Everybody's dancing on the disco floor

Blog links! I forgot to mention these in the last post, so I'll do it now, though I know when you list a bunch of links at once, people are less likely to visit them.

So many blogs I love seem to be disappearing, which makes it all the more exciting when the opposite happens--both Poptext and Popsound have come back! Poptext specializes in an incredibly vivid writing style and Popsound features loads of pop artists you've probably never heard of before. I was reading Popsound back before I probably even knew what Melodifestivalen was, or at least before I cared about it, as my first introduction to Fame's "Vindarna Vander Oss" was actually through a cover of it posted on that site--and am so glad to see it back. It's currently featuring several Dutch artists, including a great super poppy song by Chipz--as the song says, "Chipz goes disco!"

If you're into Eurovision, Londonboy79 is a must-read--really funny--and it's not just Eurovision, either; the blog has already written about that UK TV show about Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Or you could just go for the pictures of Dima Koldun (though he's not to my taste).

I love the analysis of spam messages going on over at My Citrus Sarcophagus, and the "Chalk and Cheese" features (I don't know why everyone on American Idol acted so confused when Simon used that phrase--the first time I'd heard it, I thought it was pretty self-explanatory), where two seemingly incredibly different artists are compared, are always interesting.

Nordic Noise loves its female singer-songwriters and loves its Nordic pop; check it out if you'd like to hear some more sophisticated forms of pop from countries like Iceland, Norway, and Finland.
