A beautiful song with a very interesting video. I love how passers by react to the camera and add to production of the video. Didn’t know too much about Anna Vandas so I went onto the old Google machine to find out more.
She is from Vancouver, Canada, loves painting, music, dance and Jesus !
Her voice is haunting but brilliant and her songs have an extra quality to them than your average folk acoustic pop singer. One to watch for 2009.
When I was very young, my dad had probably the best collection of records. He had hits from the Beatles, The Overlanders and Sonny and Cher. On many occaisions I was fascinated by the old gramaphone playing multiple 7 inch records using the ‘record changer’. One of the artists that captured me in those days was the duo Sonny & Cher. Two songs of their bring back the tears to my eyes and thanks to the wonders of the internet, I can share them with you.
I Got You Babe
Baby Don’t Go
Baby Don’t Go is crying out for a cover. This is a hit waiting to be revived.
Another fabulous song from the Hed Kandi compilation is this brilliant song which proves that there is no language barrier when it comes to a good tune. Demanda is performed by Rasmus Faber featuring Clara Mendes. Believe it or not Rasmus Faber is from Sweden and has a few brilliant songs on his myspace page which is located at: http://www.myspace.com/rasmusfaber.
Check his stuff out it is very good and relaxing and that’s what we need to calm down our nerves in these turbulent times.
Also check out the lovely Clara Mendes who is Brazilian but lives in Stockholm http://www.myspace.com/claramendes
She is hot, sexy and absolutely fantastic. Brazilian music has always interested me since watching Sergio Mendes on TV way back in the day and Clara Mendes is one to watch. She has a balanced diet but sometimes eats “nuddles” and smokes Marlboro. I defy anyone to listen to her stuff and not fall in love with it.
Here is a juicy slice of old skool house music which has been borrowed and remixed a few times over the years including a fabulous new version by Cloudburst ft Culture Girl. One thing I really like about early 90s dance music is the catchy piano riffs. The original by Congress featuring Lucinda Sieger was released way back in 1991 and today we are so spoiled by modern production and autotune especially. Not the best vocal take but it’s still a classic.
Melbourne’s singing sensation Gabriella Cilmi is the new princess of pop after winning 6 out of 6 nominations at last nights ARIA Awards (the Australian version of the BRITS). She won Highest Selling Single, Best Pop Release, Breakthrough Artist (single), Best Female Artist, Single of the Year, & Breakthrough Artist (album).
We are very happy for her and all the team who worked tirelessly to make this happen. Well done Gabriella.
Enjoy the video of Gabriella performing “Sweet About Me” the song that made her a huge success.
For those of you who were too young to experience this fantastic song. we decided to tip it again. There is nothing better than house music with real music, house music that will be played in 10, 20, 30 years time. House music that will shut up the rock boys and indie girls who think dance music is all noise. M People were masters at creating this, partly due to the fact they were real musicians. Enjoy it !
This one has been getting a lot of spins on the Myhotmusic jukebox and is an example of pure British soul and house music made back in the day when house music was in its infancy and arguably at its most creative. This week on Myhotmusic we are going to revive the melodic, sexy and funky house music which seems completely lost in the sea of electro mediocrity that we seem to be force fed by talentless producers and DJs. Don’t get me wrong there are many good electro tunes out there but the trend now especially here in Australia is to go for style over substance and there are a lot of so called cool records out there that sound diabolically tripe and banal. Anyway rant over. We are on a mission here.
