I can’t stand the rain

In honour of this week’s never ending rain, here are a few versions of the same song ‘I can’t stand the rain’, in chronological order, from the original, to the disco version, to the Turner version, to Missy’s version.

Here’s to sunshine, soon please.

Ann Peebles – I can’t stand the rain (the original track! in 1973)

Eruption’s Disco-phied Remake (1978)

Tina Turner’s version from Private Dancer (1984)

Missy Elliot’s ‘I can’t stand the rain (Supa Dupa Fly)’ released in 1997 and then again in 2007

‘Otherside’ Battle: Red Hot Chili Peppers vs. Ben l’Oncle Soul

Remember this track? ‘Otherside’ was one of the darkest tracks off RHCPs’ album ‘Californication’ (1999), even being called ‘Pumpkins-esque’.

 

It was covered by Ben l’Oncle Soul, a motown french jazz soulman… Needless to say, it sounds nothing like the original.

 

Which do you like best?

 

‘Come on let’s move it’ Battle: Special Ed vs Labba ft. 2011

1990’s track by Special Ed head to head with Labba (of Blahzay Blahzay) feat. 2011 new version of ‘Come on let’s move it’. The choice is easy for me… which do you prefer?
