Pet Shop Boys – ‘Winner’

Pet Shop Boys - 'Winner'

An uplifting gem for the Olympics by the dance duo

It’s easy to hate on the Olympics. The traffic. The tracksuits that look like sperm costumes. TV being rubbish. To counteract all this, the Pet Shop Boys have released one of the most uplifting songs in the history of the Pet Shop Boys. “You’re a winner! I’m a winner!” they sing on ‘Winner’. Even if you’re a goth with a dead cat as a pet you’ll start slow-waving your arms and crying at just how inspired you are by it all.
