On the drive back Danny played me some of a new Pet Shop Boys album in which they sing about social media (rhymed with Wikipedia, and greedier). They were so bad that we started making up new lyrics like “Get off my lawn” and “I used to be in a disco, now I’m on the city council”, “It’s so irritating when people don’t use their turn signals on these horseless carriages” and “Just let me sing another didactic bad internet song”.
“I was hoping for something more dreamy and poetic,” I complained.
Danny explained that Britain is too upset for that right now. Makes sense I guess.
We then played “It’s a Sin” to get back into the proper Pet Shop Boys loving frame of mind.
