Why's it part of the "Rome, Italian Style" playlist?: The original version of "Utopia" sampled one of Ennio Morricone's Sicilian Clan score cues, but even without that sample, the ethereal New Ears Mix of "Utopia" maintains the original's Morricone-esque feel. Alison Goldfrapp's mostly wordless vocals totally channel Edda Dell'Orso in this version. The New Ears Mix would make for a great opening title theme for a scripted show about parapsychologists or Dark Shadows-esque, non-wimpy vampires or something. In fact, when I wrote a brief treatment for an idea for a paranormal drama set in Amityville, New York, one of my notes said, "The opening theme should be Goldfrapp's 'Utopia (New Ears Mix),' from Café Del Mar, Vol. 8."
