I’m only going to say a few short words today.
This rundown would have had no credibility whatsoever if the Pet Shop Boys didn’t make an appearance.
No other band or act has made so many top-class singles during my 45 years on the planet as Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe. I think (at 2015) it is approaching 60, including four #1s, and a further thirty-eight that made the Top 30. You can’t argue with the facts…..this is a very special pop group.
And this damn near perfect pop song was one of those that reached #1, back in 1988.
mp3 : Pet Shop Boys – Heart
Here’s yer b-side
mp3 : Pet Shop Boys – I Get Excited (You Get Excited Too)
Oh and you know how I’m also always going on about great live acts – well, their show at the SECC in Glasgow back in 1991 was one of the best I’ve ever seen.
