It Wont Work Out (Dance Mix) - Unreleased

The second episode of "Australia's Got Talented" was even more tragic than the first! I'm seriously in love with the show and Dannii's attention seeking antics. Dannii looked amazing again this week, wearing an alluring scarf wrapped around her head. Very Norma Desmond! The highlight for me was Dannii's withering response to the crazy guy who played "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" on a vacuum cleaner. That's classy television in anyone's language! I guess, I should get back to the music.

A wonderful thing happened late last year, when several songs from the "Neon Nights" sessions finally started to leak. "It Won't Work Out" should be instantly familiar to anyone who owns a copy of "Neon Nights", which I assume is all of you! It's the mid-tempo electro ballad that, in my opinion, does not quite gel with the rest of the album. The song is lovely and often cited as a fan favourite but it just seems a bit out of place. I think the leaked dance mix would have been a much better fit. I'd be interested to know if the song began as a ballad or an uptempo number. I like them both but I prefer the fast version. An acoustic version of the song was part of the scrapped "Platinum Collection" tracklisting. Hopefully, it will turn up eventually. I'd love to hear it.

It began as a dance version. :)

That makes sense. The dance version is less stilted. I guess Dannii just wanted a change of pace of the album.

I prefer the dance version too - and even though I like the song I can't believe that it was set to be the last single off Neon Nights! I'm kind of glad it wasn't released, as it would've been a flop of "I Don't Wanna Take This Pain"-esqe portportions!

I prefer the NN album version to be honset - though it needed a killer remix: something like the Hex Hector Mix of J Lo's Waiting For Tonight / Una Noche Mas.
