By focusing on strong vocals and a catchy beat, his aim was to stay true to the original while making it blend into today’s music culture.
Martial Simon’s music taste really drove the purpose of this song. He loves old records; but also, he is a huge fan of today’s music scene, and that was the vision for “Let’s Hear It for the Boy.” What developed is an energetic dance cover of the #1 billboard hit from 1984 (in the movie “Footloose”) that’s infused with 2021-style sound.
The song really has a kick to it and a funky bass line, plus a unique piano riff to capture that “feel good” element. The chorus is the focal point, so he stuttered and doubled her voice in an EDM tone by chopping and screwing the vocals with one shots and effects. Covers are all the rage right now, which he is thrilled about, and his goal is to make people dance and have some much-needed fun while staying true to the roots of the original anthem.
