This Week's PSB Survey
As documented in Pet Shop Boys: A Life in Pop, at one self-described "low point" in their career (apparently sometime during the 1999s), Neil had asked Chris whether they ought to call it quits. Chris didn't reply, so Neil simply changed the subject. And that was that. So – thank goodness – the Pet Shop Boys continued making music together. But now let's imagine a parallel universe in which Chris had replied that, yes, they should indeed call it quits. Which of the following do you believe would have been at that point (starting in the 1990s), in this unfortunate alternate reality, the most likely post-PSB scenarios for Neil and Chris? (Please make one choice for Neil and one for Chris.) [652 votes total]
