main page Giorgio Moroder Wants #tomsdiner As A Single!

Recommended Posts

Getting further into Déjà Vu, I think we have to start with the remake of Suzanne Vega’s Tom’s Diner you did with one Ms. Britney Spears.

 

Britney had the idea of remaking some of her favorite songs, and that was the one she wanted to do with me. She called me and asked if I wanted to come down to the studio with her, but I couldn’t because I was in Europe then.

 

So she gave me the vocal, and I put it in with the basic tracks I made for it. I upgraded the tracks with my revisions. At the end of the song, I added a little Vocoder, which I’ve always loved, just to see how it worked out. She liked it, and said she wanted it all throughout the song.

 

I thought the original song was too short. I’m used to verse chorus, verse chorus, whatever, and then a bridge. So I thought, “OK, I’m going to compose a bridge.†Again, I got permission to play it with the Vocoder, and now I can say I have a song created with Britney Spears.

 

The “everybody welcome, come on in / love is the drug†lyrics you added certainly fills out the track a lot more beyond just doing a straight cover, that’s for sure.

 

Thank you. I hope that one day we’ll release it as a single.

 

Maybe you and Britney could perform it together on the Grammys next year.

 

(laughs heartily) No, I don’t think she’d want me on the stage. Maybe I could be there in a video.

 

I wasn’t saying you had to be one of her dancers, or anything like that…

 

Good. I would have to lose a lot of weight to stand next to her! (both laugh) 

 

 

That bridge still remains the worst part, Britney wanted the vocoder throughout the entire track, and Moroder def wants this song as a single.  The rest of this interview can be read here.

Am I the only one who's already used to Giorgio's voice on the bridge? I mean, at first I thought it was so out of place but now I just accept it as part of the song :gloria:

And omg, I need this song to become a single, even if it flops harder than Perfume, I just need to see Britney in the MV and the song added to POM  :crying1:

I actually like the bridge :mhm: I picture him as the man behind the counter that poors the coffee and stuff and during the instrumental breaks (the other people in the diner) do a dance break behind Britney around the tables and stuff and after every time Britney looks behind her and they're all jut sitting there.

So she's wanting to be normal, but her career and paparazzi are doing stuff behind her (like they're doing it behind her back at this normal diner)

It's hard to explain, but that's how I think the music video should go :mhm:

Anyways #TomsDinerForSingle

Why couldn't he do it when it leaked two months ago and there was MAJOR hype for it? The hype is completely dead by now. :iwannago:

Sometimes it's like the universe is against things being done right when it comes to Britney's career  :crying1:

It definitely has to be a single :bigtime:

Btw, he said Britney wanted to recreate some of her favorite songs, does that mean she's planning to do more covers for B9?

Great interview. I don't mind the bridge or the vocoder. I think they make the song different from the original and more special.

I do want an alternative vocoder-free version too though!!!

No, the bridge fits the song well. To me, it's a part of the song I like.
