David Byrne, Fatboy Slim, Cyndi Lauper and Tori Amos - Why Dont You Love Me

The story of Imelda Marcos furthers on, with the help of David Byrne and Fatboy Slim. Much like their previous featured tracks from Here Lies Love, the gentlemanly-duo enlists some star-powered feminine vocals to emotionalize their material.

This newest feature pairs the remarkable voices of Tori Amos and Cyndi Lauper as they get funky over a super slick bass line that begs you to dance a la disco, even though the story behind the track bears much more significant weight.


Byrne explains: This song is sung in an imaginary duet between Imelda and Estrella, who have no contact with one another at this point. After the assassination of Aquino, one woman feels betrayed by her countrymen, and the other feels betrayed by her old friend and former charge. Here lies love.

So excited about this project! I'm a HUGE Cyndi fan... as well as Roisin and David Byrne.

I can't find a working RSS feed for your new site location. Everyone I find on this page just shows old content with the latest post being from December. Any help?

I love this theme, it's exciting haha thanks for sharing, my contribution here.
