Pet Shop Boys “Being Boring”
The British duo that delivered infectious hits in the ‘80s including “West End Girls,” “It’s a Sin” and “What Have I Done to Deserve This” released their ode to the HIV/AIDS generation with 1990’s “Being Boring.” Neil Tenant and Chris Lowe captured the sentiment of those who grew up and came out during the early years of the epidemic.

“Now I sit with different faces / In rented rooms and foreign places / All the people I was kissing / Some are here and some are missing / In the nineteen-nineties,” they opined in the their remarkably moving song.
