Cascada - Evacuate The Dancefloor

If you go back a couple of years to 2006 and turn on the radio, you'll probably hear Cascada's hit single, "Everytime We Touch".  That was the song that kickstarted Cascada's career in the US.  Currently, Cascada is climbing the charts with "Evacuate The Dancefloor".  I find that this time around, Cascada's trying to grow off of Lady GaGa's success.  Everyone knows Lady GaGa's hit "Just Dance", right.  Well, "Evacuate The Dancefloor" sounds so similar that it's impossible not to notice.  The songs lyrics and structure imitate "Just Dance" all the way to the sound-alike bridge.  This may not ruin the song, but it sure is distracting.  If Lady GaGa hadn't of dropped the entire "Fame, Fortune, and Party" image, "Evacuate The Dancefloor" wouldn't be as successful.  The overall production of the song may be different, but the composition is the same.  Unless your a crazed Cascada fan, I would skip this song and download "Just Dance" instead.


  1. I have both Just Dance and Evacuate the Dancefloor. They both, despite their similarity in sound, gave me such an addiction for Pop music and its many elements.
