PET SHOP BOYS. 1981. HISTORIA DE UN GRUPO. Videos: DOMINO DANCING + IT´S A SIN + HEART + SUBURBIA + ALWAYS ON MY MIND + WHAT HAVE I DONE TO DESERVE THIS + BEING BORING + NEW YORK CITY BOY + LOVE ETC.

Pet Shop Boys está formado por Neil Tennant y Chris Lowe. Ambos se conocieron en una tienda de electrónica en agosto de 1981. Dada su común afición por la música, decidieron trabajar juntos. Durante sus comienzos se llamaron "West End" pero pronto ese nombre daría paso al definitivo de Pet Shop Boys.
Su primer trabajo publicado fue una primera versión producida por Bobby Orlando del que luego sería su primer número 1: "West end girls". Sin embargo en aquella ocasión pasó desapercibido entre el público. Epic, la discográfica que les había fichado, decidió rescindirles el contrato y el 1985 firman contrato con Parlophone.
En julio de ese mismo año aparece "Opportunites (Let's make a lot of money)". El disco no consigue entrar en las listas de los importantes, pero en octubre graban una nueva versión de "West end Girls", con Stepehen Hague en la producción. Esta vez sí es la definitiva y los Pet Shop Boys consiguen colocarse como número uno de las listas británicas durante dos semanas seguidas.
En abril de 1986 los Pet Shop Boys publican su primer álbum, "Please". Además del "West end girls", el disco contiene temas como "Suburbia", "Love comes quickly" y conocida "Opportunities". Con "West end girls", el grupo consiguió llegar al número uno de la lista Billboard.
Después de publicar un álbum de remezclas, los Pet Shop Boys publican su segundo álbum bajo el título de "Actually". El primer sencillo estraído de este trabajo es el titulado "It' a sin", que llegó al número 1 en Reino Unido. A final de año publicaron el sencillo "Always on my mind", del que vendieron más de un millón de copias.
En 1988 Pet Shop Boys colabora en la producción de primer disco del grupo Eight Wonder liderado por la cantante y actriz Patsy Kensit. Ese mismo año publican su tercer álbum, titulado "Introspective". El álbum incluía temas tan importantes en la discografía de Pet Shop Boys como "Always on my mind", "Left to my own devices", "Domino dancing" y "It´s allright" fueron los singles. "Introspective" fue, sin duda, uno de los discos más importantes del grupo. Y ello a pesar de incluir solamente seis temas, casi todos de más de seis minutos de duración. 
A mediados de 1989 realizan su primera gira por Hong Kong, Japón y Reino Unido. También colaboran con Liza Minelly en la canción "Losing my mind".
En 1990 aparece "Behaviour", el cuarto disco de los Pet Shop Boys, que resulta ser un pequeño fracaso, sobre todo después de compararlo con sus anteriores trabajos. Peco después publican su primer recopilatorio, titulado "Discography".
En 1993 aparece su quinto álbum de estudio, "Very". Con este álbum consiguen por primera vez situar un álbum en la lista de los más vendidos en el Reino Unido, ya que los anteriores habían llegado a ser número uno y dos, pero nunca llegaron a lo más alto.
En 1993 publican "Bilingual", un trabajo que pasa discretamente por las listas de éxitos. En 1996 aparece "Nightlife", para el que los Pet Shop Boys modifican su imagen, apareciendo con pelucas y vestidos de samurai. A pesar de ello, el disco tampoco tuvo un éxito destacable.
En el año 2002 editan "Release". Este disco tiene un sonido menos electrónico y más melódico que en sus anteriores trabajos, de lo que resulta una música más romántica y sosegada, algo que ciertamente no gustó demasiado a sus fans más incondicionales. 
En el 2003 aparece "Popart: The hits", un nuevo álbum recopilatorio que recoge sus 33 top 20 logrados en Gran Bretaña, que han convertido a Pet Shop Boys en el dúo con mayor éxito de todos los tiempos.
En mayo del 2006 Pet Shop Boys publican "Fundamental", el noveno álbum de estudio del dúo y que incluye 11 temas nuevos y uno, "Numb", escrito por Diane Warren. Para este trabajo, Pet Shop Boys han contado con la colaboración del productor Trevor Horn, con quien ya trabajaron en alguna ocasión anterior. En este trabajo, las canciones tratan sobre temas polémicos, como la implantación del DNI en el Reino Unido y la guerra al terrorismo. El primer sencillo extraído del álbum, "I’m with stupid", está inspirada en la relación entre Tony Blair y George Bush, creando una sátira sobre la relación entre ambos, contada como "una historia de amor incomprensible para el resto del mundo", según sus propias palabras.

