Daily Boom 80's Throwback: Pet Shop Boys - 'Love Comes Quickly'

 
You can live your life lonely
heavy as stone
Live your life learning
and working alone
Say this is all you want
but I don't believe that it's true
'cause when you least expect it
waiting round the corner for you

Love comes quickly
whatever you do
you can't stop falling
Love comes quickly
whatever you do
you can't stop falling
 
1986 was the year when The Pet Shop Boys broke through in the states. "West End Girls" shot to the top of the charts and synth music was at the height of its' popularity. The Pet Shop Boys followed up that song with a track called "Love Comes Quickly" that didn't do quite as well on the charts. It still remains one of the band's favorite songs as well as one of mine. "Love Comes Quickly" is about the lack of control you have when falling in love. Suddenly it hits you that the feelings are already there.
 
Check out this live performance of the song from Wembley in 1989!
