On This Day


The Boys record new versions of 'My Night' and 'For All of Us.'


They work on two new tracks: 'Your Early Stuff' and 'The Out Crowd,' the latter of which will eventually become the song 'Hell.'


They listen to orchestral arrangement demos for their next album, Elysium. The singers of Sonos also add support vocals to 'Ego Music' and 'Breathing Space.'


Inspired by a speech on the subject of homophobia made at the beginning of the month by Irish drag artist Panti Bliss, Neil and Chris begin work on a new recording, 'Oppressive (The Best Gay Possible),' that sets excerpts from that speech to music.


It's announced today that on March 17 the Terence Higgins Trust will auction off an opportunity to 'meet 'n' greet' the Pet Shop Boys at one of their upcoming Royal Opera House shows. The money raised will go toward providing services for people living with HIV.


They perform this evening in Edinburgh, Scotland—their fourth U.K. concert in five days.

You seem to be
inevitable to me
like a memory of the future
I was and will be with you
Over and over again
I keep tasting that sweet madeleine
looking back at my life now and then
asking: if not later then when?

It's taken me all of my life
It's taken me all of my life
to find you
