ModMusic: Taylor Dayne Remixed

There's probably no performer who deserves a renaissance more than Taylor Dayne, the New York-born R&B diva. Her rap sheet is impressive: three global #1 hits and three Grammy nominations to match, with multiple successes in the recording studio, worldwide tours, movie roles and Broadway triumphs. So what happened to her in the early 90's? Was she a victim of the hysteria for grunge and guitars? Was she supplanted by Mariah Carey? Was she too club-oriented for mainstream tastes?

Who knows...and who cares, since we still love her booming voice and legendary stage presence. As we await Taylor's comeback EP (due later this year), we've been revisiting her classics like "Love Will Lead You Back," "Don't Rush Me," "I'll Always Love You" and "With Every Beat of my Heart". And if you think she's a victim of her era, we suggest you listen to the T-Empo Mix of her first #1, "Tell It To My Heart", from her 1996 Greatest Hits collection. Prepare to shake your moneymaker.
