Life throws curveballs, and relationships are no exception. After a 14-year journey with Rick, we’ve decided to part ways. It’s a challenging moment, yes, but it’s led to something emotionally raw yet cathartic: a compilation of early break-up dance classics. Party Favorz offers this unique set to accompany the myriad feelings a break-up evokes—be it sadness, anger, regret, or even empowerment.
Given the life transitions, including a move away from Atlanta, pardon the somewhat less polished mix set this time around. Despite this, I’m convinced that the collection will resonate with many of you, perhaps even offering a semblance of solace. This one’s filed under our beloved Backspin category.
Now, let’s delve into this stirring collection of songs that capture the complexities of ending a relationship. The Groovefunkel New Disco remix of Gloria Gaynor’s seminal “I Will Survive” transforms this gay anthem of empowerment into a dance-floor-ready battle cry. Another standout is Mariah Carey’s “We Belong Together,” presented here in the Atlantic Soul Vocal Remix. This version adds a danceable twist to Mariah’s poignant lyrics about love and loss.
Toni Braxton’s soul-wrenching “Un-Break My Heart” finds a new context in the Franktidrama Mix, while Amy Winehouse’s “Tears Dry On Their Own” offers a fresh perspective via the Alix Alvarez Sole Channel Mix. Celine Dion’s “All By Myself,” remixed by Tracy Young, and Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” in the Hex Hector remix, add layers of emotional depth to these early break-up dance classics.
For a modern touch, Beyonce’s “Irreplaceable” receives the Ralphi & Craig remix, weaving a tale of assertiveness amidst sorrow. Further, Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” is transformed into a house epic by the Downtown London remix, adding sonic dimensions to the grief and anger the original so perfectly encapsulates.
Alice Deejay’s “Better Off Alone,” Rihanna’s “Love The Way You Lie” remixed by the Italian Dandies, and Pink’s “Please Don’t Leave Me” in the Digital Dog remix also find their way into this cathartic dance set. Each track serves as a pillar of solace, standing strong amidst the chaos of human emotions.
As I embark on a new chapter in my life, it’s uncertain how soon Party Favorz will be back in full swing. However, rest assured that our mission to bring rhythm and beats to life’s ups and downs remains steadfast. Until the next time…ENJOY!
Rick and I moved back in together at the beginning of 2016 starting a new chapters in our lives. It’s now 2023 and we’re still together and plan on marrying soon. Thanks to all the Party Favorz followers for your well-wishes. You are the lifeblood that keeps this podcast running.
