Party Favorz is hitting the airwaves again with Volume 2 of our Fall Throwback series, loaded with remixed songs from the 80s. Sure, we’ve sprinkled in a few gems from the late 70s, but the spotlight is mainly on the 80s. Let’s jump into it.
Opening with a Bang: “Driver’s Seat”
Kicking off the set is “Driver’s Seat,” a 1979 classic from Sniff ‘n’ the Tears. Block & Crown bring it to 2021 with their House remix. It’s a tune that has graced numerous commercials and TV shows. Although it peaked at only #15 on the U.S. charts, many of this remember this earworm fondly.
Unexpected Remixes: “Sultans of Swing”
One delightful surprise here is Block & Crown’s fresh take on Dire Straits’ 1979 mega-hit “Sultans of Swing.” They titled their version “Swingin Sultan,” and it’s a beauty. This remix stays loyal to the original while adding a modern twist, making it a perfect throwback.
Rock Classics Reimagined
Speaking of rock, we’ve got more. The Knack’s 1979 hit “My Sharona” gets a Funky House twist, thanks to Grooveband and Ghostmasters. Block & Crown also rework Ram Jam’s rock staple “Black Betty,” ensuring that these remixed songs from the 80s and late 70s keep the dance floor buzzing.
Disco Gurls on Tina Turner’s “The Best”
Disco Gurls dazzle us with their modernization of Tina Turner’s anthem “The Best.” Titled “U’re Simply The Best,” it preserves the original’s spirit while injecting it with a new groove. If only this had been available for our Tina Tribute set.
A Smorgasbord of Modern Takes on 80s Classics
For those craving more, we’ve got a plethora of modern remixes your 80s-loving heart will adore. From “Should I Stay or Should I Go” by The Clash to “Hungry Eyes” by Eric Carmen, we’ve covered it all. Others like “One Night in Bangkok” by Murray Head and “Your Love” by The Outfield get their much-deserved spotlight.
Although about half of these tracks feature the original vocals, the rest utilize talented soundalike artists. But don’t let that sway you! These remixed songs from the 80s and a few from the late 70s offer a fresh, nostalgic journey worth taking. A couple of mashups even make an appearance, adding extra flavor.
Whether you grew up in this era or are a fan looking to discover these classics, this throwback set is a treasure. Stay tuned for our Fall Edition 2023, which will be dropping soon, along with new episodes of Peak Hour and Club Fusion.
Until the next time…ENJOY!
