The Elusive Pet Shop Boys 'Living Daylights' Demo Finally Surfaces

My friend who recently moved back to England somehow managed to score a gig working backstage at The Brits on Wednesday (hence the pics). Here's one he snapped of Lady GaGa and Neil Tennant of the Pet Shop Boys standing in front of a poster of the Killers.

TWO CLIPS: 1.) The demo the PSBs did for the 1987 James Bond flick The Living Daylights, and d.) Neil and Chris Lowe being interviewed with Lady GaGa following their Brit Awards performance:

In the end the producers of The Living Daylights ended up going with A-Ha's theme s0ng instead, and the Pet Shop Boys' demo was later reworked into the track "This Must Be The Place I Waited Years To Leave" on their 1990 album Behaviour.
