Re: Burning the heather

I just read Ghost's response, which sums up everything I think (more eloquently too). The song is about burning the bloody heather, getting rid of the old to make way for the new. So of course it isn't JUST about a man in a pub. It is about aging, time, global warming, society. It is brilliant reall...

Re: Burning the heather

I have, thank you. It is also definitely about a lonely man drinking in a pub. Poems are multi-layered.

Re: Burning the heather

Doesn't Cameron own a pad in Cornwall where they burn a lot of heather? Can't imagine they'd waste a song on that knob cheese, but for some reason that's the guy I picture in the pub. Aaahhh for me!!! I do think it is Brexit though, hence the drop now. Well that and the Autumn bit I suppose. Love PSB.

Re: Burning the heather

Rather nice. I think it's political. Can't quite work out what though. Maybe an allegory of England and its demise? Slow, lingering, misunderstood, lost? Probably not. Very atmospheric though, takes you to those moors.

Re: Keeping An Open Mind on An Open Mind

The pace and phrasing are similar to Winner aren't they? Thankfully the sentiment has been dropped though! Great hook. So catchy and PSB. It is so simple though you're trying to remember where you've heard it before. Maybe that's why they've relegated it, they're trying to remember too. Looking forw...

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Hyde Park Sep 15th 2019

I don't post on here often so I shouldn't really comment but I was offended by that 'too gay' post earlier. What the? I'm a straight mother of two but I really didn't like it. Why bother taking offence on someone's behalf, they probably don't care, but you're in tears, poor snowflake. I think camp ...

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Hyde Park Sep 15th 2019

We had a really great time. It flowed really well. Only Go West jarred a little for me but the crowd loved it. I don't think Neil likes singing it, and it tells. I thought Beverley was a great choice. Loved Burn and It's a Sin. Olly looked really proud to be up there with them and he looked fab. I t...

Re: Trying to be fair about the level of PSB's music nowadays

I wish they'd trimmed Super down to 6 or 7 tracks. I'm not that bothered about Undertow, Say it to me, Groovy or Into thin air. A bit cloying for me. Love the two slower tracks, Burn and TPK. Super could have been a moodier version of the fantastic Electric. I guess they have to tour these albums no...

Re: Say it to Me : the next single!

Sorry, you are absolutely 100% wrong. Unless you think I'm lying to you. Look at the exchange rates! You are incorrect about how the terms 'weak' and 'strong' are applied to currency. Right now the Canadian dollar is considered weak against the US dollar. Currently one Canadian dollar can purchase ...

Re: Pet Shop Boys Scrapbooks - new Facebook page

Love it, thanks. I kept a scrapbook too and weirdly it had a picture from the same photoshoot on the front. I think mine was from Smash Hits though. Most of those pictures are like old friends you never forget. I remember cutting out that cartoon analysis from the Smash Hits yearbook i think. Happy ...

Re: Australian News Roundup

I love Australia. Beautiful country and people. I have also lived and worked in Melbourne for 18mths and spent time in Sydney. All different of course - love Melbourne. I wasn't expecting a 2nd Uk or USA. I just stupidly didn't appreciate how different emmigrating with a family is from travelling. I...
