Doubly relevant actually since Johnny Marr from the Smiths lends his guitar and harmonica abilities on the new PSB album too.
When/where were you out when you heard Domino Dancing?

Davcuts ~ You can also see their UK and other chart positions at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pet_Shop_Boys_discography - Love Etc. is their 41st UK Top 20 hit.

Wore out several copies of Mike Oldfield's QE2, gave away my Tubular Bells lp. Couldn't wait for the '80's to end, turned off the radio.

Once, when I listened to Beethoven's 9th, it struck me that these four movements illustrate the four noble truths.
1st movement: unclear, searching, suffering ... dukkha
2nd movement: strong, energetic, powerful craving
3rd movement: quiet bliss ... nibbana
4th movement: the main ideas in the song are joy and friendship, and did not Buddha once sum up the eightfold path as friendship? So this movement contains the entire path.
So, was Beethoven a buddhist? He probably had not even heard about buddhism. But he had some very good ideas for his music.
