Re: The unusual song structure of "The Pop Kids".

I hope there's a radio edit that cuts the needless spoken bit and the gay porn voiceover elements. The track would then be around 3.10 which is plenty long enough for an average track The spoken bit is great, about the "gay porn" (I see I was not the only one who realized about it) they c...

Re: Countdown to The Pop Kids

I really like it. Insanely catchy and lyrics that I can relate to (although there was no way I could have been described as a kid in the 90s - more like the early 80s for me). The talking bit is fine and so are the oohs. I don't know why some are equating this to porn - it may say more about them th...

Re: The Pop Kids tracklisting and release date

It's a hoax according the official website.

Re: Japanese Super CD

Sony are distributing the CD in Japan and their music store lists a bonus track. Same translation as above.

According to HMV Japan, the local release will have 13 tracks. Not sure what the bonus track is since Google Translate doesn't make any sense.

Two words. Dusty Springfield. Her contribution really makes this song sublime.

Re: "What is Super?"

I have pre-ordered on iTunes. I thought that was the only way to get the track. No, you can buy it from iTunes without pre-ordering Super. That's what I did. I bought it separately too. I still hold out hope that there might be a special edition. I know there wasn't one for "Electric" but...

Re: The Pop Kids - hopes and expectations

I think even a lot of native English speakers have trouble with when to use the apostrophe let alone anyone else.

As for the song, I just hope it's a great song. I am guessing that it will be very catchy and poppy, which will no doubt split the fanbase.

Re: Inner Sanctum

I want a longer version, not a shorter one. I understand why they did it but I guess it's called the GN edit since that is probably going to be the only place it will be played. It's not the single after all, just a teaser.

Re: The Super album colour choice and aesthetic

I don't know art but I do know that it's just a %&#/* circle. It's the music that matters, I guess, but I always had a thing for the artwork and imagery. The last few albums have just lacked any style or imagination. I did like the "Elysium" covers but I really didn't like "Yes&qu...

Re: 30th anniversary issue of Please - wishlist

I would love to have a remastered version of "Disco" as part of the set. 2016 is its 30th anniversary year too and it is very much a companion release to "Please".

Re: Royal Opera House - who?

If you want to know what your view will be like, go to some other performance at the ROH where there are still many tickets available (for example this one: https://www.roh.org.uk/events/29152/tickets ), and select a ticket that comes close to the one you bought. You will then see a little photo th...

Re: "What is Super?"

"2" is the PERFECT title for a duets album: - 2 because PSB are 2 - 2 because is a duets album - 2 because thera are many artists on the album and well, "Pet Shop Boys 2" Olivia Newton-John beat them to it. Her 2002 duets album was called (2) - the brackets are part of the title...
