I was really pleased that they released Leaving as a single. It's one of the most traditionally Pet Shop Boys sounding songs on Elysium and it's a far, far better song than the preceeding lead single Winner. As for the b-sides for the single, whilst I do prefer the B-sides for Winner by the thinnest of margins Leaving's three B-sides add further weight to the argument that Pet Shop Boys are one of the finest B-sides acts in pop music. My personal favorite is In His Imagination, which is a gorgeous ballad that is a strong contender for their best song in years, if not one of their best ever. It would have fitted on Elysium very well too I think - moreso than Winner or Hold On does. It's perhaps even better than Leaving. Never the less, Leaving is a lovely song that - judging by its chart position - looks set to become a mostly forgotten PSB classic.
