I don't think the synth tracks and drum machine are what's wrong with that song. If it was played with more conventional instruments, I think it would still be cheesy. But if Superstition
or I Wish
were played with electronic instruments, they would still be awesome, imo (with the concession that nothing could top the originals). As an example, here is a remix of Superstition
So, while it has decidedly electronic sound, it's still really good, because at the root of it, Superstition
is just a way better song than I Just Called To Say I Love You
