English synth-pop duo Pet Shop Boys have released 14 studio albums, four live albums, eight compilation albums, four remix albums, three soundtrack albums, two extended plays and 65 singles. The duo’s debut single, “West End Girls”, was first released in 1984 but failed to chart in most regions. However, the song was entirely re-recorded in late 1985, and this newly recorded version became their first number-one single, topping the UK Singles Chart, Billboard Hot 100 and Canadian Singles Chart. Parlophone released the duo’s debut album, Please, in the United Kingdom in March 1986. The album peaked at number three on the UK Albums Chart and was certified Platinum by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI). It also peaked at number seven on the Billboard 200 in the United States and was certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIA) The following summer they released “It’s a Sin”, the lead single from their second album, Actually. The single became another UK number one and also reached number nine in the US. This was followed by “What Have I Done to Deserve This?”, with Dusty Springfield, which peaked at number two in both the UK and US. In the summer of 1987, the Pet Shop Boys recorded a cover of Brenda Lee’s song “Always on My Mind”, which became their third UK number-one single over Christmas 1987. This was followed by another UK number one, “Heart”, in spring 1988. The album Actually was released in September 1987, peaked at number two in the UK and was certified three-times Platinum by the BPI.