DOMINO DANCING

(All day, all day)

I don't know why, I don't know how

I thought I loved you, but I'm not sure now
I've seen you look at strangers too many times
A love-you-once is of a, a different kind

Remember when we felt the sun

A love like paradise, how hot it burned
A threat of distant thunder, the sky was red
And when you walked, you always - turned every head


(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day) Domino dancing
(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day) Domino dancing

I thought that when we fought I was to blame

But now I know you play a different game
I've watched you dance with danger, still wanting more
Add another number to the score


(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day) Domino dancing
(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day) Domino dancing

When you look around you wonder

Do you play to win?
Or are you just a bad loser?

(All day, all day)

(All day, all day)


(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day, domino dancing)

(All day, all day)

(All day, all day)

I don't know why, I don't know how

I'd thought I loved you, but I'm not sure now
I hear the thunder crashing, the sky is dark
And now a storm is breaking within my heart

(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day) Domino dancing
(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day, domino dancing)

(All day, all daeheheheheheheh)

(All day, all daeheheheheheheh)

(All day, all day)

(All day, all day)
(Domino dancing)

(All day, all day)

(All day, all day)


(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day, domino dancing)

(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down

(All day, all day) Domino dancing
(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day)

IT'S A SIN

When I look back upon my life
It's always with a sense of shame
I've always been the one to blame
For everything I long to do
No matter when or where or who
Has one thing in common, too

It's a, it's a, it's a, it's a sin
It's a sin
Everything I've ever done
Everything I ever do
Every place I've ever been
Everywhere I'm going to
It's a sin

At school they taught me how to be
So pure in thought and word and deed
They didn't quite succeed
For everything I long to do
No matter when or where or who
Has one thing in common, too

It's a, it's a, it's a, it's a sin
It's a sin
Everything I've ever done
Everything I ever do
Every place I've ever been
Everywhere I'm going to
It's a sin


Father, forgive me,
I tried not to do it
Turned over a new leaf,
then tore right through it
Whatever you taught me,
I didn't believe it
Father, you fought me,
'cause I didn't care
And I still don't understand

So I look back upon my life
Forever with a sense of shame
I've always been the one to blame
For everything I long to do
No matter when or where or who
Has one thing in common, too


It's a, it's a, it's a, it's a sin
It's a sin
Everything I've ever done
Everything I ever do
Every place I've ever been
Everywhere I'm going to
It's a sin

It's a, it's a, it's a, it's a sin
It's a, it's a, it's a, it's a sin

i hear your heart beat next to me
i'm in love with you; i mean what i say
i'm in love with you, and you don't know
what it means to be with you

SUBURBIA

Lost in the high street, where the dogs run
roaming suburban boys
mother's got a hairdo to be done
she says they're too old for toys
stood by the bus stop with a felt pen
in this suburban hell
and in the distance a police car
to break the suburban spell
let's take a ride, and run with the dogs tonight
in suburbia
you can't hide, run with the dogs tonight
in suburbia

Break the window by the town hall
listen, the siren screams
there in the distance, like a roll call
of all the suburban dreams

let's take a ride, and run with the dogs tonight
in suburbia
you can't hide, run with the dogs tonight
in suburbia
I only wanted something else to do but hang around
i only wanted something else to do but hang around
i only wanted something else to do but hang around
i only wanted something else to do but hang around
It's on the front page of the papers
this is their hour of need
where's a policeman when you need one
to blame the colour tv?
let's take a ride, and run with the dogs tonight
in suburbia
you can't hide, run with the dogs tonight
in suburbia
take a ride, and run with the dogs tonight
in suburbia
you can't hide, run with the dogs tonight
in suburbia
run with the dogs tonight
in suburbia

you can't hide
in suburbia
in suburbia
in suburbia
in suburbia
in suburbia

ALWAYS ON MY MIND

Maybe I didn't treat you
quite as good as I should
Maybe I didn't love you
quite as often as I could
Little things I should've said and done,
I never took the time
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind


Maybe I didn't hold you
all those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you,
I'm so happy that you're mine
If I made you feel second best,
I'm so sorry, I was blind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn't died
Give me one more chance to keep you satisfied
Satisfied



Little things I should've said and done,
I never took the time
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn't died
Give me one more chance to keep you satisfied


You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind



Maybe I didn't treat you
quite as good as I should
Maybe I didn't love you
quite as often as I could
Maybe I didn't hold you
all those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you,
I'm so happy that you're mine

You always wanted a lover

now i can do what i want to - forever
How am i gonna get through?

