The song, “Crying At The Discoteque”, was originally recorded by Alcazar in 2000
“Crying At The Discoteque” was recorded by Swedish quartet Alcazar in 2000 for their debut album, “Casino”. The song samples French disco band Sheila and B. Devotion’s 1979 hit, “Spacer”, co-written by Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards. When released, it was a huge hit all over Europe and a top twenty hit in Australia and the UK.
British singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor has recorded the song for her 2020 album, “Songs From The Kitchen Disco” and released this as the lead track along with a promotional video.
But whose version is the best? ALCAZAR’s original or SOPHIE’s cover?
