Radio 56, side B, track 9: “West End Girls” by Pet Shop Boys

Pet Shop Boys - West End GirlsOh, Pet Shop Boys, sit back and enjoy the ride for the next several days, because it’s all gon’ be the same songs I’d just recorded on the countdown but for some reason felt that it was a less-than-successful recording.  This time, it was because I’d cut off the intro because it was the beginning of a new side of the tape.  Just think of the next week as a testament to my anal retentive, neurotic, OCD nature.  As opposed to every other week. . .

“West End Girls”

<awesome Pet Shop Boys jam>

Sometimes ya better off dead, there’s a gun in ya hand and it’s pointing atcha head
Ya think ya mad
Too unstable
Kicking in chairs and knocking down tables in a restaurant
In a West End town
Call the police, there’s a madman around
Running down
Underground to a dive bar
In a West End town
In a West End town, a dead-end world
The East End boys and West End girls

In a West End town, a dead-end world
The East End boys and West End girls

West End girls

Too many shadows, whispering voices, faces on posters, too many choices
If, when, why, what
How much have you got

Have ya got it, do ya get it, if so, how often, which do ya choose, a hard or soft option
(How much do you neeeeeeed)
In a West End town, a dead-end world
The East End boys and West End girls

In a West End town, a dead-end world
The East End boys and West End girls

West End girls

West End girls

<awesome Pet Shop Boys jam>

(How much do you neeeeeeed)
In a West End town, a dead-end world
The East End boys and West End girls

Ooo, West End town, a dead-end world
East End boys, West End girls

West End girls

You got a heart’a glass or a heart’a stone
Just you wait ’til I getchoo home
Got no future, we’ve got no past
Here today
Built ta last in every city in every nation from Lake Geneva to the Finland station
(How far have you beeeen)
In a West End town, a dead-end world
The East End boys and West End girls

West End town, a dead-end world
East End boys, West End girls

West End girls

West End girls

West End girls

(How far have you beeeen)
Girls

East End boys

And West End girls

West End girls
(How far have you beeeen)

The West End girls

  2. […] Pet Shop Boys, after all these years, and the first song I record by you is the last song I recorded by you as a kid.  Not that I’m complaining.  I was excited when I recorded it back in the day, and […]
