Lady Gaga, ‘You and I’ Metronomy Remix – Song Review

Another British indie rock band has remixed Lady Gaga‘s ‘You and I.’ This time, it’s Metronomy, and we love their interpretation of the song as a futuristic, atmospheric tune.

Unlike the recent remix by Wild Beasts, which utilized very little of the original song, the Metronomy remix is built around Gaga’s entire vocal track, though her voice has been processed to give it an echoed, hollow feeling. The remix almost takes the song back to its roots, since it started out as a quiet piano ballad before the stomping drums, Mutt Lange vocals and Brian May guitar licks were added in.

After the chorus passes, Metronomy experiment with the line, “Baby, you and I,” layering the music with computerized recordings of each of the words. A drum beat appears during the second verse but doesn’t take away from the awesomely eerie vibe.

Following Gaga’s masculine performance of ‘You and I’ at Sunday’s VMAs, the song jumps to No. 16 on the singles chart this week. Metronomy’s latest album, ‘The English Riviera,’ is a contender for the 2011 Mercury Prize, a critics’ award for the best British album of the year. Also nominated are Adele, Tinie Tempah, and a host of indie rock acts.
