West End girls: Reaction Video

#1 Post by canveyboy »

Just came across this new reaction video that was posted a couple of days ago. American dude hears the song and sees the video for the first time! Loved this.

Looks like a re-upload. I think he got some videos deleted and he's reuploading them. I saw this one months ago. He also did some other PSB tracks which looks to be gone now.

Its nice to see PSB getting some exposure in these reaction videos. It potentially opens the door to people of a certain age to their brilliance.

Yes, PSB have started to appear in reaction videos. This person has quite a few videos. She likes Domino Dancing, Love Comes Quickly and Heart a lot, but doesn't get West End Girls.

Wow, get a room girl! She really got hot and bothered by "Love Comes Quickly" didn't she?! :lol:

Seriously though, looks like she's a true convert! Great to see.

Sincerely, K.S.O. even did "It even comes as a surprise", a true deep cut.

It can be a little addictive watching these reaction videos but the novelty of some of the earliest ones has worn off for me now. Some posters are finding ways to monetise these and good for them if they are selling their own merchandise. Any trend that's encouraging people to listen to PSB is probably a good thing!

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:
This is not my signature.

She still seems to find It's a Sin uncomfortably controversial.

Nah, just American.

Remember, they mostly disappeared from the mass pop scene by 1990.

They have had a presence, a very good presence in the US with many fans and well known in the electric/dance genre (and 80s music), but if one was not into those genres in general, or around in the late 80s, it is very possible to not have any familiarity with them.

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

Do they work?
Do they have any job?

I understand that these people have a lot of free time to discuss video clips. They sit in front of the computer and watch videos for hours. And who pays taxes for them? And if you blame them for this, they will say that you must be tolerant.
