I'm gonna have to disagree with the guy aboves assessment of the performance of "You Are In My System". Robert's is so mechanical and cold, while Mic Murphy of The System's version has a passion to it. You can tell he really meant it, when he said, "You Are In My System". This always bothered me that Robert would be the one remembered for this great piece of soulful/electronic heaven. But,yeah Mic won on this one. Robert did a decent job, i'll give him that.

Sometimes covers are better than their original version. This remake of The System by Robert Palmer is an excellent example of this exception to the general rule. First, the sound is BIG and much more powerful than on the original 12" (big up to Dominique Blanc-Francard, the French sound guru). But the real difference lies in the vocal. Listening to Robert Palmer re-interpretating this classic, you simply understand the gap between an OK singer and a real great voice. An underestimated masterpiece of dance music that should be played in real clubs, for sure!
