No Duff too tough!
You know her whether you like her or not and while I'll be the first person to say she doesn't have the best voice out there, there's something about it that really works for the club mixes (read: Rihanna).
It was really the fact that Jody Den Broeder remixed this song that caught my attention. Usually working along side Chris Cox and Tony Moran, Jody has broken out of his shell and stepped into the spotlight with some of his own remixes lately. ALL of which have been stellar and this is right up there
Jody's mix clocks in at around 10 minutes in it's original form but I've edited it and it's slammin! Go Jody!!!
Before "Stranger" came to be, there was this song which ended up being the theme song for MTV's "Laguna Beach" and Duff's first top forty US hit. The album it came from "Metamorphosis", went number 1 in the US and was one of the best selling albums of the year (2003). It later went on to sell over 3.7 million copies.
Chris Cox took the song and did what he does best: Anthem-ized it! (Yes, I made up that word, but it's my blog and I can do that! Haha!)
So guilty pleasure or not, the production value's in both of these mixes can't be denied.