At night, the people come and go
they talk too fast, and walk too slow
chasing time from hour to hour
i pour the drinks and crush the flowers

What have i, what have i done to deserve this?
what have i, what have i, what have i done to deserve this?
what have i, what have i, what have i ...

BEING BORING

(tennant/lowe)
---------------
i came across a cache of old photos
and invitations to teenage parties
"dress in white" one said, with quotations
from someone's wife, a famous writer
in the nineteen-twenties
when you're young you find inspiration
in anyone who's ever gone
and opened up a closing door
she said: "we were never feeling bored
'cause we were never being boring
we had too much time to find for ourselves
and we were never being boring
we dressed up and fought, then thought: "make amends"

and we were never holding back or worried that
time would come to an end
When i went i left from the station
with a haversack and some trepidation
someone said: "if you're not careful
you'll have nothing left and nothing to care for
in the nineteen-seventies"
but i sat back and looking forward
my shoes were high and i had scored
i'd bolted through a closing door
i would never find myself feeling bored
'cause we were never being boring
we had too much time to find for ourselves
and we were never being boring
we dressed up and fought, then thought: "make amends"

and we were never holding back or worried that
time would come to an end
we were always hoping that, looking back
you could always rely on a friend
Now i sit with different faces
in rented rooms and foreign places
all the people i was kissing
some are here and some are missing
in the nineteen-nineties
i never dreamt that i would get to be
the creature that i always meant to be
but i thought in spite of dreams
you'd be sitting somewhere here with me
'cause we were never being boring
we had too much time to find for ourselves
and we were never being boring
we dressed up and fought, then thought: "make amends"

and we were never holding back or worried that
time would come to an end
we were always hoping that, looking back
you could always rely on a friend
and we were never being boring
we had too much time to find for ourselves
and we were never being boring
we dressed up and fought, then thought: "make amends"

and we were never being boring
we were never being bored
'cause we were never being boring
we were never being bored

NEW YORK CITY BOY

When you're a boy
some days are tough
lying on your bed
playing punk rock and stuff
home is a boot camp
you gotta escape
wanna go and wander
in the ticker-tape
you feel the deals is real
you're a new york city boy
so young, so run
into new york city
New york city boy
you'll never have a bored day
cause you're a new york
city boy

where seventh avenue
meets broadway
The street is amazing
the hoochies unreal
check out all the hardware
at the latest deal
hear a song
that's the bomb!
if you don't get the mix
it's gone eighty-six
you feel the deal is real
you're in new york city
New york city boy
you'll never have a bored day
œcause you're a new york
city boy

where seventh avenue
meets broadway
new york city boy
this is your reward day
œcause you're a new york
city boy
where seventh avenue
meets broadway
Then as the evening falls
you can return its calls
You feel the deal is real
you're a new york city boy
so young, so run
into new york city

LOVE ETC.

You need more You need more You need more You need more
You need more You need more You need more You need more
You need more

Boy it's tough getting on in the world

When the sun doesn't shine and a boy needs a girl
It’s about getting out of a rut, you need luck
But you’re stuck and you don’t know how, oh

(Don't have to be) A big bucks Hollywood star

(Don't have to drive) A super car to get far
(Don't have to live) A life of power and wealth
(Don't have to be) Beautiful but it helps
(Don’t have to buy) A house in Beverly Hills
(Don’t have to have) Your daddy paying the bills
(Don’t have to live) A life of power and wealth
(Don't have to be) Beautiful but it helps


You need more
Than a big blank check to be a lover, or
A Gulfstream jet to fly you door to door
Somewhere chic on another shore

You need more You need more You need more

You need more You need more You need more
You need love
You need love
You need love

Too much of anything

Is never enough
Too much of everything
Is never enough

Boy it's tough getting on in the world

When the sun doesn't shine and a boy needs a girl
It’s about getting out of a rut, you need luck
But you’re stuck and you don’t know how, oh

(Don't have to be) A big bucks Hollywood star

(Don't have to drive) A super car to get far
(Don't have to wear) A smile much colder than ice
(Don't have to be) Beautiful but it’s nice

You need more

Than the Gerhard Richter hangin’ on your wall
A chauffeur-driven limousine on call
To drive your wife and lover to a white tie ball

You need more You need more You need more

You need more You need more You need more
You need love


I believe that we can achieve
The love that we need
I believe, call me naïve
Love is for free

(Don't have to be) A big bucks Hollywood star

(Don't have to drive) A super car to get far
(Don’t have to live) A life of power and wealth
(Don't have to be) Beautiful but it helps
Beautiful but it helps
Beautiful but it helps
