The recent Pet Shops Boys album, Yes, is ready for me to pick up from my library. In 2010 they will be eligible for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, although they won't be inducted. Just ask Kraftwerk and Eurythmics. Maybe there needs to be a pop music hall of fame. Or dance music. Or good music. There you go, the Good Music Hall of Fame.
I used to lament the fact that I liked them a lot, and maybe that was distracting me from liking bands like The Pretenders and Squeeze--bands I clearly should have liked more. And then they released Behavior, an absolute work of art. And you know who agrees with me on that? Axl Rose. The song "November Rain" was inspired, at least in part, by "My October Symphony."
Anyway, here's a track from their latest, from a few months ago. After I pick up the CD, I'll see if there's a better track to feature soon.
