I like the melody and the drumbeat. It's not groundbreaking but it will be one of those songs I'll go out of my way to listen to.

A bit demo-ish, but quite a good b-side.
Agreed. I'm liking the groove and sparse production.

It wee-wees all over Wedding In Berlin.
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.

yeah I like it also. its also very 80's, and quirky like a talking heads song. another set of nice lyrics from Neil also

its another song that reminds me of the night time somehow. like "in bits" and "one night". something about the sounds used

Hmm. They should have replaced this with Decide.

The fact that we're not getting the usual two b-sides per single leads me to believe there is another collection of songs, be that another album, side-project, or EP in the offing.

Well they've already made direct references to the next album so you could be right.
I've been saying we might even get an Elysium/Electric deal where the proceeding album is 10 months apart.

As in release At Rock Bottom as an earlier b-side then decide after the hype of the album launch.

I was just being daft; we’re always trying to swap certain album tracks for Decide. So why not a b-side, too?

Love the riddim as they say in reggae circles...
Hello my name is Neil Tennant and I'm Chris Lowe and we're of the Pet Shop Boys.

I wonder if it was partly inspired by George Michael.

Terrible.
Expressing passion, explaining pain
This is my kind of music
