Promises In The Dark: Armin Van Buuren Ft Jacqueline Govaeart, Martina McBride With Pat Benatar and ASIA

“NEVER SAY NEVER”   ARMIN VAN BUUREN FT. Jacqueline Govaert

Trance love song that inspires you with the romantic lyrics and picks up your heart rate with a syncopated techno beat.   The beats remind me at times of Wham!   Jacqueline brings the right emotion to the lyrics and Dutch DJ Armin Van Buuren blends the perfect mix of sweetness with raw energy.   From the 2 min. mark to 3 min, it’s pure bliss.

“PROMISES IN THE DARK”   MARTINA McBRIDE and PAT BENATAR

From the CMT Crossroads series, two of the most iconic powerful female voices team up for a remake of a 80’s smash.  “Crossroads” brilliantly pairs current country singers with rock artists who inspired their music.   ZZ Top with Brooks & Dunn, Steve Miller Band with Kenny Chesney, and Jimmy Buffett with Zac Brown Band were some other notable pairings.    Martina began her career as a rock singer and her “pipes” are still amazing matching Pat note for note!

“WITHOUT YOU”   ASIA

From the mega-selling debut CD from 1982’s supergroup, Asia, came this album track that didn’t get a video or much airplay but stands among the best Asia has ever done.   “Without You” has it all, grand crescendos of drums, swirling rock guitars, Yes-like moments, keyboard solos, and lyrics that inspire.    The original members released a new CD last year and are working on a 2012 project.
