If you dig the new millennium disco fogging up windows in clubs across the country, you'll feel love for the Juan MacLean track "The Simple Life." The song luckily has nothing to do with Paris and her former BFF Nicole. Rather, it's a bit of Star Wars meets Donna Summer, a gorgeous track that beams subtle sonic lasers into your earholes to make sure you're paying attention. The single warms up the dancefloor with a purely (electronic) instrumental sound before getting all Human League with a female/male point/counterpoint on love disappearing into the stars. Check out the original song at Just Press Play or the M Worgull remix here.
