Back in the 90's, I was in the car with my kids a song came on the radio, and I started singing along. My children were agog. Not at my singing ability but because I knew the words to the song. I asked why? It was because the tune had just been released. I explained that it was a remake/sample of a 70's song and that it wasn't new.
Some remade tunes are better than the original. I love Motown.
