  1. I have seen the PSB a couple of times and both were great productions even tho Neil’s microphone was malfunctioning for the first few songs . That was their first visit to the O2 arena.
    My favorite Ballard is Kings Cross there is just something Melodic I like about it .
    The reason I see for the change to more digital clubbing music is that the success they have had doing club dance hits , That includes Together only the pet shop boys would do a disco waltz but it works & sells .

  2. I like their recent music. I love the songs Burn and Dictator Decides from the last album. However, the last three albums are very 90's retro-esque. Ironically their 2009 album (Yes) sounds much more contemporary.

  3. Where the hell do you get the music for the petshop boys? I love their introspective album and I do like their mid 80s to mid 90s music.

  4. I do agree about them loosing their Britishness, I think they changed their ways in the night life album onwards.

  5. I wonder how the new album will be. in the Annual it mentions analog synths, and they posted an image on social media with an acid house piece of tech, and have made statements about the new album being a bit slower. so it could be more true to the original albums but who knows.

  6. The chord progression of Domino Dancing actually changes in the verse and in the break parts. In the Verse and for the hook it's similar to how you played it, but in the chorus it's like an inversion. It starts with a Dm then G Em Am G. Plus there a bunch of rather jazzy chords like an Am9 in the latin part.

  7. their record sales are estimated between 40 and 60 million, did you get
    your information from wiki ? 100 million would be more than DM and GnR,
    these figures would require constant commercial (album) success in U.S. across multiple decades

  9. Snap came onto the scene around '89, whereas "West End Girls" was released in '86… but your point about rapping is still valid nonetheless.

  10. Hi only just discovered your channel and am loving your Depeche Mode videos. But I’m also a massive Pet Shop Boys fan and have followed them since 1986. I completely get what you say about their recent albums. You might find their latest album Hotspot more to your taste, it’s less clubby and warmer than Super or Electric.

  11. Great video!! I loved your analysis and explanation of their songs and how the music and chords work with the theme or idea of the song and its lyrics.

  12. I think they had everyone at "Sometimes you're better off dead", which to me was a groundbreaking moment. In addition, rap done in British accent then was unprecedented, bold and career-defining.
