What a fun Music Monday this is going to be! This week’s theme is remakes. Now we are talking because this is sort of my wheel house. I love remixes, samples and remakes. However the remake doesn’t always beat out the original. This is a very small list because honestly I could find many of them to compare. I’m going to let you decide out of these three that I have chosen to share.
Are these remakes better than the original?
You have to let me know what you think in the comments. I’m curious to see what you think.
Let’s start out with Roller Coaster of Love. The original is by The Ohio Players.
The remake of Roller Coaster of Love was sang by The Red Hot Chili Peppers.
The beginning starts off strong but then they sort of lose me with the nonsensical jibber jabber. lol – Sorry but I’m gonna give this one to The Ohio Players.
Next up is Drive by The Cars.
I’m a die hard fan. Growing up with two older brothers I was introduced to a LOT of bands at an early age.
The remake of Drive is by The Deftones.
Hands down this has to go to The Deftones. I was a bit shocked myself but I really enjoyed the way they slowed it down. I love the sound and I think they knocked this one out of the park.
My last remake for you is I Feel Love by Donna Summer.
She’s a disco legend I know. This was a pretty amazing rhythm when it was first released.
The Blue Man Group put their percussion twist to it and added Venus Hum.
I really like the way they super charged this song! Venus Hum did a great job. It’s a hard choice to make but for me I’m going with the remake just because I favor the percussion so much.
Now it’s your turn! Tell me what you think and I’m super excited to see what my fellow music lovers came up with for this week’s theme.
