.....Baby why don't we live together.... I just been re-discovering Pet Shop Boys on vinyl and it has re-energized some great parts that I failed to hear on their other plethora of different format releases. Not to mentioned that Neil Tennant's book recent release of 100 Lyrics and a Poem has brought forth his amazing lyric writing and put these songs into a different orbit. This synth pop crooner This one is a total ironic ode to Madonna's "Into The Groove and as matter of fact was actually written with her in mind. So here "Why Don't We Live Together" gets the Disco Monk treatment with two versions a dramatic and twisted string version and another more sync piano focused. Enjoy!

"Devotion" as in I want to give you devotion. Here I'm serving you a couple of different versions of this gorgeous classic falsetto from Byron Stingily during his Ten City reign with one of my all time favorite house breaks taken from the flawless outro from Pet Shop Boys "Always on my Mind" from their house infused classic "Introspective" which by the way, I just happened to get he newly pressed vinyl release and I must say it sounds incredible. Then I did some pretty decent string orchestration along with some synth riffs. I was actually so impressed with them that I ended up doing another version totally stripped of beats adding some Indian tabla and making a totally ambient meditative version. Enjoy!

I think at this point I will probably end up remixing the entire Pet Shop Boys catalogue considering how extensive it is probably not but they always uplift with their unique and smart pop sensibility. they always bring me home. I was a total Pet Head last night so here are two gems. Their sublime "Rent" and their B side classic "It Must Be Obvious". Enjoy
