Today's Song: El Perro Del Mar "Walk On By (Saint Etienne Remix)"S

In veteran synth-pop act Saint Etienne's icy spin on El Perro Del Mar's "Walk on By," there are two explicit references: the track interpolates a refrain of Massive Attack's perfect 1991 single "Unfinished Sympathy" and there are snatches of Dorian Corey's era-defining speech that concludes Paris Is Burning ("If you shoot an arrow and it goes real high, hooray for you"). For sheer rarity, the Massive Attack reference is a little more knowing/unexpected — I feel like so many tracks work in Paris Is Burning samples. Yet, there's always room for Dorian. Her wisdom was so vast it continues to resound.
