I know time files, but I don't really think 1993 - 27 years ago - counts as "recent"... :lol:
Believe me, it's recent.

I'm guessing Kings Cross is the strongest track by far, but Vocal would get a strong rating? Go West too, but it's maybe worn thin these days? Oh and lets not forget Jealousy - whoa!

Any particular favourites, anyone?
Anybody not saying King's Cross is not a real PSB fan.

Re: I wish PSB re-create the song "Pet Shop Boys" with proper lyrics

Or we should make Bobby O release the 20 minute version of Pet Shop Boys.
I always thought/imagined the lyrics were "Pppppet Shop Boys, I need no choice"

Re: Famous at 30 plus

Did Neil ever talk about how he felt becoming famous at the "mature" age of 31? It's an age where people in most cases settle down and don't assume they're ever gonna be famous, that that ship has sailed. Being famous must be feeling surreal, and all the more surreal when you're past 30. If I becam...

Re: Crazy productivity

Low quality?! Are you really PSB fans? One has to find the difference between taste and objectivity. There is no lack of quality regarding these tracks. I may not quite like Soup or one of the Agenda tracks but I have nothing to complain about the quality.

The PSB-Fancy-Bobby O-connection

I've tried to solve this riddle for some years now but I've quite not succeeded yet. The PSB collaboration with Bobby O is fairly straightforward by now but there's a mix of the original version of One more chance which credits "Tess" as the remixer. Tess is also credited for a ZYX-records megamix. ...

Re: Obsessed with anything unreleased?

I’d love for the Bobby O demos / album prototype to get a proper release. And in addition to the Bobby O demo of “In the club or in the queue,” there’s a version they worked on in 1999, too. Yes, it's crazy that there is a whole 1984-album (maybe even two) lying there somewhere and probably a 1983 ...

Re: Memories of PSB live in 2002

This is the tour they should've made into an album, a great single disc live album. It would've given them a lot of cred. It would've been more satisfying than all those musicals and ballets etc

Re: The lost single

my favorite live version of west end girls has to be the release tour where they did a kinda spacey version of it with guitar. That's exactly one of the reasons why they should've released it as single along with a full live album, a proper 2002 concert album (one disc only), not just some recordin...
