STYLE: DISCO / POP
A CLASSIC TRACK FROM 1997. AN ORIGINAL CD SINGLE ON THE “BMG(UK)” RECORD LABEL.
1. THE FULL MONTY MONSTER MIX (3:50)- Various Artists
2. THE STRIPPER (2:11)Loss, Joe & His Orchestra
3. YOU CAN LEAVE YOUR HAT ON (4:28) Etta James / Joe Cocker cover …..Performed by Tom Jones
“The Full Monty Monster Mix” is enjoyable and a megamix destined to become a party favourite. Its just a pity that this CD single never enjoyed any chart success and because of that has become something of a rarity.
“The Full Monty Monster Mix” features three tracks used on the movies soundtrack: ‘You Sexy Thing’ (Hot Chocolate), ‘Hot Stuff’ (Donna Summer) and ‘You Can Leave Your Hat On’ (Tom Jones). To give this megamix a ‘club’ feel, an uptempo drum beat has been inserted into the mix which improves the quality of the Hot Chocolate & Donna Summer tracks sampled.
Track Two: “The Stripper” performed by the Joe Loss Orchestra.
If you haven’t heard this classic instrumental track before then you *must* have led a very sheltered life! Not a track you’re likely to play at parties (maybe you will….I dunno!) or a track you’ll play often. Still, this is a fine reminder of the movie itself.
Track Three: “You Can Leave Your Hat On” (Exclusive REMIX) performed by Tom Jones.
Not the best remix of YCLYHO available, but I found it very enjoyable indeed. This remixed version of (what is probably) Tom Jones’ best song in recent times is a lot slower to the one featured in the megamix (and movie for that matter). Still worth giving it a spin at parties though.
I highly recommend any fan of the movie to go find a copy of this CD single (incidentally, you won’t find this megamix on the soundtrack album).
