JUST ANOTHER MOODIE MONDAY
There’s something about todays track that just seems to set me up for the day when I hear it and todays no exception…… I hope it does the same to you.
The song is Left To My Own Devices by the fabulous Pet Shop Boys.
The lyric starts with ” I get out of bed at half past 10, phone up a friend who’s a party animal……..”
Neil Tennant from the PSB’s was asked the meaning of the lyrics and his response was the following:
“This person goes through life always doing what he wanted to do. I liked the idea of writing a really up pop song about being left alone. This song is a day in the life of someone, so it starts off with getting out of bed and being on the phone and drinking tea and all the rest of it, and it ends up with coming home. By this time I was making the words very exaggerated and camp, though writing a book and going on stage were both things I had wanted to do when I was young.”
