Fatboy Slim and David Byrne feat. Charmaine Clamor – Walk like a woman

This is taken from Here lies love,  a concept album made in collaboration between Fatboy Slim and David Byrne (of Talking Heads). The album charts the rise and fall of Imelda Marcos,  who was first lady of the Phillipines. As I previously mentioned, I am a sucker for songs that double as history lessons or more generally ones that have an interesting concept that makes me think.

The whole album is really stimulating and great in places. It is kind of an opera rapped up in sultry disco beats and features lots of great guest vocals, such as the one here from Charmaine Clamor.
