High 5: Bed Club Anthems 2003-08 Collection

Well, a friend and I decided to go to the Saturday Anniversary party of Bed and we had a great time. What made the night even greater was when I got to score one of the CDs they raffled off to guests at the entrance.

I don't know about the legality of distributing a CD full of MP3s (and almost all of them are at least 192 kbps quality) (and note that Bed is a licensee of FILSCAP) but I certainly appreciate getting my hands on several of these songs. I'm also elated to finally learn the title and/or the name of the artist of a few songs that had eluded me before.

All in all, I think that the collection is a fine sampling of the popular tunes Bed's DJs have played over the years and I'm familiar with (or at least heard) the majority of them. However, I don't think that several of the included songs deserve to be called a "Bed anthem." An example is "The Sound Of San Francisco" by the Global Deejays; it doesn't have the floor-filler/gay factor that other songs, such as Jimmy James' "Fashionista," has. I would opine that some of the following tracks would've been a better pick for inclusion into the CD instead:

  1. Madonna - Hung Up (SDP Extended Vocal)
  2. Moony - Flying Away (T&F vs. Moltosugo Club Mix)
  3. LMC vs. U2 - Take Me to the Clouds Above (The Mash Up Kids Remix)
  4. Gustavo Santaolalla - The Wings (Theme from Brokeback Mountain) (The Manny Lehman / Tony Moran / Warren Rigg Collaboration Mix) [especially this one!]
  5. Gloria Estefan - Heaven's What I Feel (Victor Calderone Mix)
  6. Paris Hilton - Stars Are Blind (Tracy Does Paris Remix)
  7. Samantha James - Rise (Original Mix)
  8. Solu Music feat. KimBlee - Fade (Grant Nelson Big Room Vocal Mix)
  9. Black Rock feat. Debra Andrew - Blue Water (Vocal Mix)
  10. Benny Benassi - Satisfaction
  11. David Guetta feat. JD Davis - The World Is Mine (Original Mix)
  12. Global Deejays - What a Feeling (Clubhouse Mix)

What do you think? Do you agree with my observations, or not? What songs do you think shouldn't be on the CD and what should take their place? :-)

Lam mo ba parekoy meron akong MP3s ng mga house music. Being a clubber, alam ko kung anong mga songs ang orig sa BED, Government, Mint, and Mister Piggys hehe. The tracks they put on the collection were the club sounds that identify BED.

Mugen, oh, so connoisseur ka pala ng club music. Hehehe. I couldn't really tell that the songs in the CD are signature Bed songs, although I first heard "Ever After" in Bed before it got wildly popular.

Kai, yup! If you love Bed's songs, then its a CD for keeps. (Of course, if you're a Bed fanatic, you likely have most of the songs on the CD in the first place.) :)

Sorry guys. I don't want to get sued for distributing music. If you really want the songs, there are plenty of P2P networks out there.
