Everyday is Like Sunday, Except for Blue Monday and Ruby Tuesday, and...Well, Friday I'm in Love: Weekly Mix #55

I watched the Brit Awards a couple of weeks ago, and the only part that made it worth it was the finale with Pet Shop Boys; although, I could have done without the appearance of Lady Ga Ga and Brandon Flowers (the former looked like a blue willow china stripper with a broken arm, and the latter looked like an owl murderer). Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe still exude that aloof cool that elevates the potentially tacky and disposably popular into a higher art form (if you have any doubts, read Michael Bracewell). Their tenth studio album, Yes, will release later this month, so there will likely be a review post then. I also need to say that I would love to have a coat like Neil Tennant's.

In honour of the Pet Shop Boys stellar performance, this week's mix will be a synthpop one, the third one since this blog began. And it opens with the excellence of Suburbia. This one's called Run With the Dogs Tonight.

Both Neil and Chris should be knighted for services to music
