Sunday rewind: PSB

Is it just me or could today use some Pet Shop Boys? That's what I thought. And no, these songs are not just '80s, as Pet Shop Boys are timeless.

My Pet Shop Boys were doing mash-ups long before the word "mash-up" was thought of. "Where the Streets Have No Name (I Can't Take My Eyes Off of You)" is fabulous. And not just because I think I was a Las Vegas showgirl in a former life.


 

 

Next is the song with possibly my favorite title of all time, "You Only Tell Me You Love Me When You're Drunk."


 

 

Most of my favorite song titles are PSP songs titles.  Here's another one: "I Don't Know What You Want, but I Can't Give it Anymore."

Finally, it's the remix of "Always on My Mind/In My House."  I've always liked the synthesizers in the remix better than the original cover of "Always on My Mind."  Oh, and Neil does this spoken-word rap thing that's just great. And only in the remix does he sing "maybe I didn't love you" at the end of song — because that's what you want in a love song.  


 

Here is the spoken-word part: 

You were always on my mind thats true
I never thought of any-one else but you
You were on my mind and in my dreams
I should have stopped to make you see
You were always

I worked so hard I thought you knew
My love I did it all for you
I never really had the time
I guess you couldn't read my mind
You were always

 

And that is how we do Pet Shop Boys on Sunday.
