With this amazing new remix of his legendary hit song “Imagination,” Belouis Some takes you back to the heyday of 80s music with a modern touch. This reworking of the iconic song will be available on June 14th, 2024 as a part of the much awaited “Orchestral Eighties” project.

This is 80’s pop revived in “Imagination” by Belouis Some. With its captivating sound, catchy beat, and groovy tune, this song will have you dancing from the first minute onward. You’ll be bopping your head, thumping your feet, and helplessly swaying to the beat of this pop masterwork because of its groovy vibe. Personally, I found myself standing, doing funny funky dance moves. I lost control with hands in the air and body moving uncontrollably to the rhythm. Let me put this song into perspective for you; imagine you take the wonders of pop and then you perfectly blend it with the irresistible groove of funk music, and then you lace it with the rhythmic flow of the bass. Oh heck yes, that’s what this song is.

What was created was a funk-pop masterpiece with a steady but evolving groove, energetic upbeat and midtempo rhythm, with an infectious melody, truly a sonic wonder. So now let’s break down this song a bit so you get the gist of the blissful journey you’re about to embark on. The song opens with the rhythmic pulse of the drum base-kick, hitting double notes, and at first, this happened at intervals in the beginning giving the song an anthemic start. Together with this anthemic drum base-kick were the infectious strings of the synth-guitar bringing a unique energy to the song, the underlying sounds of sweet charming piano sounds, beautiful clashing of percussion sounds, and a melodic collision of diverse sophisticated synth sounds all coming together to create the very first core of this masterpiece.

From this very opening wonder, I was already drawn into a world of energetic wonders. At the 0:18 timestamp, the sounds were heightened by the inclusion of the bass guitar, and oh my days, was it interesting. The bass guitar sounds brought a thick texture to the entire song with its depth in nature and majestic elegance. It added richness to the song, bringing out that funk energy with a steady rhythmic pattern that was consistent. Finally, at the 0:26 timestamp, the voice of the living legend himself, Belouis Some, graced my ears with its rich and warm quality. His voice had a soothing yet energetic feel; it was both powerful and calm, carrying the lyrics with so much grace and precision.

With his voice, the song gains its full form, cruising with so much groove, funk, and energetic feel. Shortly after I heard the sexy and soothing voice of Belouis, I heard the voice of the backup singers. The introduction of the backup singers was like a revelation as they were first introduced, creating paradisical vocal harmonies and melodies that elevated the song’s feel. Shortly after, they began to serve as a complement and response vocal to Belouis. The backup vocals were angelic, soothing, and calm. It was like a reverie, truly beautiful.

As the song progressed, it didn’t let up for a single moment. It maintained its infectious energy from start to finish. The funky bass riffs and consistency kept the song progressively evolving, while the synth-guitar strings danced with so much freedom and happiness, lacing the song with a unique groove. The inclusion of electrifying guitar strings during the course of the song also elevated the song’s entire energy. During the progression of the song, trumpet-like sounds also emerged, adding warmth and richness to the entire instrumental makeup. The lacing of the piano melodies was also consistent. Everything about this song was truly magnificent; it was a true work of art, a masterwork of musical creation, a reverie of sound.

You want to groove? You want to feel freedom? You want to feel the thrill of life? Yeah, this song is for you without a single doubt. In fact, this song is for the world at large.
