When I was at my roommate's friends', I mentioned Pet Shop Boys and one of the girls asked me to play some of their songs. When "You Only Tell Me You Love Me When You're Drunk" was playing, she said it sounds almost like a woman singing and reminds her of Enya.
While I was eating dinner today, I played Pet Shop Boys in my new apartment. My new roommate expressed her liking for Paninaro '95. I said PSB is a British duo. "Are they a man and a woman?" she asked. I said they're both male. "Then who is that girl singing?!" she said surprisedly, referring to the chorus, "Paninaro, Paninaro, oh-oo-oh" sung by Neil Tennant.
Is Neil Tennant's voice that feminine? LOL
I love his voice no matter how you'd like to describe it. Also his lyrics, and his sentimental, mild-mannered, sometimes sarcastic tone of singing/rapping.
