MP3 OF THE WEEK: Marvin The Martian Vs Calvin Harris – Acceptable In The 80s mp3

“Before Bobby and Whitney were out gettin’ high, passin’ the Dutchie on the left hand side, Eddie Murphy couldn’t be too rude, language colourful as Rubic’s Cubes”

After loving Calvin’s first release ‘Vegas / Merry Making’, I was less keen on the follow-up singles ‘Girls’ and ‘Acceptable In The 80s’ (The rest of the country seems have gone bonkers about them anyway). So I’m trilled that the genius who is Marvin The Martian has decided to give Calvin his remix treatment. Previous Indie stars to be blessed with a Marvin rework have included GoodBooks, The Maccabees and Art Brut. It’s jam-packed with cultural references for children of the 80s like myself… ahhh it brings back memories of Opal-Fruits and Marathon bars.
