Same Difference's "Shine On Forever" Is Out Today, And You Need The Matt Pop Mix

If you thought British brother-sister duo Same Difference went the way of the vinyl-clad hooker at a bachelor party (i.e. down) after their 2008 debut album Pop, then you clearly didn't read Fizzy Pop's interview with them last year or check out the clip I posted of new SD song "Souled Out."

So now 2007 X Factor alums Sarah and Sean Smith are back with giddy single "Shine On Forever (Photo Frame)," which was released worldwide (yes—including the U.S.) today on iTunes and the Amazon MP3 store.

And let me just cut to the chase—if you don't at least go grab the "Matt Pop Mix," which sounds like Rick Astley grabbing Bananarama's asses while they're playing croquet with Mel & Kim, then you might as well relinquish your pop badge. Now. Hand it over.

Here's a bit more info on the choon, courtesy of Hit Factory Forum:
"As well as the track being recorded at Pete Waterman’s Open Studios, the single has more than its fair share of PWL connections… Produced by John Myers (who also produced [Same Difference's cover of] "Turn It Into Love" with Pete Waterman), was engineered by Pete Waterman Jnr, Mixed by Al Unsworth and mastered by Tom Parker (who also designed the artwork and edited the wonderful 7 minute Extended Mix).

"There is a limited CD single available also via SameDifferenceWorld.com featuring an exclusive b-side written and produced by IAN CURNOW & DAVE FORD."

And here's the music Video for "Shine On Forever (Photo Frame)":

It's never easy being cheesy.

    I can't believe I've deliberately avoiding these two - that remix is awesome (either in spite of or because of how 1989 it sounds).

    The remix is great, but it's the original version that really does it for me!

    There's a also a Thin Red Men remix, and Thin Red Men remixed That Sounds Good To Me, this year's UK eurovision entry, produced by PWL!

    thanks robbie for the referral-the download bundle also has a flip and fill radio and extended edit.

    and not to tangent this thread too far off track but speaking of cheesy goodness, was able to take an amazon download credit to download the wip remix of six's "there's a whole lotta love"....

    whatever happened to wip anyway?

    Undisco, avoid no longer! Their cover of Kylie's "Turn It Into Love" is kind of sublime.

    Peter, yeah, the extended mix of the original is a good one too.

    Cheremone, I caught that!

    Adolfo, I always assumed WIP were Topham/Twigg...? And once they departed the PWL stable, it was adios to that in-house production monicker...? Was very surprised to see Six's This Is It album is on U.S. iTunes, myself, a couple months back. I of course paid a bit for it on eBay a few years back.

    Wow! Sorry can't get past the horrible skinny jeans the guy is wearing. They can't even have a decent dance routine because his ass would hang out. Pull the damn things up. So sick of looking at people underwear, will this offal trend never go away of having your ass hang out. It also mankes the guys legs look like they are abnormally short.

    Speaking of Same Difference and "Turn It Into Love", I came across a different version of it on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mu1f3OOLT2k - who did this? This version should have been released, it's incredible!

    So, I don't actually believe this will work.
