Recycle It!: The Quiet Side Of 'Baby Be Mine' According To Quadron

Monday, September 27, 2010



Is anyone on Michael Jackson tribute burn-out? Maybe I'm the only Wicked Witch of the Blonglandia who will admit that, but whatever, I'm a bit weary of hearing everybody and their mama doing renditions. Well, that was until Quadron completely changed the game for this moment. My applause goes to Quadron for not succumbing to the typical Jackson remakes of "Man In The Mirror", "Smooth Criminal" and "Billie Jean" and actually digging deeper in the tracklistings of Jackson's catalog. The man had other songs and "Baby Be Mine" is one of 'em. "Baby Be Mine" has been a favorite of mines off of Thriller, and the Rod Temperton composed track usually gets buried among the other big hits. It's now coming up for air, since Quadron takes it into creamy ice cream dreamland as the song is paced slower and morphs into a torchy ballad. You may miss the funk on this (I do miss those squishy synths), but you can't knock the innovation that Quadron displays. See this is why you should already be into Quadron by now, if not, then now is your chance.   

Shouts to Soul Bounce for the heads up.
