I never dreamt that I would get to be the creature that I always meant to be But I thought, in spite of dreams, you'd be sitting somewhere here with me
Regretfully not played last night:
#ABCsOfMe B: "Being Boring" opens my favorite album "Behavior" in a blur of synthetic wind and wah guitars providing an appropriate melancholy backdrop for a song that laments lost friends.
A wonderfully sybarite film for a sumptuous and engaging POP! song.
The "perfect pop song" according to the Guardian- http://www.theguardian.com/music/musicblog/2010/aug/05/pet-shop-boys-being-boring
If that doesn't convince you, there's also this 150-page site devoted to the song - http://www.10yearsofbeingboring.com
For me, they are simply words to live by -
"We were never feeling bored, because we were never being boring."
