Wild West : Sharam tribute to Patsy Cline


A must-listen to Wild West remix by DJ Sharam ! You gotta turn your audio up a little as the song has a fading in start . I was compiling some house, dance and remixes for myspace playlist when I ‘bump’ into this tune and instantly fell in love with it. It has a cowboy theme going on , some classic country chorus (sampled from Patsy Cline’s ‘Strange’)  topped up with rapping by Kid Cudi.  FYI, Patsy Cline (1932-1963) was a country singer.

Cline was best known for her rich tone and emotionally expressive bold contralto voice, which, along with her role as a mover and shaker in the country music industry, has been cited as an inspiration by many vocalists of various music genres. Her life and career have been the subject of numerous books, movies, documentaries, articles and stage plays.

Her hits included “Walkin’ After Midnight“, “I Fall to Pieces“, “She’s Got You“, “Crazy” and “Sweet Dreams“. Posthumously, millions of her albums have been sold over the past 46 years and she has been given numerous awards, which have given her an iconic status with some fans similar to that of legends Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley. Ten years after her death, she became the first female solo artist inducted to the Country Music Hall of Fame. << (cool or what?!)

In 2002, Cline was voted by artists and members of the country music industry as number one on CMT’s television special, The 40 Greatest Women of Country Music, and in 1999 she was voted number 11 on VH1’s special The 100 Greatest Women in Rock and Roll by members and artists of the rock industry. According to her 1973 Country Music Hall of Fame plaque, “Her heritage of timeless recordings is testimony to her artistic capacity.”

There are a few other remix version of this songs, but this one sounds just right.  Hahaha.. Enjoys !! Eh wait, don’t forget to sing along to the video ok. 😛

Kid Cudi: Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh,

Chorus

Strange, how you stopped loving me (loving me)
How you stopped needing me (needing me)
When she came along (Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh)
Strange, you changed like night and day (night and day)
Just up and walked away (walked away)
When she came along (Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh)

Hey, uh, uh, oh baby baby
I was upset and you know you shady
Blame it on me like I’m fugazy
I put in work and you got lazy
Now you sayin it’s shame on me
You left with a chick with a set of double D’s
Why should we separate like Siamese
Didn’t anybody tell you sex better in threes
I can be the reason that you both knock kneed
If I tell my homie Zulee he wouldn’t knock me
Try to tell me lies, but you’re so sloppy
When you leave with your friends, they all jock me
I understand if she know how to please you
I understand if she lovin’ And tease You
In my right mind I should probably leave you
Why can’t all three of us be peoples

Strange, how you stopped loving me (loving me)
How you stopped needing me (needing me)
When she came along (Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh)
Strange, you changed like night and day (night and day)
Just up and walked away (walked away)
When she came along (Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh)

Yo, please Listen
Uh, uh, don’t dip out baby
I can live life fine with two ladies
Two heads are better than the one God gave me
And I’m messed up, been stressin’ lately
Please Tell Me, know you gotta feel how I feel
Imagine us lounging together
And I feel you, while you feel her, and she feel Me
Love triangle, love in all angles
If you spend more time, I won’t trip or spazz out
‘Long as when we home we freak out
And let your friends know exactly what we ’bout
More heavy fam, we living our dreams out
Sexy, I know you probably think you can be stress-free
Without K.I.D., but you gon’ see if you ever left, never get it better
You’ll miss me

Ohh Baby, ohh baby, just talk to me, just tell me let’s work it out
Hey baby, I need you baby (both of yall)
Baby, I need you baby (both of yall)
I Need You Baby.

Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Na Na Oh, Na Na Oh
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Na Na Oh, Na Na Oh, Na, Oh.

Take my hand, baby girl let’s roll
I can make you feel okay
Just take my hand, both of you, I can make you feel okay
Okay

Chorus

Strange, how you stopped loving me (loving me)
How you stopped needing me (needing me)
When she came along (Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh)
Strange, you changed like night and day (night and day)
Just up and walked away (walked away)
When she came along (Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh)

Strange, how you stopped loving me (loving me)
How you stopped needing me (needing me)
When she came along (Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh)
Strange, you changed like night and day (night and day)
Just up and walked away (walked away)
When she came along (Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh)

Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Na Na Oh, Na Na Oh
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Na Na Oh, Na Na Oh, Na, Oh.

Some Sharam info : Sharam is an Iranian house DJ. Sharam is no aloof spinner, looking down on the crowds from his booth on high. His latest video is an homage to Spaghetti Westerns, featuring hip-hop wunderkind Kid Cudi. Before that, his radio hit “Party All the Time (P.A.T.T.)” was an homage to the Eddie Murphy ’90s single of the same name.

Sharam got started in the DC scene in the ’90s, teaming up with Ali “Dubfire” Shirazinia, a native Washingtonian who grew up in that city’s punk scene. (Think: Dischord.) Together, as Deep Dish, they gained cred, world fame, and put out some of the world’s best dance music as the brains behind their own record label. But his break-out work has been just as successful. In 2006, his compilation Global Underground: Dubai was critically lauded.

For his 2009 Spring record, Get Wild, Sharam collaborated with everyone from Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee to P Diddy to Kid Cudi to Patsy Cline (well, her vocals).

This week, he released the video he directed for his Kid Cudi collaboration  “She Came Along.” A huge film buff, Sharam told DJ Mag he thought of it as a ” homage to Sergio Leone and Ennio Morricone” — Spaghetti Western filmmakers.

The video is great, but the eclectic song is even better. Over dark, retro female vocals that could have come from an old phonograph, Kid Cudi lays down his trademark lenient, rhythmic vocals. In the background there’s a bit of Western twang. And, of course, a roving dance-beat like a horse galloping through the dusty streets. (go youtube the official vid ok)

Strange by Patsy Kline

If you’re an Elvis Presley , Henry Burr or Vaughn de Leath fan, and dig  ‘Are you loneseome tonight?’, check out 0:48 – 0:58 in the video above…Rings a bell ?

Do the chairs in your parlor seem empty and bare?
Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there?
Is your heart filled with pain, shall I come back again?
Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?

The melody sounds similar !!! If you’re a Norah Jones fan, do check out her cover version of ‘Are You Lonesome Tonight’, a song made hit by Elvis Presley 🙂
