Re: Re-evaluating Fundamental

I like all of the extraneous bits such as the haunting intro to "Excuses" and the brief "God Willing" instrumental that allow one to get a little lost within the listening experience. (As opposed to albums with 10 to 12 tracks of similar length and no "bleeding" from one track to another.) Fundament...

Re: Lyrics if the day...

I've always felt sorry for whomever had to write out the transcript for that track. :D

Re: PSB funny moments?

Not on youtube I think, but it's pretty hilarious. On the PopArt dvd, when Chris starts laughing at themselves while watching the Left to my own devices video. Indeed, the entire PopArt commentary track is loaded with hilarious bits from the boys and Chris Heath. I especially like CL's howl toward ...

Re: The first UK single with no video?

The PopArt DVD is a great joy to watch over and over, but the PSB promo vids since then (the last 10 years actually) have been quite lackluster. Only Flamboyant, Minimal and Together are worth multiple viewings, in my opinion. So maybe it's no loss if they cease releasing videos - even though Memory...

Re: If the Pet Shop Boys never made another cover version

Absolutely agree. I like Neil and Chris best as their own songwriters.

Although I guess I could live with the Boys covering Blue Savannah or I Love Saturday.

If PSB covered David Bowie

I should first note that I don't want PSB to become a covers band, but it's interesting to speculate in these threads... "Hallo Spaceboy" sounds great in the Somewhere concert. What are some other Bowie tracks that would work well for the Boys? A few of my suggestions include: Buddha of Suburbia Fam...

Re: If PSB covered ABBA ...

"Voulez-Vous" could work musically as a stomper with the proper PSB treatment, although I can't "hear" Neil singing this. "That's Me" could be a lot of fun Perhaps "Head Over Heels" I've always liked "Two for the Price of One," but it might be too "cute." Chris could do the voice on the phone. I als...

Re: Electricity appreciation thread

.... over the bland poppiness of Saturday . Only a few days later, but I have to revise my opinion of Saturday Night Forever . I heard it yesterday on the PSB In the Mix online radio station and it sounded great coming upon it randomly and in isolation from the album. So I guess Bilingual is now a ...

Re: I'm not scared

I was never that fond of the PSB version on Introspective until I got around to watching the Patsy Kensit video. It then "came alive" for me, and I can appreciate the song better now in either version.
