Dancing DJs Vs Roxette
Released: 25th July 2005.
It's so easy to take an old song and turn it into something new. Sometimes the results can be pretty good (e.g. DJ Sammy's remake of "The Boys Of Summer"), but often they're not. In this case, the Friday Night Posse duo are calling themselves 'Dancing DJs' in order to remake the gorgeous Roxette hit "Fading Like A Flower". Though I expected to hate it, I was puzzled when found myself tapping along to it. It's not as good as the original, but for dance covers, it's not bad at all. Best to just think of it as a remix of Roxette's song.
Seems Roxette dance covers are all the rage right now, with Eric Prydz rumoured to be releasing his version of "Fading Like A Flower" and a Swedish one of "Listen To Your Heart" tearing up dancefloors across the Atlantic. This Dancing DJs song is certainly one of the gems of the new 'movement'. Time will tell if it gets the success it deserves, but either way, I think it's a dance classic.
