"I was a lonely boy, no strength, no joy
In a world of my own at the back of the garden "
(Pet Shop Boys- Neil Tennant / Chris Lowe, "Left to my own devices")
At that time growing up some strange people were around me and indeed I had no friends. Music of PSB was my joy. The album "Introspective" was "my friend", and then I got the "Actually" and "Please". All the songs I liked and listened, I was thinking about it, read PSB interviews.
