It is a universally acknowledged truth that every popular song—regardless of genre—must have a bachata cover. This fact, irrefutable as gravity, cannot be denied; it can, at best, only be ignored. Those who choose to live in its ignorance deprive themselves of some of the best dance music around because bachata covers have a particular magic about them: they bring a fresh interpretation to a song, making it “danceable” in hitherto undiscovered ways.
Featuring the likes of “Careless Whispers” by George Michael, “Get Lucky” by Daft Punk and Pharrell Williams, and Wyclef Jean’s “Killing Me Softly” this playlist features bachata covers that will make any dance enthusiast look forward to The Salsa Club’s reopening in the coming weeks.
