Remember Moby’s Rio from last week? I still see (and smell!) the smoke-tinged air from Duran Duran’s Facebook burning up with flaming comments from Duranies and diehards that weren’t necessarily in support of Moby’s interpretation. I just don’t think I’ve seen that kind of anger and (mostly unjustified) vitriol regarding something that Duran Duran has been involved with since….well, ever.
Well, this is another week…and what I’m about to share here is certainly no Moby’s Rio. This week, Manimal shares an edit (By LUXXURY) of Girls on Film. To my ears, it’s pretty much a remix, and well-done at that. What you’ll hear when you listen is a fantastic bass line brought to the forefront with a solid dance beat not unlike the original, just a bit reimagined and brought up to date.
The only complaint I can imagine reading from fans is that it’s just a remix…and if I see that today, I’ll chuckle to myself knowing that once again…there is really no pleasing everyone.
This edit will not be on the upcoming Making Patterns Rhyme album, in fact a LUXXURY edit of Planet Earth will take that place; but Manimal chose to share this edit with the world as a bonus. Here’s the link, check it out for yourself and let me know what you think!
