Vocal Video by Pet Shop Boys

Dear Poptastic Readers,

What a fun, busy week it has been here. We started off with an interview with Lisa Cork-Twiss, formerly of Real McCoy and yesterday we celebrated our two-year anniversary. Good times!

Well, today I'm just going to tell you about the new video for the latest Pet Shop Boys single called "Vocal." You might remember that I wrote about it earlier this month. And I'm very happy to say that the song has indeed grown on me, and I quite like the melody.

Here's what the Pet Shop Boys say about the video on their website ...

This short film has been produced and directed by the filmmaker and photographer, Joost Vandeburg. He has created it using authentic amateur film footage shot at various raves in the late 80s, along with some footage from the Ha├žienda in Manchester. The video (and the song) was inspired by the way British youth at this time found its own freedom with a new culture epitomised by dance music and raves: "It's in the music/It's in the song/And the feeling of the warmth around us all is so strong."

Thank goodness the video is a radio edit as it clocks in 3:32. Hopefully the edited version will be on iTunes soon!

Cheers then,
