Songs that remind me of my childhood Number 31 - Heart (Pet Shop Boys)


The Pet Shop Boys were a band I was never particularly in to back in their heyday, which is surprising when you consider the similarities between them and my favourite synth group Erasure.  Sure, I loved West End Girls, It's a Sin, Always On My Mind and pretty much everything else on their "Please" and "Actually" albums, but I never paid much attention to what they produced after that until only a few years ago.  Boy, was I missing out.

Anyway.....

Having said that, I always had a fondness for Heart.  Released in 1988, it entered the charts in March at number 30 before rightfully reaching the number one spot the following month where it stayed for a few weeks.  I didn't realise until only recently that Sir Ian McKellen played the vampire in the accompanying video. 

Ahhhhhh...  I was just 11 years old at the time.  Life was so much easier (and less stressful) back then.
