dslcd@AndyShore This is the dance party match up. I’d be happy to have either one of them come on once I was sufficiently socially lubricated. Although, I don’t quite cut a rug like Zack does. This is honestly just a matter of preference. Some will be LCD Soundsystem “Dance Yrself Clean” people and some will be Duck Sauce “Barbara Streisand” people. The best part is, you can’t go wrong. I couldn’t honestly say that about all of the match ups thus far. I won’t be sad to see either advance, but I will be sad knowing that one of them is out of the race. So ask yourself: are you more of the indie-electronica type or the disco house type? Will you “Dance Yrself Clean” this round or get down and dirty with Duck Sauce and Babs?

@ZackTeibloom How could LCD follow up a contender for album of the decade in Sound of Silver? They started This is Happening with “Dance Yrself Clean.” That’s how.  The build-up is breathtaking. Once it hits, it explodes on you and you forget the three minutes you spent on the rise. “Barbara Streisand” is a fun little number that relies a bit on the kitsch factor of saying “Barbara Streisand,” but it does not kick off a world-class album. “Dance Yrself Clean” is the perfect lead-up to “Drunk Girls” and when James Murphy finally started singing it to kick off LCD shows, all was right in the world.

@AndyShore The Jews and gays may have something to say about Zack calling the fact that they say “Barbara Streisand” kitsch. I’m going to echo the intro for the Podcrash on this one. We listen to a lot of bands with stupid ass lyrics. This is far from the worst. Also, I don’t think you can call a song with a video that has 21.6 million plays kitsch. “Barbara Streisand” may not kick off a world class album, but it was an international hit across all the charts. That’s world class something. Also, there’s no waiting for “Barbara Streisand” to get you moving. It’s off to the races from the starting gun. Somehow it builds, even from the fast start. Nobody is going to lose interest if you play this song for them. You may lose someone before you even get to the best part of “Dance Yrself Clean.” How does that make it a better song?
