Well that didn’t work at all

It was my hope that a mash up of Pop Will Eat Itself’s 1989 gem “Can U Dig It?” (video) and Clint Mansell’s “Lux Æterna” (music) from the “Requiem for a Dream” soundtrack would have been charming as heck. I was mistaken. Sometimes, mixing two unlike things can be interesting and even illuminating. Sometimes, it just doesn’t work.

Fortunately, both of these things are marvelous on their own, so I’ll just give them to you separately.

“Can U Dig It?” by Pop Will Eat Itself:

“Lux Æterna” by Clint Mansell:

P.S. Mr. Mansell was the singer for PWEI, which is why I thought it would be so clever. Kind of an important bit of information to leave out, huh?
