Re: Books mentioning the Boys

They're mentioned in glowing terms in Inside Little Britain. I bought it for a euro, was worth every cent :lol: I saw Patsy Kensit's autobiography, think it was called Absolute Beginner, in a discount shop recently. Couldn't resist having a nose to see what she says about them, and she said they're...

Re: PSB Song Similarities

Deodato's Keep On Moving (1982)... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mI8z-NQkk08 ... is an absolute dead-ringer for Pet Shop Boys' Why Don't We Live Together? Funky track! Chic-y too. Thanks for this. And yes, total WDWLT It’s alright and Sit and Wait (Sydney Youngblood) Nice song, but which particul...

Re: Pet Shop Boys in Vaporwave

Thanks! I like Vaporwave.
I love the version of Its Your Move by Diana Ross which is basically a slowed down version.
WOuld love to try it out with PSB tracks, expecially the 80s ones which have the arpeggio beats.

Re: What song can you just not stop singing to yourself?

The highs & lows in the below get stuck in my head.

"Shall I rewrite or revise
My October symphony?
Or as an indication
Change the dedication
From revolution to revelation?"

Re: Books mentioning the Boys

I just bought Boy George's autobiography , "Take It Like A Man", which has a noteworthy mention of Neil.

I wonder who all Neil slagged off as a journo, only to become contemporary to them later on. Hehe.

Re: Love & War - off cuts and unreleased songs

From Waynes site First recorded in Glasgow as a demo while the Boys were writing songs in 1989-90 for Behaviour. Chris and Neil worked some more on it in July 1998 during the Bilingual sessions, but as of November 2003 (when Neil answered a fan question about it on the official website) they still ...

Re: 20 Seconds and counting.....T Minus 15 Seconds Guidance is internal

Intros of My October Symphony and I'm Not Scared.

I get goosebumps when the song begins and then turns into something else.
Also happens in Burn, West End Girls, Its a Sin..

Re: RIP Pete Burns

R. I. P Pete. Loved the androgynous look and his powerful voice. First heard of YSMR only via the 2003 Metro mix's video.

I just heard one of his later releases "Never Marry An icon" . Very well done.

Would've loved a raw PB ft. PSB album. They'd have stuck a ballad in there too.

The Dead Can Dance

Loved this one! A bit of an overload of Neil's vocals, as it is continual for almost 2 minutes, but I'm not complaining! Also, Wayne's writeup on it in his site is pretty detailed.

Sadly only one photo, that too only of Neil.
