On this day

1999: After their American record company expresses doubts whether Nightlife has any tracks that would make a good single in the U.S., the Pet Shop Boys begin writing 'Happiness Is an Option'—which, as it turns out, is never released as a single anyway.

2007: The Boys perform in Bergen, Norway.

2014: Still in New York City, Neil and Chris enjoy an evening with Danny Tenaglia at Brooklyn's Output dance club. (The next day, Chris enthuses on their website that they 'just had the BEST time' there.)

2015: New in U.K. record stores today: 'Perfect Motion' - Jon Savage's Secret History of Second-Wave Psychedelia 1988-93, a vinyl-only various-artists compilation that includes the Extended Version of the PSB track 'The Sound of the Atom Splitting.'
