El Mañana (Metronomy Remix)

Ask almost any Gorillaz fan for their Top 5 Least Favorite Remixes and you can bet that this remix by Metronomy will be on the list. Personally, I thought my teeth would blister the first time I heard it. But it’s not really that bad. There is just plenty of room for improvement. This song tries so hard, and it almost succeeds, but not quite. It adds the spookiness you’d expect in a Gorillaz song and mostly keeps the sorrowful tone present in the original. But the majority of the sorrow comes when you listen to it and mourn how good it could have been.
