Pet Shop Boys- Opportunities (Let’s Make Lots of Money)

The Pet Shop Boys, like a few other acts who were big in the 1980’s (Pixies, The Cult, The Replacements), are playing Coachella this year. This song from was on their debut album Please from 1986. This satirical song was meant to be a commentary on the consumerism of the 80’s but feels just as appropriate today.
