Make-Out Sessions

Cosmo Vitelli- Dance With Me: Unlike yesterday's post of Hot Chip's Shining Escalade, this song would feel totally unnessecary inside on a rainy afternoon. In fact it would feel unnessecary most of the time and only under the right circumstances would this track go off well. But let's say you are at a super fun dance party where nobody takes themselves too seriously, and everybody has a penchant for straight up disco, cause that's what this is- straight disco, complete with corny lyrics that only Europeans could think of, this might get your feet moving and your arms pumping. This comes from a split 10" record with The Whitest Boy Alive. And the production is fantastic by the way.

Ratatat- Cherry: Let's pretend your dance party went well and you and your new sweetheart are heading back to your place to make-out. You totally need some make-out music and Barry White just doesn't suit you, Marvin Gaye is too obvious, and, well, none of that classic make-out music will cut it anymore cause you are a new generation and you need your own make-out soundtrack. Don't get me wrong I'm not suggesting you shelve your Tears for Fears records or anything. I just have to agree with Pitchfork and say that this is one of the hottest make-out songs ever.

The Cosmo Vitelli song is a limp cover of an old gothy post-punk song by the Lords of the New Church, a band made up of ex-members of some first-wave punks. Which, if you heard the original, would make you scratch your head at the sound they adopted. True, the lyrics are hideous, but the original is sounds a lot more tough than this disco version.
