Dannii: Mashed Up Again

Posted in Dance,Minogue,Music Reviews by M on September 19, 2005

The cover to Dannii Minogue's Perfection CD Single

Dannii Minogue, what’s with “Perfection (Turn Me Upside Down)”? You and the Soul Seekers are making Vicki Sue Robinson’s string section do all the heavy lifting.

Dannii, I don’t think I can trust you with these mash-ups. Let’s look at your track record:

  • “I Begin To Wonder (Dead or Alive Remix)”: Dannii, I can watch the regular video for this song and see you slink around in a dress. Or I can listen to “You Spin Me Round” and see Pete Burns slink around in a dress. I don’t need to do both.
  • “Don’t Wanna Lose This Groove”: Yeah, way to take on Madonna! This seems to be the secret: keep the Madonna music, lose the Material Girl’s vocals. Harvey Milk’s “Hollywood Express” found this out the hard way.
  • “Perfection”: It’s no “Turn The Beat Around.” Oh wait, it is. At least it’s less pointless than Gloria Estefan’s contribution to “The Specialist”.

However, your new single does have a Seamus Haji remix, and that man can do no wrong. So you’re forgiven.

Seamus Haji!
