Soft Cell & Pet Shop Boys - Purple Zone

This one hurts. These two acts have been responsible for some of my favourite musical moments from the last forty years. But, as much as I want to love it, this song leaves me cold. The whole thing is as flat as a pancake. It's safe to a fault, and they're bands that have never been shy about embracing the Drama before. Think back to 'Jacky' or 'Left To My Own Devices'. It truly pains me to say this, but 'Purple Zone' is nothing more than a football chant with a wobbly bit in the chorus that makes me queasy.

Homework #1: Marc Almond - Jacky /

Homework #2: Pet Shop Boys - Left To My Own Devices /

Homework #3: Paul Weller - Cosmic Fringes (PSB Remix) /
