If this song doesn't make you wish you had been a teen in the 70s sneaking to the under 18s disco at the Wigan Casino, your favourite band must be the Jesus and Mary Chain.

Gotye - Learnalilgivinanlovin

Gotye must occupy some bizarre universe where forty years ago, The Ronettes and Frank Wilson frolicked in a field. Either that, or their parents were hardcore Ian Levine addicts. Either way, the outcome is the same - a rose-tinted Motown classic forty years after the genre's conception. If this song doesn't make you wish you had been a teen in the 70s sneaking to the under 18s disco at the Wigan Casino, your favourite band must be the Jesus and Mary Chain.

On the flipside, Jake Bullit's remix somehow manages to transform what could easily be mistaken as a forgotten soul classic into what sounds like the product of a one night stand between Black Ghost's 'Anyway You Choose To Give It' and Justice's 'D.A.N.C.E'. Styrofoamkid's, on the other hand, demolishes this blessed union by conjuring up the image of someone sat prodding at My First Casio to create a vaguely late 90s clubbing sound. As a back-to-back offering, the whole concept is a bit mystifying.
