Emeralds are a girl's best friend

Congratulations to the lovely Caro Emerald, Dutch diva of jolly jazzy cabaret numbers, whose second album The Shocking Miss Emerald has debuted at Number 1 in the UK album charts.

I adored her first album Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor, and I look forward to hearing the new one. She's a sassy lady - her persistence in getting her music noticed, long before getting a record deal (she was championed by both Jools Holland and Terry Wogan), is the stuff of legend, and she still retains full artistic control over her productions. Here are a few of her choons to cheer us up.

And the new one, Tangled Up:

She's wonderful!

  1. She is fab and I Loved the videos.

    1. Yet another diva to add to our collection... Jx

  2. thanx for making such a glorious entry about Caro, one of the most fun Dutch artists right now.
    But now on to serious things: couldn't we make a €-vision trade deal?
    As we cannot vote for our own country anyway, why not support our friendly neighbours?
    I've always been a great fan of Bonny Tyler, and her voice only seems to have matured like fine wine, so my vote is final (Denmarks song is ok, but way too much in the old eurovision tradition, with a flute and loads of drums, NL and UK and Norway have chosen for great ballads; Norway has the best 2013 dj-mix, but they've won more than enough already recently).
    Could you please vote for our song? by Anouk: http://youtu.be/YGM5RNrebbM
    She also has a gorgeous insurance company commercial on NL tv tight now:

    1. Intriguing prospect, but I never get round to voting on any of them - we're usually too busy partying to get votes in on time!


      PS Thanks for the kind comments about my blog - I will check yours out.
