TOTD: Robyn – “Dancing On My Own (You&Me Remix)”
I remember standing in a crowded venue, screaming and singing along to a particular track. Robyn crafted the perfect anthem for the heartbroken. Those down on their luck were sure to find comfort in this epic number; it’s impossible not to express yourself when hearing this Body Talk song. To this day, whenever I hear those steady synths, I know I have to rage and cry/sing along to “Dancing On My Own.” The song itself was anthemic — it still is — and it provided a dose of pure pop that everyone needed. On its own, anyone could have fun with it.
Flash forward some odd years later, I occasionally jam out to the remixes of said song. The heartache felt in the disco number is intensified with the likes of Fred Falke and others remixing it. Recently, You&Me unveiled their production on this timeless beauty. Turning “Dancing On My Own” from an electropop tune to a bouncing progressive house track, it’s guaranteed to keep your mind busy as you dance along and forget about the heartache you’re going through.
The duo posted to Facebook that the progressive mix of Robyn’s 2010 song is just one part, with a second coming soon. As to what the second installment holds remains to be seen, or rather, heard in this case but coming from the SoundCloud description, the upcoming remix will be a stark contrast to the upbeat song we’ve received.
