There must be something in the stars with the year 2008. Not just Cyndi Lauper, Paula Abdul and SMiLe.dk, but Lara Fabian has decided it’s time to sing again. New classical-inspired pop album is to be released by the end of the year. The album is recorded entirely in Qubec and as for song choice, quoting Fabian; “ I’ve never sung these kinds of songs, certainly not in an entire album and not in this kind of arrangement…” I pray that it won’t be one of those techno-disco albums… We already have Madonna, Kylie and Britney.
A fan meet & greet is set to be held in Belgium in October and then Paris.
Below is a clip of Fabian performing Je Suis Malade live
After more than 2 decades in the music business, Cyndi Lauper continues to surprise us with her music and performances.
Check out her brand-new song “Into The Night Life,” an electro-driven dance stomper taken from her forthcoming new album “Bring Ya To The Brink.” The singer explains in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that the song title was inspired by Henry Miller’s book Into the Night Life that “inspired Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s A Coney Island of the Mind, which inspired me to describe the images of nightlife here in NYC.”
The track was produced by savvy soundboard wizard Peer Astrom who previously worked with Britney Spears and Madonna. It is good to get some hot fresh material from the singer after she previously released cover and acoustic albums.
Fuerzabruta, the wet and wild who were also seen in an episode of America’s Next Top Model, is going to launch their “Boy’s Night” on May 16th. Water, craziness, techno music and the mylar overhead swimming stage all guaranteed! Boys Night will “feature remixed scenes and choreography- putting the men of Fuerzabruta in the water and at the fore.”
Who will ever forget The Cranberries’ Zombie from the album No Need to Argue in 1994? he single has sold 2 million copies alone, and the song, since its release in late 1994, has been performed on every live tour. It’s still one of the most popular songs today.
Bad Girl by Madonna, the third single from her 1992 album Erotica. Many fans regard it as one of Madonna’s best ballads. Negative reception of the video criticizes the topic of misogynistic murder of women as too extreme for a pop video that is about a doomed relationship, highlighting America’s obsession with serial killers and violence. It was certainly the time when smoking was still cool.
Say you’ll be there, yet another one of Spice Girl’s single that was certified platinum. Released in 1996 and hit the world’s top charts by 1997. Written by the Spice Girls themselves, with the help of Jonathan Buck and Eliot Kennedy. The girls are dressed as techno-warriors with the style of futuristic high-tech ninjas, marking the pop culture of film during the late 90s.
Song 2, possibly the most well known song Blur has ever recorded. Released in 1997, still remains their biggest hit to date. I think we can all remember the “WOO HOO” from this song right? (If not, you simply did not exist in the 90s) It has been used in countless occasions and advertisements. WOO HOO!
Sarah Mclachlan – I will remember you. The song first appeared in 1995 as a sound track for a movie, but it wasn’t a hit until she released a live version of the song in 1999. A bit late, but still made it to a 90s hit.
