Pet Shop Boys “The Pop Kids” goes Top 10 on Billboard Dance Club songs chart!
(From Sacks & Co.)
The Pet Shop Boys, one of the most prolific acts in electronic pop, return yet again with their Start Price-helmed 13th studio album Super, due out in April. (Fun fact: The duo’s very first record, Please, came out in March of 1986 — almost exactly 30 years ago.)
Pet Shop Boys have always championed an unapologetic love of disco music and pop hits, and this thumping tune is no exception: “We were young, but imagined we were so sophisticated / Telling everyone we knew that rock was overrated,” Neil sings. It’s like a lyrical nod to “Paninaro” (“I don’t like rockabilly or rock ‘n’ roll particularly“) and “Can You Forgive Her?” (“She’s made you some kind of laughing stock / Because you dance to disco and you don’t like rock.“)
