Nowadays I have taken to skulking around SoundCloud - where else can I find some good unofficial remixes and a decent progressive house track or two. On my travels through this alternate world of sound I came across this remix of a Dead Man’s Bones track. Now, hand on heart, I can tell you “My Body’s a Zombie for You” is one of my favourite songs - slightly haunting, melodious and bloody catchy!
I thought therefore I would give this song a listen! Plus the cover art was a person dressed as a skeleton (anyone who knows me personally knows I love dressing up as a skeleton). WIN!!
Whilst I will be the first to admit I haven’t heard the original version of this song, part of me now doesn’t want to. I love this remix (so much so I’ve listened to it 3 times already today). The remix keeps true to the slightly creepy edge of DMB songs, but now had that electro pop which gets you swaying along. It has what sounds like the typical mock horror electric organ in tango tying the song together, making me think of all the Hammer House of Horror Shows and Scooby-Doo-esque programmes I used to watch as a child. The vocals are as always superb, but the remix has retained that haunting, smoky, drawn out voice you can instantly associate with this act.
And the lyrics, all I can say is…..
I GET UP IN THE MORNING TO THE BEAT OF THE DRUMS!!
I got up this morning to the beat of their drums! Not funny I know.
