New York City is burning with the sound of these beats. Or at least it should be! Spring is finally here and this is your soundtrack. Ladyhawke starts us out with a fab new mix of Paris is Burning by Simmons & Christopher while Sainte Etienne return on track #2 with my favorite tune of the moment in Method of Modern Love. These two tunes were just meant to be together. You will be repeating these two I guarantee it. I certainly have.
Revenge of the 80's! I find myself enjoying some remakes again (see Sunrise After Dark) and have included three of them. Send Me an Angel was a huge 80's hit for me originally by Real Life and this version by Lovematic (D & F Mix) does not have a male vocal like the original but is still quite good (track #3). Blue Monday by Kurd Maverick (track #8) is another timeless 80's classic originally by New Order. Any 80's music fan has to have these two tunes. The third remake, This is Your Life, is from 90's band Banderas but remade by 80's group 7th Heaven! (track #11). Good stuff.
I consider the song Back in Your Head (Tiesto Remix) by Tegan & Sara to now be a classic (track #7). Tiesto did a great job with this. If you have never heard this tune then you should.
If you remember the huge hit song Rapture by iiO from back in 2001 then you know the voice of Nadia Ali. Her vocals meld wonderfully in Love Story with the energy mix by Andy Moors on track #9.
Each of the tunes on this set are stellar. Quite possibly one of my favorite sets. Enjoy!
Choice Lyric: "All of the boys and the girls here, in Paris. Sing to the night without sight, but with madness. I can't keep up, I'm a wreck, but I want it. Tell me the truth, is it love or just Paris?" - Paris is Burning by Ladyhawke (track #1)
