The results

Below are the results of the Rank The B-sides survey. I processed 21 lists. The number 1 song got 62 points, the number 2 song 61 points, and so on.

Today I noticed that the article had also been translated into Dutch, and appeared on a Belgian website. I informed the website editor about the incorrectness of the article, referring to the statement on the official website and they decided to remove it. It's clear, one can never trust boulevard p...

I keep a record of how many times I've listened to songs. I've done a thread called 'Fundamental playcount' somewhere but I've stopped updating it so I don't look a tw@t. Have you ever heard of www.last.fm ? It's a website that can automatically monitor and count the mp3's you listen. Just make sur...

*LOL* - And I see you love DJ Culture, my 3rd favourite PSB single ever. Another display of sublime taste. :up:

I did a weekly singles Top 20 between 1998 and 2004. All PSB singles released in that period (I don't know what you want but I can't give it any more, New York city boy, Drunk, HAD, I get along, London, Miracles and Flamboyant) made #1. If memory serves me well, Drunk was at #1 for the highest numbe...

The chords are indeed difficult. Judging from more recent PSB songs, it seems Chris & Neil learnt a lot more about chords since 1988. Especially the unreleased track 'Motoring' is full of weird chords...

I'm not going to Pet Shop Boys concerts for the visual effects, so I don't really care. When the effects or the stage show are good, it's a nice bonus. I'm more interested in hearing new song arrangements and musical surprises, like songs we haven't heard live before, or haven't heard live in ages.

It's a great album, an absolute must! It contains some of the best songs PSB ever wrote and some interesting covers. You certainly won't regret it.

It's not really a detailed and proper conclusion for someone who claims to be into Statistics. Drico might also come to the conclusion that Stat's freak has been 3.5 times eager and very, very sad. Compare your posts and replies to Nickname's. I'm sure this'll be different. Also what percentage of ...

Trust me, one look at any of your threads usually does the job for me. Forum users seem to think differently, though. Since I'm stats-freak, I did some research and analysed all topics you and I opened in the PSB Discussion part of this forum :) The new Pet Sop Boys album is out... replies 8 views ...
