IS THIS THE MOST CATCHY CHORUS EVER WRITTEN?
Yes, I know it was originally released by The Village People in 1979, but it wasn't until Pet Shop Boys did their take on it in 1993 that it became a real institution.
The supporters of thousands of football clubs have adopted it in some shape or form - whether it be in homage to the team, or an individual player or perhaps in a derogatory manner either at their own side or the oppostion. I understand that it is also very popular in other team sports.
I's argue that outside of various national anthems and Happy Birthday (and I dont mean the Altered Images song.....), a variation on Go West must be about the most perfomed tune in the world these days.
Don't know about the rest of you, but I think the PSB version is about as perfect a production you can get on any recording:-
mp3 : Pet Shop Boys - Go West
Great video as well:-
Here's the additional tracks on the CD single:-
mp3 : Pet Shop Boys - Shameless
mp3 : Pet Shop Boys - Go West (Mings Gone West : First and Second Movement)
Happy Listening...and make the most of it. Something a wee bit less cheery is coming your way tomorrow.
