Fischerspooner vs. Scissor Sisters - "We Need A Filthy War"

DJ Earworm

(Exclusive) DJ Earworm has done it again! After the superb "No One Takes Your Freedom," the talented DJ and mash-up artist from San Francisco has created another excellent mix of some of his favorite tunes. To celebrate the release of Fischerspooner's "Odyssey" today, he has mixed up FS' protest song "We Need A War" with Scissor Sisters' "Filthy, Gorgeous" to give the original a little more edge.

"Susan Sontag's lyrics are so simple and powerful on Fischerspooner's 'We Need a War'." writes DJ Earworm in an email. "It's one of my favorite songs from their new album. From the Scissor Sisters' "Filthy Gorgeous", the Filthy part is highlighted and the Gorgeous is snipped out. This is war, after all."

To top it off, he adds some ingredients from Edwin Starr's "War" and Culture Club's "The War Song" to join in the battle cry, while Pet Shop Boys "It's a Sin" and Chemical Brothers' "Out of Control" provide critical commentary.

This is a mash-up to think about and to dance to. Just like the artists intended.
