And also "The Way It Used To Be" kind of reminds me of an Abba song, but I can't figure which one! But it's a great song never-the-less.


To me it reminds me of the ABBA song 'The Day Before You Came' from 1982.

'Yes' is fantastic. Far better than Fundamental, and full of the PSB quirkyness and popness that made them the house hold name today. Infact, this album is the best thing they have done since the mid 90s.

Pet Shop Boys were on Channel 4's 'The Album Show' last night. They played two sets, Love Etc and Always On My Mind. They also had a brief chat with the shows presenter.

Pet Shop Boys played their final concert of 2009 last night at the O2 Arena in London. The concert was filmed and recorded for release early in 2010 on both DVD and CD.

Hope JMJ's plan about this will go as smoothly as for PSB! About whichever 2010 concert...

in case you didn't know (I only happened to spot it today doing some last minute shopping in HMV), as it doesn't seem to have had much promotion...

PET SHOP BOYS - CHRISTMAS EP
tracks:
All over the world (new version)
It doesn't often snow at Christmas (new version)
My girl
My girl (house mix)
Viva la Vida/Domino Dancing

price 5.99 UKP in HMV

it came out on 13 December

I've just downloaded it on iTunes - 3.95 UKP

The song It Doesn't Often Snow at Christmas is particularly festive, although perhaps slightly misforecasted considering the weather at the moment. The lyrics and music are festively cheesy, but with a hint of (possibly deliberate) irony. The song My Girl is really quite good... bouncy synth electronica!

Their Roskilde performance last year was broadcast on TV, I think you can find it on the pirate bay.

That auction, what made me LOL was one of the questions asked about payment . . .

"can i pay by cheque or postal order"

OK, I can understand a cheque, but a postal order. Who in their right mind would pay for an item running into a couple of grand with "postal orders"? :smoke:
