Winner VS New York city boy: Which is more embarrassing?

#1 Post by York Minster »

Sorry for all the polls, but this is a unique time in PSB history.
And tryin' to figure out what happened to 'Germaine Propaine'
"He couldn't have fell off that hard" Ain't no way
"What happened to the way you was rappin' when you was scandalous
That Canibus turned into a television evangelist"
Plus he raps with his regular voice [BOOSH! BOOSH!]
[BOOSH! BOOSH!] (What was that?) Pet Shop Boys

What can I say, I'm just overwhelmed by this gem the boys have given us.

Mike Fiorenza is sat, waiting for his phone to ring in case someone wants to hear New York city boy played down the line to them.

It never did ring. He has a very long beard and wild, staring eyes*.
Nice man.

Now that's a weird choice - I always thought New York city boy was an instant classic, while Winner is just a shameless sellout I probably won't ever be able to listen to again (2 times was more than enough).

If you actually have to write, "Sorry for all the polls" maybe you should consider how stupid and pointless they are.

FWIW, New York city boy was a disco lark, a fun song that's not so embarrassing, except perhaps to provincial homophobes. It's an imaginative "story" of a bored gay teen c. 1979 fleeing suburbia for the scary excitement of NYC, the glamour and possibility and freedom. Not a great song, not their best, but not "embarrassing" either. Some very good remixes to it as well, I think.

"Winner" is a corporate jingle.

Why is this a "unique time in PSB history"?

I don't think either are embarrassing but New York City Boy gets my vote as the "more" embarrassing one.

Its melody and sound design. Usually I find it listenable, but at other times I cringe and skip over to Footsteps. Winner does not have this effect on me, I love the sound and melody and can repeat it several times in the same listening session.

Move along folks, nothing objective to see here.

Scapa, when they talk of "Care in the Community", they don't mean the Pet Shop Boys forum.

You've taken the wrong pill again, haven't you.

"Winner" is not embarrassing, these lyrics of these songs are:

"I feel like taking all my clothes off, dancing to the Rite of Spring" (I wouldn't normally do this kind of thing)

"(Ooh ah ah ooh ah ah ooh ah ooh) [Hello] (Ooh ah ah ooh ah ah ooh ah ooh) (Ooh ah ah ooh ah ah ooh ah ooh) (Ooh ah ah ooh ah ah ooh ah ooh)" (Shameless)

"I want a dog, A chihuahua" (I Want a Dog)

"The boy who couldn't keep his clothes on / loved dancing all night long" (The boy who couldn't keep his clothes on)
