Re: Odds that Chris/Neil read this forum?

They have seen the forum. Neil has described it as "bitchy" in the past, (which I don't disagree with at times).
I doubt they'd take advice from us, didn't Neil say he reads Facebook comments sometimes?

Re: Cicero - Love Is Everywhere Demo

The bagpipes were terrible, but everything else was great. That Loving Feeling is a masterpiece, and Live For Today breaks my heart. Cicero has been shy to come back into the limelight, but now he's doing it, it's great to see him. I recommend following him on Twitter (https://twitter.com/Dave_Cicer...

This arrived today. Hardback. I always loved the song Rudebox, but obviously I bought it for She’s Madonna and We’re The Pet Shop Boys.

I wasn't going to bother ordering this, but having seen Dog's pictures, I'm glad I did. Nice looking package.

Re: I just nearly fainted!

That's a great story, some 'oldie' music teachers don't really get electronic music. I used to have an (older) mate who loves classical music and is a trained pianist. He doesn't know anything about pop music, he had "vaguely heard" of Pet Shop Boys. Before I could play I used to give him a book and...

Re: I just nearly fainted!

Wow, lovely to see, thanks for posting. Do we live in the same house, that looks like my floor :) I'd love to get those. I'd be playing So Sorry I Said on loop from Liza. Not sure how For Your Own Good and Radiophonic would sound on the piano, but I'd love to try. I bet the Happiness is an Option pa...

It took me close to a year to track down Very! I'm going to have to find that Nightlife book then, there is not even one listed on Ebay!
I play these regularly in case you wondered. :D

I feel very lucky to own Please, Actually, Introspective, Behaviour, Very, Bilingual, Release, Fundamental and of course PopArt. I don't know if there was o...

Re: The best remix ever

Most of the remixed lists here are spot on, especially the first page. The greatest remix ever is We All Feel Better (After Hours Climax). I would add that recent remixes I think are excellent and improve the originals are Did you see me coming (Possible More), Leaving (Believe in PSB - the "I belie...
