If you thought Cascada’s 2009 single “Evacuate The Dancefloor”—which, let’s face it, was basically a bargain-basement knockoff Lady Gaga’s “Just Dance”—was a desperate ploy to get the German dance outfit back into the good graces of the charts the world over (hey, it worked), then wait till you hear their latest, “Pyromania.” Catch the video for the “Poker Face” wannabe-jam below.
Wow. Who ever will they find for vocalist Natalie Horler to duet with on the inevitable “Telephone” recreation?
Also, in case you need a reminder of Cascada’s Gaga leanings, here’s “Evacuate The Dancefloor,” which slowly but surely creeped up to #25 on the Billboard Hot 100 last fall:
Gosh. This is like a flashback to the ’90s, when you’d browse the CD singles rack in a record store and it would be littered with dance music covers of popular songs. Only they were recorded by anonymous acts with slightly similar names than the original artist.
For instance, there was this gem—”Barbie Girl” by Velva Blu:
Something tells us that might not be the actual music video for Velva Blu’s Aqua cover. But whatever that is, it seems whoever made it had a slightly larger budget than Cascada did for “Pyromania.”
