These last few days heard this song on pandora by Scooter, a German techno band doing a remake of one of my fav Tracy Huang songs from 1980. I thought he sucked tho honestly, the minnie mouse singing was better then his gawdawful rap shitzle. And i thought its so typical of non english speaking DJ acting all cool and shit and not being able to speak english. When he said "its weekend" . I was thinking. Now it should be "its THE weekend" and not "its weekend" and brought to my mind how euro dance is still gonna be euro crap if the english aint at least correct man.
Anyway, my mistake because the song is actually called WEEKEND. The jokes on me.
Anyhow, judge for yourself. Heres Scooter and his cover of WEEKEND by the Dutch band Earth and Fire (a take off of Earth , Wind and Fire? The American band)\http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2zrQWTCx64
( really think he sucks big tho, sorry)
And heres the Tracy Huang version i liked a whole lot back in 80 . Also partly cuz shes sounds exactly like one of my girlfriends back then. But her version is really a straight copy rather then a cover of the original, with all the same intonations etc. Shes got to lose those gawdawful back up dancers tho. a big UGH there.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krQ5SYeXr0c
And heres the Dutch original . This gal went on to become quite well known and even a playboy mate. Her song was the groups biggest hit and hit number one in a few countries in 79.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sizoVrh_ ... re=related
I like her little dance. Performances were sure simple back then. Shes not singing tho. Lip syncing even back then.
