Moroder: Britney's "Tom's Diner" Has Little Vocal Editing

Giorgio Moroder talks about Britney Spears’ “Tom’s Diner” cover.

His album titled “Déjà Vu” features collaborations from Sia (“Déjà Vu”), Charli XCX, Kylie Minogue (“Right Here Right Now”) and Britney, and the cover Britney chose to tackle, Suzanne Vega’s version of “Tom’s Diner,” leaked unexpectedly on Friday weeks ahead of its schedule release. That bump in the road didn’t stop Moroder from opening about the feature, who says it was Britney’s idea to cover it.

“She wanted to redo ‘Tom’s Diner’ — that was something she wanted to do — and she asked me if I was interested in producing it and having it on my album, and I loved the idea,” Moroder tells Yahoo Music. He adds it was important to keep the original vocals without much editing.

Duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh.

“I listened a lot to her latest songs, which were all a little… the voice was a little mechanical, too many effects on some, while on this one, she’s basically without,” he says. “A little delay, but no effects, no nothing, so it sounds really natural. I don’t think you could say immediately, ‘Oh, this is Britney,’ because she sounds so good on this song.”

Her cover lit up the Internet on Friday, hitting number one on Billboard’s Trending Chart as a result of trending world-wide on Twitter for most of the day. Rolling Stone claims “the reenergized cover of the Eighties classic makes the song even more sonically dynamic,” while Time says “all that studio magic does, in a way, amplify the themes of voyeurism and alienation that reportedly inspired Vega’s original track.”
