Party is a compilation album by Pet Shop Boys released exclusively in Brazil on 4 November 2009.[1]

The album was released to coincide with the Brazilian leg of their 2009 Pandemonium tour. The album includes both past hits and some newer material. Party includes songs that were heavily featured in the following TV Globo soap operas: "Being boring" (Meu Bem Meu Mal OST), "Domino dancing" (O Salvador da Patria OST), "West End girls" (Selva de Pedra OST) and "King of Rome" (Viver a Vida OST).

Several mistakes have occurred with the track listing. For example, "West End Girls" appears in its original 7" form, contrary to the labeling as the 10" version. "Paninaro '95" was included on the album, yet placed as track 3 and labelled as the 7" mix. Also, the original 1992 7" version of "Go West" appears on the album, a rare inclusion as it has not appeared on any Pet Shop Boys compilations so far. All the mistakes were fixed on later pressings of the compilation, since April 2010. Due to all the fixed mistakes on the later pressings, some edits had to be made for all 16 tracks to fit on one Compact Disc. After the mistakes were fixed, the compilation totaled 79:19, leaving just 41 seconds left on a standard CD. Five tracks were smoothly edited to fit on the album: the 10-inch version of "West End Girls" lost 15 seconds; "Love Comes Quickly" lost 4 seconds; "What Have I Done to Deserve This?" lost 7 seconds; the album version of "Go West" lost 18 seconds and "Love etc." lost 17 seconds.
