The Manny Lehman mixes are not so hot.  I can live with the others.  I might buy a few.

I hope you don't mind too much the idea of messing with is song.  I wrote a vocal version that I'm hoping to get on the CD I'm working on.

Oooh Kirkmusic.  I would LOVE to hear your vocal version.  My favorite "made up vocals" for an instrumental song is "Am I The Same Girl?" by Swingout Sister, which is a vocal version of a famous standard jazz/pop 60s song.

My favorite mix of Breathe Me by Sia is by Ulrich Schnauss, i love his mixes, they are very atmospheric! My favorite wings mix, if i had to pick one, is the tony moran one. I had posted a link on the other boards to be able to download it, if people are interested i can post it here too (if that's allowed). I'd love to hear an extended mix of don't dream it's over too....
Speaking of Titanic, I actually think Tony Moran might have done a mix of celine's song way back when too....i have to check on that....

There was definitely a big ole mix of Celine "This song woulda been a hit no matter who sang it" Dion's Titanic Theme...

I don't recall if it was Tony or not but I played it a few times in its day.

I mean, ya just had to.  Titanic was ubiquitous.

Not that there's anything wrong with it...  I actually love that movie...  :)

You know guys, I remember that "Titanic" remix and I'm almost one hundred percent sure it wasn't Celine singing. They do that sometimes, have a studio vocalist sing on the track. Not sure why?

I have a remix of The Spice Girls (ducking!) with La Isla Bonita from Madonna, except it's not Madonna singing. It's some random spanish girl.

Hmm...

Paul,

With a huge song like My Heart Will Go On, what happens is they rush out the 'cover' version with some unknown disco dolly singin' it.

THEN the label wises up and gets out the real song as a remix too.

I have the faceless version and there IS also an actual dance version with Celine herself singing it.

And yes, ALL of Madonna gets covered eventually and yet all of the girl herself gets remixed too.   :)

Thank you for clearing that up for me Jimmy.

I'd kinda figured it was something like that, but nice to have it confirmed!

Yeah, there was a commercially released dance mix of MHWGO by what's-her-name.  I remember hearing the cheesy cover version, but you could tell with that song that it would just be a matter of time before the original ballad was made into a dance tune.  Here 'tis on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00000JO3X/qid=1144091957/sr=2-1/ref=pd_bbs_b_2_1/002-9831967-9663219?s=music&v=glance&n=5174  BTW, I'm digging the Mylo mix of Breathe Me, uses the strings part really nicely.
