Bingo Players – “Cry (Just a Little)” – (2011)

Bingo Players is a Dutch house duo and this is one of their more popular songs. Not to sound like “one of those people” but I happen to really like this a lot more than Flo Rida’s sampled version. The chorus from this track is the only good part of his song, unfortunately. A top ten in the Netherlands and on the U.K. dance charts, this was a commercial success in Europe. However, straight house tracks don’t get much airplay on U.S. mainstream radio and sampling it into a pop/hip-hop song is about the only way to spread kickass dance music like this to a wide audience in the States. Oh, and to prove nothing is totally original, that catchy chorus was lifted from a song called “Piano in the Dark” by Brenda Russell from 1988.
