Ladyhawke - Back Of The Van

Just heard the Fred Falke remix of Back Of The Van while trying on shorts at Macy's.  Blew my head right off.

* Back Of The Van
* Back Of The Van (Fred Falke Ultimate Beverly Mix)

Falke easily channels early post-disco awesomeness in the first rare pop gem that I've been excited about for just years and years.  I can't recommend it enough.

You set me on fire.

[Edit: This was a very difficult song to track down, BTW. There are like (seriously) 50 songs with the title "You Set Me On Fire" and "Set Me On Fire," completely running the genre gamut from blues to techno and back again through jazz and metal. It wasn't easy, but it was totally worth the effort.]

[Edit 2: Now reviewing her eponymous LP, can't stop thinking of Out Of Touch - era Hall & Oates.]
