Missed this when Transparent put it up initially, but it's worth posting. Active Childwent ahead and took Lonely Galaxy's ridiculously sad and, um, lonely "Have a Heart," double-tracked the vocals and slowed it down. Now it sounds like it's being beamed live from the moon. Alternately, if you want to get into the "sounds like _____" game, there's a lot of The Knife here. Icy and cold, spaceship synths everywhere, combined with the repeated refrain "at least I have a heart." This song just got kinda threatening. The original version, along with this remix and a couple other jammers, is coming at you from Transparent in April.
