Where the action is



Time once more, my pretties, for some of the newer music I have taken a shine to lately!

I am thoroughly sick and tired of waiting for the new Cher video to accompany her much-leaked single (from her first new studio album in a decade) Woman's World, so here is the fabulous Charlie Hides instead:



And here is the single itself (audio only). It's rather reminiscent of Strong Enough, but that's no bad thing...



To compensate for the distinct lack of Cher-herself-ness, how about a little twisted gay burlesque? Thought so. Here's this year's Steve Strange/Jobriath wannabee, the performance artist known as Garek - Save The Queen, indeed!



I know I have featured Parralox - and this song - before, but I could not resist re-posting when I saw their brand new video for Sharper Than A Knife. It's rather fab:



Thanks again to the lovely Henry over at Barbarella's Galaxy, I have discovered the brilliant new release from that rather electro-tastic Danish combo Electric Lady Lab (here with Kato). With an excellent video to boot, they're Alive:



Another welcome return for the ever-fabulosa Young Professionals, who have become a firm fixture in my musical tastes over the last couple of years. With its customary (but unfortunately this time very brief) cameo from our fave gender-bender Uriel Yekutiel, the video features a fashion parade of the "fire on ice" collection by French designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac. It's their new single, Be With You Tonight:



Saving the kitschiest for last - a discovery that has filled me with great joy, especially as we have a long-awaited week in Benalmadena to look forward to in the New Year! Here is another of those pound euro-shop-divas that Spain seems to specialise in, a sort of cross between Amanda LePore and Dana International, it's the enigma that is Yurena with her new single Go:



As ever, enjoy - and let me know what you think...

  2. And by the way, about TYP's new single, check Joe Dassin "Et si tu n'existais pas". Skip to 1m37 to hear the part they sampled.

  3. The Cher song is good, I have software now that converts YouTube into mp3 - evil really but I do still buy tons of music

  4. I obviously adore Cher, and Electric Lady Lab are always fabulous!

    The Garek one is not my cup of tea, but I like Parralox (especially the video - about time that song got a proper one!). Yurena is not bad and I like the one from The Young Professionals.

    Now, if we could get the actual Cher video!!!!
