A record that may be classed as one of those many off the wall Northern misfits, has been given the 2003 treatment. The record which (so they say) got plays at the Wheel was Rubberneckin by Elvis Presley. It also got one (at least) spin by Dave Evison at Wigan Casino, after the effect it had on floor he said something like "well we used to dance to it at wheel" ( so says my memory)
Dug out a video link to hear/see what it sounds like and in my view....
its not bad in a 2003 mainstream popular style, not as good as that other remix imo, but defintly better than all the pop idol stuff.
(Anyone seen the itv advert for pop idol which rips off Corporate soul theme song).
And video is well done and worth a watch
trivia wise :
Mentioned when posted it up in forum another Northern link, Well points were on offer if you said that it featured in Elvis film "Change of habit" which also featured Barabara McNair as one of the nuns, didnt she also appear in Playboy later on, sure got a grainy scan somewhere
Theres also another Elvis track which has had plays, 5 points for the title?
(as with all trivia stuff, to go and actually check if details are correct takes the fun out of it for me, if feel wrong feel free to pass on, if have thumbed thru 99 mags, 3 databases, 6 websites, again feel free to pass on but ask if it was worth it:) )
Someone once stated that the trouble with 45s by artists such as Elvis, P J Proby, Tom Jones is that their voices were so instantly regonisable, that even if they had recorded the worlds best cover version of the worlds best soul track, it would still get slagged down. Yet a mediocre weak white 60s uk cover by some pure junior showtime artist would still be considered more credible by some. Anyone pass on whys that?
