I'm reading through my compilation which I update every week, of my top 20 songs chart from 1996-2012. I have reached artists/groups under P
and reacted to something funny.
Pet Shop Boys highest charting song is Being Boring
which peaked at #3 in 1999 and dropped out after 5 weeks. 3-3-8-20-16-out
The groups lowest charting song is The Resurrectionist
which peaked at #14 in 2006 but it left the chart after 17 weeks. 19-20-20-16-14-14-14-20-14-18-17-17-15-16-14-20-19
Which also makes it their longest charting song!
It is featured as a B-Side on the lead single "I'm With Stupid" to their 2006 album "Fundamental". I'm With Stupid peaked at #20 and dropped out after 2 weeks. So.... in my opinion.. wrong A-Side?
I don't remember it staying for that long, but listening to it now I remember that I used to love it although not playing it that often. I think there was a remix as well which I found great.
Oh well! I've heard only a snippet from their new song "Winner" - and it doesn't sound very exciting unfortunately. Still looking forward to new material though. I'm a fan of their sound and I have always been in touch with their music thanks to my older brothers playing their music when I was a kid. I think that's why The Resurrectionist did so well - it was the first song I discovered by myself from them
