It may come as a shock, but Cher’s dance floor smash “Song For The Lonely” was released in 2002. If the Believe album crafted a whole new era for Cher, “Song For The Lonely” (from the follow up album to Believe, which was titled Living Proof) solidified the fact that this multi-faceted artist truly could do anything, including bring the boys back to the dance floor after decades in the game
As material from these two albums become classics of a certain era in their own right, this also means that they’re poised for a rebirth. Thankfully, the brilliant talents of Philippines based Toy Armada are on hand to breath a new life into “Song For the Lonely” (with free download included)!
Cher’s vocals are immediately recognizable, and the BPM is amped up just enough to give the track an entirely different vibe. Some heavy drums throughout the verses, and drops during the vocals let the anthemic chorus stand on it’s own, which has always been a signature of both the track’s and Cher’s success. The bridge is one of most brilliant parts of the remix, complete with an unexpected, yet brilliant addition of some keyboard work, giving the track the 2019 rebirth it needed.
