Some of the songs I am currently obsessing over and playing on repeat:
Robot Boy & Will You Remember Me Tomorrow by Margaret Berger
I haven’t procured the entire Margaret Berger album yet but I can safely say it will be amazing if these two tracks are anything to go by, and they already had a lot to live up to with the first single Samantha and the fabulous album title, Pretty Scary Silver Fairy. The album is available on iTunes for those of you who don’t prefer your apples green and juicy.
Happy Ending by Mika
You’d think it would be pretty hard to beat Relax (Take It Easy) or Grace Kelly, but I personally think he’s managed it with this acetastic gospelly track currently available for free download from he of excellent taste, Arjan Writes. Mika deserves to be a huge star and I’m very much looking forward to being able to say I was a fan from the beginning.
I Think We’re Alone Now by Girls Aloud
A strange sense of the cyclicality of the pop world as the Aloud cover Tiffany, who did of course cover (rather unpleasantly as well) one of their tracks on Hit Me Baby One More Time. I hope this means their next release will be Comin’ Atcha by Cleopatra! Anyway, it’s not a bad version, certainly could be much worse, but a bit too much of an obvious choice of a track to cover. Still, a great band and a great song, I’m not complaining.
