!! OMG, Kate Bush has re-recorded “Running Up That Hill” !!

With appearances by the Spice Girls, Annie Lennox, George Michael and Pet Shop Boys, yesterday’s closing ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympics was probably the gayest television extravaganza we’re likely to see on basic cable all year. To top it off, the ceremony’s musical trip through recent British pop music history included a massive dance routine to a re-recorded ‘remix’ of Kate Bush‘s seminal ’80s hit “Running Up That Hill” (that, naturally, was edited out of the U.S. broadcast).
The 2012 version of “Running” sounds more like a subtle re-working than a remix and is available via Kate Bush’s website. Here is what she had to say about the new version: “I hope you all enjoyed the remix of ‘Running Up That Hill’ this evening at the Olympics Closing Ceremony.They certainly put on a brilliant show.”

Robyn, Scissor Sisters, Owen Pallett, Nico Muhly, Hot Chip and Cut Copy are among the acts lined-up for a tribute album to the composer Arthur Russell. Entitled This Is How We Walk On The Moon, the collection is being produced by Red Hot (which previously put out the Dark Was The Night comp) in association with Pitchfork and will cover all areas of Russell’s expansive repertoire, from disco and experimental dance to singer-songwriter pop and classical cello compositions. Proceeds will go toward Red Hot’s fight against HIV/AIDS.
The project is being crowd-funded through a Kickstarter campaign. Check out the This Is How We Walk On The Moon Kickstarter video below:

!! OMG, he covers Robyn… in his underwear: Wesley Taylor !!


The Skivvies — the underwear-only singing duo of Nick Cearley and Lauren Molina — invited Broadway actor Wesley Taylor (Rock of Ages, The Addams Family, “Smash”) into their set recently for an epic mashup of Robyn’s “Call Your Girlfriend”, Blondie’s “Call Me,” and Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.” The best part, aside from the singing obviously, is proooobably when Taylor flashes a back shot of his booty in little grey undies.

“If you ask me am I gay, I say yeah. Are these songs about my relationship with a man? I say yeah. And it’s only through my music that I’ve found the strength to come to terms with my sexuality beyond the context of just my lyrics. This is my real life.”

— Lebanese-born British singer Mika talking in Instinct magazine’s September issue about his sexuality
