Pet Shop Boys censored by Chinese officials

The Pet Shop Boys have been forced to censor their latest album by the Chinese government.

The duo released Yes, their 10th record, earlier this year - but were made to change the lyrics to a track before it could hit the shelves in China.

Officials in the country took offence to the words of Legacy: "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.

He says, "Does the Chinese government really fear the power of a song to bring about change?"
