PJ's song of the day - Bittersweet Radio edit (with an audio snippet)

So.. erm.. as anticipated, the radio edit is similar to the club mix that premeired on Gaydar Radio. But...
Kau: Is that out-of-this-world Eurythmics meets Depeche Mode synth on the radio edit too?
Mr. PJ: Hello. It's there, sort of, but in the background of the verses rather than as a 'prominent riff'.
However, you can hear prominent whispering in the chorus now, which i find quite sexy in a song. I can only compare it to the "ooooh"'s in New York City Lights somewhere towards the end of the song.

After being on the PJ Almighty for what seemed like forever, it has finally become the song of the day! Yay! Listen to the clip on PopJustice:

Thank you Mr. PJ!

Oh and here's what he had to say about the song:
This is a song so completely above-average that just thirty seconds will leave you holding your head in your hands while softly sobbing "why? WHY? WHY IS THIS SONG SO AMAZING? HOW, HAVING BEEN GRANTED THIS SMALL GLIMPSE INTO THE WORLD OF THE NEARLY-PERFECT POP TUNE, WILL I EVER BE ABLE TO LISTEN TO ANOTHER SONG EVER AGAIN? DAMN YOU SOPHIE ELLIS-BEXTOR. DAMN YOU 'BIFF AND THE FREEMASONS'. DAMN YOU FASCINATION RECORDS. DAMN YOU ALL TO HELL'.
And then, of course, you'll have a bit of a cup of tea, maybe listen to 'Bad Romance' a few times and gradually you'll start to calm down but let's be honest here, 'Bittersweet' is pretty much the complete opposite of a crap pop record.
WELCOME BACK SOPHIE.


It so totally beats Bad Romance, but whatever!

hehe am glad we're having updates more often now!
Well I dont expect the radio edit to be very different from the one that has been played on gaydar radio, I guess it will be just shorter since it's for radio and for the synth sound, am not sure it will be frequent, just once or maximum twice during the song!
It surely is an awesome pop song and tops bad romance. I like Lady Gaga but you know, once I saw a clip of an interview that she did once in some asian country, and it was unedited, it shows you that lady gaga is the one who choses which questions to answer and which ones to be removed, it totally shows during the interview and after that clip, i felt that she's fake sort of. She just gives this idea of being a crazy cold fashionista pop singer. She is talented but come on, the media is soooooo making her famous! If sophie had just a bit of the media attention that Gaga is getting, Sophie will be everywhere!

Wow!!!! The only word I can say is WOW!!!! "Bittersweet" is totally a masterpiece, the best song of 2010, and one of the best songs of this new decade!! Sophie has nailed it once again, & she's gonna have an incredible success with "Bittersweet", I know it!! ^^ It's the best thing I've ever heard in sometime.
Sophie to the TOP!!!! :D

Ok here's the thing you guys, slagging off another artist does not make anyone like the artist you're defending more; if anything you just gain more haters in Ellis-Bextor's camp.

Bad Romance and Bittersweet are both really amazing songs that are just way above the usual stuff artists put out. I hope Bittersweet does well and really brings Sophie back into the limelight, she hasn't been super-popular since her Read My Lips days.
