Pet Shop Boys - "Being Boring"

Today's song o' the day is best described as "wistful." In fact, it is the single most wistful song in my CD collection. Even the allmusic site uses that word, meaning "melancholy recollection," to describe "Being Boring," the lead-off track on the Behavior CD from The Pet Shop Boys.

Pet Shop Boy Neil Tennant wrote this song about a childhood friend who died of AIDS, but there's a more universal element to the song. This song plays in my head whenever I feel a permanent sort of good-bye being said. Because it's, yes, wistful. And good pop music, too.
