> Move to a Different Sound

Teddybears - Different Sound [.m4a]
This shouldn't be my cup of tea but after hearing it at the gym time after time it gets addictive and stuck in my head. It's called 'Different Sound' and that's precisely what it is too. Is it Pop? Rock? Electro? Punk? Or all sort of genres? All I know is I love it.

Paola - Above the Candystore
Speaking of the Teddybears made me think of Paola. They once recorded the amazing "Yours to Keep" together in 2000, it became a rather big hit in Sweden. Paola released her debutalbum in 2001 and it includes many great songs, like the single "Above the Candystore" which is brilliant. You should check out her album if you're into Robyn. The album was way ahead of its time, it's the sort of music Robyn and Kleerup are having major success with NOW, seven years later.

Therese - Obsession
This is a demo that was meant for Victoria Beckham's unreleased second album. I can't really imagine Sticky Vicky singing this but it suits Therese oh-so-well, don't you think? A good song, definitely not her best, but I get Kylie and Dannii-vibes. I do wish Therese would get her album out sometime soon or at least join The Attic full-time.

That's it for today. I have something fun coming up before the weekend!! :-)

Thanks for all those song. Didn't know Therese recorded this song. Did you know it was later covered by Nouveau Riche? I prefer their version though. hope she'll be back this year too, she's so ace!

Yeah, it's interesting to hear Therese here! Thanks for this--I really like it. I echo your last sentence, Alex, even though I'd never thought of the last option until now--I want her to be a worldwide star, but I'd settle for a new album.

I almost bought a Teddybears album once--I keep thinking I need to hear more from them. I know I'll be interested in hearing their next single, whenever they get around to it. Thanks for "Different Sound."

(Oh, and I've got loads of love for Paola, too. It's funny--I was just talking about her to someone recently.)
