Subsequent to last week’s #1 Breakout, Eric Kupper‘s 2019 rework of Judy Garland‘s classic “The Man That Got Away” notch the #41* Hot Shot Debut spot on this week’s edition of the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart.
The original Universal Music-released production was written and created for the 1954 version of the film A Star Is Born and has since enjoyed mainstream success as a classic show tune. The song’s 65 year old longevity made it a natural target for a modern touch-up by Eric Kupper, who has remixed three consecutive #1* Billboard dance charters for the Diana Ross classics “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough 2017”, “I’m Coming Out”/”Upside Down 2018” and “The Boss 2019.” from the same major record company. The revamped recording utilizes all aspects of the original 3-track master recording yet contains additions made by the world-renowned DJ/artist to create a modern day club culture classic!
Concurrent with the remixed effort’s release comes the film detailing the life and hard times of the famed actress/songstress who, toward the end of her career, battled a host of health, management, and finances woes. Watch a trailer for Judy below.
