Jaymes Young – What is love


It has been 20years since Haddaway first publicly asked “what is love?”. While the question remains the same, Jaymes Young has taken a much softer heart-felt approach in his delivery.

Young has stripped the track bare, leaving only vocals, guitar and a bellowing bass which sustains in the distance. The limited use of instruments and musical confusion leads to assume heart break and venerability for Young. Almost as though he has already admitted relationship defeat and is pleading for mercy – as apposed Haddaway’s approach to heart break, which consists of a leather heavy 90’s rave in a Transylvanian mansion, trance dancing and possibly a night at the Roxbury.
