Video: West End Girls "What Have I Done To Deserve This?"

While I'm sure that blogging Swedish fans of the Pet Shop Boys have know this for ages I must pass this along for the benefit for others that the girl group West End Girls are about to launch their second album Shoplifters. The first single finds the Girls, actually one of the original duo was replaced but who is paying close enough attention to notice, taking on "What Have I Done To Deserve This?" with Magnus Carlson of Weeping Willows (the 99'th most successful band in Sweden as if you didn't know) doing the Dusty Springfield bits. Perhaps because it sounds so awfully familiar the song has inspired a post with no words at PSB blog Very and one sentence of nonsense at Popjustice. Can't find too much to say about it myself:

: Stop by their myspace for more on West End Girls and the new album.

I like some of the Girls' past efforts quite a bit, but this one has a distinct air of desecration.

I suspect that it is just so bland is the reason no one one's talking. Well, at this point those who are going to have something to say already expressed their opinion with the last album so you kind of know what you're getting before you listen to it.
