Singer and drummer Phil Collins wowed a whole generation of kids (plus their parents) with “Strangers Like Me,” one of the hit songs from the Disney animated feature film ‘Tarzan.’ The song would go on to make it to number ten on the U.S. Billboard Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart. Now, Jonathan Young and Caleb Hyles are taking it on.
Both Young and Hyles have their fair share of hard rock or techno versions of your favorite Disney songs to great acclaim. Their take on this song is just as good. They bring that rock sound, but maintain the spirit of the song, learning about someone who is different. Their talent was spot on and definitely showed their respect for the source material. As a fan of the movie, I really enjoyed it and hope they cover more songs from the Tarzan soundtrack.
As for the music video, it was typical of Jonathan Young. Nothing fancy, just the two of them singing away into their mics. It would cut from Young to Hyles as they sang their lyrics before cutting to the other. There was a funny gag reel of Caleb Hyles trying, and failing, to reach certain notes of the song. That was something of a treat.
