5.0 out of 5 stars The Begining Of Electric Funk...............
On May of 1982 this 3 song single of Planet Pock was released and it became a new testament in the world of hip-hop. Today, Planet Rock still seems fresh to throw on at anytime of the day.

1.0 out of 5 stars not the CD I was expecting.
I was looking for the original version of this song. I did not like this CD it was a remake and sounded nothing like the original version. Purchased the correct CD from another seller.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Begining Of Electric Funk..............., May 18, 2000

This review is from: Planet Rock (Audio CD)
On May of 1982 this 3 song single of Planet Pock was released and it became a new testament in the world of hip-hop. Today, Planet Rock still seems fresh to throw on at anytime of the day. Planet Rock and "Rapper's Delight" By The Sugarhill Gang (1979) are still the most influencial raps songs of all time, even though Rapper's Delight sounds more like an old-school disco song for late 1979. But "Planet Rock" will always live on within anyone who likes hip-hop and electronic music. But enough of the history lesson, let's talk about this 3 song single. The first track is the vocal version of "Planet Rock" with a timing of 6 minutes and 25 seconds. The second track is a bonus beat of "Planet Rock" with a timing of 1 minute and 15 seconds. And of course my favorite the instrumental version of "Planet Rock" with a timing of 9 minutes and 16 seconds. If you ever remember the instrumental version, that's the one that has the robot giving a shout out to all the cities around world. "Rock Rock To The Planet Rock Don't stop, Brooklyn rocks to Planet Rock Don't Stop". You know the rest if you remember. Get this single it's a "best of genre" for a time when breakdancing was still part of the underground until 1984. Don't get the remixes of Planet Rock. Get this 3 song single or get the "Electric Funk" Vol I or the boxed set if you find it, it's such an 80's gem. Then get the 1983 single "Looking For The Perfect Beat", but that's another story.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Planet Rock" gets the bangin' re-mix treatment!, September 11, 2001
By 
This review is from: Don't Stop Planet Rock (Audio CD)
Man, I don't see how the previous reviewers could diss this CD by giving it such low ratings. The Magic Mike re-mix is my favorite version because of the James Brown breakbeats he looped on top of the main rhythm. And the original 12" vocal version plus Bonus Beats 1 is reason enough to buy this CD. This is the song that everybody was rockin' during the summer of 82'. Classic jam that made all the b-boys and b-girls start breakin' and poppin'!
It just brings back the early sound and feel of hip hop that I miss so much. None of this "bling bling" crap that's going around now. This song gave birth to the entire "electro funk" scene which in turn influenced other styles of dance music like hard house, techno, etc. Add this to your collection of old school CD's and call yourself a true hip hop head!!!

This review is from: Planet Rock (Audio CD)
This song has a great break beat. It is perfect if you like to dance in any way, especially break-dancing. It's well worth it!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is truly an electro-funk classic., January 14, 2000
By 
This review is from: Planet Rock (Audio CD)
This is the electro classic which has inspired so many other genres of electronica! Although "Planet Rock" actually has it's humble origins within the song "Trans Europe Express" by Kraftwerk, no one can doubt the impact that "Planet Rock" has made on producers/DJ's all over the world. Even the "Miami Bass" sound is a spinoff of the "Planet Rock" sound. It also heavily influenced the works of such techno godfathers like Kevin Saunderson and Juan Atkins. I've even heard a mix of "Planet Rock" done with the theme from the "Addam's Family" on an old mixtape from Germany back in 1984. Anyone starting to get into the electro sound should begin with this all time classic! I would also recommend any of the releases done by the Jonzun Crew, Man Parrish, and the Planet Patrol for the best electro around. Peace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your typical Oakenfold..., July 11, 2001
By 
Mikey "mikeymc" (Angleton, Texas United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Planet Rock Remixes (Audio CD)
Not that any work of Oakenfold is typical... With most Oakenfold CDs, when running neighborhood errands you find yourself sitting in the grocery store parking lot continuing to listen to it because you can't pull yourself away while housewives are walking by with their shopping carts looking at you funny. This CD, however, you can pull yourself away from it to go buy the cat some food and a gallon of milk so it's good for those neighborhood errands. It still gets 5 stars because with all the lame CDs that they have on sale I can't rate any work of Oakenfold with anything less.
