Please Don't Say
Whatever your feelings about Madonna, still ambivalent in my case, you really must admit that she has fantastic taste in collaborators. Her latest single “Sorry,” which I reviewed for synthpop.net, is a great example of her bringing together great people that I admire in the name of her music. Not only did the talented Stuart Price produce the original version, but the single has two of his remixes including a floor filling version of the awkwardly worded “Let It Will Be”. Green Velvet and Paul Oakenfold contribute as well, but the highlight is Pet Shop Boys take on the song which is absolutely epic and features additional vocals from Neil Tennant making for a mix that is the duo's most involved since they worked with Bowie. Download the original from her myspace page or stream the PSB maxi-mix with winamp.
