Oh, and prefer the cute b side version of I want a dog to the Introspective version, although I rate both.

Re: How different are your PSB tastes from those of the majority of PSB fans?

I don't really rate Behaviour, it was the flat, old fashioned analogue sound that did nothing for me and it was a huge disappointment after what came before. Can't fault Being Boring but the rest? Average. I loathe Where the streets have no name which to me always smacked of desparation to get a hit...

Re: Inner Sanctum - 3sat

Thanks for the heads up on YouTube availability, I'll get the DVD on the strength of that. Always like it when they update an arrangement, keeps the old songs fresh. Liked the additional musicians on stage for a change.

Re: BBC4 Top of the Pops Repeats

1987 - curious show concentrating on the C list 'celebrities'. Good on EMI re-releasing a stonewall classic by Nat King Cole, much as I think Rick Astley comes across as a decent bloke that was a terrible cover. And I did laugh at Carole Decker being outraged by being usurped to the Christmas No.1 b...

Re: 2019 Pet Shop Boys News: "Inner Sanctum DVD, touring, new album"

Wouldn't thank you for BluRay - makes my eyes sore watching anything that hyper-realistic after just 10 minutes, same reason the last computer game I played was PacMan... Stick 4k resolution where the sun don't shine IMO.

In my house

Has there ever been a fan-based remix of In my house as a standalone track? Can't find one on YouTube and it's ripe for its own extended dance mix IMO

Re: Do you know her?

Anyone with a Twitter or FB account? If she's ever been tagged in a photo previously should recognise her I believe.

Re: Hypothetical Poll. If Cardi B covers PSB

Never heard of her. Another "here today, gone tomorrow" fad in what passes for music these days presumably.

Re: BBC4 Top of the Pops Repeats

These really are marvellous time capsules of each week they represent whether the music is good, bad or indifferent. From the frankly ridiculous fashions to the Smashy and Nicey presenting with a huge number of novelty records you can't believe were hits, through the sublime performances to the fran...

Re: the most embarassing PSb song is...

It has that appalling gypsy voices sample that sounds like The Chipmunks on helium and the only line Neil has ever written that makes me wince every time: "For market forces to provide". Oh, and that bloody flute too. Awful, hackneyed stuff.

Re: 2018: "...Chris & Neil will be writing songs for a new album"

If it's a fallow year I'm still thinking Annually will come out again. Quite happy if it was accompanied by a live CD of either the Super tour or the performance of The Turing Project, can't see that getting it's own studio realease now.
