SONG OF THE DAY (SUNDAY FUNDAY): Paul Rudd ft Amanda Wilson – “Trust In Me”

It is often said that a great song transcends genre.  This is the reason why you often seen country songs become pop or dance records.  “Trust in Me,” by Paul Rudd and Amanda Wilson, is another great example – the emotionally scorching lyrics work perfectly as a ballad with sparse piano accompaniment and with a gorgeous eurodance pop confection. Amanda Wilson, known for her work with Freemasons and Samuele Sartinin (which became the Tim Berg/Avicii “Seek Bromance”) sounds incredible with her powerful, multiple-octave voice expressing the emotional desire of the song.  Much kudos to producer Paul Rudd who was able to work with such an powerful instrument (Amanda’s voice) and create two incredibly strong, unique versions – a ballad and a dance pop version.  Read the entry on “Something About You” for more about the importance of vocal production, of course, that is after you enjoy these two great versions of “Trust In Me.”
