Top 10 Pet Shop Boys Songs
Tennant said in 1000 UK #1 Hits by Jon Kutner and Spencer Leigh, "We arrived in the studio and Bobby O had programmed Michael Jackson's Billie Jean drum pattern. Chris started to play along and I started playing chords. In terms of the lyrics, the inspiration for West End Girls came from The Message by Grandmaster Flash. I remember once staying at my cousin's house in Nottingham and we were watching some kind of gangster film with James Cagney, and just as I was dropping off to sleep, the lines 'sometimes you're better off dead, there's a gun in your hand and it's pointing to your head' came into my head and I thought 'that's quite good' so I went off to find a pen."
Not only the best, is also one of the best pop songs ever made.
This song has more than a good bassline, it has warming lyrics, a nice vocalist singing the song. And more
Great song, how is not on the list of Best songs ever?
The best hit of the Pet Shop Boys, wonderful, unique and definitely stands out hit this team.
Yes this is a great masterpiece, I cannot understand yet how 'west end girls' is considered pet shop boy's best. it's because that song was part from the gta v's soundtrack? haha
I love the chorus lines and the better vocals for real!
One of the best, if not the best, songs ever made.
For me, the best song from Pet Shop Boys, and I think that it will be the best from them also in the future. It's powerful melodic hymn of the 1980's, I like so much the intro of this song started and ended with thunder voice!
For me this song is actually the best song ever from PET SHOP BOYS and one of the greatest hits of the 1980's !
Domino Dancing is boring and dull, this song is a lot better for entrance at his top 3 well deserved.
The film Bronson put me off this song. It was fine until then.
The instrumental version is far better.
Fantastic song. Sad and emotional.
By far one of my favourite Pet Shop Boys Songs that deserves a lot more fame and acknowledgement. I don't think I've ever heard a song that packs so much love, emotion and beauty into it. To the point where it makes me feel like I want to cry.
I first heard the song in the summer of 2018 with my girlfriend. We love it! It's by far one of our personal favourites. Listened to it whilst being away from her for 3 weeks due to going on seperate summer holidays, made me feel hella emotional. From now on, I just can't listen to the song whilst away from her, it just makes me miss her even more and makes me feel emotional lol.
Although I'm a millennial, and brought up listening to a lot of 80s music, the song is just one of those examples that makes me wish I could experiences one of the best decades in human history.
Not my personal favourite version of this song, but it is to someone very dear to me. I don't suppose who sings it really matters; the words still hold the same beautiful meaning.
One of the most important collaborations ever with an past-gen female singer as Duty Springfield, simply a 8/10 song. Cool for its time yet!
Gonna break my life with this song playing on the yard.
This is real 80's music!
Should be top 5 in my opinion. A very catchy song that never gets old!
Simply the best song on "Please" and one of the best Electro-Pop songs ever!
Smart and catch song
It's the catchiest
Should be higher
Neil Tennant is sublime and the song is and will be immortal forever and ever.
Good song, why is it out of the Top 10?
One of the clearly best pet shop boys songs of all time. it deserves more. I think
Soothest song they made
Powerful lyrics and fabulous melody. The Pet Shop Boys at their very best
Their best song
