REASONS TO LISTEN TO PET SHOP BOYS

  1. Album titles can be used to confuse others
    Most album titles can be used in other ways: "I'm listening to Pet Shop Boys, Actually. Yes, Please. Very Introspective."
  2. You can pretend you're studying political history
    Among other songs "Up Against It", "London", and "Bolshy" make references to Russian history. Also "I'm With Stupid", "Integral", "I Get Along", "Legacy", and "Invisible" are all in some way about Tony Blair.
  3. "Love is a Bourgeois Construct" is an incredible song title
    And it's the only pop song to mention British politician Tony Benn.
  4. They wrote a musical biography about Alan Turing
    Extra cool history points.
  5. At least it'll take a while
    There's 11 albums, 2 b-side compilations, and 3 soundtracks.
