About this item
Two new edits from The Reflex. First up we have Wham’s ‘Everything She Wants’. Hey! Don’t curl that upper lip, ESW has been called one of ‘THE funkiest tracks ever written’ by none other than Francois K. Now you might want to head on over to New York to disagree with him, me, I’m a child of the eighties and Wham! have always sounded pretty good to my ears. Apart from that time I took the album off at a house party to try and put The Cure on and got chased down the street by a house full of annoyed fans, but other than that, me and Wham! have always got along just fine.
The B side finds Mr Flex in less contentious territory, with a conga and piano heavy rework of Mancuso loft favourite, Eddie Kendrick’s ‘Date With The Rain’. Now I’m sure you all know the original but, just in case you’ve forgotten it’s a sublime slice of disco funk that has our Eddie walking in the rain to hide his tears and ease his broken heart. Records really don’t come any better than this.
David says: Wham's 'Everything She Wants' is a an absolute monster of a record, if your friends tells you different,you need to get some new friends. You could start with The Reflex (Flex to his friends), he knows the score.
