Just in case you forgot, over 17 years ago, Jimmy Eat World released their absolutely epic anthem titled “The Middle.” The song was a breakthrough hit for the band and it was a top five Billboard Hot 100 hit in 2002. The single has become so popular that it has been used in video games like Rock Band 2, Guitar Hero On Tour: Decades, and Guitar Hero World Tour. So it’s pretty safe to say that “The Middle” is a massive track that continues to leave fans wanting more.
Enter LUCA LUSH, who has made quite the name for himself through some absolutely insane remixes of artists like Post Malone & 21 Savage, and G-Eazy, Cardi B & A$AP Rocky. Today, he returns with his mind-blowing remix of Jimmy Eat World’s “The Middle.” So stream his epic remix, read what he had to say about the release, and grab the download below.
“I remember the feeling I had when I first heard this on the radio when I was a kid riding the bus home from middle school. That rush that you get when you hear a song and know instantly it’s gonna be on repeat until you know every word by heart. When my manager hit me up asking me to flip this I was ecstatic but also anxious about doing the song justice. I wanted to hit that sweet spot of nostalgia without simply re-hashing what was already there, as amazing as the original is. So after 3 different version I finally bottled that lightning of youth and innocence into this one. Makes me smile and feel like im a kid again scouring limewire for catchy emo music to burn on a mix cd for my crush who probably didn’t know my name anyway. I hope it makes you feel that way too.”
