After 2007's critically-acclaimed "Overtones," Just Jack (aka Jack Allsop) has quietly returned with "Doctor, Doctor," the second single from his upcoming new LP, "All Night Cinema." (Check out my interview with Jack after he recorded with Kylie Minogue in 2007.)
The song is a signature Just Jack production with his colloquial, sing-talk delivery and sharp-tongued, lyrical wit. In a recent interview, Jack explains that the song is about a shop assistant who falls in his love with his foxy manager who ignores his flirtations. He sings, "Now why you looking at me like I’m making this up. And why you looking at me like I’m floaty and hinged. Like I’m a little bit singed after a JD and Prozac binge. (. . . ) She’s not much verse, mostly chorus. Between those ears, mostly sawdust."
French electro maestro Fred Falke took on the original and turned it a glistening synth experience . Everything Falke touches these days turns it disco gold. This one is absolutely no exception. His remix of "Doctor, Doctor" is sublime. Absolutey sublime.
