While on vacation a few months back, I heard a new version of Fleetwood Mac’s “Go Your Own Way”. It was by a group I’d never heard of called South Side Crew. That song easily became the greatest song of 2006 (in my world at least).
Now they’ve remade another 70’s classic - this time Foreigner’s “Cold As Ice”. And I actually prefer the new versions to the originals - probably because the 70’s really wasn’t my favorite decade for music. The 80’s was. And now a 90’s artist has just released a couple remakes from that decade. Remember Collage's "I'll Be Loving You"?
He (Adam Marano) is back with two 80's remakes. Rick Springfield’s “Jessie’s Girl” is given the dance treatment and sounds great. Bad English’s “When I See You Smile” is just bad - stick with the original version for that one.
Click on the artist links to go to the song clips. If you like the previews, you can also purchase them at that site. They’re mostly dance songs, so if you don’t like that type of music, you probably won’t like these.
If you’d prefer to stick with the originals from my favorite decade of music, listen to the 80’s At 8 every weeknight on Star 102.5!
