What a refreshing change ..! A truly beautiful, dare I say classic song on mainstream radio in 2018.. If I had my way the 'Smashie and Nicey' DJ's would still be on Radio 1 and playing songs like this all the time, mate..! :dance:
Do you know the difference between the two genders..?

It's probably the most beautiful song they've ever recorded with Being Boring.

An amazing song. Truly beautiful.

Former Suede guitarist and producer Bernard Butler chose it as one of the tracks that has soundtracked his life on (I think) 6Music a year or so ago. It was great to hear it on the radio then. He talked about being a big PSB fan which I hadn't quite realised.

I've always loved Kings Cross, a beautiful song. It feels timeless.

The original ad that Brett placed in Melody Maker for a guitarist name checked PSB along with Cocteau Twins as influences

It's simply one of their finest. Does anyone slag on King's Cross?
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

I don’t think anyone would dare - stunning track.
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.

Ditto on all of the comments (so far).
“Kings Cross” is easily one of my top
PSB songs ... ever :)

"King's Cross" is devastating -- in the good way. Just so powerful and emotional. I was too young at the time, but it always makes me think of those images from the black and white video with Chris in the tube station and the city being savaged by the AIDS crisis... x
