All this time around the house has musicians just as restless as we are. One of the positives of this whole mess has been all the great music and free concerts artists have been putting up on social media to keep fans entertained as we wait for concerts to make a comeback.

Neil Tennant is back behind the mic for this 2020 reimagining of the Pet Shop Boys’ classic Q105 ’80s hit “West End Girls.” It’s so smooth! I don’t know if I like it better than the original, but it’s definitely got a fresh laid back vibe that gives the song new life 35 years later.

When I saw they called it a “Lockdown Version,” I feared they were going to mess with the lyrics or go way off a new direction with the song. They don’t. I think you’ll like it! Let me know what you think @Q105Geno and I’ll include some of your tweets below.
