remakes, rethinks, homages, ripoffs and such

I guess the writer of this song (Paul Weller) may have been

"inspired" by World Column's "So Is The Sun" -

recent topic led to hearing this again

how about a 'run for a week' topic on northern remakes, rethinks, homages, ripoffs and such...

any spring to mind...?

 

revisit this topic

a homage?

A homage

 

Featured in Clash mag

 

Out now, it pays homage to the rare black American sounds that lit up iconic Northern Soul venues such as Wigan Casino or The Torch.

Reminiscent of the Style Council in its sophisticated fusion of sounds, 'Think' is a real triumph.

“It’s a cautionary tale,” says guitarist and vocalist Kris Smith. “It’s about avoiding conflict and reminding yourself not to make things difficult at everyone’s expense.”

Directed by Luke Farley, the video follows a solitary dancer as she expresses herself in London venue Moth Club.

Baby Ford - Wigan

say its a homage, from the late 80s but sounds better now than you'd think it would...      maybe 🤔😀

 

I was a university in London with baby Ford's girlfriend at the time he cut this. think he was from Wigan and had been a few times. He even came to the 100 club a few times.

.... had to rack my brain on this one ... but of course the backing is from Robert Parker - I Caught You In A Lie!  for anyone else struggling to place it.

Erm since you asked it was produced by Kevin Anthony Roberts and mixed by Mr Ian Levine 😁  this successful duo also did Got To Have Your Love with Velvette and also worked on The Next In Line Eric Roberts, In Orbit Yvonne Gidden and You Didn't Say A Word Shirley Lewis, go check em out you'll have hours of fun!
