Olivia Newton-Christ

All we can do is playing a song
All we can do is playing a song

 

Can't you see what I can see now?
Are you facing me?

Can't you see what I can see now?
Are you facing me?

Can't you see what I can see now?
Are you facing me?

Can't you see what I can see now?
Are you facing me?

 

Can't you see what I can see now?
Are you facing me?

Can't you see what I can see now?
Are you facing me?

 

All we can do is playing a song
All we can do is playing a song

 

Can't you see what I can see now?
Are you facing me?

Can't you see what I can see now?
Are you facing me?

Can't you see what I can see now?
Are you facing me?

Can't you see what I can see now?
Are you facing me?

CD-review:

That'll be Giles Barton and Lee Wilson-Wolfe then, returning on a new label with their first outing in three years, mixing it up with chill out dance, indie and pop, straddling a chasm between Air, Belle & Sebastian, Pet Shop Boys and Clannad (no, really, listen to the moody "Coming Up For Air" where Imogen Heap provides her detached Nico) with a dash of Eurotrance rock (the vocodered vocal and itchy hooks of "We Live In Cities" and the break my stride walking rhythm "No Transmission", vocals lifted from an American chat show apparently) to a generally hypnotic melodic effect. It's all very designer clothes store shopping music, wafting gently through the breeze with a hint of perfume in its wake on but occasionally furrowing its brow to darken the ethereal washes for "Olivia Newton Christ", get into r&b with "50 Foot Strides" or stressing the electronica webs as on the title track and a closing decidedly not Latin cosmic floating "Cuba". French dance music for Francophobes really.

I have no idea whether this song has been dedicated to Olivia Newton-John or what kind of sense the lyrics have. 

But on the other hand everybody who is reading the song titel "Olivia Newton Christ" will sure be thinking about Olivia Newton-John.
