Well, that's the death of trance...

...as an intelligent and enjoyable musical genre (outside of small labels, like the always wonderful and challenging Platipus).

A recent trend has been the "updating" of "classic" 80s rock and pop tunes as dance music, using trance elements as the basis for the new versions. It's not been good. Not at all, what with the various Supertramp, Belinda Carlisle and Heart covers. But now it's got worse.

Much worse.

Listening to Di.fm's Vocal Trance station on iTunes Radio I just heard a trance version of German AOR veterans The Scorpions' metal lite "Wind Of Change". Now that's what I call scraping the bottom of the barrel. What's next? Europe's "The Final Countdown"?
