My favorite song this moment

Scissor Sisters Kiss You Off 4 Music

Things are looking up for Scissor Sisters in their natve country; first week's sales of their new album Ta-Dah in the US was about 42,000 copies, in which they cracked the top twenty of the Billboard's album chart at #19. While it stills dwarfs in comparison to Europe (nearly 300,000 copies were sold in its first week in England), it's a definte improvement to their first album, which only got to #102 on that same US Billboard charts. It's even more amazing considering the Transworld stores like FYE and Sam Goody's still won't carry the album for petty reasons, and also that radio airplay for the band here in America is an uphill battle (it sounds quite eccentric in comparison to the other American chart fare that gets played).

To celebrate I thought I'd show a clip of them performing "Kiss You Off" on 4 music in Europe. Here Ana Mantronic sings lead vocal and displays the right attitude. Donna Summer or Deborah Harry would have killed for a song like this. Not only it's my favorite songs from Ta-Dah, it's my favorite song of this moment.

i just got my deluxe edition of Ta-Dah off Amazon for the same price as the regular one! the packaging is fun, though a bit hard to open, and the bonus disc with the extra tracks is very exciting!
