Shake, Shake, Shake, Amour!

Well I've been away for a while (well not strictly away, just lazy) but I'm back for a while and bring with me something for all you Army Of Lovers fans. We all know what's happened to Alexender (currently creating more pop fabulousness with BWO) but what about the other members? Well today I'm focusing Michaela Dornonville De La Cour, she's the blonde one who came on board when La Camilla left and the quit as Camilla returned and in typical 'popstar quits group' fashion she embarked on her on solo career. Her first single Rumours and Lies unfortunately never even got to release stage (does anybody out there have it?) however she was a bit more successful with SOS (no, not an ABBA cover)...

...well at least it got a release.

Oh and there was all that affair with Emma Thompson business aswell!

Yes I Do!

It's true love (well if the boys thing falls through).

PS it's runs at OPSL (Optimum pop song length). Exactly 3 minutes and 30 seconds.

Sitting through movie credits isn't sad!

The music played over them RULES! I discovered many a gem during my days as lowly cinema worker.

Alisha's Attic - He's A Rebel

The demand was overwhelming.

Well you asked for it...

More Therese!

Therese - Dubby

Am I a page in your history?

Probably not.

Lost now in the sands of time but Vengaboy Denise (not the main girl. the other one) did go on to have a solo career, a short one but one nonetheless. And her cover of the Paula classic is, quite remarkably, not that bad.

Denise - Straight Up

You Lied!

This isn't the bright rosy world you promised Debbie. The future isn't electric, it's jazz-lite. What happened?

Debbie Gibson - Electric Youth

'I'm just a love machine...'

And Russia's greatest no less.

A history lesson, handclaps and an intro before the intro, what more could you want?

Boney M - Rasputin

See! There was a point to Donna Air.

...but my heart belonged to Jayni.

Crush - Jellyhead

The Nation Is Gripped!



Ok well there was a topic about her over on Popjustice. And if "Time" and the tracks she did with Stonebridge aren't justification enough for us to take her to our hearts then this should tip the balance and we should all worship at her temple. It's from the gem of her album "Acapulco" (which was only released in the far corners of Moldavia or somewhere) and it's an electro/disco/dance epic. It has it all, it's like Dead and Alive mixed with I Feel Love mixed with Le Freak and a little dash of Dannii.... It's like Light Years mixed with Fever mixed with Body Language....

Well what ever it is, it's ace!

Therese - I Need Somebody


For those of you wondering where I got the title for my blog then I ripped it off from the title of master of spite Luke Haine's pop project Black Box Recorder's third album. Why? For no other reason than I liked it.

So I thought it only fitting for my first song to come off said album (and no doubt you might be hearing more from it later). And I might as well start you off with quite possibly the greatest first two lines in song ever.

Black Box Recorder - GSOH Q.E.D

I always jump on these bandwagons late....

...but arrogance finally got the better of me and I've decided to create my own 'everyone should listen to what I like' pop blogs.

So enjoy, and if you don't I'll just pretend I don't care.
