FROM DJ PAUL V. “As I was enjoying a seriously gorgeous day here in Los Angeles, I got turned on to a new mashup that just seemed to match it perfectly. The vocals reminded me how much said band were synonymous with sunshine and Southern California, back in the 70’s. And the music only added another seductive layer to the whole thing. The band is The Eagles, who had their second #1 single with One Of These Nights, 35 years ago in July 1975. Now, the music is a little tricky, as it’s The Police’s Every Breath You Take, as it was sampled by Puff Daddy & Faith Evans on 1997’s I’ll Be Missing You. Thus, big props to the OC’s Voicedude for this taste of the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s in one lovely, easy breezy mashup.”
