Pet Shop Boys – Opportunities (Let’s Make Lots Of Money) (Canada 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 21st March 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

“Opportunities (Let’s Make Lots of Money)” is a song by UK duo Pet Shop Boys, released as a single in 1985 and then in 1986, gaining greater popularity in both the United Kingdom and United States with its second release, reaching number 11 in the UK Singles Chart and number 10 in the US Billboard Hot 100.

The song’s indirect attack on its subject matter has come to exemplify the Pet Shop Boys as ironists in their songwriting.

This 12″ is for the 1986 re-release which becam a worldwide hit and features remixes by noted 1980s producer Shep Pettibone.

Shep Pettibone did not mix “Was That What It Was?”; he was booked to do so, but missed his plane, and his manager, Jane Brinton, mixed the song in his absence. It is unknown if Shep Pettibone was consulting the manager over the phone. This fact went unnoticed until Pet Shop Boys revealed it in the liner notes for the Alternative anthology of B-sides and rarities (1995), though Jane Brinton gets a “Thanks to” mention on the 12″ cover.
