"How Can You Expect to Be Taken Seriously?" is, together with AA-side "Where the streets have no name (I can't take my eyes off you)", the third single from Pet Shop Boys' album "Behaviour". It was released in the UK as an AA-side by Parlophone Records on 11 March 1991. It was subsequently released as a single in its own right in the United States and France. The single later peaked at a low #93 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

As "Being Boring" and "It's Alright" weren't released in the US, tracks from these releases were used on a number of the American releases.

Of interest to collectors, EMI USA commissioned dance DJ David Morales to create 5 remixes that were released to clubs and DJs on a limited promotion 12". Morales would later work with the duo co-writing and co-producing the 1999 single "New York City Boy".
