Re: Did they ever comment on whether the song I Get Along is about a specific relationship?

It’s about Tony Blair and Peter Mandelson relationship after the Prince of Darkness had been forced out of another role. I didn't know that. I knew about "I'm With Stupid" being about Blair. The line "you'd much rather be with rock royalty than with someone like me" makes sense ...

Did they ever comment on whether the song I Get Along is about a specific relationship?

Would be interested if anyone knows the answer to this. I always thought the lyrics seem incredibly specific, particularly this:

"Now I know you'd much rather be
With rock royalty
Instead of someone like me
The big boys are back and we need them, you said"

Re: Pastoral Pet Shop Boys

I'm not sure if the Boys are ever going to get more pastoral than Burning the Heather, but who knows.

Re: How can you expect to be taken seriously?

I've thought for a while that a U2/PSB collaboration would be amusing...some of U2's 1990s work was influenced by the Pet Shop Boys ethic...but I suspect that ship has sailed, U2 seem to have renounced their irony phase. Come to think of it I remember Chris saying in an interview that he didn't much...
