10 Spectacular Pet Shop Boys Songs That Aren’t “West End Girls”

Jul 17, 2014
Bookmark and Share


“Those are the guys that did ‘West End Girls’ and that song about brains and money or whatever, right?”

Sigh.

Invariably, that’s the response I get from fellow Americans when trying to discuss Pet Shop Boys with them. And I’m tired of it. Sick and tired of it, folks.

Don’t get me wrong, I love “West End Girls” and “Opportunities (Let’s Make Lots of Money),” but there is so. Much. More.

I’m fanatical about Pet Shop Boys. I’m fanatical about them in the same way the Depeche Mode fans who commented on my recent Depeche Mode piece are. Although, I think I’m less angry? Then again, perhaps not. The conversation outlined above does make my blood boil and fill me with inexplicable rage. But I mean, I’m not so fanatical of a fan that I can’t recognize when Pet Shop Boys put out a clunker; Bilingual, Nightlife, and Release weren’t great. Rather spotty, if I’m being honest. In fact, some bits of that album run are downright silly.

But still.

Here are some things, according to Wikipedia, Americans should know about Pet Shop Boys right freaking now:

  • Guinness Book of World Records has named Pet Shop Boys the most successful duo in U.K. music history.
  • According to Billboard, as of 2003, they were listed as the 4th (behind Madonna, Janet Jackson, and Donna Summer) most successful act on the U.S. Dance/Club charts.
  • They’ve sold over 50 million albums worldwide, had 42 Top 30 singles, and 22 hits in the U.K. Top 10.
  • They are three-time Brit Award winners and six-time Grammy nominees.
  • We named last year’s Electric as one of the 125 best albums of the year (just sayin’).

And I could go on and on.

But I won’t. Instead, I present for your edification, 10 Pet Shop Boys songs that are not “West End Girls,” but just as good, maybe even better? (And these songs weren’t even singles!)

Once again, we’ve dumped these tunes into a Spotify playlist for ya, too.

You are from the US right ?

In the US they had a few big hits on the chart .But then after DOMINO DANCING their career ended there
because this video had been quite homoerotic
although there is a girl in this video and those two good looking latino boys are fighting, it is no question, that that video was too much for MTV 1988

I saw that video in the early 90s on MTV as a small child and recognized that something is strange about that video and that those two boys must be in love in that video

however in europe the pet shop boys had still huge hits
in my country GERMANY if you ask somebody in my age (22-35) about the pet shop boys, they will say GO WEST

I know a lot of people who have that album VERY on which GO WEST was but they only know that song nothing more from that album
