Re: Ooh, Gary Davies - vote PSB

Wow. Solid top 20. I'm ok with where Actually placed as I don't think its the boys best album anyway, (Please obviously is) and the others in the list are definitely brilliant albums. I have most (not all) of them and they rain over most albums that have been issued since. One point about Gary Davie...

Re: What would you think a future PSB's album should sound like in order to reinvent themselves?

In a way I’m in that camp, as I believe the quality, scope, song writing and production have deteriorated since then. Not a surprise I hasten to add. I often wonder why ? I think this is actually several intersecting. things. The best period for pop music is always when you were young. There's no g...

Yes, its not 1987-1988 anymore ! Move On !! I couldn't agree more. But for some it will forever be 1987 - 1988... :wall: :wall: :wall: In a way I’m in that camp, as I believe the quality, scope, song writing and production have deteriorated since then.

Re: Which song Pet Shop Boys could cover in the future?

I think they should cover ‘when do I get to sing my way’ by the Sparks

I mean it’s practically a PSB song anyway ( with a nod to cut copy) and the video is one of my all time favourites

And Christi Haydon (the drummer) is utterly gorgeous in the video !!!!!

Consider that: Out of the top 100 number ones of all time ... not one ( of their 4 number ones) makes the list Hmmmmmppppphhhhhh It will be a sad day :-( Lets hope I’m being too ...

Unless there’s a missing S or breaking news of the PSB splitting !!

Re: The best remix ever

There are so many great mixes out there. I do think the boys have been spoilt royally with the quality of the YouTube mixes done unofficially, which have often been far better than the versions put out by the boys. I often listen to a playlist of remixes including Jcrz - more than a dream (30’ neour...
