Personal Jesus

Noooooooo!

I can't take it any more people. Hilary Duff has used Depeche Modes Personal Jesus for her latest steaming pile.

Honestly can't people write their OWN music any more?
It is like that Flo Rider song where he has basically just ripped off Dead or Alive and added a few words over the top.

TOTALLY. NOT. COOL.

BTW I am aware that both Marilyn Manson and Johnny Cash have done a cover of Personal Jesus but they didn't coat it with saccharine and make me want to vomit in my mouth.

So today I am featuring the one..the only Depeche Mode.

Sneaky Sound System


Last week I headed off to the good ol' RSL to see Sneaky Sound System "live". Yes I put the word "live" in inverted commas because it was just a notch above karoake..minus the little television with the words that come up. Backing tracks and vocal boosting Britney style galore..but what did I expect from a $35 RSL gig?

I have seen Youtube video's which show SSS with a full band and Connie
(the lead singer)
can actually belt it out quite well so I didn't hold this against them. Besides everyone seemed to enjoy the performance..or maybe they enjoyed the cheap drinks. I'm still trying to work that one out.

I still like Sneaky Sound System because finally Australia has a decent dance band that isn't uncool to like. Also it's good that someone like Connie has finally got some success after doing her time with other bands like Primary.

I had a bit of a laugh because I always think of that Simpsons episode where The Who play and say "Goodnight Springton there will be no encore". It cracks me up that bands feel the need to say the suburb's name they are playing a hundred times.


With no further ado here is my favourite Sneaky Sound System song "I Love It". Pity about the skanky dancer hoes they felt necessary to include on the clip. Connie is better looking than all of them.

Misfit - Curiosity Killed the Cat


Today's track is by British band Curiosity Killed the Cat.
The reason I chose this video is because it features a little cameo by Andy Warhol. Andy stands in the street Bob Dylan style and throws card board around like the video to Subterranean Homesick Blues.
You have to wait until about the 2 minute 44 secs mark to see Andy. He doesn't look terribly enthused but neither would I if someone danced near me like that. He doesn't help the white men can't dance theory.
