Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

Now that's what I call a crap remix...

I remember a time when the Pet Shop Boys put out really good remixes of their songs, remixes that expanded and enhanced the original song in interesting and exciting directions, but retained something of the character and flavour of the original song.

And in fairness, they still do that from time to time.

But, all things considered, I'd have to say that the Basement Jaxx remix of A Red Letter Day, um..isn't one of them. It's sort of down there with the remixes of Liberation. Really really dire.

Still, shuffle play has been good to me so far, even giving me a couple of Beverley Craven songs, so there's bound to be something good on next.

In really good news, I found my anti-depressants. Although the work security tag remains elusive.
