What is weird here ?
Perhaps Pet Shop Boys were inspired by that tune from FF - that's all !

The Pet Shop boys version is a cover. The original was recorded by the Village People in 1979...



The song has a very common "Pachelbel's Canon" chord progression that's used everywhere...



Go West also happens to sound like the Russian National Anthem...

Are you sure it's the progression found in Pachelbel's Canon in D, and not the even more often-used I-V-vi-IV progression that Rob Paravonian mistakes for Pachelbel's Canon in D?

There's a mention on the Go West Wikipedia page and it cites an interview with the Pet Shop Boys where they say...


Quote:


Neil: Then Chris enticed me into it by pointing out that it was the same chord change as Pachelbel's Canon. And that indeed worked.

Chris: I knew that would swing over Neil to my way of thinking.
