You know, I agree with the essence of what you are saying.glennjridge wrote:Its an adverage song in YOUR opinion.I think its a great song.you know, not everyone knows whats a great song before its released. the very same people who say it sucks are most likely the very same people who would love it if the drums were going 140 bpm.
some of you need to take your mock horror down a notch.you arent the multimillionaire songwriters. they are.
their choices made them rich.if they started listening to this bunch here they would still trapped in 1985 forever or be using drums that sound like machine guns in a echo chamber and asking for chris to sing more.
However, I think its a fair comment to say that the Pet Shop Boys have not had a truly significant global hit single for 12 years, and that this is partly due to their choices for single releases. And this is despite the fact that their work has been consistently excellent during those 12 years.
I attended the concert at Trafalgar Square, and thought it was superb. The soundtrack is excellent.
The point I was making is that this song is really the low point of the whole soundtrack - its the kind of uncommercial, dreary ballad which does nothing for Neil's voice or the Pet Shop Boys musical talent. Its MOR dullsville which turns into a frankly embarrasing RLD/Go West cheese fest at the end.
Frankly, its a bizarre choice for a single. No radio station in their right mind would playlist it.
