The Pet Shop Boys have been going since 1981 with over 50 million records sold worldwide. The most successful duo in UK music history, Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe’s synth-pop classics like West End Girls and It’s a Sin have hit No 1. And yet a song of theirs that wasn’t even a single has been selected for King Charles III’s official Coronation Celebration Playlist on Spotify.
The playlist of 27 songs has been hand-selected on behalf of His Majesty by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport and includes plenty of classic acts like Queen, The Beatles and David Bowie among the newer ones. And included among them as the 16th track on the Spotify playlist is All over the World – 2018 Remaster by the Pet Shop Boys.
Not to be confused with Electric Light Orchestra’s 1980 track All Over the World, All over the World is a track on the synth-pop duo’s 2009 album Yes. Incredibly the song that was originally intended as the second single on the record isn’t even in the top 10 of their most popular songs on Spotify. However, it was the album’s principal radio promo and gained a music video which you can watch above.
