Nothing Has Been Proved 30 years ago

Postby Clive » Sat Feb 02, 2019 7:36 pm

It is 30 years ago this month that Nothing Has Been Proved was released.

I first heard it on BBC Radio 1 show called Singled Out which used to review the new single releases on a Friday evening. I was slightly disappointed on first listen as I couldn’t identify a strong hook or chorus.

It got a good review on the show as far as I recall though and I was confident it would make the charts because of the Pet Shop Boys production and also as theme to the film Scandal which was quite high profile.

The song did grow on me after a few listens and it was so lovely to have Dusty back in the charts with a solo hit and on Top of The Pops, BAFTA award show etc. She looked happy and confident and I was delighted.

What are your memories and thoughts on the song?

Well I loved it straight off and thought that it was classic Dusty. She lifts the roof off in the final chorus. Sounds even better today. Dusty, Christine & Mandy are all gone now. :rose:

Great song and true to the story at the time. A great scandal then but wouldnt matter hardly at all by todays standards and behaviour.
She should have had much more success at this time. Lost opportunities again for her.
Thanks as always to the Pet Shop Boys. :thumbsup:
