JOYSIC and ROBBIE ROSEN, “How To Save A Life”
It’s already hard to believe when you see the song title that The Fray first arrived on the scene back in 2006 with “Over My Head (Cable Car)” and “How To Save A Life”, both pop hits that endure to today. “How To Save A Life” in its original incarnation is a sometimes explosive and emotional release, but Finnish producer Joysic and New York singer/songwriter and man of many releases Robbie Rosen have scaled back the intensity somewhat in their new take on the song. And it works well – Robbie’s vocal still captures the emotion of the song with a much gentler interpretation. The production is big where it needs to be and otherwise is highly complimentary to Robbie’s vocal. “How To Save A Life” is an ear-catching surprise for club patrons to hear in that setting.
