“West End Girls” Pet Shop Boys by Louis Sidoli
About this piece: “West End Girls” is a synth-pop record featuring Neil Tennant’s ‘spoken lyrics’ influenced by rap music. The first version was released in April 1984, produced by American producer Bobby Orlando. It became a club hit in the United States, but failed to make an impression in the UK charts. A more commercial re-recorded version was released in October 1985, reaching number one in both the United Kingdom and the United States. The song is one of the 80’s most iconic tracks and has won several music awards. In 2020, The Guardian selected “West End Girls” as number one in a critics’ poll of the 100 greatest UK number-one singles. The artwork references the themes and imagery of the song with Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe standing at the entrance to a London Underground station.

80’s Sweet Dreams Online Exhibition is a new collection of fine art prints by Louis Sidoli celebrating some of the most iconic artists and best loved singles of the 1980’s. This collection is visually linked by the ‘circle within a square’ theme, which represents a vinyl record in its sleeve. Sketches of each artist are combined with maps, text and graphics, which tell the story of each track.
“I named this collection after one of my favourite singles of the 1980’s – “Sweet Dreams” by the Eurythmics. I loved the electronic sound, the lyrics and the surreal imagery of the video.”
