Chorus 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

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.
