          3. I missed something here, but I recognized it so well!?

              1. 0:22-0:56 It's A Sin = confirmed
              2. 0:57-1:30 Being Boring = confirmed
              3. 1:31-2:02 I missed something here, but I recognized it so well!? = what was that??
              4. 2:03-2:49 So Hard the first part is barely recognizable because they turned it into a waltz
              6. 2:50-3:01 Jealousy

              6. 3:48-4:32 I'm not even sure if these are two separate songs.
              6. 4:33-4:48 What Have I Done To Deserve This? = confirmed

                  isn't that "How can you expect to be taken seriously" ?

                                  • I have discovered "Jealousy" and last night was such a memorable night.

                                    I just woke up at my classmates place, we had a party last night, everybody else is still sleeping, two of them on the floor, one sleeping beside me, two in the couch.. It was such a spontantenous and carefree night - in the spirit of PSB (eventually)!

                                    At first I was having these horrible thoughts: "what on earth am I doing here, leave Daniel, go away, these people mean nothing to you"... why did have these thoughts? Because we ate pizza and listened to music... until they all wanted to watch f*****g X-Factor... Swedish version! Disgusting. Completely. I can't distinguish it.

                                    However... since i couldn't leave i realized: "you have to get everybody drunk", mission completed! We listened to music, and had some real fun.

                                    UNTIL.... around 02:30... when I took over as the DJ:

                                    1. Give It A Go
                                    2. Being Boring
                                    3. Always On My Mind
                                    4. What Have I Done To Deserve This?
                                    5. Being Boring
                                    6. Being Boring
                                    7. Being Boring
                                    8. Being Boring
                                    9. Jealousy (it came on the shuffle - thank God)
                                    10. Being Boring
                                    11. Always On My Mind
                                    12. Always On My Mind
                                    13. Suburbia
                                    14. Being Boring
                                    15. Being Boring
                                    16. Being Boring
                                    17. Always On My Mind
                                    18. Being Boring
                                    19. Jealousy
                                    20. Jealousy

                                    THE PET SHOP BOYS EFFECT:

                                    First. I couldn't resist but crying.. rivers.. with the combination of Give iT A Go (my personal discover, my first personal meeting with Pet Shop Boys) with Being Boring (a song which I relate so much with my childhood, with my brothers and sisters). I just couldn't resist it. It was such a happy feeling. I have grown older... that nostalgia combined with my life now melted together into one. And we all sat down in a sort of ring, and they listened to me and i told them about Pet Shop Boys (NO ONE RECOGNIZED THEIR NAME! ) ... and eventually...

                                    Everybody started crying at Being Boring. I'm not kidding.
                                    This messy student party turned into a cry-fest with that playlist above. And even when I said "Let's do the Gangnam Style instead now"... they didn't want to..

                                    That feeling which I associate so much with PSB. Freedom! Be at ease with yourself. Look out the window - the world is out there: EXPERIENCE!

                                    The Pet Shop Boys effect.

                                    I felt so lucky hearing Being Boring last night. I'm almost in tears while crying this. But they mean so much. I just remember a time when we were all together, at home, my family. I remember how I, as the youngest, looked up to them others and wanted to be like them.

                                    Vi skall aldrig bli tråkiga. Vi skall icke!
                                    Luc

                                      Pets will never leave me, so many memories they connect me, make me feel secure. Being Boring, just wow.

                                                        I found this comment on youtube ( i don't know if its reliable )

                                                        "The only reason I am commenting is that as it happens I was the programmer/mixer on that session and helped create the 'robot voice' and did the french/english translation and can say confidently that the inspiration for the voice was not from the Air track(which had not been created)... it is just 'text the to voice speech' in any old simple macintosh so most likely used on many many songs."

                                                        • ^ Thank you. The lyrics are not complete, for example they don't include the robot voice at the beginning of the song. I can't find the complete lyrics.

                                                          It starts something like

                                                          but maybe you're of ice/advice :-?

                                                          but maybe you're of ice/advice or is it between your ??? :-?
                                                          I'm holding back

                                                          Sadly, I can't watch that YouTube video nor can I see the comments posted because both are banned in Germany thanks to our music police GEMA. I would have asked that producer guy directly.
                                                          And if that's the simple macintosh text-to-voice then I want a macintosh!

                                                            Are PSB your #1 favourite act ever?
                                                            Why did you never tell me about Jealousy? :(
                                                            I thought we were friends! :(

                                                            I have cried this whole day! Almost. Without alcohol, without drugs... the size of the tears this morning were huge, the snot was everywhere.

                                                            The music has reached a higher level. I can't handle it, I can't resist it.

                                                            and you are no exception

                                                            • have you heard Behaviour Dan? Since I notice you mentioned Jealousy.

                                                              I notice you're loving Elysium (which sadly I find okay, but it hasn't really done much for me like the classic PSB stuff), but most people have been saying Elysium is a modern day Behaviour. Behaviour is also downbeat like Elysium but I think it may very well be their absolute masterpiece. If you like Elysium, you'll worship Behaviour IMO.
