Re: Will "Electric" receive a Grammy nomination?

This is not a surprise. Pet Shop Boys are a non-entity in the U.S. The only way they were going to get nominated is if someone pulls out of a hat at random the names of groups who made an album this year to get a list of the finalist. This thing is a popularity contest.

Re: GQ magazine Germany - December 2013

Here is a translation (of the article, not the side quotes or the daily routine on the last page). Please understand that this is a translation. The German is full of words that do not exist in English. I have no idea what was actually said in the interview. PATRONS OF POP Legends as guests at the G...

Re: The "Electric" Survivor Challenge - Round 2

If I didn't know better, I would think the voters are deciding on "What are your TWO favourite tracks," given that at this point Vocal is about to be eliminated, and Thursday is not far behind. I supposed though this is all strategic anti-votes. Oh the politics, hehe.

Re: Inside A Dream - Video

Well done - I like the quick cuts in the middle of the song - in rhythm with the music, that was excellent. The lines of the poems inserted into the story didn't work me though - they disconnected me from the story (maybe if they were flashed on and off like in a horror movie, they would have been m...

Re: Thursday in at #40 in the UK midweek charts

Not so fast, up to No. 27!!! as of now![/quote] that includes it's final week on the Radio 2 playlist - the airplay chart is based on audience reach rather than number of plays, and with Radio 2 being the most popular station in the UK it has a disproportionate impact on the airplay chart[/quote] We...

Re: Thursday in at #40 in the UK midweek charts

Thursday is #26 in the UK Air Charts for this week. That's better than I expected, given that it fell from #27 to #32 from Thursday to Friday. I don't see that translating into top 40 in sales but at least some positive news.

Re: Thursday in at #40 in the UK midweek charts

Giving how quickly the Thursday EP is fading (now around No. 131) from the UK itunes chart, I am pessimistic about Thursday's chances to stay in the Top 40. :(

Re: New Thursday radio edit

With precisely 10 plays by Radio 2 it is at #60 in the UK Airplay Chart this week. No other radio station has touched it though, which was the case with Bourgeois as well. One might think that those who have heard it on Radio 2 and liked it might have sought it out on iTunes. But no, not a sign of ...

Re: airplay vs sales

LIBC went as high as 31, I think, on the UK Radio Airplay chart. Here in the U.S., the last single I have even heard on the radio was Where the Streets Have No Name. I think that came on once on Live 105 in the San Francisco area. Before that, I heard So Hard maybe twice. So as far as U.S. goes, the...
