Pet Shop Boys - Requiem In Denim And Leopardskin Lyrics




I thought it was like a film
Reviewed but never seen
Where everybody played themselves
As a drama king or queen
The music was overwhelming
Glittering and thin
Solemn and shabby like a requiem
In denim and leopardskin
I visualize the flashbacks
School, punk rock, success
Parties, too much of everything
The cliches, the candles, the mess

Lucian in the scene with David
Bryan in a tux
McCartney on a blitz in Zanzibar
All Hollywood Redux
Ossie's last collection
Biba's closing sale
A little more rouge on powdered cheeks
But the base is pale

This is our last chance for goodbye
Let the music begin
Shining and soaring like a requiem
In denim and leopardskin

It ended with the motorbike
A search for evidence
Poring over old photographs
To make it all fake sense
Glamorous in its own way
Shouting above the din
Solemn and shabby like a requiem
In denim and leopardskin

Johnny's wearing brothel creepers
Malcolm's round the block
Adam's in a Jarman film
But look he's let it rock
The Johnson's leather jacket
Hair by Keith at Smile
All you need to make it big is sex and style

This is our last chance for goodbye
Let the music begin
Shining and soaring like a requiem
In denim and leopardskin

This is our last chance for goodbye
Let the music begin
Shining and soaring like a requiem
In denim and leopardskin

(Requiem in denim and leopardskin)

This is our last chance for goodbye
Let the music begin
Shining and soaring like a requiem
In denim and leopardskin

This is our last chance for goodbye
Let the music begin
Shining and soaring like a requiem
In denim and leopardskin

    Let the music begin
    Shining and soaring like a requiem

    This was the perfect track for your compilation idea covering 3 decades of filmmaking with the B&W sequences, the topping. The music, the lyrics, the sheer intelligentsia have proven timeless.

    Unlike Ariana Grande, with whom I and 6 others wagered a pricey bet on when she"ll join the buh bye club "like JNCOS, Fish-net-stocking Dresses and Fuzz-Lined half boots. So whenever you hear the word honey followed by "it's going to be timeless" sell it short and you'll make a fortune!
