I became a Scissor Sisters fan when I heard their single Electrobix, the gay gayness anthem, which didn’t make it on the first album. Then, before their debut album was released, I discovered the demo album. It was very pop, had great synths, danceable beats. Some of the best dance tracks didn’t make it to the final release and I wondered why.
Two of my favourite demo songs are Someone To Touch and Step Aside For The Man. Did they sample the beats or was it their own programming? Only recently I found out that Step Aside For The Man samples So Many Men So Little Time by Miquel Brown (via). Can someone tell me if the Scissor Sisters used a sample for Someone To Touch?
Hurry, download the two songs and tell me. xoxo.
I just came back to the Scissor Sisters because the demo album is still the best.
I really tried to listen to their latest, Ta-Dah.

some beats of ‘someone to touch’ sound a bit like the beginning of depeche mode’s ‘people are people’. but maybe I’m wrong.
oh yes, it sounds a bit like people are people. it just has to be sampled.
