When we ranked the 50 biggest tracks of 2011, “Calling” came in at a very respectable 11th place. The Ingrosso-Alesso track, with its stadium-sized synths and euphoric drop, triggers so many 2011 memories for the Astronauts – from Electric Zoo to SHM at MSG to countless club nights in between. Now, the vocal version of “Calling” is finally out on Ingrosso’s Refune Records, and we have no doubt it will end up on our 2012 list as well. We weren’t initially convinced that the track needed a vocal – and we still may not be – but it sounds damn good either way. Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic belts out soaring, sing-a-long lyrics that are just simple enough to stay stuck in our heads for days. Have a listen below and let us know what you think!
