This Friday, the remake of the classic 1984 Kevin Bacon movie, Footloose, opened in theaters.  Four songs were remade for this new adaptation.  Below are two clips of the movies title song.  The first features Kenny Loggins, and the second with country singer, Blake Shelton.  Which one do you prefer?

    Kenny Loggin is my favorite song from this film hands down.

    This was so fun to watch all the videos. Hmm! I still like the first films soundtrack.

    these songs bring back so many memories! I remember singing “Let’s Hear it For the Boy” all the time. I was only in elementary school and had no idea it was in this film until now! haha! 🙂

    And well, I love Heart, so Ann Wilson doing “Almost Paradise”–no brainer!

    ITA about Loggins. I don’t mind Shelton’s, but I love the 80s and Loggin’s rocked it. I also like the choreography better in the original. ’84 was dancing and this one seems more bump and grind. Eh…

    Ok, off to listen again! 🙂

    (ps. tag!)

      Oh Bonnie, how much aerosol did you use that day and is it just me, or do you start doing grapevines and leg curls to that song!? 🙂 HAHAHAHA!

        And yes, I am completely biased. Original is wuh-haaaaay better. Here’s the new “Almost Paradise”:
