SONG OF THE DAY: Elton versus Pnau – “Good Morning to the Night”

Well this is kind of epic.  Granted, Elton John was fully on board and endorsing this mixed interpretation of some of his works, ranging from lyrics from “Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters” and “Tonight”, as well as instrumentation from both “Gulliver” and “Funeral for a Friend”.  Together with beats from Pnau, the whole thing sounds like a dreamy romp through some alternate dimension where everything is soft and fun.  “Good Morning to the Night” is but the first of 8 tracks from an album of Pnau-re-imagined Elton John tracks.  More information can be found at www.eltonversuspnau.com and for a dancier version of the track, head on over to the Elton Versus Pnau soundcloud for Cahill’s thumping re-rub.

Karl Hyde spoke to us about the progression of Underworld through their unique live shows and creative visions that keep us all jumping on the dancefloor.
