“I'm lonely, you're lonely too”

It's not often that a song manages to be both irresistably dance-worthy and darkly melancholy at the same time. The Pet Shop Boys, for sure, have managed it. And, this song by prolific Finnish duo Viola certainly fits the bill. The group's first release back in 2001 was titled Only Pop Music Can Break Your Heart, and I think this really says it all. Since then, they have released seven more albums/eps of dark, catchy electronic pop. Pretty impressive, if you ask me. Even more impressive is the quality of their work, highlighted by Sad Eyed Disco Dancers, a stark, catchy piece of art-dance-rock, if there is such a thing.

now this i like but i may certainly have to steal "only pop music can break your heart" as the title of my official autobiography. How beautifully poetic. it made me want to cry. or that could be cos i stood on a thumbtack a few seconds ago and now probably have lockjaw...

I am overjoyed that after standing on a tack your first instinct was to visit my blog! It can cure all, you know...
