Re: Neil's flogging off an antique piano.

Auction ended one month ago now, but unfortunately no further posts or news here. :(
I'm still wondering what happened to it and who is playing it now.

Does anybody know?

Re: Poll ends soon on whether you want PSB to eventually have a "retirement tour"

A retirement tour? Oh no, the thought of it makes me very sad and I don't even want to think about that. :( I don't want the soundtrack of my life ever to stop and just wish that everything goes on ... and on ... and on ... forever! Hopefully this terrible day is far, far away ... lightyears away. S...

Re: New Literally

My copy arrived in Germany on 17th April, so that was quite fast (faster than last year). I'm very happy with it. The 1986-interview with the comments is funny and entertaining. It's a nice idea, I'd like to read more of this. At first sight I thought that the David Walliams-interview is quite long ...

Re: Forthcoming PSB TV and radio appearances...

The edited TV version of "Inner Sanctum" will be broadcasted on German TV channel 3sat again on May, 1st (7:35-8:50 a.m. CET). It is part of the programme "Pop Around The Clock", and I guess it's the same 75-min-edit that was broadcasted on New Year's Day 2019 already. I'm quite sure that everybody ...

Re: Comparisons

Very interesting thought. Thank you for the links. I quite like both songs, but I have to admit that I don't know very much else of Bing Crosby.

This brings two other songs to my mind, and one difference between Crosby and the PSB surely is their opinion concerning snow at Christmas. :)

Re: Neil's flogging off an antique piano.

Oh yes, transport definitly was a reason, especially for international bidders. And for me of course the limited space in my quite modest living room. :( This piano deserves some great surroundings and someone who can play it well. I just hope it went to a fan - and lots of PSB-songs will be played ...

Re: PSB Newbie

Hello scienceguy, and a warm welcome from another newbie. It's great to have you here. Age doesn't matter at all, it's an advantage, because it makes this forum a lot more interesting. I guess we are all quite different here, different ages (I was 13 when West End Girls was released), come from diff...

Re: On Social Media (video)

Really like the song and the video. Great lyrics (again)!

When I listen to OSM, I always hear "unsocial media"
I wonder if this is intentional ? :)

Re: Pet Shop Boys - English

Yes, frenchpsbfan, you are absolutely right. PSB-lyrics have always been a motivation for me to improve my English, too (unfortunately not very successful). Especially new words you won't find in any ordinary dictionary, just like 'hansard'. So Neil really is a good teacher :lol: He also woke up my ...

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Second song is great, too.
And I really like the video.

Two fantastic new songs in two days ... and two more to come. What a great week!
It almost feels a bit like Christmas.

Thank you so much, N&C :)

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Seems that the exciting news don't stop this week ...
They really know how to surprise us!

Already love the first song and can't wait for the next three ones.
The cover art of the EP is a bit unusual at first sight - but why not trying something different? Surprised again :)

Re: The new album of Pet Shop Boys: "It's sounding good!". Are you sure Neil?

Amazing news!
Maybe another LA-based album even has bits of the warm sound of Elysium again? I'd love that!
And if Neil says that it's sounding good, I trust him entirely ... just hoping that Chris thinks likewise 8)
