“Love is a Bourgeois Construct" by Pet Shop Boys
As we age our milestones become farther apart and more rarely achieved. By the time our world turns to a bowl of applesauce and we can no longer remember if we bought our favorite pair of jeans last winter or the winter before, the indistinct flow of life has become so natural that the thought is shrugged off with a simple “nevermind.” But still, we question thirty year old bands as to whether or not they’ve yet released their best album. Do they continue to strive? And where is their end point? Feel free to pose those questions to Pet Shop Boys, but it’s clear they’ve never minded such concerns. “Love Is a Bourgeois Construct” is the sound of a band that has completely forgotten its age. It’s not pained in its grasp at youthfulness, nor is it a dour coating of Werther’s Original. It’s simply ageless, but it wouldn’t sound half as good without the mastery that three decades of learning your instruments provides.
Pet Shop Boys are basically beyond reproach at this point, right? They’ve been doing this so long, and so well, that you could almost take them for granted - which would be a mistake, as the bombastic, driving “Love is a Bourgeois Concept” proves. That one of 2013’s best electronic tracks comes from thirty year vets of the scene is a testament to the undiminished instincts of Tennant and Lowe, and proof that even in a genre that’s undergone seismic upheavals, talent trumps trends.
Probably my favorite track of 2013! Pet Shop Boys surprised me with this and this great album. Glad you showed me Josh!

I’m obsessed with song right now! Awesome 70s song, seems to have a few different genre influences. I will LURVE it forever now.

Not being depressing or anything, but the worst feeling about living alone is when the people visit and then the time to leave comes.Oh the memories of last year are coming being revisited…
She is one of my first loves.
One who broke my heart,
It’s stupid I know, I was young.
But I still love her.
There is only one perfection.
The show must go on, one way or another…

It does really make you focus on driving!
