Pet Shop Boys Brits Medley is a digital-only single that was performed at the 2009 Brit Awards and was performed by the Pet Shop Boys, with guest vocals from Katy Perry and Brandon Flowers. It was later released as a single but with altered lyrics for What Have I Done To Deserve This? with Perry being replaced with the late singer and original singer, Dusty Springfield and Flowers being replaced by Tennant for It's A Sin which he duoed with Flowers on and the original lyrics for West End Girls, which Flowers and Perry provided the "How far have you been?" lyrics.
Songs used[edit | edit source]
The medley opens with the Pet Shop Boys song intro and first verses, it then transitions to their 2009 single from their Pet Shop Boys album album, Love etc. and then utilizes the verse from their 1990 single, Left To My Own Devices, "I was faced with a choice at a difficult age
Would I write a book? Or should I take to the stage? But in the back of my head I heard distant feet Che Guevara and Debussy to a disco beat."
It then transitions into their 1987 single, Always On My Mind before it transitions into their 1993 single, Go West and then into the chorus for their duo single with Dusty Springfield, What Have I Done To Deserve This?. It uses the lyrics, " bought you drinks, I brought you flowers I read you books and talked for hours Every day, so many drinks Such pretty flowers, so tell me What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this? What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this? What have I, what have I, what have I
Since you went away I've been hanging around I've been wondering why I'm feeling down You went away, it should make me feel better But I don't know, oh How I'm gonna get through (what have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?) How I'm gonna get through (what have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?)" Before going into a mix between Domino Dancing and Hit and Miss. It has two verses from their 1990 single, Being Boring before going into the intro to their 1984 single, Opportunities (Lets Make Lots Of Money) and then into It's A Sin. It then transitions into their single from their Pet Shop Boys album album, All Over The World before ending with West End Girls.
