I'm With Stupid

Album: Fundamental (2006)
Charted: 8
  • This song is about the relationship between US president George Bush and English Prime Minister Tony Blair. They joined forces to make some questionable political decisions, including invading Iraq, and this song expresses how many in the general public consider both men dumb. The song also wonders if they really are stupid or whether it's just a cover up for something ("Is stupid really stupid or a different kind of smart?").
  • The music video featured actors David Williams and Matt Lucas (Little Britain) miming to the song in front of an unseen audience, during witch they parody old Pet Shop Boys videos of years gone by. At the end the audience is revealed to be The Pet Shop Boys, whom have been bound to there seats. >>

  • Tim from Minneapolis, MnLet's not make this about politics. I'll buy that this song was a none-too-subtle slam on Bush and Blair, but let's not assume what the general public thinks. I say this as part of the .004% of Pet Shop Boys die-hard fans who happen to also be quite conservative politically. Great song, by the way (I can usually get over questionable viewpoints when the music is this good).
  • Dave from Cardiff, WalesHit #8 in the UK over two decades after their debut #1 hit "West End Girls". Not sure but I think it may have been their 40th UK hit single. Back in 1985, most critics expected them to be gone and forgotten within the next year, but...
  • Mjn Seifer from Not Listed For Personal Reason, EnglandIt's actually "Walliams" forgive my mistake.
