Song of the day: Prince & the Revolution- 1999

In 1982, Prince delivered his first international hit single. It came from the album with the same name, 1999. The song was recorded with three members of the Revolution, originally as a harmony, but later it was decided to pull these apart and start each verse with another member. The song itself is made using the riff from Monday Monday (Mamas and the Papas) and the verse melody of Manic Monday (Bangles). The song reached number 2 in the UK and number 12 in the normal US chart, though it was number 1 in the club tracks chart. Enjoy

Song of the day: Shaft- (Mucho Mambo) Sway

Shaft+-+(Mucho+Mambo)+Sway

Today we have to go back a long time to find the roots of the song of the day. We end up in 1953, when a Mexican instrumental song is released. It’s a mambo song, so that makes it sound like the summer. Dean Martin took this song in 1954, which was translated in English for him and it was given the title Sway, which was the translation of the Mexican title. Then the song went on, was covered and remixed, for example by the Pussycat Dolls, Michael Bublé, Cliff Richard and Jennifer Lopez. And that are only a few of them. One version, a remix, became a big hit for Shaft. It would be their biggest hit. And therefore, I would say: enjoy

This is the last song of the nineties! But okay, then it has to be dance. Soft dance, we can say. But it makes you happy. And I found out that she only made TWO albums! Why? She’s a great singer, especially in the eurodance! Enjoy
