The Contessa's Party: Dancing With B

Thorne: Dancing With B After a wonderfully positive response to the Contessa by the New York dance community, we decided to make a collection of club mixes. The first issue is of Dancing With B. Noted New York remixer Norty Cotto contributes three mixes, and Thorne adds another three, each in radically differing styles. The CD (right) runs for over 70 minutes for just $9 from CDBaby. The 12" vinyl (left) has Norty's two long mixes, but is no longer available. Thorne: Dancing With B

n dangerous places
The smell of suspense
It is making no sense as
I'm blind-jumping fences

Carnivorous chases
In small, scary places
Just what to believe
I don't know when to leave
Cos I'm dancing

I'm dancing, I'm dancing
I'm dancing with B
Who's teasing me, easing me, reaching for me
B's dancing with me
I'm dancing with B

My skin crawling crazy, O who might you be?

Wondering what to believe   And whose heart on whose sleeve?
Which one will deceive   And which web will we weave?

When we really should leave

Is it leather or lace?   That mask on your face
Expressions erased   With excitement to waste

As I'm dancing

I'm dancing, I'm dancing with B
Who's teasing me, easing me, reaching for me
B's dancing with me
I'm dancing with B

The night's going hazy, O who might you be?

Our demons of sound   Luck leaving the ground
Five fortunate feelings   More ways to fall down
With your breath on my neck   Your hand on my back
You more than make up for   Expressions you lack when


I’m dancing, I'm dancing, I'm dancing with B
Who's teasing me, easing me, reaching for me
B's dancing with me
I'm dancing with B

Imagining maybe, O who might be B?
