Song of the Day: Kathy Sledge featuring Adam Barta - "Give Yourself Up"

By April 29, 2011

Follow me on:

Its like getting ready to be married.. something classic, something new, something borrowed. Legendary dance diva Kathy Sledge ("We Are Family" with the Sledge Sisters, "Freedom," "Another Star," "Take Me Back to Love Again") teams up with up and coming artist Adam Barta on this europop record. Produced by Mr Mig with Mike Rizzo, the hook of the track bares a striking resemblance to another song which I just can't place - maybe Black Rock's "Blue Water?" The harmonizing of the two singers is a unique element that you don't hear on many dance records - the two share lead parts and add depth as background singers to each other. They complete rather than compete and make each other sound better. The groovy vibes and up-for-it lyrics make this a wonderful summery dance song for your next beach party.

I don’t really listen to this type of music, but I just saw the video (at TMZ.com) and it was friggin Hilarious. And the song itself is actually Quite Good!
Sure, it’s a little cheesy, but it’s also fun, sweet, and totally catchy.
Excellent production and vocals too.

I hope it catches on.
