Opinion:I've got a friend who unfortunately is suffering with deep depression and anorexia. Some days ago it was her birthday, and as a birthday card I wrote her the BEING BORING lyrics, just to tell her that she could "always rely on a friend" (that is me)and that life is worth to be fully lived. She was very impressed by that, and I hope she will reflect on that words the way I did the first time I heard them from Neil's voice...
Ciao da Elena.

Opinion:I was very happy to find out that I'm not the only one who loves this record. It manages to pull off that perfect balance of being happy and sad at exactly the same time. Genius.

When I was 15 or 16 I had that huge b&w poster of the cast and the Boys on my wall. It always had such a sexy atmosphere to it. In a way I think I was always trying to somehow recreate the video when we had these great big hedonistic dance parties at my house. I wish I'd kept that poster now, but the song is enough. My own memories of those times mix in with Neil's sentiments so seamlessly now, it all seems to be part of the same life.

This really is a quite extraordinary site that, against the odds, never becomes boring. A heartfelt, purposeful and succinct declaration of love for a song that somehow gets even better the more you know about it. Thanks for taking the time to share your enthusiasm, and I'm sure that Mark Farrow in particular would be proud of your design tribute.

Opinion:Dear Marcin,

There are very few percent of the web sites on the Net who are made with true passion. And it's hardly any of them who both contain valuable content and a functional good-looking interface. Your site 10yearsofbeingboring.com is a rare exception. It's extraordinary!

Keep up the good work!

Opinion:I was 16 years old when I was in Dortmund 1991 for watching 'performance'. I have always loved this kind of calm but tragic melancholy, discribing different critical situations in MY life, since I was a kid (1985). Neil and Chris have moved straight and permanently into my heart as I was standing in front of them. Certainly, the time round 1991 have been the most important and exciting years in my life. Tragic and funny, melancholy and relaxed at the same time.

Now, after 10 years, I am very surprised and even glad, that there are poeple who share nearly the same feeling of beauty, lyrically and musically. Actually, it is hard to believe -listening to so much rubbish today-.

It is difficult giving all these emotions words, but I hope that there will be the opportunity to read this fabulous site another 10 years later.
Thank you, Marcin for getting reminded on this brilliant song and the period of getting adult.

I do like your typographic sensibility and, of course psb.

oliver.

Opinion:It became my favourite PSB song as I listened to it for the very first time.
And two years ago it immediately turned out to have a new,personal feeling for me:since the loss of a very very close relative of mine in a tragic event in 1998,I just burst into tears most of the times when the song reaches its third verse.The concept of "loss" truly matches what happened to me 2 years ago.
But this won't ever stop me to listen to the record,'cos it's never boring.

Opinion:Being Boring is one of these rare songs which make you depressive but also optimistic at the same time. Could be a lyric of mine-great !

Opinion:If you can capture a time and place, only for a moment, in any medium....you have a achieved an elusive feat. The Pet Shop Boys did for 5 Minutes with Being Boring. You cannot compare this song to anything, Perfection has no equal.

Opinion:I thought King's Cross was the best PSB song until I heard Being Boring. Now King's Cross is their 2nd best song. I can listen to Being Boring over and over again without getting bored or tired and I always feel better after hearing it. A good day at work includes listening to the LP version, Atlanta, and Creamfields versions one right after the other. A GREAT Saturday at work includes listening to all 3 (w/o the headphones) turned up REAL loud in the design room.

Opinion:Superb site and congratulations for everything. The best thing about Being Boring, I think, is that everyone does remember very well when it was heard for the first time - like a magical moment of souvenir...
My only regret comes from the extended and remixed versions that I never found at the level of the original.

Opinion:I have been reading this site for the last hour, never boring. I also maintain a strange fascination for this song. It's moving, provocative and every time I hear it, I am reminded of exactly how cool it is. Fantastic video and design also. This is my favourtite PSB song, although Rent comes very close. Thanks for the site... G'day from Australia (Truly international appeal.)

Opinion:Being Boring ultimately belongs to the best 5 Pet Shop Boys songs ever. The bit "...I always thought, in spite of dreams, you'd be sitting somewhere here with me..." always causes goosebumps all over my body.

Opinion:This song is what generated new song. The song is very simplistic and wonderful throughout. Best opener for an album and the song gets better after every listen. It's very underrated. But it will one day appear to be one of the most beautiful PSB songs.

Opinion:A great song that only gets better with time. Dare I suggest that it is slightly overrated though?? However, it is proof that PSB create timeless music that touches the hearts of thousands around the world.
