Lisztomania – The Brat Pack Mashup

Hello loves.

I’ve got a new favourite song. It’s called Lisztomania, and it’s by a group called Phoenix.

Phoenix are from French France, Versailles to be precise.  

According to Wikipedia, Phoenix started as the backing band for a remix of Air’s “Kelly Watch the Stars” single. Phoenix released their debum album in 2000.

Fast forward to 2009, and they’ve released this fabulously catchy little number.

Plus, joy of joys a YouTube member called avoidantconsumer decided to create a brat pack mashup as an alternative video for the song. So, not only do I get to listen to a fabulously kitsch piece of pop perfection, it’s accompanied by some of my favourite film snippets. I spied (with my little eye) The Breakfast Club, Mannequin, Pretty in Pink and Footloose (well I think it’s Footloose – if not, I’m sure y’all will hit up the comments to tell me what an idiot I am).

Enjoy xxx
