Old songs, particularly the good ones, have a way of hanging around. Catchy "hooks" become the basis for a whole new song, as you'll hear in several of these tracks. Then again, the original versions of other were so popular, or so tapped into the zeitgeist, they've become ingrained in every generation to come after them. And then there are the classics, the songs we've been singing for decades, so they remain a part of the current consciousness, but unless given a "freshening," would be unpalatable on a club floor. It's the cycle of things; songs come, songs go, and some songs come back for a second, third, fourth, and more, round.
In this go round, you'll find songs from George Michael; LIPPS, Inc.; Chic; Mike Oldfield (a name you may never have expected to hear in conjunction with a dance set); Faithless, Darude, Georgio Moroder, Stars on 45 (Yes! Stars on 45, can you believe it?); the Michael Zager Band; Everything But the Girl; Diana Ross; Aretha Franklin, and even Elvis. As I picked these tracks, I kept smiling and flashing back to the first time I'd heard them (yeah, I'm that old). It's been a fun walk down memory lane for me, and an even more fun notion thinking of how I'll drop each of these into a live set. Why? Well, not only because I can, but really, because they're that good and that fun!
So, here you go, a collection of new remixes of some great songs dating back over the past 30 years, proving once again, that Everything Old is New Again!
