Pet Shop Boys censored by China

PET SHOP BOYS have had to censor their latest album after the Chinese government took offence to some lyrics.

The pop duo were forced to change the lyrics to a track on Yes, their 10th album, before it could go on sale in China.

Officials were offended by the words of Legacy, which read: "Governments fall/ Glaciers melt/ Hurricanes bawl.../ Resentment remains/ both east and west."

But singer Neil Tennant is baffled by the outrage the song has caused and said: "Does the Chinese government really fear the power of a song to bring about change?"
