New life, new dreams... Dreams, you say?

#1 Post by nathanjay »

I was walking along thinking What would "A New Life" sound like with a 4/4 beat and groovy bassline? So I sang the lyrics in my mind while humming a bassline and I realised I was humming Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams".

So a bit of studiomagic later and BAM! They're even in the same key ;)

I love your work, so much that I barely feel worthy of commenting on it.

Weird but also impressive.
I sincerely *love* Disco 2 and listen to it straight through regularly.

Stardust vs Madonna is the best mashup ever.

Love that!

A new life has always been in my top 10 PSB songs. It's utterly beguiling and for me captures that wistfulness otherness at the heart of PSB. Thanks for this.

Thanks again everyone. It makes sense that a reverse swap should work too... Fleetwood Mac vocal over Pet Shop Boys music.
I'll add it to my to do list :D

Dancing in the Dusk with a Fleetwood Mac track would be interesting...

Brilliant as always Nathan. :clap:


I always thought that the PSB's Peel session of "A Powerful Friend"

and VNV Nation's "Lights go out" deserves a proper mash up by a pro....
