....just listening to 6 Music and their song "He dreams of machines" recorded with an
orchestra ...sounds absolutely fantastic.
See what you think.
Sorry I missed it, only just picked the thread up.
Currently on 6 Music is Steve Lamacq.

It was on Radcliffe and Maconie it was from a live concert with the BBC Philharmonic. Probably on iplayer or somesuch.
Really enjoyed it.
I almost *always* like the Pet Shop Boys
Will try and find on iplayer, thanks.

Interesting to hear the thoughts of a fan...
Well, my gf's the real fan but I do like a lot of their songs. Also saw them at Glastonbury in 2000 from the top of a hill, it was pretty mellow.
I'm not a huge fan of the Pet Shop Boys. As 'Duos Where One Bloke Sings And The Other Plays Keyboards' go I was more of a fan of Erasure, who made great Music To Dance To, as distinct from Dance Music. West End Girls, however, is undoubtedly an important song. Is this easily findable on iPlayer?

I'm with you John. I wouldn't even go so far a to say Neil Tennant 'sings', he just kind of talks in tune with the music.
Not exactly an Erasure fan either, but of the two, they should have been bigger than P.S.B,... better tunes, better vocals
