Track of the Day: Robyn – “Dancing On My Own (Fred Falke Remix)”
Robyn is one of my favorite singers who have this strange way of enchanting people with dance music and sad lyrics. I saw the Swedish sensation a few years ago and when “Dancing On My Own” was performed, everyone lost their mind. I can assure I was there crying and dancing and singing along when Robyn sang it, and even today I still feel some emotional resonance toward it. It’s a sad disco song, and the gay community has treated it as an anthem and it deserves every praise.
Bringing on Fred Falke to remix the disco song made it even better and somewhat sadder. What Falke did was turn this gem into one of his trademark remixes; from the lengthy intro where Robyn informs you of her solo dancing repeatedly to its three minute heartbreak ending. Unrequited love has never been more entertaining.
