Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

First verses of "Will-o-the-wisp" gave me strong impression that this song was written as a sort of sequel to "Young offender", even though I know that latter is very unlikely Berlin-linked in any way. Yes I too got vibes that the Will-o-the-Wisp is also the Young Offender. 'Do you still hang aroun...

Re: Burning the heather

It's a lovely song. I like the quintessential Britishness of it. I hear echoes of Kate Bush songs. As others have said, it means what you want it to mean.

Re: Annually and Agenda CD lost by Digital Stores

Well, a month after telling me my copies of Annually and Agenda had been 'lost' and refunding my money, Digital Stores have been in touch today to say they've now been returned by the courier and will be redelivered free of charge. I'm not sure I believe anything they've told me but at least this se...

Annually and Agenda CD lost by Digital Stores

My copy of Annually and the Agenda CD didn't arrive. I got in touch with Digital Stores who say it is 'lost'. They also took my payment twice and refunded it once. Obviously it's now out of stock, so it looks like I'll never get a copy. Have others had a similar experience?

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Well I think a new PSB song is a nice surprise to wake up to. The lyrics made me laugh and it has quite a good hook. The subject matter is a very now even if the lyrics are as subtle as a brick. I'm looking forward to tomorrow's new song. We should make the most of things like this, they won't be ar...

Re: Say it to Me : the next single!

Surprisingly the CD I ordered from the PSB shop has already been delivered. I like both the new songs. The Dead Can Dance reminds me of Leaving. All the remixes of Say It To Me improve the song, which makes a change.

Re: Say it to Me : the next single!

Have to say that for me this is the most inexplicable choice of PSB single since Before. Burn, The Dictator Decides and Into Thin Air are all much better tracks and much more radio friendly.

Re: If Brick England was in Super...

Bizarre that any Pet Shop Boys fan wouldn't love Brick England. It would light up any of their albums.

Re: "Twenty something" (video)

To me it was the obvious single from the album. The video adds a new dimension to the song and is clearly aimed at a global market. Who knows, it might even chart somewhere?

Re: "SUPER" - CHART RESULTS (arround 80.000 copies sold)

Going back to including streaming in the charts - it's daft. I buy a Pet Shop Boys CD and it counts towards the chart for that week. I play it ten times a day for the next six weeks and it doesn't count towards the chart. Someone else never buys a Little Mix CD but listens to it ten times a day on S...

Re: The Super is much better than I first thought thread

Super seems much more substantial two weeks on, particularly The Dictator Decides, Twenty-Something, Sad Robot World and Into Thin Air.

Re: Best song from "Super"

1. Twenty-Something
2. The Dictator Decides
3. Burn

Burn is the one that's grown on me most with repeated plays of the album. Barely noticed it at first.

Re: Countdown to The Pop Kids

It's a good, radio friendly pop song. Reminds me of New Order's World In Motion. I'm looking forward to the version with the extra verse.
