I spent some time in the car this weekend for a race that was about an hour and 40 minutes from where I live. I always have the radio on so that's lots of music time. I noticed Pitbull infuses tunes from old songs to spice up his own hip hop songs. Music provides memories. I hear a tune and it takes me back to another time in my life. So when an artist remakes a song or includes a familiar tune, I usually enjoy the different sound. This week for Music Monday's freebie, I decided to pick some of my favorite remakes or remixes. Who can forget Vanilla Ice's Ice Ice Baby set to the sound of Queen's Under Pressure...but I won't subject you to that today. Here are some others you might not know.
My first choice is Alien Ant Farm's remake of Michael Jackson's Smooth Criminal. I actually like the Alien Ant Farm version better. It has a beat that makes me want to move!
Here's Pearl Jam's Last Kiss. I knew the version recorded by J Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers.
Seether's Careless Whisper, originally performed by Wham.
Then we have Pitbull who infuses old sounds into his hip hop music. Here is Back In Time with remade pieces from Dirty Dancing's Love is Strange.
Pitbull also has Feel This Moment which sounds similar to a-ha's Take On Me.
What music moves you? Do you have a favorite remake or remix?
