God, they’re so spot on.
Today, the Pet Shop Boys announced the release of a deluxe version of Yes entitled, what else? “etc.”
The album will include a PSB/Xenomania collabo called “This used to be the future” featuring vocals by Philip Oakey from The Human League, followed by six dub mixes of various tracks on the album.
1. This used to be the future
2. More than a dream (Magical dub)
3. Pandemonium (The stars and the sun dub)
4. The way it used to be (Left of love dub)
5. All over the world (This is a dub)
6. Vulnerable (Public eye dub)
7. Love etc. (Beautiful dub)
I approve, though I can’t help but imagine “This used to be the future” as a robotic, post-modern upgrade to “This Used To Be My Playground.” Is it so wrong to dream anymore?!
And then there’s this, a new report from the Sun.
Gaga‘s gone and done the impossible, usurping the Aloud‘s authority for a duet with the Pet Shop Boys on The BRITs.
According to the article, she will be “sexing-up” the otherwise pleasant, jazz-fueled Dusty Springfield song from 1989, “Nothing Has Been Proved.”
Somewhere, a kitten dies and a teardrop slowly falls from a mother’s eye.
Okay, let’s just think sensibly about this for a moment. I mean, The Boys have obviously cleared her to do the performance, so it can’t be a complete and utter mess, can it?
No really, I’m asking, because all I’ve got in my mind right now are visions of Gaga straddling Lowe’s keyboard and licking his face.
The BRITs 2009 will be broadcast live in just two days. Rest assured–the show will still blow The Grammy’s straight out of the water.
