Ellis-Bextor, Sophie : Get Over You

In the red corner, Kylie. And in the blue corner, for this tabloid newspaper sponsored head to head of pop divas, Ms [a][/a]. Hand on hip, tongue in cheek, name like the head of special operations in a film about World War Two. And the tunes? Well, 'Get Over You' is a polite Euro disco take on an 'I Will Survive' sort of theme, sung, as ever with SEB, with the passion of someone submitting a request for additional stationary supplies. But this, of course, is her thing: it is still about as easy to imagine her saying "[I]better not kill the groove[/I]" as it is "[I]I love the smell of napalm in the morning[/I]", and herein lies the limited magic of this song.
