    Best Eighties Pet Shop Boys Song

    I saw under the news and rumours forum that The Pet Shop boys are releasing an album with Johnny Marr.

    But what was your favourite Pet Shop Boys song of the eighties?

    My fave song from TPSB's was their interesting take on "Always On My Mind". That was a great song. After that, my second fave would be "What Have I Done to Deserve This", their duet with the late Dusty Springfield. That was a wonderful song as well!!!

    I voted for "It's a Sin". I never seem to get sick of this song, no matter how much I play it...

    "West End Girls" is probably their 2nd best of the '80s.

    I cast my vote for "Suburbia"!! What a great song. A close second going to "West End Girls".

    It's a Sin, by a mile!

    It was such a huge slab of European Disco Drama, that the minute I heard it I knew it was going to be a BIG no 1.

    Such dramatic lyrics too "Father Forgive me, I tried not to do it..etc etc" Wonderful stuff from Messrs Tennant & Lowe!!

    Cool

    Gotta go with It's a Sin. I liked pretty much all of 'em, but that's the one that sticks out in my mind

    West End Girls here. It was new and different and it's still a great song.

    The Johnny Marr bit is true. I heard he's on 8 tracks. I posted this under the new releases or rumors section a few months ago. I heard the new single already and I love it. I will be running to the record shops when the full-length comes out. I worship johnny marr!!

    BTW - Rent is my personal favorite so I had to vote for that. But, generally speaking, I'd have to say that West End Girls would be the one that was most popular.

    Great topic!

    I voted for "West End Girls". This started my liking of the Pet Shop Boys and it is a tune I enjoy singing along with. This song just takes me back to a year that was full of surprises!

    I went with "Always On My Mind" because I always loved that version of it. "West End Girls" came in a close second.

    I voted for "It's a Sin". "Opportunities" was a very close second.

    Most of those songs to me, are pretty much impossible to rank. But I think "What have I done to deserve this" stands out just that little more than all the rest. The chorus to that song is just so cool!

    Hey LadyMysTrix. Aren't you supposed to be stalking me????

    That's the post I read and what inspired this Xistenza. I myself went for It's A Sin, but it was very close to call with West End Girls.

    I guess the reason why I chose 'It's a Sin' rather than 'West End Girls' was because I find some of PSB's songs rather miserablist and lyrically boring - 'West End Girls' certainly falls into that bracket - but agreed that it is a good song.

    Interesting you should say that Chopper, I believe that The Pet Shop Boys have often been criticized for their songs being melancholy. I think that these probably are fair criticisms.
