Not trying to make this sound a downer but have you been, are you or will you ever be content with the catalogue of Pet Shop Boys?
I for one would love to see them continue to do what they do best for the foreseeable future but realistically the time will come when Chris unplugs his keyboard &...
I just hope that the third Stuart Price album is not followed by yet-another-banging-lasers-three-year-tour, because I'd love to see them channel their resources into a sustained period of recording.
It's been probably discussed before, but does anyone else find the Elysium era vocals particularly strange? I know they were going for a smooth sound, but it ended up sounding clunky and weird on that area, a bit like the 1989 tour thing with the black backing singers doing all the harmonies. Been...
On a related subject, I don't like the way Neil's vocals on the last two albums have the deep intake of breath before each line. I'm thinking of The Pop Kids in particular. You don't hear that as much on earlier releases.
Since 2011 BBC4 has been airing Top of the Pops episodes, in chronological order from 1976 onwards. This week the episode originally aired on 08 August 1985 will be shown, which means PSB'S first appearence from November 1985 is just around the corner, and from that point they will be making...
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...
King's Cross is devastating -- in the good way. Just so powerful and emotional. I was too young at the time, but it always makes me think of those images from the black and white video with Chris in the tube station and the city being savaged by the AIDS crisis... x
I've been reading other posts talking about this track, so we are going to create a post for it and free another posts related to the new stuff.
Sorry to bring back an old thread but the most embarrassing PSB track has made me question why so many die hard fans on here loathe Winner ? For me it's one of their best songs from the last decade; a gloriously melodic and uplifting song with an upbeat message and - back in the Imperial Phase -...
I think it's obvious PSB are trying to follow a similar concept in their last albums. I mean, electronic pop music, disco and more or less modern sound. Looks like the three albums are going to follow this way. Of course, there is a paralelism in the sound concert and visual concept with the...
Just thinking! A triangle has 3 sides & it is the 3rd album, so maybe triangles will be the shape :think:
Over yonder on another thread there is a great cry about New York city boy and Hold On being embarrassing.
But really, please allow me to try to explain...if you're around people who like harder music, or rap, etc, most PSB sounds very embarrassing. Left To My Own Devices is fab, but if I play it for a non-pop...
I regularly drive down the street with What Keeps Mankind Alive booming with a subwoofer, all windows open.
Hahahahaha. Its dreadful and should have been on the other list, I hate it that much I had eradicated from my memory.
The final results are in for my poll of the past two weeks, in which I asked my site visitors whether they were planning to buy (or had already pre-ordered) Neil Tennant's upcoming book One Hundred Lyrics and a Poem . And the response that received the most votes was:
* Yes, I'm planning to buy...
Maybe Neil's poem is about your polls, Wayne! Check the thread title!
Oops! Thanks for catching that careless mistake on my part, now corrected!
Their greatest hits both have the word west in common. West End girls and Go West. If they release another ditty with that word in the title, they're gonna enter another imperial phase. :dance: :drool:
New single by Pet Shop Boys and Go West:
Go West featuring A Man could get awested (feat. Kanye West)
