SONG OF THE DAY (SUNDAY FUNDAY): EverYoung – “You Got Me”
A lot of the best pop music comes from the UK – Wanted, One Direction, Spice Girls, SClub – and the next pop group to watch for is EverYoung. Following in the mixed gender steps of Steps, the two boys and two girls met in school and have been performing the past two years. Their focus is on live vocal performances and writing/cowriting all of their own songs. Their debut single “You Got Me” is a shuffling piece of sugary pop with solid harmonies and enough hooks to catch anyone. For club consumption, the nu-garage (that’s the official name for the subgenre for the ’90s house flashback trend led by Disclosure and Prince Club) Boutique mix speeds up the vocals and has some fun mixing synth pop, classic NRG, and yes, old school house. Unfortunately, the remix and the song are nowhere to be found online as of yet, so please let this acapella performance of the chorus whet your appetite until the commercial release on October 2nd.
