This was crying out to be a double A Side surely....

She Pops is so sweet.

Is the joke here that you don't like The Pop Kids? She Pops is some annoying Japanese-advert music.

Just my opinion, but I think that “The Pop Kids” is a vastly superior track.

I know it's just a demo, but it's one of those tracks where Neil can't be bothered writing proper chorus lyrics ("I don't know what you want but I can't give it any more" being the main example).

I'm not sure it's the same calibre as Pop Kids, but I Love She pops.

It's really cute and I love the lyrics. And the vocal harmonies on it - the double tracked business - are genuinely gorgeous. It's very throwaway, yet incredibly effective.

The track is smart, but cheesy as *uck. It's good, but in the same way as One-Hit Wonder, throwaway bop.
Have a look at my taste in music:

That’s the thing about negative energy, about hatred. It can be positive. It throws into relief all the things you know you like. It tells you, by elimination, what you’re about. Sometimes you can only define yourself by what you hate. Hatred becomes an inspiration; it makes you think, “What I’m doing now I totally believe in, and I don’t care what other people say.” Guided by hatred, you don’t have to follow the herd. - Neil Tennant

It's a cool, very retro sounding song.

I'm not sure it would have fit on the album though.

The lyrics could be developed a little more too.

Unfortunately i keep thinking about the stupid cyndi lauper song, 'she bop' during it.

She pops is nearly an anagram of Pet shop.
