Mercan Puts The Needle On Dannii

Mercan is officially my new favourite diva. Not only does she have a name that sounds suspiciously like a pubic wig, the hot mess has just unveiled a stunning cover of Dannii's 2002 international smash hit "Put The Needle On It" - in Turkish! Despite minutes of painstaking research, Mercan remains a total mystery to me. I have no idea if she's a superstar or complete nobody in her homeland but if "Sana Değil Kardeşine" is any indication, the platinum blonde goddess deserves to be bigger than Beyoncé. Her version is as slinky and slutty as the original, while her ability to dress like an even less feminine Lady GaGa is quite an achievement. You just know Dannii got her vibe on when she saw Mercan dolled up in that feathered monstrosity! Watching this masterpiece makes me miss the "Neon Nights" era even more than usual. How could the Queen of clubs go from making decade defining hits like "Put The Needle On It" to churning out butchered club instrumentals that would Kelly Llorenna hang her head in shame? I guess that's a question for another day but hopefully this Turkish tribute inspires Dannii to reach for new heights when she finally returns to the studio. A big thanks to Diva Incarnate for bringing Mercan to my attention!

Almost as stunning as the Czech covers of The Lesser Talented and Beautiful Minogue's Like A Drug and In My Arms!
In all seriousness, though. The production on the track is actually really good and the video looks quite polished (better than Perfection and ICSAN at the very least).

That is so terrible I want to buy a 12" Picture Disc complete with "sexy" photograph, Extended Version and a "sex vocal" mix!

I've used a website to translate Mercan's filth back into English ready for Dannii to score another #1 club hit whenever she feels like it.

I think it's hilarious that some fashion-forward lesbian is showing Dannii how it's done - the video will hopefully coach Dannii back on track.
