Re: Where is the oddest public place you've heard a PSB song?

Heard It Doesn't Often Snow At Christmas at Woolworths yesterday here in Melbourne Australia.🎅☃️🎄 Always a thrill to hear PSB in public! And I consider It Doesn't Often as a rare oddity of a PSB song. Actually it must be heard by a lot of people. https://i.ibb.co/dGzS3z6/psb-popular-releases.png I ...

Re: US TOUR

San Francisco was sublime.

Neil was in a terrific mood.

Incredibly responsive crowd.

Dominion Dancing had everyone singing.

Wanted: PSB RIAA Award Gold or Platinum Records

Hello all!

Title says it all!

I saw a PSB RIAA Gold record for Actually a couple years ago on Ebay and I kick myself for not getting it.

I have quite a collection of RIAA awards but PSB continues to allude me.

Please reach out if you have one and are willing to part with it!

Best!

Her favorite is Domino Dancing. She rather liked The Way it Used To Be and What Have I Done to Deserve This.

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. For 45 years their cultures were submerged. Prior to WWII they generally had strong religious institutions ...

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...

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.

Did they announce Top Ten hits only?
