I heard a remix of "In Yur Eyes" on a local radio station yesterday. Any one else hear a remix??
The whole story is pretty funny. I had won a pair of tickets to see BB King from the station and went to pick them up. While I was doing that, my daughter was taking a test for future employment (Hopefully). I was chatting with the receptionist at the radio station (actually there are about 15 Pittsburgh radio stations in the same building Clear Channel stations all of them) while we waited for the tickets to come from the appropriate station office. We talked about music (DUH!!!) and we discovered that she likes a lot of what I like. She LOVES PG too and a lot of the same African musicians I do. Her favorite PG song is "IYE". We talked for about half an hour and I decided I'd better get back to where my daughter was taking the test in case she finished early. As I pulled out of the station lot, what do you think came on the radio??? You got it!!! "IYE" was playing. She had given me her card so I called her and she screamed when I told her what was playing. Turns out it was one of their stations so she turned it on too. She was really nice and asked for some PG recommendations. I gave her a few and she was going to go home and download them that night.

you know what, I'm going to go out on a limb here and say I don't like either of the versions linked, the first one is so flat, theres not much life to the song and the second well where shall I begin? :-]

I REALLY like the SR-71 version. One of the few PG covers where someone bring something NEW to the song. I ran across that version a few years ago and listen to it all the time.
The Darren Hayes version does nothing for me however. Like so many others that just sound like a poor imitation of the real thing.
2 cents deposited?
