One of my site visitors has also suggested that the lyrics might reflect the Pet Shop Boys' feelings about the pop press at the time, which frequently offered unwelcome speculation about the personal lives of pop stars. It's an interesting interpretation, and well worth considering. If that's the case, this song could be heard as a statement of defiance: "I'd go anywhere, baby—I don't care." And could that be Neil speaking as a former pop journalist when he sings, "If I was you, I wouldn't treat me the way you do"?
SoFi Stadium, which came with a price tag in the neighborhood of $5 billion, is as majestic as it is revolutionary. The indoor-outdoor dynamic is unprecedented, helped by a translucent roof, exposed sides and an expansive plaza. The pronounced curves that make up the infrastructure pay homage to the Pacific Ocean's coastline; the landscape throughout is representative of California's indigenous trees. But the hallmark is the videoboard, one SoFi Stadium's chief technology officer, Skarpi Hedinsson, expects to become "the eighth wonder of the sports world."
I am a baby boomer, but I prefer the term "cold warrior." I came of age when the United States was locked in a global confrontation with the Soviet Union. As an American diplomat during those years, I was among the leaders and policymakers who firmly pushed back against Soviet revisionism and expansionism, exposing socialism for the sham it is and bringing it to capitulation.
I guess cold warrior does sound better than baby boomer, which could be the name of a Muppet Babies villain, and the name fits this fella's experience to a capital T. I can't see the term working beyond that, though. I was raised in the era of Star Wars, but I don't call myself rebel scum.
