I Cry – The Evolution of a Song

In this day and age a good old song can be ripped apart and reassembled in 1 a hundred and one different ways. Just for the sake of example I’ve posted the video for the song I Cry by Flo Rida which took the dance song Cry by the Bingo Players and added a hip hop flavoring to the club-ready track and made it radio accessible. But before these two dance-floor draws were released, Brenda Russell was playing Piano in the Dark for an earlier generation.
The moral of the story kids is: Writing a dope ass hook will get you PAID!
