My favourite song of all time. There is nothing that comes close to this in my opinion. Everyone needs a physical copy of this in their collection.
Absolute beast of a tune. So simple but very effective disco loops, and a catchy vocal to complete this classic. I just can’t believe some greedy bastards are trying to sell this for stupid amounts of money! This is what’s stopping genuine collectors and music lovers buying a copy. Unbelievable man!!
What am I on about? There’s over 80 for sale so it’s hardly a rarity. I get it when there’s only a handful or it’s a genuine rare record. This was in the charts for fucks sake and like I say, greedy bastards trying to cash in on a simple commercial record. Would you pay £150 for this? I don’t think so mate.
what are you on about? supply/demand. It's the cost of a lot of new records anyway
Just played this track after having filed it away for a long time, (original Roule pressing) and you have to hold your hands up and say that looking back sometimes a song no matter the genre HAS to go mainstream to the masses, to be enjoyed by all. It's such a massive track. If you are an aspiring DJ or just like playing music, you cannot fail with this heavyweight gem. Special.... As for breaking house into the mainstream I'd say no, but it made even more people take notice and won them over.
Bought this from Discogs marketplace. Sound quality is great on first spin! Although the sleeve was just plain black and not the cover art indicated above. Etching on reverse side of record says "LOVE MIGHT BRING US BACK TOGETHER"
Unless the seller clearly stated it coming with a generic sleeve, it was probably the repress you bought that comes only in a generic black sleeve. The seller most likely unwittingly listed it for sale on the original pressing release instead of the repress (which would have had the roule sleeve).
Great song. Definitely a must have for any House fan
Overrated. Overrated and Mainstream. But it's not bad in any way.
Your Mama is mainstream... but not overrated... but she's not bad in any way...
Not sure how "Mainstream" serves as a negative qualifier though?
What are you saying actually? It is overrated and mainstream enough for anyone to play it anywhere.
Overrated and mainstream enough for Palms Trax to play it at Dekmantel MainStage ;) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8jVM0ot8IQ
Virgin paid Roule £100,000 to license Music Sounds Better With You.
I friggin' love how they etched "Music sounds better with you - Love might bring us back together" on the b-side.
The one house track that I hate to love and love to hate. Still rocks the dancefloor as hard as the day it came out.
I read once that this track was responsible for bringing house music out of the underground and into mainstream. Now you know who to blame! :-)
madonna - vogue was an house hit back in 1990
Seriously? Van Helden's mix of Tori Amos, Ultra Nate - Free, Dario G - Sunchyme, The Bucketheads - The Bomb, Livin' Joy, JX, K-Klass all had either number 1 singles or top 30 best selling singles in the UK for 1995-1997.
Obviously since but name some tracks before? I can't think of any
there have been many a mainstream house hit before and since this. many.
Seanis101 I read once that this track was responsible for bringing house music out of the underground and into mainstream. Now you know who to blame! :-) And house music hasn't been the same since..
just the biggest house track ever. respect to braxe, diamond, bangaltar
A real classic this song is! Really great Guitar riff! They turned that stupid Electric Guitar sound (from the song that they sampled) into a nice tune! I don't care if it's repetitive, it's so much better than noisy Rock Music is!!!
No...it's not. It's "Fate" by Chaka Khan (1981)...go and have a listen.
The sample came from a Chaka Khan song, not a rock song. And there is nothing stupid about rhythm guitar. I guess you've never heard of funk, soul, or disco?
the guitar riff is sampled from BODY MUSIC by The Strikers
I'm so sorry, it's just that I don't like Rock Music...........
That "Stupid" guitar sound you speak of came from a great song by Chaka Khan called "Fate". It was not a rock song, it was r & b, btw.
ooh baby~
the main groove has been sampled from Chaka Khan - Fate (1981). In my opinion the original song is 1000 times better than this house track because isn't so repetitive, it's a normal song played live. however, Stardust's version remand me to my youth, when all the radios start spinning this vinyl for the whole summer of 1996.
It's still more original than most of today's dance music is!
Um...no, the opposite is true. The original song is quality music with a great arrangement. All Bangalter did was create a 4-bar loop of the intro. Very repetitive.
The original song's probably boring. Stardust - "Music Sounds Better With You" is so much better!
1998 :)
The copy I got through as a promo has a slightly more MAtt cover to it than the store release, even though all the artwork is the same.
I love this song in an incredible way. I'm 17 but from 2 years I listen this music and nowadays I always love this song
this was thee top tune to be playing in ibiza in 98,1998 was a top year for banging filter house
kind of like the "where were you when kennedy got shot" of this particular era of house music. i first heard the track in a record store the day it arrived. the girl behind the counter was playing it through over and over, just lifting the needle back to the beginning and playing it again without even looking up at the people in the store. she didn't have to check. we all wanted to hear it again.
Hard to describe how influential this track was, a genuine classic.It's a fiendishly brilliant production too, and hard to forget the first time you hear it in a club mainly because, almost uniquely among contemporary house tracks, there's no intro to speak of (even on the 12" mix). This makes it nigh on impossible to beatmix into the track, much to the annoyance of every DJ then and since; Bangalter just teasingly loops the sample through a high-pass filter for about 30 seconds, long enough for everyone to stop and wonder 'what the hell is going on, is the sound system fucked?' ... then boom!, the bassline drops in and it's goodnight :-)
impossible to beatmix? the loop intro is perfect 4/4...count it off, start of sample = 1 followed by 3 rim shots.you don't need beats to "beat mix"...getting to know the breaks on your exit tracks will help you immensely as well.
