West End Girls” was originally released by the Pet Shop Boys in 1984 and then a second version was released by the duo in 1986. It went on to conquer the British charts and reach the top spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart in the United States. In 2005 British Academy of Songwriters and Composers named Pet Shop Boys’ “West End Girls” the Song of the Decade for the years of 1984 to 1996.

Ana Matronic is best known as the lead vocalist for the Scissor Sisters, who announced they were splitting up last year following the release of their final album “Magic Hour.” When not busy with her Scissor Sisters duties Ana has managed to work on collaborations with New Order and Duran Duran over the years.

He released his debut album “Make Me Believe In Hope” last year and it is available now on iTunes. In his short time in the spotlight he has managed to tour with Ellie Goulding, Erasure and the Scissor Sisters.
