    Ok whatever you say and I don’t really care what you say I am the worlds biggest Pet Shop Boys fan. Since I heard West End Girls in 1985 I was hooked. The guys are very talented at what they do and they have released some of best music in the last almost 30 years. So I love the Pet Shop Boys. I also love any remixes or remakes of their music that I hear.

    So I ran across this wonderful house bordering on trance remake of their hit West End Girls by James Talk & Ridney and I love what I hear. These guys are great and they keep collaborating on many different cuts and I’m hooked at what they release. Check out both the original Pet Shop Boys version and the James Talk & Ridney versions below.

  2. Live For Today by Cicero & Sylvia Mason-James

    The Crying Game soundtrack was mostly known for the song The Crying Game by Boy George. It was a whole more about that album that most folks don’t know. The album was produced by the Pet Shop Boys and included other great songs which included a remake of the Shannon 80s hit Let The Music Play by Carroll Thompson and of course two awesome versions of a little known act called Cicero with their song Live For Today sung by Sylvia Mason-James. Absolutely love the vocals by Sylvia here.

    If you like Pet Shop Boys or anything synth pop from the late 80s and early 90s then you will certainly love this song by Cicero. I think they are definitely worth discovering as not much is known about Cicero. In the early 90s Cicero released an album called Future Boy but it failed to chart anywhere. Still though this song Live For Today produced by Pet Shop Boys is quite strong.

    The Orchestral version is the more synthed up version whereas the Gospel version is more laidback and sort of trip-hoppy. Check them out below.

  3. I’m Not Scared by Eighth Wonder & Pet Shop Boys

    I’m Not Scared was produced and recorded for Patsy Kensit’s band Eighth Wonder but it became such a hit for Eighth Wonder the Pet Shop Boys decided to record it themselves as well and release it on their dance album Introspective in a complete orchestral/dance version. Their both the same song but sound completely different where the Eight Wonder version is more pop dance with touches of Hi-NRG and the Pet Shop Boys version being dramatic Hi-NRG. Both great versions. The versions below are the Disco Version of Eighth Wonder’s I’m Not Scared (the original version off their Fearless album) and the Introspective version from the Pet Shop Boys.

  4. It’s Gonna Be Alright (Original 2001 Mix) by Pussy 2000

    This has got to be one of the best mash-up’s ever made. It came out before mash-ups were really in vogue and got big – so it’s done quite perfectly and it’s quite listenable compared to most mash-ups. The track incorporates elements of Rock The Casbah by The Clash and also It’s Alright by Sterling Void. Of course you’ll probably remember the Pet Shop Boys version of It’s Alright and not know that it’s originally done by Sterling Void.

    I have both versions below as well as Rock The Casbah and The Pussy 2000 mash-up. Check them out and let me know what you think.
