Re: Name the next Pet Shop Boys album

My guess would be Berlin.

Re: Today I listened to Elysium for the first time since 2012...

It's a very pleasant album and I often listen to it on the way home from work to wind down. Leaving is wonderful and despite such a simple philosophy about love never dying due to memories it's delivered immaculately. Also love Invisible, A face like that and in particular Give it a go, which has on...

Re: 10 for 10: Best Pet Shop Boys Tracks of the Decade

1. Leaving: Heartbreaking yet hopeful lyrics, with some fantastic remixes. 2. The Pop Kids: The joy and pain of the past. 3. Together: Rave pop at its best and the extended mix is amazing. 4. Into thin air: PSB go sort of poppy drum and bass with an escapist theme. 5. Inside a dream: The dreamy stan...

Re: I'm with stupid revisited

I'm not convinced. The lead singles from the Nightlife and Release eras both missed the top 10 by some considerable distance so it proves PSB fans don't buy everything regardless of timing. And obviously I'm with stupid was a fanbase purchase but it was a bloody successful one because it clearly br...

Re: I'm with stupid revisited

From a commercial perspective I simply can't believe people think I'm with stupid was the wrong choice as lead single. It was their biggest hit since Se a vida e. I'm with stupid made #8 in the UK charts (missing out by a whisker on #7) and subsequently Fundamental charted at #5 in the album charts...

Re: Full album shows

Suede played their first three albums on consecutive nights at the Brixton Academy, each followed by a greatest hits section. There's no reason why PSB couldn't do the same and it would be massively popular.

Re: Neil's Worst Lyrics

Surprised no-one's mentioned Sexy northerner, which is utterly cringeworthy lyrically throughout. I've always found that immensely frustrating as musically it's brilliant.

Re: Something not very usual in a PSB concert

The crowd participation was a really nice touch. Shows just how much they love touring these days. I've always thought One thing leads to another would be fantastic for that - "oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, one thing leads to another" - etc.

Re: New Thursday radio edit

Simon Mayo played the normal version earlier in the week and was quite complimentary about the rap section. Maybe playing the "no rap edit" was a condition of the song rising to the A-list. Wouldn't surprise me.

Re: "Thursday" video

Leaving was B-listed in its first week but moved up to the A list the following week. That said, my gut feeling is Thursday will stay B-listed. When you consider the A list currently features the likes of Status Quo, Celine Dion and James Blunt, an upbeat pop anthem featuring a trendy rapper isn't l...
