Discography - cover


the complete singles collection
release date: 4 November 1991
chart: UK #3, US #111

As the name suggests, Discography is a collection of all of the hit singles by Pet Shop Boys up to that point (1991), alongside two new tracks "DJ culture" and "Was it worth it?". Although all the songs on this album had appeared in some form on their previous albums, only six of the songs previously appeared on an album in their single versions.
The album contains the Pet Shop Boys cover version of U2's hit "Where The Streets Have No Name", which later in the song breaks into the chorus of The Four Seasons' "Can't Take My Eyes Off You".
Around the time of the release of Discography, Pet Shop Boys also released a video collection, Videography, consisting of the music videos for each of the songs on this album in a slightly different order and with the song Was it worth it? being replaced with How can you expect to be taken seriously?, which itself was not on the audio versions of the album, despite being part of a double a-side with "Where the streets have no name (I can't take my eyes off of you)" (the exclusion due to the constrictions of the CD's running time).
