Song For Barbara Payton – The Avalanches (Devious Corporation Mix) To build a cathedral of tragedy around such a short and sparse little song was quite a challenge, but I loved the original so much that I sat down and moved the mountain. Launching the song in a rocket, we collided with choirs, The Three Degrees and Lou Reed on the way to what must have been the planet Pet Shop Boys.
