Re: This anticipation is a stimulation...

I think "Integral" has become a little stale over the passage of time. I still like it but it just doesn't excite me like it used to. Just another song. I never did like the remixes but I just replayed the Perfect Immaculate mix following Zog's post and I have to agree. I love it so much m...

Re: This anticipation is a stimulation...

Good to see "Dreaming of the Queen" getting a nod. This song has always been one of my favourite album tracks for the understated humour. I love the way Neil says "aghast". I agree about "Shameless" too. So much energy and it worked well as the only old PSB song in &quo...

Re: "What is Super?"

Seeing as this is a campaign aimed at the general public, I think this is going to be more than just counting down to a mere announcement. I think at the very least, we'll get the new single and all the details of the new album. Given the timing (West End Girls going number one 30 years ago), I expe...

Re: Were any NEW songs/samples played on David Pearce?

A 3 part documentary in March would more or less coincide with the 30th anniversary of "Please" - released 24 March 1986 according to Wikipedia. Maybe there would be a special rerelease of "Please" in early March with the new album coming out in April while there is still a buzz ...

Paninaro Ian Levine

I'm sure that someone will correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think that Ian Levine's remix of Paninaro has been released on CD.

A new compilation is out next month and it's included on that.

Re: Surprising things

I hate stupid comments like: "Yes but "Behaviour" wasn't really successful" or "the blip of Behaviour". In the UK, it was a number 2 album that was certified platinum. It may not have been as popular as some of the other albums but it was still commercially successful. ...

Re: Discovering Release

It's a solid album. Every track is an as valid PSB track as any other. Though the overall vibe is quite different. It's their "University pub tour" album, after all. +1 :up: I was on a trip to the UK when the album came out - Easter Monday I think. This was back in the days of record shop...

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Reflective

From Discography: "This is our favourite song on our fourth LP, Behaviour . It wasn't a big hit when released as a single in 1990 but, the following year, when we didn't include it in our Performance tour, so many people complained that we eventually added it as an encore and it invariably got ...

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Reflective

You know pretty good you can't compare the status of PSB in the 80's and early 90's with the status they have now. "Thursday" would have been a hit in the 80's. When I talk about chart positions, I'm not talking about it only in UK. For example "Being Boring" was released more o...

Re: Live DVD/CD purchasing advice please.

This is the version on my DVD and presumably Territorygal's. "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" is nowhere to be heard.



Then I found this version where "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" can be heard.



Anyone know the story behind this?

Re: How can you expect to be taken seriously

I agree that this song is an under-rated gem, both the album version and single version. It's sad that it never really gets acknowledged on compilations. It was an A-side after all even if the other song got all the attention at the time. Thanks for sharing the mixes. One version that I really love ...

Re: Live DVD/CD purchasing advice please.

I'm home sick today and all this talk of "Performance" has got me itching to sit down, relax and enjoy it again. I'm sure that my doctor would agree. :)
