Free Download: Feist "1234" (Van She Remix)


Australian synth-rockers Van She have remixed Feist's new single "1234" that will be released in the U.K. on July 23. "1234" is one of my favorites tracks on Feist's new album "The Reminder." It shines in lo-fi simplicity with its rising strings, group harmonies and, yes, even a horn section and banjo.

The song makes a statement about growing up and taking love seriously. Feist sings, "1234, tell me that you love me more. Sleepless long nights that is what my youth was for. For the teenage boys. They're breaking your heart." Hey, no more head games, mister.

Van She adds some teeth to Feist's reflections in this accomplished electro revamp that evolves from smooth to gritty. Download it today. Guilt-free. (And make sure to watch the kaleidoscopic video for "1234" as well.)

That was really, really awful. What a way to butcher up a great song.

I disagree, the remix is really top drawer. Love both this and the original. The video is the best promo i've seen in a long, long time - Patrick Daughters is a genius.

this sounds brilliant!

i think it's really interesting...i guess you'd have to approach it a bit more openly.
i also really like this kind of thing...i like originals, but i love it when an artist rips up a song and really has fun with it. i do that with a few songs i think could really sound good.

The orginal was so sweet and innocent. The above download is more of the techno pop crap. sry Still a Feist fan your music is fresh and sweet and is much needed in today's world.

hmmm.... well its just depends on how open you are to new music & different versions. in my opinion it was worthy effort. i love hearing remixes or extended versions or covers of songs! and in my opinion this was great. not brilliant, but great!

As most songs, the original defeats the remakes.
Any chance you know where i can get the original?

OMG! gr8 remix luv it. how do u get it?!

Posted by: Tom at Dec 16, 2007 2:25:04 AM

Obviously not electro fans.
The original is soo slow and boring...this is an awesome remix that adds so much more meaning to the vocals.
Awesome electro.

Posted by: Guy at Dec 21, 2007 5:14:08 AM

the remix just doesn't fit the tune or rhythm of the vocals... it gets better as it goes on, but overall its horrible!

Posted by: Rose at Dec 31, 2007 6:40:52 AM

i really like electronic artists (daft punk, dntel) and i LOVE feist... and i LOVE this remix! the structural integrity of feist's song remains, while van she juxtaposes their flavor and beat. that's what a remix is all about.

i understand all those who dislike this mix don't like anything electronica--i can only wish you can pardon the rest of us who do.
