Pet Shop Boys

The problem with the Pet Shop Boys is that the lead singer always reminds me of Eric Idle.

Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you’re chewing on life’s gristle
Don’t grumble, give a whistle
And this’ll help things turn out for the best…

And…always look on the bright side of life…
Always look on the light side of life…

Sometimes you’re better off dead
There’s gun in your hand and it’s pointing at your head
You think you’re mad, too unstable
Kicking in chairs and knocking down tables
In a restaurant in a West End town
Call the police, there’s a madman around
Running down underground to a dive bar
In a West End town

See? For a second you thought they were the same song, didn’t you?

    Hmm. There is some similarities in the voice — and, yeah, I am so riffing on the PSB doing the chorus to “Bright Side of Life.”
