappeared from the mass pop scene by 1990. They have had a presence, a very good presen...

Re: Both Madonna and Neil have got it wrong

I heard it, too. Well, Neil is right then. "Ik ben droeving" is wrong in German because it isn't German. :D That would be "Ich bin traurig". I believe that is Dutch. For "I am sad." Ich bin traurig is "I am tired," in German, so I wonder if there is something...

Re: Remembering Go West because of this

Speaking from a purely political and historical point of view, and mind you I am an American, but it is no surprise that the nations formerly behind the Iron Curtain demonstrate those numbers.

Re: Could we hope for another PSB transformation and what would it be?

They’re never going to top the charts again. They’ll get a brief mention on the TV news when one or both of them dies. Perhaps a longer mention if they both died in some spectacular way. Lol I know this is kind of morbid but I found your comment really funny. Thank you! I was thinking of some Spina...

I wonder what he drives now...

Jeep Wranglers are so uncomfortable that older gentlemen tend to eschew them.

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

I would be very surprised if they did not play one of their most beloved and acclaimed songs.

Nope, it is still on every hour.

I think it just reached a certain saturation point. It has been overplayed.

Elton John & Years and Years version is number 1. Years and Years version is number 46. PSB version is 52 Shouldn't it be the reverse? :) Their version was No. 1 when it really counted. It is rather amazing that 35 year old song is topping the charts. That has only happened a handful of times, ...
