Everyone loves a good remake. Some outshine the originals, while others leave a lot to be desired. In either case, every monday we are going to showcase remakes and their predecessors. Maybe give you a little knowledge on your favorite song, while opening the discussion on which version is “better”.
In this edition of ‘Remake Monday’ I’m putting the spotlight on one of my all-time favorite tracks “Voyage to Atlantis”. The song was originally recorded and released in 1977 by the Isley Brothers, as part of their Go For Your Guns album. The song became a classic quiet storm moment. Although an official remake was never recorded by her, Keyshia Cole has covered the song numerous times on tour. Cole was personally requested to perform the track at the 2010 Soul Train Awards as part of their Ron Isley Tribute.
