When I think of sexy sounding music, The Gossip is often the last thing that pops into my head. Usually when I think of The Gossip, the first thing that pops into my head is an image of Beth Ditto squeezing packets of condiments into her mouth while giggling on a couch somewhere with Perez Hilton, or just generally being the loudest, craziest lady within 20 square miles.
But this song, as remixed by Rory Phillips, is absolutely sexy. Beth Ditto drops the Godzilla-like musical destruction in favor of some paired down vocals that don’t sound out of place on a Coney Island boardwalk clad with disco rollerskaters in the 1970s.
Do yourself a little favor this Monday and time travel – just a little bit.
