The Night Is My World


I’m not sure whether to be aghast or secretly delighted that the latest release by Danish pop group Infernal is a cover of my all time favourite italo disco records; Self Control. Their version is fairly faithful cover of the Laura Brannigan cover of the Raf classic.

MP3: Infernal – Self Control (expired)
MP3: Raf – Self Control (expired)
MP3: Laura Branigan – Self Control (expired)
MP3: Replicant feat. Marc Almond – Self Control (expired)

You've got to check out Ricky Martin's version, too. It's called Que Dia es Hoy (Self Control). Here's link to where you can hear sample, http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=10:4p811vd8zzxa

It's track #9.

The Marc version is great, although I have two versions of the track. One is much beefier and goes on for around seven minutes. This version is the radio edit on the commercial single release as far as I can see.

No-one beats Laura's version however.
