Biography

1981 - August
On August 19th, Neil and Chris meet by chance in an electronics shop on the Kings Road. Realizing they have a common interest in dance music, they begin to write together. Initially they call themselves West End; later they come up with the name Pet Shop Boys, a name derived from some friends who work in a pet shop in Ealing. "We thought it sounded like an English rap ... Read more in Amazon's Pet Shop Boys Store

Can't wait until their next one comes out this month.

The strength and vulnerability in Neil's voice is haunting and heart breaking.

Like a lot of Pet Shop Boys fans I guess, I was really looking forward to hear what Stuart Price had done with "Memory of the future" because it is one of the best songs of their last album but although Stuart Price's mix is good, I must admit, it makes me appreciate the album version even more. In this way it reminded me of Very's 3rd single "I wouldn't normally do this kind of thing" where even though the single version made by the Beatmasters was great, its release made me love the album version even more : because it was more simple, more direct and straight to the point. Well, it's the same thing here.

Granted, Stuart have used here some great sounds, some of them are even like a blast from the past because they are like the ones used on I'm not scared (Eighth wonder's version written by the boys), but this new single mix makes this song sound even more pet shop boys-y than the pet shop boys' own version on the album and it kind of lost a bit of the appeal and uniqueness of the original version in the process which is a shame because the album version didn't sounded like anything the pet shop boys had done before but now with this remix and all its echoes, arpeggiator effects and powerful bass, it's like any other pet shop boys single of the past which I think is too bad, in a way. But this song is so great that either version is a real treat, a pleasure to listen to anyway, so it doesn't bothers me that much but I still think it was worth mentionning.

The other tracks of this cd are also good songs that could have made it to the album, the better one being One night but Listening and Inside have their own charm too.

Hi All
I love buying cdsingles which of course is now getting harder.
Most of all Neil and Chris always add great tracks to what we all grew up with as "B" sides.

The three tracks here are a story in themselves. Sometimes the slower songs as these are have the greatest stories and after repeated listenings really grow on you. Very moody and uplifting at the same time.

My favourite B side has always been "A man Could get Arrested" and "My Funny Uncle" and these three are just as good.

If you love the Pet Shop Boys it is great to collect their cdsingles. :)

Not my favorite track from the beautiful 'Elisyum'. I'm a huge PSB fan, but this just struck me as a bit drab and lazy. However, this is worth the purchase for the great B-Sides, especially 'Listening' written for and recorded by Morten Harket (his version is great too).

Great sound, I always love the Pet Shop Boys underground sound. I especially love one night. Reminds me early morning dancing.