On the Saturday this came out, two copies of this were simultaneously spanked for hours in Luna Bar (Bar Basics)Leeds. Disco house, though, had already been going for years. It was a natural gradual progression, impossble to pinpoint a specific point in time, cos that point would be different for everybody.
My best mate and I when into our fave record store in Sydney on the day it was realeased. The guy behind the counter grabbed us, took us to a private booth, gave us the 12", gave us a smile and shut the door. 1 hour later we were still in there bouncing off the walls.Deep, disco house at its finest that rocked from Sydney to Leeds!
correct me if i'm wrong, but that could be the point when disco-house kicked off so heavy. stardust just created the precedent for millions of tunes with the formula of a continuous soft disco loop jiberish, somehow trying to take you back to something. this tune is terrific, impossible to describe it, just need to hear it.
There's something about this song, that just makes it so awesome. It follows the same formula that a lot of other house tracks do (See: One More Time and Digital Love by Daft Punk, U Don't Know Me by Armand Van Helden, Lady by Modjo) but this one has some unique quality to it that I can't put my finger on. It's just so, full of energy, life, and awesomeness! Benjamin Diamond's vocals sound different here, he sounds like a different person. And it's just so, inspiring.Long Live French House!
the formula is simply ripping off somebody´s else's music, add one or 2 filters, let it go on all the same for about 4 minute and the g(f)ame is done. All the 4 track you mention use this formula. I think it´s a really exaggeratedly overhyped record. there was much better stuff at the time (Alan Braxe - Running, just to make an example).
I am quite surprised that "only" 517 ppl want this.immortal release
dude it's 2015!
3006 want this in 2014
The first time i ever went to a club or even heard house music was the spring of 1999 in Montreal, Canada... this song got played. The whole night blew my mind and this track was stuck in my head for weeks! 11 years later and im still listening to house music...
44 people are selling this immortal classic ... Madness sheer madness
I can recall hearing this way back at the Asylum in Springfield, MA USA. Years later, I heard Colette mixing it and asked who it was. The love affair resumed! Allow that old skool love to ensue, put the needle on it.
haha hell yeah, that club was a hot pile of mess but they brought in the best acts and had amazing sound!
I remember the asylum! what a place!
Funniest thing I know about this particular edition of the record , seeing as it was the very first pressing - A French guy called Sebastian, drove thousands of copies over to London from France, the minute they were released from the pressing plant. He managed to be the first person to arrive with them, and sold them (I think for cash) to the likes of eagerly awaiting distributors as Amato / Prime etc. With the proceeds, he treated himself to a spanking new Range Rover. The next day, presumably after his long into the night victory celebrations, he was pulled over for drink driving, and later lost his license. At some considerable loss, the car had to be sold. And the moral of this story? None, it just makes me laugh when I think about it! Maybe, it was "Fate" at work, just like the sample. Hat's off to Braxe, Diamond, Bangalter, Chaka's producer Arif Mardin, and the original uncredited star of the show - guitar player / sample creator Hiram Bullock. In the cumbersome days of frantic first-to-the-post vinyl distribution, only a handful of dance tracks ever created such a universal buzz as this, and for many dj's, it still guarantees business on dancefloors worldwide. Stardust Indeed!
For what its worth, I recall hearing this for the first time on a BBC Radio One Essential Mix live from Ibiza, when Danny Rampling dropped it in the middle of the mix, and I have to say that I could not shut up about it for days afterwards. An amazing track that gave me rushes unfelt since my early clubbing forays during the hiatus of Italo/Piano/E-tunes of the early '90's. However, this record has stood the test of time far better than those tracks, and will continue to do so. It was my stand out track of 1998 and almost ten (my god has it been that long) years on brings back very happy memories from a Summer I had convinced myself would never end! In fact I'm going to put in on the decks now. Stardust thank you!
What can i say that hasn't already been said? It really is an amazing tune. Definitely one that people of my generation will listen to in our 50's and reminisce over such delights as "Ibiza Uncovered", "TUNE!" signs, Ministry Of Sound compilations, and Human Traffic...the late 90's basically. The tune is so simple, but thats possibly why its so good. Bangalter never used this alias again as he felt he could not do it justice and follow this track up. Very sensible. There were a slew of bootlegs, i actually liked the Stuntamsterz "Holiday" mash up as well. A modern classic for sure. Respect to this track.
You're at a party. Then this track comes. You've just had the time to hear the eternal guitar gimmick, but it's already done: you became insane. Then Mr. Diamond starts to sing like he's possessed by Tom Jones, and you cry. You kiss your neighbours, you dance like it's your last day on Earth, you scream, you raise arms. This happens every time. And it always will. The magic contained in that track remains a mystery, as it is ridiculously simple: a loop, some words, period. And that is exactly what makes this a work of genius, the type of genius that animated formerly the chicagoan house music makers: the Groove (with a capital G, like God). Loops repeated for hours, like a modern tribal dance. But "Music sounds better with you" took the Groove further, it took it to a worldwide appeal. Don't just consider this track like a one-day top charts hit. "Music sounds better with you" is a milestone. This is an unbeatable monster of a song, everybody's anthem. Auditive cocaine, hypnosis for masses. Moistness and sex. Love and hope. This is THE song.
