"Tors 27/4: Idag börjar vi också räkna ner Pet Shop Boys topp fem!
Fre 28/4: Vi fortsätter att avslöja utgången av Pet Shop Boys-omröstningen."

Listeners voted on their site earlier in the week. My money's on Always on my mind or Go West.

This is the results of the P3:ean jury so far.
2. Being boring.
3. Always on my mind.
4. Go West.
5. West End Girls.

The number one will be presented tonight, on Musikjournalen, at 20.00.

It's a sin anyone? :)

Maverick.. i have to admit a thing.. and as a PSB-fan.. its not fun at all to say this.. but i have never liked "Its a sin".. i always thought it was a boring track :)

I enjoyed "What have i done to deserve this", and "Rent" much more actually.
Even Shopping is an awesome song.

In highschool (classes 4-6) we used to have "Song of the week" competition, where a few ppl in the class had some songs with them on a tape, and we would rate them, and see what won.

Pet shop boys won everytime someone had them with them :D
"Rent / What have i done to deserve this / SHopping / Domino Dancing / Left to my own devices" was a few songs i remember that won :)

I voted for "It's a sin" myself, so I hope so!

Otherwise I wouldn't mind "So hard", which also is a big favourite of mine. I've never liked "Being boring" that much.

It is indeed a bit boring that two cover versions have entered the list, although not very surprising... :cry:

"Only the wind" had been on my top 5 for sure.
The lyrics on that, makes me sad.

Jag hoppas på subban som jag röstade på... :D
men förmodligen sin

It'll probably be It's A Sin, or a surprise entry for Domino Dancing, given that it was a hit in Sweden for West End Girls recently.

It was probably on Deluxe, and Björne singing about how much he hates his buddy Snigel. You can listen to it here (scroll down):

And deservedly so.
"Unprofessional? Us? Sir. Might I with due respect remind you that Mister Vandemar and myself burned down the City of Troy? We brought the Black Plague to Flanders. We have assassinated a dozen kings, five popes, half a hundred heroes and two accredited gods. Our last commission before this was the torturing to death of an entire monastery in sixteenth century Tuscany. We are utterly professional." - Mr Croup
