Song of the Day, May 17: Two Divided By Zero by Pet Shop Boys

PetShopTwoDiv0Today’s song opens the first disc by champions of synth-dance music. Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe formed Pet Shop Boys in London, initially working with New York producer Bobby O. When that relationship ended, they recorded their stellar debut, please. The opening track, written by Tennant with Bobby O., is a perfect introduction to the duo and a nice transition from their early work to full ownership of their sound.

Two Divided By Zero is a chilling track mixing cloak-and-dagger intrigue with suburban ennui. A strange blend, it works in these masterful hands, and sets the stage for the Boys’ long career of clever lyrics and compelling music.

Enjoy this great track today.
