Yoko Ono and Jason Pierce – Walking On Thin Ice

Walking On Thin Ice was a great single anyway but this remix (from Ono’s excellent Yes, I’m A Witch album) is better. Much better. Not only because it’s full of the beauty and drama of that familiar Spiritualized sound – but because it allows us to hear what a great singer Yoko can be. Her phrasing is superb: the breaking up of the words, the pauses, and the slightly mannered, but deeply affecting, vulnerability.
