"If You're Gonna Play It Out Of Tune, Play It Out Of Tune Properly" pt 2
In today's hotly awaited instalement the Fall cover a song that when I first read what it was thought "it has to be a different song, no way are the Fall covering disco" but of course they were and it was magic.
Lost In Music was originally recorded by the grand daughters of the opera singer Viola Williams, Sister Sledge. The Sisters, as they were indeed four sisters took the Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards produced track to number 17 in the UK charts in 1979 and would be heard in discotheques the world over. On the b side is the best track the sisters recorded Thinking Of You, with one of the most identifiable intros ever.

The Fall covered it and I have to say, made the song their own in 1993 on the Infotainment Scan album. Possibly the finest cover version ever recorded.
