SONG OF THE DAY: Scooter and Vassy – Today

Vassy possesses such a special and unique voice that she can sing the most commercial pop song (“We Are Young”) or big room club jam (“Bad” with David Guetta and Showtek) and you would still know it’s her. Can you guess what kind of song she did with German hard dance icons Scooter? Yep, pounding commercial dance pop- but she manages to hold the focus even when HP Baxxter is doing his trademark screaming rap. The thing is, I kept expecting the disco hook from Patrick Hernandez’s “Born to Be Alive” to come in for some reason. After a few minutes, it hit me that parts of the rap are taken from “Discohopping” by Klubbheads, which sampled that classic disco hook. The video’s borderline offensive take on feminist revenge ranks up there with t.A.T.u.’s “All About Us.” On a lighter note, if you want to hear Vassy rework another classic house records, check out “Hustlin” with Crazibiza and Dave Aude which reworks Crystal Waters’ “Gypsy Woman”
