2018-05-15: (There's) Always Something There to Remind Me (Naked Eyes, 1983)

More popular covers week:

Written in the 1960s by songwriting team Burt Bacharach and Hal David, "(There's) Always Something There to Remind Me" was first recorded as a demo by Dionne Warwick in 1963, then charted for Lou Johnson in 1964.





British synthpop duo Naked Eyes then took the song to #8 in the US with their 1983 version, which also had the honor of introducing most pop music enthusiasts to the emerging monolith of digital sampling technology. Other less obvious uses of the tech had been used in previous charting songs, such as "She Blinded Me With Science" by Thomas Dolby, but none were quite so obvious or distinct.

2018-05-14: Tainted Love (Soft Cell, 1981)

A couple weeks ago, we had neo's unexpected covers week, so this week it's covers that were more popular than the originals.


Originally recorded by Gloria Jones in 1964. Extended version includes "Where Did Our Love Go," originally recorded by the Supremes, also in 1964.


2018-05-06: If I can mostly ignore Bono’s political stuff, I guess I can mostly ignore theirs, too.
