Winner, whilst for my money the weakest lead single for a Pet Shop Boys album we've had yet, is nowhere near as bad as some of the fan-base would have you believe. (It's also worth pointing out that, generally, it's got a good critical reception). Yes it's Olympic stylings could be said to show a certain amount of bare-naked opportunism and cynicism that you wouldn't expect from Neil and Chris but it's not as if it's totally unheard of. Their camp cover of U2's Where The Streets Have No Name, for instance, was released to chase a "hit" after Being Boring's disappointing chart position - and perhaps the realisation that even a fantastic remix of How Can You Expect To Be Taken Seriously wasn't going to take that song into the upper echelon of the pop charts.
Winner is still the best of the Olympic "cash-in" tracks I've heard and is a damn site better than the official Muse song. It's also backed by three rather cracking "b" sides, which with two double CD sets in the bag have always been a PSB strong point.
A Certain "Je Ne Sais Quoi" is perhaps this generation's Shameless, with it's pumping backing track and witty lyrics. Tennant's "mmmm" that breaks up the title in the chorus is perfectly timed and is simply the sort of thing most pop acts wouldn't come up with.
A Walk Through The Woods is a more disconcerting effort, putting as it does a Rudyard Kipling poem to music. It's not an immediate, ahem, winner but repeated listens do prove it to be more than an atmospheric curiosity and again it's simply the kind of thing you don't get with other pop acts.
I Started A Joke rounds things off, being a tribute to the recently departed Robin Gibb. It's lush and lovely and, like many a PSB cover version, sounds as if it could be one of their originals.
Overall this is a really rather good package, even if Winner, as nice as it is, could never be said to be a "classic" PSB single.

The Boys continue to churn out some clever, easy to sing along to and poignant songs and although people say "Winner" is the "weakest track on the album", I think it's actually very triumphant a very appropriate as a theme for the 2012 London Olympics, regardless of whether PSB wrote the song as a tribute to artists who compete at The Eurovision Song Contest or not.

If you're thinking of buying this, then I also URGE you to consider "Elysium" - this not only has original 'b-side' tracks (a PSB trademark) but this single comes from a very different sounding, lush, mellow and easy going album. Produced by the guy who's done Kanye West albums in California, it was wholly recorded and produced there as well, by Andrew Dawson.

Service was prompt and good value for money - at the time, it was cheaper on here than on PSB's own web site, sadly.

Glad to see the Boys back and I'm already looking forward to their 2013 concerts and new album, "ELECTRIC"!!

By now most have heard "Winner", but the real gems here are the three fantastic other tracks. The best is A Certain "Je Ne Sais Quoi", a witty track full of bubbling synth hooks. I Started a Joke is a stately Robin Gibb tribute with one of Neil's best ever vocals and some beautiful mournful horn riffs. The Way Through the Woods is based on a Rudyard Kipling poem and is an inventive song with interesting melodies and naturalistic sound effect evocative of a woodland setting. A fantastic group of songs, and a steal for the price.

Leave it to the Pet Shop Boys. Any other U.K. act who released a single called Winner within a week of the Olympic Games would be expected to have shots of people breaking the tape and standing on the podium getting their gold medal. Not Neil and Chris.

They've assembled a rather touching video of the London Rollergirls, a Roller Derby team, and their new rookie, Dirty Diana, who happens to be transgender...-Music News.

The single contains four tracks and , as always, is excellent value for money;

Winner
A Certain "Je ne Sais Quoi"
The Way Through the Woods (Long Version)
I Started a Joke

Joke is a cover of the Bee Gees song and is a salute to the late Robin Gibb.

This song was used for the Olympics in Britain last year but was not played enough in my opinion. It has a wonderful uplifting message and rising anthemic melody The video, if you get the chance to see it, is STUNNING!

It seems that the Pet Shop Boys got caught up in Olympic hysteria this year as evidenced by this song. I was surprised that it was just worthy of a Bronze medal.

Like most PSB cd singles this offers great value for money with 4 strong tracks.

As is often the case with the PSB's I prefer the other 3 tracks to the actual single; however it's growing on me!

This CD is on heavy rotation at present!
