What a lovely treat I woke up to this morning! BLONDIE have recorded the a Christmas song – WE THREE KINGS. The track is classic Blondie uptempo goodness! I also LOVE the video with them rocking out in the woods it has a UNION CITY BLUE kind of feel to it!
The band have a new album coming in 2010, so prepare for lots of Hard Candy posts! – Camille
I cannot wait to get my paws on the KYLIE LIVE IN NEW YORKalbum which features audio fromKYLIE MINOGUE‘s recent FOR ME, FOR YOU tour. The album is to be released digitally on December 14th. While you wait you can listen to the studio version of the SPEAKERPHONE mix by Steve Anderson used on the tour right here (sounds amazing!)
On December 12th the first half of the album will be available to preview on Kylie’s YouTube channel! What a nice early Christmas present! – Camille
You may have caught my excitement drenched tweet that Sade were coming back with a new album SOLDIER OF LOVE in February 2010! Now here I am back to rave again about the new single taken from the album. SOLDIER OF LOVE has surfaced, and we find SADE funking things up a bit with a marching band inspired track a tad reminiscent of recent RIHANNA!
I love that they jazzed it up a bit, my only worry is that this sounds a tad overproduced. They could maybe have left her voice to come though a little more in places with less production, but after 9 long years I’m thrilled to hear that glorious voice again and eagerly await the album! – Camille
Once again I find myself obsessing over the EURYTHMICS and revisiting their immense back catalogue. Tonight I’m re-obsessed with the classic I NEED A MAN from the SAVAGE album, that I consider one of their best.
The video was the second part of a series directed by Sophie Muller, The first being BEETHOVEN (I LOVE TO LISTEN TO)In which see Annie as a dowdy mentally ill housewife who sees visions of a child and a man in drag, before flipping out and trashing her house ( LOVE the cornflakes scene!) then ditching her dull life taking off in the middle of the day dressed to the nines.
This is where the I NEED A MAN video takes over Annie takes to the mic in a seedy night club roaring about how she she needs a real man ‘Don’t powder puff just keep it rough!.’ The following video is HEAVEN where Annie as the Diva is driven around town in a convertible and finds herself in all sorts of ‘celebrity situations’
A video was made for every song on SAVAGE and you should check them all out. This woman’s ability to convincingly play any role never ceases to amaze me! – Camille
Some of our favorite kids are releasing Christmas gifts! I think its great that some artist take up the tradition of the big red man, I kind of like the free aspect of it, lol. Free or not Happy Birthday Guadalupe is one hell of a view, expect what the track title implies, don’t look for any sleigh bells it just aint happening. It starts of with a hot stud waking up in Mexico on a Christmas morning , I have no idea why you would use a hot place (FYI he mentions its cold outside) for a Christmas song. I kind of get the vibe of a Tommy Lee Jones movie when he gets on that truck with all the day workers. If you love Angels and hot summer love on a Christmas morning you will love happy birthday Guadalupe by the KILLERS! – JAKE
All proceeds of happy birthday Guadalupe goes to the RED fight against Aids.
