One Hundred Lyrics and a Poem [9780571348909]

Everything I've ever done

Everything I ever do

Every place I've ever been

Everywhere I'm going to

Over a career that spans four decades and thirteen studio albums with Pet Shop Boys, Neil Tennant has consistently proved himself to be one of the most elegant and stylish of contemporary lyricists. Arranged alphabetically, One Hundred Lyrics and a Poem presents an overview of his considerable achievement as a chronicler of modern life: the romance, the break-ups, the aspirations, the changing attitudes, the history, the politics, the pain.

The landscape of Tennant's lyrics is recognisably British in character - restrained and preoccupied with the mundane, occasionally satirical, yet also yearning for escape and theatrical release. Often surprisingly revealing, this volume is contextualised by a personal commentary on each lyric and an introduction by the author which gives a fascinating insight into the process and genesis of writing.

Flamboyant, understated, celebratory and elegiac, Neil Tennant's lyrics are a document of our times.
AUTHOR: Neil Tennant is one half of the electronic pop music duo, the Pet Shop Boys, who have had four number one singles, released thirteen albums, written a musical and a ballet and toured the world several times. In the early 80s Neil was assistant editor of Smash Hits magazine.
