“Being Boring” is a song by the British pop group Pet Shop Boys, the opening track from their fourth album Behaviour.

As the second single release from the album, following “So Hard”, “Being Boring” was not particularly successful upon release, only reaching number twenty in the UK Singles Chart and being the first single released by the group not to get into the Top 10 since “Opportunities (Let’s Make Lots of Money)” four years previously.

The song is concerned with the idea of growing up and how people’s perceptions and values change as they grow older. The title apparently materialised after someone in Japan accused the duo of being boring. The title is also derived from a Zelda Fitzgerald quotation, “she refused to be bored chiefly because she wasn’t boring”.

Rated highly by Pet Shop Boy aficionados, in a 1993 interview Neil Tennant described “Being Boring” as “one of the best songs that we’ve written”

My personal favorite too)

  1. I never dreamt that I would get to be the creature that I always meant to be, but I thought in spite of dreams you'd be sitting here with me

  2. Absolutely superb. I've watched your "Being Boring" piano cover video countless dozens of times and I get goose-bumps every time. So jealous, I only wish I could play this well. The comment others have made about comparing your sound and style to relaxing in a classy lounge or hotel is perfectly apt. I've been a fan of Pet Shop Boys for decades, which is how I discovered this collection, but I enjoy your piano covers of "Winner" and "Your Funny Uncle" far more than the originals.

  3. Am I right there's some out of chord bass on "in the nineteen twentieth"? Something like F/G G/G in your key. I don't hear it, I looked the chords up. So, not the bass moves beside the chord but the vice versa, the bass stands still and the chords change to resolve.
    Seems like one of their favorite harmony bit, they did the same in "Wouldn't normally do".

  4. Thank you for doing this piece and loading it for its not only my favorite PSB song but my favorite song. Please do more PSB songs if you can
