It already has one the great diabolical riff driving the song and I could imagine the intensity would be amplified with an orchestra backing it. In fact the song seems made for the orchestra. I could easily hear strings, flutes and horn blaring those instrumental parts.
Hell I wouldn't mind an orchestrated version of the entire MTYCDT album. The songs have a thick enough arrangement to translate well orchestrated.
Other songs I would like to hear
Never turn your back on Mother Earth - it has a mellotron and harpsichord and so it's half way there
Rosebud - orchestra could bring out the mournful aspect of the song
Number one song in heaven - if lil Beethoven symbolises orchestrated techno music. Perhaps they should it bring it further and make an orchestrated arrangement out of a lot of their dance pop songs. Certainly the first half can easily be done due to it's dreariness but I'm sure the techno-esque second part of the song can be given a lil-beethoven esque vibe. Similarly I like to hear a Lil Beethoven version of tryouts , the title track if MTYCDT
Progress - cheesy synth strings swapped with an orchestra
So important - it's clear that I see the whole Sparks plus orchestra as a brilliant way to de-eightify their back catalogue. I certainly would like to hear the songs of Interior design heard in a different context
Moon over Kentucky - imagining "la la la" section over horns in the background. Orchestra can certainly bring out the creepiness of the song
Tits - I always imagine the bass opening the song and the piano riff being played by a string quartet so I think that would work with a full orchestra. The orchestra and easily bring out the desperation in the chorus.
Slowboat - if anything I just want Sparks to recognise the first album as it seems like only people in the WRC recognised it as a major album. Certainly the keyboard tingling sound in the middle plus guitar solo could work well in an orchestrated environment.
Calm before the storm - it already have horns there and it wouldn't take much to fully orchestrate that song
Thank god it's not Christmas - I have a lot of difficulty imagining Kimono My house with an orchestra with the exception of This Town (because of the string version on Plagiarism) and this song. Certainly the most epic vive and most densely arranged song in the album plus mellotron chorus could be easily translated. The song I'm interested in hearing the most in the concert
: That's cool i guess. but it's just one
: performance so not like I'll ever get to
: hear it unless they put out a live
