Pet Shop Boys Savage Trump And Brexit In Blistering New Single: “Let’s Give Stupidity A Chance” [VIDEO]

The Guardian reports:

British synth-pop duo Pet Shop Boys have returned with a new song that makes fun of Michael Gove and Donald Trump. Entitled Give Stupidity a Chance, the upbeat track is deeply ironic, calling for a world devoted to self-centredness and unencumbered by political correctness.

One lyric sung by Neil Tennant runs: “Intelligent people have had their say / It’s time for the foolish to show the way … We’ve had quite enough of experts and their dealings / Why face the facts when you can just feel the feelings?” This is a riff on Gove’s infamous statement ahead of the Brexit vote that “people in this country have had enough of experts”.

In the song’s middle eight, Tennant sings: “Chicks are always up for it / You’ve got to grab whatever you can / We need a leader who knows money means class / With an eye for a peach-perfect piece of ass” – a sly reference to Donald Trump.
