Domino Dancing by Pet Shop Boys

I don't know why, I don't know how
I thought I loved you, but I'm not sure now
I've seen you look at strangers too many times
A love-you-once is of a, a different kind

Remember when we felt the sun
A love like paradise, how hot it burned
A threat of distant thunder, the sky was red
And when you walked, you always - turned every head

(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day) Domino dancing
(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day, domino dancing)

I thought that when we fought I was to blame
But now I know you play a different game
I've watched you dance with danger, still wanting more
Add another number to the score

(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day) Domino dancing
(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day, domino dancing)

When you look around you wonder
Do you play to win?
Or are you just a bad loser?

(All day, all day)
(All day, all day)

I don't know why, I don't know how
I thought I loved you but I'm not sure now
I hear the thunder crashing, the sky is dark
And now a storm is breaking within my heart

(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day) Domino dancing
(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day, domino dancing)

(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day) Domino dancing
(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day, domino dancing)

(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day) Domino dancing
(All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
(All day, all day)

HOLY 80S BATMAN!!!

I remember this song & liked it because it was catchier than the moodier 'West End Girls' which i've never liked.

I also remember Pet Shop Boys were popular when I lived in Albuquerque, so I automatically hated them.

I didn't really have a choice.

This song always reminded me of Dominoes pizza and The Noid.

It also reminds me of going to the arcades in the 80's.

I loved the arcades.

Which leads to the question ~

Do you play to win?

Or are you just a bad loser?

Chris is a horrible domino player. He looses every time we play. I let him win ONCE and he boasted and bragged. He is lame.

Also this song is good because I never lived in Albuquerque. I can spell Albuquerque because I had to type that word a million times on envelopes when I was in college. Yes I typed it on an actual typewriter. Man we are old.

Well this is not one of their good songs although it is one of the most famous. I just used it because Berv plays dominoes and gets beat. Berv is a bad loser. He also spells loser looser.
