This, to me, is one of the Pet Shop Boys’ greatest songs. The music arrangements, the lyrics, and the disco beat just make it great as a drive-time anthem.
Here’s a sample of the lyrics:
I was faced with a choice at a difficult age
Would I write a book? or should I take to the stage?
But in the back of my head I heard distant feet,
Che Guevara and Debussy to a disco beat
I think it’s amazing the Boys are still making music today, though I’d admit I haven’t checked out their hits from the past few years. The ’80s was truly a great time for music, too bad all the experimentation died with techno and Celine Dion in the early 1990s.
