Song Of The Day: Pet Shop Boys, “The Forgotten Child”

Thirty-five years on, British duo Pet Shop Boys are still releasing excellent and quite literate and topical pop songs. Their latest release, Agenda, is a four-song EP that contains three humorous songs about the state of the world, but it closes with one of their most beautiful songs of late. It’s a song that Neil Tennant describes as being about both the refugee crisis and the loss of one’s own inner child. A gentle tropical beat belies the sad and thought-provoking lyrics; it could have easily fit on their magnum opus, Behaviour.
