Yesterday: better known as the "in case you missed it" column
January is a notoriously slow month if you work in the music industry. So, let's start with a couple "in case you missed it" moments.
There is a great You Tube cover of "Gimme More", by Marie Digby. Apparently a week can't go by without a Britney related blurb in my column...
What, that was not the pop music that is currently getting you weak in the knees? Well then you must be searching everywhere for the Spice Girls greatest hits collection. Get the four-disc version on Amazon.co.uk/ for what converts to about $60. It's been out in the UK since November. Perfect Beat can take their $100 price tag, and [ comment not fit for print ] !
Pop is still the word of the day. The pop appeal of CSS album "Cansei De Ser Sexy", and more importantly the guilty pleasure that is the song "Alcohol," would not have come to light without a commerical that featured their song "Music Is My Hot, Hot Sex." To think, the album sneaked unnoticed on to store shelves in mid-2006!
All that pop music has my blood running fast! Better tell you about the great dance tracks that are out. Cascada's new album is not out in the US, but if you head over to www.robbinsent.com/ you can pick up the 13-track CD single to the enchanting "What Hurts the Most."
I gotta leave you with an update on Janet's comeback single "Feedback". Well, the remixes are making the rounds now and it's all about the mammoth DJ Alexander & Mark VDH Mix. It is anthem from stem to stern and is comparable to Raphi Rosario in peak form.
