I love West End Girls. That intro, and guest vocals by Dusty Springfield!

Good thread. Well, except for Bono's shades making such an error like that.

Yeah, I do really rather like the Pet Shop Boys. Granted, most of my knowledge of them comes from best-ofs, though. I'm guessing I should check out the first two albums sometime? They seem pretty solid throughout their career as far as I can tell, though.

Wow, that is me to a tee. I only know them from Discography, Very and other singles/videos that I caught on TV. I suppose I should get Actually sometime. Behavior also looks interesting. Being Boring

PopArt is a good place for a complete overview of their career.

I've got nothin but love for the PSB. Pretty badass duo of English hitmakers.

They also co-wrote a pretty brilliant song with Brian Higgins for the most recent Aloud album. So that pretty much sealed the deal for me. They've got my respect.

Yes, yes, yes. They took that song and made it their own. When I hear their cover, I rarely even think of the U2 version, which is saying something, considering what a U2 fan I am.

I love the Pet Shop Boys so much. Many of the PSB albums I've owned were on cassette, so I don't have them anymore, but all of their records are solid. I still have five of their most recent records on CD. Nightlife, which is more recent in their catalogue, is my favorite, with Very and Fundamental right behind.

This is my favorite PSB song, "Home and Dry." Neil Tenant's voice is one of my favorites in all of music.

I guess I should check out Nightlife. I only know NYC Boy from watching the video on MTV.

I reserve the right to live
My life this way, and I don't give
A damn when I hear people say
I'll pay the price that others pay

Girls, boys, art, pleasure, violence, religion, injustice and death
Armani, Armani, Armani, Armani, Ah-ah-armani

Ah yes. An entire decade distilled into three minutes of pure pop brilliance.

Nightlife is an excellent choice, though Fundamental is another good one to pick up if you find it. They're both

Thanks, financeguy, for posting Paninaro. I'd never heard it before.
