Re: Decide (Burning the Heather b-side)

Waking up to this devastating news this morning.

To quote “Decide”........”oh, what have we done?”


Brilliant track though. Love how it starts off so simply then ends as a huge euphoric track!

Re: Hotspot Limited Edition

I’ve never seen the point in instrumental versions of songs. If a track is an instrumental originally then cool but if a track is a song with vocals then what’s the point in the instrumental? I never listen to the Elysium instrumentals. I mean if you want to listen to the album, why would you choos...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

I'm not overly optimistic about a song only becoming tolerable after multiple listens. I'm sure if I heard any of the aural graffiti in the charts now I'd almost find it tolerable after several plays. More a sign of familiarity than anything else. Given that we all know Bernard the Heathen now I fe...

Re: HAPPY CHRISTMAS PET SHOP BOYS COMMUNITY

There's a separate YouTube area on the site which you are well aware of and have been told about countless times in the past.. Jesus...give the guy a break, he’s only wishing you a merry Christmas - the least you could do is say it back to him. Christ. Bet you’re fun at Christmas. Merry Christmas N...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

Is the wedding song like bourgeois construct ? It wishes. Honestly, and I hate saying this, as an album track, especially as the closer on THIS album, it’s terrible. If I’d received it as a wedding gift I’d have loved it and jumped up and down on the dance floor to it with my new bride. But I close...

Re: Burning the heather

Must dig out the 12" of Don Juan too - I remember that being a decent extended mix. I really miss those extended 12" mixes of singles. Wish most bands would make them even now. If done well, the pleasure lasts that much longer... OMD have started doing that again now. All 3 singles from their last ...

Re: Burning the heather

Or what about Frankie Knuckles' I Want A Dog on Introspective? Or the Italian Remix of Paninaro on Disco? So many to choose from! Indeed, I want a dog on Introspective is bloody amazing - worth it just for the house piano solo!!! And of course the Disco version of Paninaro but I also love the remix...

Re: Burning the heather

I love it when they do remixes of B-sides. Which begs the question, what is the best official b-side remix? 🤔 I’ve always absolutely loved the ‘rough mix’ of You Know Where You Went Wrong! Classic middle section with Helena’s solo spot! The extended remix of The Resurrectionist is classic. The 12” ...

Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR

I hope they keep the live band from the Super tour because I think those guys really added something to the boys performance. It really enhanced the live feeling and made it feel more real/human or whatever. The multiple keyboard parts, drums etc made for a great live sound.
