Recently, Val Young’s 1985 club hit “If You Should Ever Be Lonely” has resurfaced on dance music radio station playlists across the USA. :D Upon doing an online search, I discovered that Val’s song was remade twice. Do any of you know the song or its remakes? What do you think?

Reina , 2004 (listen to snippet) ( http://mfile.akamai.com/3164/wm2/muze.download.akamai.com/2890/us/uswm2/571/534571_1_06.asx)

Original Val Young version from 1985 without doubt...fantastic groove.
I think the REAL MCCOY version is a good attempt though.
Hate the most recent recording by REINA...ugh...seemed to have killed off the essence of the song.

Even Mariah Carey jumped on the bandwagon, in a way. Here's the "If You Should Ever Be Lonely" remix of Heartbreaker":
