- It wasn't till today that I've been able to buy the new single (on
vinyl and CD od course!).
I haven't listened to it yet, but I'll comment on the mixes later.
Not as many mixes from the guys as usual....?
Here's a review of the single from Dotmusic.co.uk:
No. 32 - KID 2000 (Hybrid featuring Chrissie Hynde)
The current trend for dance records made out of the most obscure
sources possible continues with what some people may regard as its
zenith. This much talked about single sees none other than Chrissie
Hynde give her blessing and new vocals to a high speed trance
reworking of the Pretenders' 1979 hit single. All I can say is that
she must have needed the money as a less worthy dance remake you
would be hard pressed to find, even if the single actually manages to
beat the peak of the original by one place. Still the collaboration
has been taken a step further, Hybrid actually joining her onstage on
the festival circuit. This single marks the first Top 40 appearance
for Hybrid who had two minor chart singles last year. Funnily enough
this isn't the first time Chrissie Hynde has taken a step into the
world of dance music, her vocals gracing Moodswings' reworking of
State Of Independence which staggered to Number 47 in 1993, two years
after it was recorded.

I thought "Finished Symphony" and "If I Survive" both got into the Top
40... was I wrong? If they didn't, how well _did_ they do?

they reuse, maybe they called it a cover cuz they got her to resing the
vocals?.....Anyone else heard the original 'kid' by the pretenders? did you
have nightmares for weeks after like me? :P
