Intro des DISCO-2-Nonstop-Remix-Albums, die [Single Version] wurde anlässlich der VERY-Neuausgabe nachgereicht. Eher mässig für PSB-Verhältnisse, aber halt doch mit einer gewissen Qualität.

Good song.
****
Flotter Beat, doch die Melodie ist mittelmässig
**
aus der tv serie. im juni '94 #6 in GB. die mitarbeit der pet shop boys daran ist unüberhörbar!
****
Wer die Serie kennt, wird den Sarkasmus und selbst die Bösartigkeit der Hauptdarstellerinnen lieben. In GB ein Hit, auf dem Kontinent ging der Titel eher unter, trotz PSB-Produktion. Ich habe mir damals die MCD besorgt, weil ich die Serie kannte und liebte. Der Song ist nur eine Aneinanderreihung von Sprüchen und Textfetzen unterlegt mit einem mäßigen PSB-Sound. 4+, aber nicht mehr.
*****
Givenchy, Dior, Chanel, Lacroix Darling!
******
PSB goes Eurodance in Reinkultur. Ich liebe diesen Track!
*****
toller Dancesong! (eine Charity-CD produziert von den PSB für die Wohltätigkeitsorganisation "Comic Relief" nach der gleichnamigen erfolgreichen BBC-Serie)
****
Released as a charity single in the early 90's. This song was also used as the theme song to the British television show 'Absolutely Fabulous'.
******
Techno, techno, bloody techno!
****
nichts weltbewegendes
**
Schwacher Eurodance. 1994 uk Peak: 6 und au Peak: 2
**
Never liked this.
*****
Dit is een track geproduceerd door The Pet Shop Boys en Neil Tennant zingt hier op dit nummer ook mee. De dames zijn van de gelijknamige comedyserie. Dit was de 1e cd-single die ik ooit kocht. Dat deed ik niet voor die dames (die zitten maar wat doorheen te praten afgewisseld met samples uit de serie die ik verder ook niet ken!), maar voor PSB. De muziek klinkt zo lekker. Die zit zo goed in elkaar. Bovendien is de melodie van deze synthi-plaat zo aantrekkelijk.
De single bleef in de zomer van 1994 helaas in de toenmalige Mega Tip 30 steken..........(posities waren: 21-14-8-5)

▒ Ik ben best een liefhebber van de "PSB", maar deze plaat uit 1994 vind ik na een minuut best irritant en vervelend worden !!! Dat gelul er tussen door hoeft voor mij niet !!! De serie heb ik wel altijd ontzettend leuk en komisch gevonden !!! Krap 2 sterren ☺!!!
******
Even though I hadn't seen an episode of the show I knew every word in this song, essentially a remix sampling quotes from Patsy and Edina - definitely not "Dull soulless dance music"
*****
A great example of how to sample soundbites for a song. It's the bloody Pet Shop Boys and it's techno, bloody techno but it is bloody brilliant. I find myself quoting it at least once a week and I was never really a fan of the series.
**
The show's not bad but this is.
*****
Und dann war's erst noch für einen guten Zweck!
****
anständiges Eurodance-Teil von 1994 – 3.75…
******
Absolutely faboulous.
****
EDDY: What you two don't seem to realize is that inside of me, inside of me, there is a thin person just screaming to get out.
MOTHER: Just the one, dear?
****
Typischer PSB-Sound. Sie konnten es aber besser.
***
Ha, references.
****
it's fabulous darling!)
****
Super cool track.
*****
Ich mag den Song, gut!
****
Gott sei dank nicht unter PET SHOP BOYS veröffentlicht

dieser Song ist zu Gunsten einer Wohltätigkeitssache entstanden und dabei natürlich die zwei Damen von ABSOLUTELY FABOLOUS die hier hierzulande leider nur Insider kennen.

Deutlich unter dem Niveau von den PET SHOP BOYS doch sehr amüsant

ist eine schamlose Parodie oder Klau von MR VAIN, was Tennant auch zugegeben hat

der Beginn ist musikalisch fast identisch

UK#6

Aardige single die in NL echter niets deed
******
Darling, its Fabulous!
****

Die Serie kenne ich nicht, aber den Song schon.
***
Habe ich nie gemocht, das Gelabere hat mich auch schon bei der "Help" Version von Bananarama genervt!

Erreichte im Juni 1994 immerhin #18 der irischen Charts!
