My Exit: Cori Irwin

Tonight's My Exit DJ, Cori Irwin

It's Monday, time for another My Exit. Here's tonight's guest DJ, who will be sharing her favorite music at 8 pm on WEXT.

This week, a redux show -- new twists on some great classics.

Cori Irwin from Albany. Dancer/choreographer, draftsperson, cat lover, tea drinker.

How would you describe your musical taste?
I would say that I like anything I can dance to, anything I can sing or rap along with and Tool. And remakes.

A few songs from Cori's show:

"Tyrone" - My Morning Jacket
Here we have a different vocalist -- male when the original is female -- as well as a different genre. The original by Erykah Badu is the only original during the hour and I thought I'd lead with it because these two are a prime example of the contrast created by the remake.

"I Can't Go For That" -- The Bird and The Bee
I am in love with this album. I even considered playing just this album for the entire hour. What's interesting is that they chose to keep the lyrics and arrangement exactly as they are in the Daryl Hall & John Oates original.

"It's a Man's Man's, Man's World" - Glee cast
I heard this one before I listened to the original and while I like the original, what I love about the remake is the vocalist. Again, the lyrics and arrangement are just as they are in the original by James Brown.

"Young Folks" - Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra
Here we have everything I love about a remake: they've completely switched up the vocalist, arrangement, and even the genre. The original was the first single by Peter, Bjorn and John.

You can hear Cori's My Exit show tonight at 8 on 97.7 or at
