Re: Smithsonian presents: Project Pride feat. PSB

Smithsonian Project Pride playlist on Spotify indicates that the boys could perform Will-o-the-wisp and/or Dreamland but West End girls wins:

Re: Which song Pet Shop Boys could cover in the future?

I would be most interested in a cover of Al Stewart's album Year of the Cat in its entirety but I would settle for the title track.
A Chris-inspired updated synth soundtrack along with Neil's vocals would be pure gold!

Re: Annually 2020 + Free CD

It seems that the OS has shipped my standard delivery pkgs to the US via PostNL. My experience with PostNL is that a parcel can sit around for up to 2 weeks before it is physically picked up. Then another 2 weeks crossing the pond before spending at least another week clearing US Customs. Then it mo...

Re: The End Of The World (Needs more love)

The 2001 remaster has the track starting after the segue from Nervously. The 2018 remaster corrects the mistake. I must admit that for compilation purposes the 2001 version was better as it just goes bang straight into it. Thanks for reminding me That's what I remember when ripping to mp3 I haven't...

Here's a question - which version do people prefer? The 1990/2018 version or the 2001 edit? :wink:
How is the 2001 edit different?

What was the original track listing for Behaviour:
Miserablism instead of The end of the world ?
