When Behaviour came out reviews described it as when the Pet Shop Boys got serious, a bit over simplistic as So hard is still a classic hi tempo tune and the first 2 lps were hardly shallow pop fluff.
This week's Monday moment comes from still my favourite single of theirs. A series of snap shots as Neil Tennant looks back on his youth "I came across a cache of old photos and invitations to teenage parties dress in white one said with quotations"
I love the way Neil Tennant's voice gets across that sense of longing , wistfulness and regret all tied up in thinking of the past and a disappearing youth. Not the world's best singer but my monday moment this week is 2 fold , firstly the confidence in the song that means that almost 2 mins is given to set the mood before the vocals start. Secondly as Simon Cowell would say "Neil you nailed that lyric and made the song all your own"
