SONG OF THE DAY: Bob Sinclar – Le Manege
Here’s a quite wonderful mashup of styles cohesively fused into a unique club track. Starting with what sounds like the xylophones from the Bewitched TV show theme song and a hook not dissimilar to Tim Deluxe’s “It Just Won’t Do,” you really have no idea what to expect. Then the vocals start – Edith Piaf, France’s greatest star and national Diva, is sampled singing “Mon Manège à Moi.” The lyrics about a lover being a merry-go-round making her head dizzy couldn’t be a better description for a wonderfully wild night of clubbing. This leads up to the well-used sample “Everybody Put Your Hands In The Air” and the electro-tribal big room energy kicks things up further. What makes this track so memorable is how Bob Sinclar is able to meld all these varied elements together for a truly magical club anthem. This song is so special and different that it could go as viral as Yolanda Be Cool’s “We No Speak Americano.” The video is labelled as ‘Paris By Night,’ the title of his album released last year – but this song isn’t on there. If this is the first track from a sequel album, then we’ve found a great party soundtrack for Summer 2014.
