On this day

1997: The Boys learn of the death of Princess Diana under very different circumstances. Neil is at home when he turns on the radio and hears the news, while Chris finds out mid-route to Ibiza for vacation.

2003: Chris and Neil visit the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul.

2009: The issue of The New Yorker bearing this date on its cover includes in its 'Critic's Notebook' section a brief but glowing article by Sasha Frere-Jones promoting the Pet Shop Boys' upcoming dates at the city's Hammerstein Ballroom. The writer describes them as an 'utterly brilliant dance-music duo... [who] are part of a great tradition of slipping intense emotions into an envelope of wit that runs straight from Oscar Wilde to Noel Coward to the Boys.'

2013: 'Love Is a Bourgeois Construct' is released as a single via digital bundle in Germany and several other countries in continental Europe. (It will be released in the U.K. the following day and several days later in the U.S.)

Lyric of the day

Take that trip down memory lane
Where you’re never gonna feel the same
Where you’re never gonna take the blame
Change your name, now you out the game
So you head outside, feel the rain
Something in your brain can't break the chain
Same mistake again, fake the pain again,
Day to day you prowl, wakey wakey now
Holy cow you’re in doubt
You left and now you feel down
Your heart lies back in that town
So creep back in, don’t make a sound
Or lose your crown again, sleep around again
Tell your friends that you're proud
Or ask yourself what you really want from life
Don’t follow that crowd!

From Thursday (radio edit)
