Parralox - Lyrics (Official Website)


Parralox - Flamboyant




Written by Neil Tennant & Christoper Lowe

Verse 1
You live in a world of excess
Where more is more and less is much less
A day without fame is a waste
And a question of need is a question of taste

You're so flamboyant the way you look
It gets you so much attention
Your sole employment is getting more
You want police intervention
You're so flamboyant the way you live
You really care that they stare
And the press deployment
Is always there, It's what you do for enjoyment

Verse 2
You live in a time of decay
When the worth of a man is how much he can play
Every day all the public must know
Where you are, what you do
Cause your life is a show and

You're so flamboyant the way you live
And it's not even demeaning
You're so flamboyant It's like a drug
You use to give your life meaning
You're so flamboyant the way you look
It gets you so much attention
Your sole employment is getting more
You want police intervention

Middle 8
Every actor needs
An audience
Every action is
A performance
It all takes courage you know it
Just crossing the street well, it's almost heroic
You're so flamboyant

Verse 3
There you are, at another preview
In a pose, the artist and you
To look so loud may be considered tacky
Collectors wear black clothes by Issay Miyake

You're so flamboyant the way you look
It gets you so much attention
Your sole employment is getting more
You want police intervention
You're so flamboyant
The way you live
You really care that they stare
And the press deployment
Is always there
It's what you do for enjoyment
You're so flamboyant
You're so flamboyant

Additional Info

From the Electrozombies website :

Prism" (A Tribute To Pet Shop Boys) will be available on all major online stores (iTunes, Amazon MP3, Google Music and Loudr) on December 12th, 2016. The official hashtag for this tribute is #PrismPSB. Please always use this hashtag if you share on any social media channel!

We’re the Pet Shop Boys

After the successful compilation ‘Apop We Love You' (A Tribute To Apoptygma Berzerk) we began to think: “What’s next?“. As LOVE COMES QUICKLY it was crystal clear that the next tribute must be dedicated to the ‚Pet Shop Boys‘.

Would you have thought, that their debut album `PLEASE` has had its 30th anniversary early this year? And that´s one more good reason to honour this highly creative band which gave us awesome pop songs throughout their whole carreer.

An iconic tribute title

The RELEASE is called ‘Prism' (A Tribute To Pet Shop Boys). Prism is the perfect choice for a simple and strong buzz word as to be found on every PSB album.

We also wanted to honour Pet Shop Boys´ continuity of album naming and artwork. Further it gives a hint on the content as well. The listener may enjoy a full prism of new experience, while listening to unique new interpretations of classic PSB songs.
BTW: For the digital release we have created an animated cover artwork that displays well-known iconic objects and graphics that we associate with the boys.

A tribute full of passion

22 participants from all over the world made it to be a part of the compilation. They all share the passion to be a fan of the Pet Shop Boys. Each song really has a unique, new style. We’re thrilled by all submissions.

Parralox from Australia comes along with a super catchy version of ‘Flamboyant’, while Machinista from Sweden covers ‘West And Girls’ in a cool and groovy way. The brasilian band Technique performing ‘So Hard’, and Lucifer’s Dream from the Netherlands covers ‘One More Chance’ in a Minimal Electro style. Furthermore the compilation contains an EBM version of ‘Surburbia’ by canadian artist ‘nTTx’.

The compilation is full of gorgeous cover versions from many internationally well known bands of the dark electronic music scene. We hope you will enjoy a whole new approach to all our beloved PSB-Songs and find a couple of new bands on this tribute which are surely worth a second glance.
