Inner Sanctum

Songfacts®:

  • This was inspired by what happened to Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe after they did a show in Las Vegas. Tennant recalled to The Sun: "We played this small gig in an electronic dance music club and found ourselves in this inner sanctum. We didn't know why we were there or anyone in there. It made me think how the dream of EDM clubbing today is to get into the inner sanctum. You've failed if you don't get there where the supermodels and Kanye and Kim are."

    "The EDM scene is all about a champagne lifestyle whereas the rave scene was a bottle of water," he added. "That's why we like Berlin."
