Viva La Vida/Domino Dancing

Song: Viva La Vida/Domino Dancing
Artist: Pet Shop Boys
Album: Christmas

In December the Pet Shop Boys are releasing a 5-track EP entitled simply "Christmas." It contains a cover of the Madness song "My Girl" (and a remix,) a re-worked version of their 1997 fan-club only holiday song "It Doesn't Often Snow at Christmas," a re-worked version of my favorite track off this year's album "Yes," "All Over the World," and lastly, a fan favorite from their most recent tour... a mash-up of their classic "Domino Dancing" with Coldplay's "Viva La Vida."

I re-fell in love with the Pet Shop Boys this year with "Yes," and hearing this cover immediately made me smile. And it was a reminder just how big, sweeping, and cool the Coldplay song was.
