Stream: Róisín Murphy Vs. Whitney Houston & Shep Pettibone - Overpowered and So Emotional
Twenty years apart Róisín Murphy and Whitney Houston released two absolute classics. 1987's So Emotional hit #1 in the US with its rock R&B feel and those iconic Whitney vocals. Written by Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly who also penned Like a Virgin for MDNA and True Colors for Cyndi Lauper it's a certified timeless classic, helped along by Sasha Velour's killer performance. Iconic producer Shep Pettibone's fabulous 1987 remix furthers the dance aspects of it and lifts it to a funky heaven of feel good nights filled to the brim with cocktails and hot company. Ró hit it big time with her masterpiece single & album Overpowered in 2007. We saw her live in concert the same week it came out and had already memorized all the lyrics to all new songs - so damn good. She gifted us with a commercial approach married with lyrics about chromosomes and oxy-toxins. Róisín Murphy 4-ever, truly! This bootleg mash-up by Fronkie Mc we cannot wait to dance to. The mix of these two iconic songs, cowbell, killer choruses and funky beat is tight and fun. A perfect way to start the weekend - enjoy!
