Monday Night Epiphany

Recently, we've been kind of in love with listening to Sirius' online media player as opposed to doing our usual streaming of mp3's via Hype Machine.  This evening, Kelly decided to change it up from our usual Sirius XMU station to 1st Wave - where we've been enjoying some nice new wave jams, such as Echo and the Bunnymen, The Thompson Twins, The Smiths, Psychedelic Furs, etc. . .

So, when the jam "West End Girls" by The Pet Shop Boys started playing, it dawned on us that the synth driven stacatto like, almost rap-speak intermittent segments with singing on the chorus sounded mighty familiar to us.

[We racked our music brains and thus the epiphany occurred]

The truth had reared its ugly head - Flight of the Conchords quite obviously taken much inspiration from "West End Girls" for their "Inner City Pressure" track.

So be honest - is it just us???
