Re: Lily Savage (Paul O'Grady) Pet Shop Boys rip-off single.

Oh yeah, I remember this track. When you say it, it really does sound similar to Always and It's a sin. What a cool song, a banger IMO. I'm okay with pastiche songs like this. It's a very natural phenomenon in music. The only time I don't really like it is when an artist gets really popular purely f...

Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...

Looking forward to it, both the full announcement next week and the CD release of this new track. (CD release of the Lockdown mix of West End girls is nice too) I like that they're still working with Mark Farrow and Pete Gleadall. No reason not to. :) Has to be one of the longest Pet Shop Boys songs...

Re: Pet Shop Boys Discord

What's going on. I joined the group, but was seemingly removed. I can't join now.
I didn't even get to post anything there.

Re: DREAMWORLD Greatest Hits Tour RESCHEDULED until 2022

What would be nice, in my opinion, is if they aimed to tour the places that have Covid under control. We're already having live concerts here in Australia. They were meant to come here but as typical we're the bottom rung of places to perform at for PSB. Honestly I have been reading that Covid won't...

Re: Russell T Davis: It's A Sin

I actually like the cover version. Even if it's a bit lifeless.

I think the only negative is it makes PSB's version more obscure. Look at this image I saw on a news site:

They make it out like people would only know of Years & Years' version of the song.

Re: Discovery 1994 - DVD/CD-Release

A bit useless. We've already got an official release of this. My laserdisc copy is fine, and the audio quality is already lossless. We'll see if the picture quality is any better in the official DVD, but it's apparently shot on standard definition tape so it can't be much better. Does it really not ...

Re: Pointless

LOL I thought from the title this would be some negative posting. What a silly name for a game show. Anyway so the context of this thread is some PSB questions were used on a quiz show. Personally I don't care. This is akin to a small group of strangers discussing PSB amongst themselves, it doesn't ...

Re: News: "Chris and Neil have been at their homes, writing new songs and working on music for a new theatre production"

I hope they have enjoyed some time to relax, though I would like a new album asap, goes without saying. I agree! Give us an Electric to 2020's Elysium. Those two albums were 10 months apart. Or look at the imperial phase in the 80's, a new album every year for 3 years in a row. They were already wo...

Re: Happy new year

Talking about the UK? Don't forget the internet is global. Here in Australia they've eased restrictions and it's much more "happy people living in a sad world" than "is it enough to live and hope that one day we'll be free". Though just today after 60 days clean they've detected ...

Re: PSB won to the Most Played Christmas Song of the 21 st century

This is just a radio play of 40 popular Christmas songs. The mention of PSB at the end is a throwaway remark that Fairytale Of New York (feat. Kirsty MacColl) - The Pogues didn't reach number 1 in 1987 because Always On My Mind was number 1. PSB didn't win anything, and there's no mention of It Does...

Re: It Doesn't Often Appear At Christmas

I heard It Doesn't Often Snow At Christmas today at Woolworths! (In Melbourne Australia)
How wonderful, even the spoken bit at the end. :D
I feel like I finally "get" the song now. It's not meant to be great, but a cheerful and ironic dabble in the tradition.
