In the first post of this series (see here), I asked you to post songs that were covers in a different musical idiom than the original. As I emphasized then:
Impossible to lose; everyone that plays is a winner.
This second round focuses on the echos of musical history we hear in contemporary pop. The theme is: songs you are reminded exist while listening to this song or video. The jumping off point is Beyonce’s “Love on Top:”
You have to draw comparison to New Edition’s “If It Isn’t Love:”
Can you come up with two songs (or two videos) with such referential material? Go to it in the comments; I can’t wait.
Extra credit: references for the other new Beyonce video (“Countdown”) other than “Pillow Talk” and Martha Graham.
