My Current Biweekly/Fortnightly PSB Survey
Should the Pet Shop Boys ever release a Disco 5 album?
Yes, absolutely!
No, absolutely not!
  Maybe, especially— please select any and all that you would like: *
   If it consists of new (never previously released) extended mixes of classic hit PSB songs that don't stray "too far" from the originals
If it consists of mixes by Chris and Neil of their own songs
   If it consists of mixes of non-single PSB songs that have never previously been remixed
   If it consists of new mixes by Neil and Chris of other artists' songs
   If it consists of previously released "classic" remixes (their all-time most popular and/or own all-time favorites)
   If it consists of previously "unofficial" fan mixes that the Boys have judged to be especially good
   If it consists of tracks determined by some other criterion not listed here
If you choose this option, please feel free to share your alternate or additional criterion using the "Comments" feature on the "Current Results" page.
Current Results**            My Current PSB Survey

*Please note that if you choose either the absolute "Yes" or the absolute "No" option at the top, it will automatically de-select any of the "Maybe" options you may have already chosen, and if you choose any of the "Maybe" options, it will automatically de-select either the "Yes" or "No" option if you had previously picked that.

**As in all of my polls in which voters can make more than one choice, my survey service provider automatically calculates the "Current Results" based on the total number of votes, not the total number of voters, which produces deceptively small percentage figures. When I post the final results at the end of this survey, I will calculate them based on the total number of voters, which will yield more reasonable percentages.

What This Website Is All About

This website has no "official" connection to the Pet Shop Boys. It merely presents my own personal commentary—often including attempted explanations and interpretations—on the songs of my favorite contemporary pop band. Of course, this commentary has often been influenced by what the Pet Shop Boys themselves, Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe, have said about their music and by what others have previously written. Nevertheless, many of the observations I make here are original with me.

By no means am I suggesting that these are the "only" or "correct" interpretations. In fact, it's typical of great art, even great pop art, to lend itself to multiple interpretations. And I do consider the Pet Shop Boys to be the creators of great pop art. So you can take or leave my interpretations as you wish. If you disagree, please don't take offense. Rather, enjoy the fact that we're both fans of music rich enough to invite different interpretations.

Despite my best efforts, I have no doubt that I'm guilty of at least some factual errors. I recognize this fact and apologize in advance for any that may have slipped past me. I'll certainly correct any errors that come to my attention.

This website will be most attractive and legible when viewed on a full screen at a resolution of at least 1024 x 768 pixels. But resolution much higher than that may result in the text being too small for your reading comfort; if you find that to be the case, you may wish to use your browser's zoom-in capabilities. In addition, this site makes extensive use of javascript; if your browser program isn't configured to use javascript or activescript, some features will not work properly.
