While driving on a quick errand, ZZ Top’s “Legs” came on the ole’ radio. This song, from their 1983 release Eliminator, features a great mix of new-wave upbeat percussion and their Texas styled raucous blues rock. Then the thought came into the mind, man, this song could be a hit today – it would also create for a great contemporary remix. Well, it turns out other brains had beaten me to it. This is 3AM‘s remix of the classic ZZ Top song. It’s nice because the DJ lets much of the original song shine through, with the appropriate extra bass emphasis and mid song progressive-house like breakdowns that really are enjoyable.
A great remix should get one both interested in the original song, and the talent of the DJ remixing said song. Well, mission accomplished with this one 3AM!
