If Burke Were a Pop Star ...


... he'd write a lyric like this:

Well I bought a ticket to the revolution
And I cheered when the statues fell
Everyone came
To destroy what was rotten
But they killed off the good as well
Sometimes the solution
Is worse than the problem
Let's stay together.

The new album from pop geniuses Tennant and Lowe is now available. It's called Fundamental. The remix companion album is called Fundamentalism. The Pet Shop Boys are against it. As all conservatives should be. (If you want a taste, YouTube has a couple of great recent PSB videos for two recent songs, "Miracles" and "Flamboyant." "Miracles" is sublime.)
