Final results of poll on the PSB highlight of 2019

The final results are in for my poll of the past two weeks, in which I asked my site visitors to choose what they consider to be the "Pet Shop Boys highlight" of 2019. And the response that received the most votes was: * "The 'Burning the Heather' single with the bonus track 'Decide,'" picked by 21....

Final results of my poll on early general opinions of "Decide"

The final results are in for my poll of the past two weeks, in which I asked my site visitors their general early opinion of the recent Pet Shop Boys song "Decide." And the response that received the most votes was: * "It's a good song, but I wouldn't describe it as one of the best of the decade," p...

Hotspot Japanese bonus tracks?

Some sites, such as Amazon, are reporting that the Japanese edition of Hotspot will have a "bonus track." A few sites are even reporting * two * bonus tracks on the Japanese edition. But none of them (at least that I've seen) say what the bonus track(s) may be. Have any of you heard anything more ab...

My new PSB poll -- your general early impression of "Decide"

I'm back! Although my husband and I are still deep in the throes of settling in and setting up our new household -- yes, we still have a good deal of unpacking and "arranging" to do -- I'm finally at a point where I feel able to resume something akin to my standard website chores, including my biwe...

It’s such a shame that it’s yet another song let down by muddy production. It should sweep and soar, the sonics are all there, but they’re pinned down and buried beneath a busy fudge.
I'm hoping that it will sound better -- cleaner and crisper -- on CD when the album is released.

Re: Burning the heather

Where's Geowayne to expertly explain what a breadhead is. I've finally gotten around to providing my initial commentary on the song on my website at http://www.geowayne.com/newDesign/hotspot/heather.htm I have to give credit where credit is due in that I'm indebted to this forum thread -- and to Ni...

Hi Geowayne

This is just to say that I hope that your move went well. :)
Thanks! We haven't moved yet, but hope to do so within the next six weeks -- fingers crossed! A lot of work ahead of us before then!

I'm stunned In Private didn't top 50%!

Retro. :)
To be honest (and I usually don't weigh in on things like this), so am I. In fact, I wouldn't have guessed that it would have been the top vote-getter rather than #2.
