MIDNIGHT KIDS and JARED LEE, “Those Were The Days”
“Those Were The Days” is one of those poignant lyrical pop songs that can easily find its way into the dance genre with some remixes. Over the last year or so, US duo Midnight Kids have played to both genres with their releases and the remixes that they have done, so with this strong original release, the marriage of the two comes as no surprise. Midnight Kids are Dylan Lee (he’s one of two sons of Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson) and Kyle Girard. “Those Were The Days” is exceptionally radio friendly with loads of thanks to the gleaming vocal of Jared Lee (no relation to Dylan), who I’ve written about before and is also poised to break out because of it. And it’s a great end of school/graduation song as well with its uplifting vibe which makes it okay to reminisce because memories help make us who we are. Be sure to listen to this one this summer and I can only bet that remixes will put it onto the club charts too.
