My 10 favorite PSB remixes (not counting hit single and original album versions)

  1. I Wouldn’t Normally Do This Kind of Thing (Voxigen Mix by Gary Jones and Chris Le Blanc)
  2. How Can You Expect to Be Taken Seriously? (Extended Mix by Brothers in Rhythm)
  3. A Red Letter Day (Trouser Autoerotic Decapitation Mix by Trouser Enthusiasts)*
  4. Did You See Me Coming? (Possibly More Mix by Pet Shop Boys)
  5. Jealousy (Extended Mix by David Jacob)**
  6. What Have I Done to Deserve This? (Disco Mix by Shep Pettibone)
  7. New York City Boy (The Almighty Definitive Mix by Martin Norris and Jon Dixon)
  8. It’s a Sin (Disco Mix by Stephen Hague and Pet Shop Boys)
  9. It’s Alright (Extended Version by Trevor Horn)
  10. Rent (Extended Mix by François Kevorkian)

*Boosted a couple of notches by virtue of the title of the mix.
**Boosted a notch for quoting Othello.

Honorable mention: "Can You Forgive Her?" (Swing Version produced by Richard Niles and Pet Shop Boys) – It's not really a remix—rather, it's a completely different recording—but it's nonetheless a terrific alternate version of the song. If it had been a remix, I would've ranked it fairly high, probably at #4.

It's probably worth noting that only one of these remixes (the Possibly More Mix of "Did You See Me Coming?") is younger than this century itself; that is, it's the only one released since the year 2000. This anomaly underscores what I personally consider to be the overall decline in quality of PSB remixes (and of remixes in general, not just of PSB tracks) during the latter half of their career. That, however, is a matter of taste.
