Customer Reviews


Yes babies, once again iTunes deceives its customers and serves us cr@p on a china platter. These are rerecordings of Shannon's 80's hits. They are not good. As a matter of fact they are bad. Worse, they go beyond the realm of badness and delve into the foray of the offensive. I consider this album a personal affront to my musical sensibilities and hold iTunes solely responsible for this desecration. I wish they would return my 99 cents.... imperialist pigs!!!!!

Worse than I Ever Could Have Imagined

I loved the song Let the Music Play in the 80s (I bought the 45) when it came out and was pshyched to see it on the Itunes top 10 banner on my home page. When I played the snippet I was amazed to hear how this rerecording is so devoid of the life that made the origianal a great dance song. The bells are muted and not crisp like the original and worse, the vocals sound totally unispired. It sounds as though Shannon is just walking through it listlessly. The original sounded like she was hungry for the object of her affection. This version sounds like she could take it or leave it. What a disappointment. To all of the youngsters who are blissfully ignorant of the comparison to the original - I'm glad you can enjoy it. I will pass.


I was excited when I saw iTunes had Shannon's awesome sone "Let The Music Play" and bought it without thouroughly listening to the preview, thinking it was the original. Then I played my newly DL'd song... DOH! This certainly is NOT the original. Just some lame remix. Do yourself a favor and take your .99 cents someplay else. You have been warned!
