    No one updates showtunes quite like the Pet Shop Boys. On SOMEWHERE, they take the classic from West Side Story and bring it into the present, mixing a full orchestra with samples from the street (not to mention the quietly odd muttering "I feel pretty" towards the end -- different song, guys!). Still, the track is a grand sonic statement that loses a little in translation to the dancefloor. The Trouser Enthusiasts remove it completely from context, while Forthright dub completely jettisons the original except for the samples. The b-side, "Disco Potential," doesn't live up to its potential. Stick with the orchestral version -- if you're not singing along, you don't have a soul.
