The Sodom And Gomorrah Show – Pet Shop Boys 2

Even though two sin cities Sodom and Gomorrah in Bible is not an innovative topic which has been sung by Hong Kong group “Tat Ming Pairs”ten years ago, 《The Sodom And Gomorrah Show》 inside Pet Shop Boys new album《Fundamental》 is still extremely  thrilling. The catchy melody recalls me the lively early 90s album, 《Very》. Rumors claim that 《The Sodom And Gomorrah Show》 is the highest priority for first single. Unfortunately, this outright gay song destines to be sacrificed due to the risk of being banned by the broadcasts.  

The Sodom And Gomorrah Show | Pet Shop Boys

(Sun, Sex, Sing
Divine Intervention
Death and Destruction
Ladies and Gentlemen
Welcome
to the Sodom and Gomorrah Show)

I lived a quiet life
a stranger to champagne
I never dared to venture out
to ?

I heard about the way of life
took it with a pinch of salt
the freedom and the time to play
A life so easy
it intrigued me
when you called to say

Are you gonna go
to the Sodom and Gomorrah Show
It’s got everything you need for your
complete entertainment
and instruction
Sun, sex, sin divine intervention
death and destruction
the Sodom and Gomorrah Show is
a once in a lifetime production

I think it’s true to say
my life was changed that night
in the liberated atmosphere
all around me
someone found me
whispered in my ear

Are you gonna go
to the Sodom and Gomorrah Show
It’s got everything you need for your
complete entertainment
and instruction
Sun, sex, sin divine intervention
death and destruction
the Sodom and Gomorrah show is
a once in a lifetime production

Then we went on after hours
there was a place down below
it was then I realized
the meaning of the show

You’ve got to love to learn to live
where angels fear to tread
I did it and I don’t regret the day
even now I think of how you
turned to me to say

(Sun, Sex, Sin, Death and Destruction) Sodom and Gomorrah

Are you gonna go
to the Sodom and Gomorrah show
It’s got everything you need for your
complete entertainment
and instruction
Sun, sex, sin divine intervention
death and destruction
the Sodom and Gomorrah Show is
a once in a lifetime production

    The line you are missing in the first verse goes:
    “I never dared to venture out
    to cities of the plane”
    It referes to the Bible story about Sodom and Gomorrah where a similar phrase is used.

    I don’t think it necesseraly is that gay, se the explanation at:
    http://www.geowayne.com/master.html?http://www.geowayne.com/psbfundamental.htm

    It is more a general discription of life as life also includes sun, sex, sin, divine intervention, death and destruction. So I think it’s about daring to really live your life while you can, as it is a “once in a lifetime production”. But of course the gay interpretation is also there, and the multible meanings are what makes it beautiful…
