The Human League/The Future - Dance Like A Star EP
Golden Hour of the Future was a fantastic compilation of early Human League (and pre Phil Oakey, as The Future) songs and demos that came out in around 2002. Just before it came out, a limited 12" EP of tracks that weren't collected on the album came out. We've got a couple of different versions of Dance Like A Star, the disco funeral march of C'est Grave and a few more instrumentals besides.
I love this EP, mainly as it's got the massively snotty intro version of Dance Like a Star ("We're the Human League, and we're *much* cleverer that YOU"). Ah, for a time when electro pop used to be interesting... what have we got now? People like La Roux. And it's always the same old formula, girl backed by much older gentleman(or men) doing nothing that hasn't been done much better a million times before. Yuk.
One day, something *interesting* will happen. It has to. It will.
And after all that, I'm probably going to post something like Roman Holliday next.

(hang on, how did I remember Roman Holliday had two l's?....eep)
