Do You Feel Like Dancing

Ok – this is not what I was expecting – Scissor Sisters are back and the seem to be channelling the Bee Gees over what seems like samples of the piano riff from ‘Oh What A Night’ in the background for the first single I Don’t Feel Like Dancing from their (at least at casa Homoeclectic) sophomore release Ta-Dah.

I have mixed feelings about this – the track has a certain Saturday night strut across the floor appeal, and at times it feels like SS are trying to write their own ‘Comfortably Numb’, but at the same time, given how much we loved their debut album the track feels like a bit of a let down.

Let me know what you think.

It's a grower. Play it a bit and see what you think.

Given that debut of theirs, everyone will be gunning for them.
That said, it doesn't make me feel like dancing... especially with the 70s scifi laser effects.

It's more of an answer to Leo Sayers 'You Make Me Feel Like Dancing'!

It is a grower, I kinda like it!

To me the start of it sounds like "Let Your Love Flow" by the Bellamy Brothers
