Hey! Lookit what I found: the second but not much seen video of the Pet Shop Boys' "Opportunities." This is the better version as opposed to the other video where vocalist Neil Tennant is shown dressed in either Amish or Jewish garb singing with his body halfway through the floor in front of a car with its headlights on. This of course was one of their first hit singles back in 1985 or '86. It may mean squat to non-new wavers out there but this definitely brings back a lot of memories from those times of hair spray, loud flashy clothes, and more genial music with gibberish poetry for lyrics.
