#17 in my favourite songs of 2012

#17 in my favourite songs of 2012 is "Winner" by the Pet Shop Boys.



"Winner" was the first single from their eleventh studio album called "Elysium." The song was released just in time for the Summer Olympics. And the song definitely had Olympic fever. The song is very uplifting and I think it is wonderful. And it is my favorite song off their new album, followed closely by the electro-chill track "Invisible."

The video for the song was quite bold. It features the London Rollergirls and their acceptance of their new teammate who happens to be transgendered. The first time I saw the video, I'm pretty sure that I cried. It is how you want life to be. No, the Pet Shop Boys aren't in the video.




Fun fact: The Pet Shop Boys last appeared on my countdown in 2010 at #18 with the song "Together." 

The Pet Shop Boys music is available on iTunes.

See #18 on the countdown.
