I love me some Michael Bublé. I also love me some remixes…so when I heard that the ever amazing Richard Cutmore had done some remixes for Bublé’s single “Haven’t Met You Yet,” I of course did 3 back flips and the splits. This isn’t the first time Bublé has been remixed for the dance floors. Previous singles including “Sway,” “Save The Last Dance For Me,” “Spiderman Theme,” and “It Had Better Be Tonight (Meglio Stasera)” have all been remixed for the dance floors. Even his Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings-assisted “Baby (You’ve Got What It Takes)” received some club love. What can I say? Bublé just has a remix-friendly vocal and I’m thankful for that.
Now. What about these new mixes? Yes, “Haven’t Met You Yet” was the first single off his last album, Crazy Love and YES it came out last summer but better late than never, right? The song peaked at #24 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, went all the way to #1 on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary Chart and peaked at #5 on the UK Singles Chart. So remixes almost a year later? Well, it has something to do with the big Twitter love fest I saw happen last Sunday when ITV aired An Audience With Michael Bublé. People were going crazy for Mr. Bublé and at the time I had no idea WHY NOW? Hasn’t he been amazing for years? At any rate, this TV concert generated more interest in the singer AND in the single and apparently it’s set to re-enter the UK Top 40 Chart this weekend. Enter Richard Cutmore, who’s done some remixes. The label is giving UK DJs exclusive access to the Cutmore Remixes in the hope that it drums up some club-crossover success. I think this is a fabulous idea! Check out the official Cutmore video remix above and let me know what you think.
