Disco Friday: Pet Shop Boys "Domino Dancing"



An object lesson in barely-veiled gay subtext, 80's style. It would be another decade before the Pet Shop Boys would openly discuss their sexuality, but keen eyes could pick out the homoerotic themes and images in "It's A Sin" and "What Have I Done To Deserve This." "Domino Dancing," however, foregrounds male sexuality with shirtless boys, exotic locales, Neil Tennant pining away, and a boy-on-boy wrestle in the ocean surf, just past the six-minute mark. Mmmm mmmm good.

OMG how freaky - we both blogged about 'Domino Dancing' within a day of each other. Freaky deaky indeed but Gabriel, you have impeccable taste my dear.
