PLAY: Pet Shop Boys – Domino Dancing (Club Mix)

I think the interesting aspect of some of the Pet Shop Boys music is that it’s a real melting pot of sounds. You’ve got a diverse array of tones just intermingling, and surprisingly it all plays out appealing to the ears.

Then we’ve got this Latin thing going on with these cool dancy piano bars, and  Spanish guitar lines. The lyrical melody is quite strong in it’s structure, delicately delivered in both verse and chorus, and that’s what makes it pop!

Presented here is the “Club Mix” which is a little bit busy at times verses the single edit, but I’m sure you’ll all enjoy as I do.

I think there was a small period in 1988 in which some great pop artists were fixed in Latin rhythms and this is a clear example. Great song and great mix.

At first I thought it was the Dancing Club Mix. :-) The title for me differs from the song. Perhaps the film clip would help. Slightly different the usual PSB I grew up with.
