“If you’ve got the inclination, I’ve got the crime…”

So, I usually like to chill out here at Counterforce with a song on Sundays, just to, if nothing else, kind of relax at the end of the long, crazy weekend. And today is no different, so…

A bit of a flashback, sure, but that’s one of my favorite songs and I’m sure it’s one of yours too: The Pet Shop Boy’s “Opportunities (Let’s Make Lots Of Money).” An oldie, but a goodie, I say. Sure, it’s a song inspired by Midnight Cowboy and an mocking ode to Thatcherism and an era of conscious consumption, but it’s also incredibly fucking catchy too. Anyway, I was joking around with a friend the other night and we were trying to think up songs that would make good anthems for “internet people.” I suggested the Cardigan’s “In The Round” as the perfect song for the bloggers of the world (unite!), and she suggested this Pet Shop Boys classic for all the sad young internet moguls out there. I think she won.
