December 15, 2007,
For all of the dancefloor fairy dust cast by Cascada's delectable output—"Everytime We Touch," "Truly Madly Deeply," "Miracle"—the German Eurodance trio of Natalie Horler, DJ Manian and Yann Pfeiffer (this year's World Music Award winner as that nation's best-selling act) reaches a new inspirational peak with a cover of ubiquitous "What Hurts the Most," which in 2006 took Rascal Flatts to No. 1 at country and AC and No. 6 on The Billboard Hot 100. Like "Everytime We Touch," which propelled Cascada into top 40's top 10 in '06, this track is remixed into a frothy uptempo anthem, complete with requisite percussive thump and an exulted vocal (with 12 mixes in all) that leaves the lyric's potential heartbreak in the dust. The first single from upcoming sophomore full-length "Perfect Day" has already topped out at No. 5 in Sweden. Wouldn't it be wondrous if American programmers renewed their vow in 2008 to put variety on the airwaves—or do we really need a fifth entry in the top 10 from T-Pain? —Chuck Taylor
