Re: Neil's Worst Lyrics

I would have preferred that "The Night I Fell in Love" had never been written. It does not have any particular lines that I hate, I just find the whole concept of the song to be ill-conceived. It's a joke that's not funny. Oh *shock horror* Neil and Chris don’t cater to your taste, boo-hoo. Gotta l...

Re: Get it online - speculation/review thread

I may be right, I may be wrong... Entschuldigung would not have been misplaced on Electric. Amazing, simply amazing and, imo, could have made a smashing single. The sounds, chords and that gorgeous Neil voice *speechless* I really have to censor myself here but this is the PSB that unmoors moi. :mr...

Re: "Love is a bourgeois construct" - 3rd single from "Elect

Apparently not! "Ik nikt schprecken Deutsch..." That pronounciation is not acceptable, Neil! This is supposed to be "Deutsch", not Dutch! How about you clean your ears? That’s exactly how Neil pronounces it: ‘Deutsch’. Gawd, people really will moan just about anything on here. PSB keep delivering q...

Re: Interesting read about PSB ex-manager...Tom Watkins...

Isn't he the person who wanted Chris out of it?......sure I read that somewhere! Indeed. But Neil, being a loyal friend, refused to dump Chris for the sake of novelty, convenience or personal gain. You want to know the true measure of a human being, look at what type of friend he is. Rare breed thi...

Great stuff, innit! Thanks for the link.

And yes, it would be simply stupendous to get hold of an all-things-PSB type of archive thang.

Re: What if Neil & Chris...

What is the point? This suggestion smacks of hiding or being embarrassed, even ashamed, of who they are. They should stand by what they do (whatever direction it be) and who they are. That is integrity, in my book. No apologies for what they stand for, needed. If people (or radio stations)don't 'wan...

Re: Did Ego Music "ruin" Elysium?

No, Requiem & Hold On are what ruin the album. PS: Neil didn't want Winner on the album but Chris and subsequently Dawson were for its inclusion. Didn't Chris admit responsibility in a Literally (if memory serves correctly) anyway. Oh and Invisible is one of the best things they ever wrote. Elysium ...

Re: PET SHOP BOYS - ELECTRIC UK NUMBER 3

Well done to Neil & Chris. They deserve a top spot - wish it had been number one, as they bloody well deserve. Oh and so much for the naysayers, all the doom & gloom not to mention the relentless negativity some 'fans' have been spewing for decades now. ooh, they should call it a day , ooh they can'...

Worth trying! Still, Neil does indulge in quite a bit of thigh-slapping, which might be a bit problematic whilst driving. Could do with some sort of straightjacket as an alternative though.

Re: Electrospective CD - help me fill the CD!

In no particular order:

Forever in love
Radiophonic
The boy who couldn't keep his clothes on...
In the night
Why don't we live together (original new york mix)


Good luck driving with some of these on. I would not be able to refrain from jiggling around and subsequently crashing the car.
