If you've come up with a club cut with chart crossover potential, and you're only going to slap two actual words over the instrumental, you may as well make those words the name of a superstar, right? And so Duck Sauce - a.k.a DJ duo A-Trak and Armand Van Helden - have titled this Boney M-sampling monster after the Oscar-winning, Grammy-grabbing, Tony-nabbing... OK, enough ego massage for now.
What's more, 'Barbra Streisand' actually kinda suits the track, a sassy, no-messin' disco-house dazzler which tips its trilby in the direction of Studio 54 circa 1979 - happily enough, just when Babs was having her own dancefloor moment with 'The Main Event' / 'Fight' and 'No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)'. Lack of lyrics notwithstanding, it's deliriously catchy, endlessly danceable and ultimately so uplifting that it could even cheer you up after watching the denouement of The Way We Were. Well, almost.
