Leaving - The new single by the Pet Shop Boys


Leaving is the gorgeous new single by the Pet Shop Boys and is the second single release from their Elysium album.

Fellow pop blogger Enda Guinan is one of Neil and Chris's biggest fans and he has lots of Pet Shop Boys articles on his website here. Neil was interviewed on Irish radio by John Murray back in August and that very entertaining interview is on Enda's website here.

Here's Leaving which is their 55th single! Many years of quality pop.

I love the note under her Youtube video for Boy that says 'all paper in this video was recycled'.



Three songs from Karima Francis's album The Remedy


Karima Francis released her second studio album The Remedy in August of this year. She is currently touring with Newton Faulkner. Full details of those upcoming concerts on her website here.

Here are three songs from The Remedy. The first is Glory Days which is my favourite song by her.



The second song is Wherever I Go.



and the third song is Stay. This is a live performance with Julia Kent on cello and was filmed for the Writer's Bench TV which is a live performance concept which brings a mixture of song, music, spoken word, film and dance together. Their Youtube page is here.
