Bad Touch – ‘I’ve Got the Music in Me’
It was a stroke of genius to pair old school style rockers Bad Touch with Kiki Dee’s breakthrough 1974 hit single, the band putting all their youthful energy into one of the best ‘forgotten’ classics of the era.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6tXao6t79I&w=560&h=315]
The original version of ‘I’ve Got The Music In Me’ was a ballsy, uptempo stomper but the Norfolk quintet have taken this and turbocharged it into a sexed up and souped-up blast of raw power and all out fun.
Full of bold brass, brilliant female backing vocals and urgency, this adds a real touch of Stax soulfulness into the mix that perfectly complements the guys swaggering rock ‘n’ roll flavour.
Dazzling and impossible not to love, this will make your day.
