Yoko Ono and the Pet Shop Boys Together

By  | 

I never dreamed that collaboration between the Pet Shop Boys and Yoko Ono would occur but it has in the form of the single “Walking on Thin Ice” which will be released May 12th. I have never been a big fan of Yoko Ono’s music, what little that I’ve heard, until I stumbled across “Walking on Thin Ice” a couple years back. It’s a great dance song and was originally released in 1981. It’s also special because it’s the last song that John Lennon worked on, contributing some funky guitar licks. John and Yoko actually finished the song the night of December 8th, 1980 and when they left the studio and drove home, John was killed outside the Dakota.

The Pet Shop Boys have remixed “Walking On Thin Ice” updating the sound and putting their signature on the underground hit that is already having great success at the clubs. Unfortunately, I haven’t heard it yet, but I’m confident that The Pet Shop Boys will make this great song even better.
