pro wrestling exhibitions I watched on TV
as a boy. In this series I will present modern
recordings that either cover or sample old hits.
There are two pairs of recordings in each post.
Think of each pair as a wrestling tag team.
They do not compete against each other.
They compete together against the
opposing tag team (song team).
in 1967 with "(Your Love Keeps
Lifting Me) Higher and Higher."
Pixie Lott released a cover of "Higher
and Higher" on her first greatest hits
album Platinum Pixie: Hits.
Higher and Higher" Pixie Lott
(from November 2014 album
top 10 with "Oh How Happy."
Ste McGregor goes by the name Kidda.
In 2009, Kidda released "Strong 2Gether,"
a single that samples the Shades of
Blue hit "Oh How Happy."
