Pet Shop Boys ‎– Where The Streets Have No Name (I Can’t Take My Eyes Off You) (1991)

“Where the Streets Have No Name (I Can’t Take My Eyes off You)” is a song by English synthpop duo Pet Shop Boys. The song is a medley of covers of U2’s “Where the Streets Have No Name” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”, the 1960s single by Frankie Valli, though in an arrangement informed by the 1981 disco version of the song by Boystown Gang rather than the original. The song accompanied “How Can You Expect to Be Taken Seriously?”, the third single from their 1990 album, Behaviour, as a double A-side in the UK (both singles were released separately in the U.S.). Released in March 1991, this song was the band’s fifteenth consecutive Top 20 hit in the UK, peaking at #4 on the UK Singles Chart. The band have said that they thought the guitars in the original sounded similar to a sequencer.

In the liner notes for the album Discography: The Complete Singles Collection, the Pet Shop Boys stated that they wanted to turn “a mythic rock song into a stomping disco record.”

The David Morales 12″ Dance Mix Edit comes from a French promo 12″ that was limited to 300 copies.
