Pump up the jam

In a previous post I referred to A-ha's "Take on me" as one of the best pop tracks ever made. Another one is of course Technotronic's "Pump up the jam", a track I like as much today as I did when it was released in '89. So here's my tribute post to Thomas de Quincey's and Manuela Kamosi's masterpiece.

First up, some covers:

Norton - Pump Up The Jam


Tenderlions - Pump Up The Jam


Then, a couple of remixes:

Technotronic - Pump Up The Jam (The Disco Villains Remix)

(Disco Villains)

Technotronic - Pump Up The Jam (Malk Remix)


(Sondra Prill - contestant for "Angriest singing in a music video set on a beach")

Lastly, a mash-up and the original:

Technotronic vs. MSTRKRFT - Pump Up The Looks (Fiar Medico Mashup)
