Just discovered Swedish producer Oliver Nelson‘s rework of Whitney Houston classic (and one of my personal favorites) ‘How Will I Know.’ His nu-disco remix sounds like it could have appeared on the original maxi single. Listen below.
Recently formed Belgian duo Jetlag justsent over their latest offering, ’Every Woman’, it’s a delightful deep house track thatmakes good use of Whitney Houston‘s gorgeous ‘I’m Every Woman’ vocals. They’ve done a fantastic job, I can’t wait to hear more from these guys!
In tribute to Whitney Houston Icelandic synth pop masters Steed Lord have created this stylish edit of her version of the classic Thinking About You, which is found on her self titled debut album released back in 1985.
It’s one of my favorite Whitney numbers and they’ve really outdone themselves giving the track a glorious electro rework but keeping that beautiful vocal front and center.
There’s nothing like Whitney Houston‘s voice, is there?
Her version of gospel classic His Eye is On The Sparrow, from the upcoming movie Sparkle is flawless, and will forever be known as one of her very last recordings. Whitney delivered two songs for the soundtrack, including Celebrate with Jordin Sparks.
Whitney Houston collaborated with The Michael Zager Band on Life’s A Party, said to be her first on-record vocal from ’78. In this song you can hear Whitney’s distinctive voice sounding as pure and perfect as it often was as she belts out the lines “Lift your head up when life looks dreary, let your wishes climb to the sky.” Life’s a Party brings back memories of when Whitney was pop and R&B music’s sweetheart.
The song is a cute 70′s dance track with the highlight definitely being Whitney’s vocal, and if it was still 1978 you could predict she was destined for stardom! With just two lines in Life’s A Party you can feel the inspiration & affection that would come years later in such hits as Greatest Love Of All, One Moment In Time and Miracle, along with the joyful fun times of How Will I Know and I’m Your Baby Tonight!
Life’s a Party is available on Dance Collection. Take a listen and let us know what you think in the comments below!
In the days since Whitney Houston’s untimely death lots of musical tributes have been popping up, and while I find myself largely ignoring them and turning to her outstanding original back catalogue, but this mash-up of Chromeo‘s When The Night Falls and the Whitney classic How Will I Know created by The Hood Internet is too good to ignore!
