CSS – Let’s Make Love & Listen To Death From Above (12″ & 7″ Singles)

Let's Make Love & Listen To Death From Above CoverSub Pop SP723 / SP727: 4th September 2006
1. Let’s Make Love & Listen To Death From Above (Original / Instrumental / Spank Rock Remix / Diplo Remix)
“Come back, I’ll warm you up, make me breakfast, I’ll make it up, you are so talented, I’m in love, let’s make love and listen to death from above”
2. Acho Um Pouco Bom
“Acho um pouco bom, acho um pouco bom, acho um pouco bom”

CSS stands for Cansei De Ser Sexy (According to Alta-Vista’s Babel-Fish it translates as something like “Tired of being sexy”) and they’re from far away Brazil (“Brazil, where hearts were entertained in June…etc). ‘Let’s Make Love & Listen To Death From Above’ can be simply described as the theme from Knight-Rider combined with a 50’s Horror film soundtrack with Chicks On Speed rapping over the top and it’s twice as brilliant as that sounds.

The ‘Spank Rock Remix’ has a meatier Bass sound, phone-call effects and is better in almost every way than the original. However, it’s a shame that they merely Remixed it and didn’t add any extra lyrics like they did on their recent Remix of Coldcut. The ‘Diplo Remix’ completely ditches the music from the original and crafts an entirely new and bewilderingly odd backdrop. In keeping with Diplo’s superb work with M.I.A. it’s like nothing else but it’s still insanely catchy.

I also looked up ‘Acho Um Pouco Bom’ with the Babel-Fish and apparently it means, “I’ve found a little good”. None of the lyrics are in English so I couldn’t comment on them, but the music isn’t really much cop anyway.
