It’s one of my favourite OMD songs btw
Same here! It is one of my all-time OMD favorites. Melody is excellent and the song in general is beautiful and melancholic. And it’s true, that talking middle eight always reminded me of Domino Dancing. :)

Re: New Pet Shop Order Boys

Got my LA tickets, but that was stressful!😄😄 I failed 2 times, but third time was able to get even better seats as probably some other poor soul’s transaction failed.😂😂 What an amazing event this is and to think that UK fans don’t even get the opportunity to see two legendary UK bands makes me feel...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

A week on and I think I love this album. I like everything on it including Wedding In Berlin. It's the best album since Yes for me. Me too. Me three!😁 I need to live few months with this album, but it has potential to be in my top 5 PSB albums ever. It’s very consistent! Highs are not as high as fo...

Re: Wedding in Berlin: revival of interest?

It is the weakest song on Hotspot, but I do listen to it. It is a sort of guilty pleasure for me.😁 Not quite as good as Happiness, but I like the beat on it and the bassline. With Decide instead of Wedding in Berlin this album would have been one of their best ever albums, but even now it’s in the u...

Re: Hotspot reviews

That Pitchfork reads more like a disguised homophobic attack. Like, "you were closeted once and I didn't like you, and now I choose to criticise you for being closeted then and critisise you for being out now" Anyway. Most the album isn't sexually specific. Yep! Just read their Behaviour review... ...

Yeah! Excellent writers, but as a rule they write shitty, irritating PSB album reviews. :wall:

Re: Best option for 4 th single?

Happy People is the most obvious choice and for me so far the highlight of Hotspot. It may change over time as I live with the album for a while... It has hints of Pop Kids in it, but it’s better. Lovely combination of happy-sad, with amazing euphoric middle eight.👍

Re: Happy people

Absolutely!👍 This song is perfect for extended remix! That middle 8 is the single most thrilling part of Hotspot. Pure magic! It would be a shame it is not milked more in the extended mix.😉

Re: Decide (Burning the Heather b-side)

I don’t understand how can PSB not only not include such an universal, melodic and emotional song such as Decide on the new album, but actually demote it to merely a B-side to a 7 inch single 🤦‍♂️, while releasing Dreamland, Burning the heather and Monkey business as singles.☹️ I know it’s their tas...

This is a nice remix. It shows how a little change can make a big difference.
Yep, It's a really good one! :up: And I've just heard his remix of Heart on Soundcloud. It's even better, but then starting material is already amazing. Still, he managed to enhance it even more. :clap:

Re: The lost single

With the current 50th anniversary of Abbey Road, I am reminded that Here Comes the Sun was never released as a single in the UK. This seems preposterous - I've been aware of it my whole life from airplay and it is The Fabs' most popular track on Spotify with just the 360 million plays to date. It's...

Re: Poll ends soon on your favorite PSB songs from their "Actually era"

My God, could there be a more difficult question! I mean look at these songs... How many musical artists in the history could have created/recorded this amount of incredible songs in their whole lifetime? :)

I will build a great, great wall of prose about this EP, and I will have Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.
