Eyes that flash like streetlights

Just a comparatively quick post today. With Stand By For... released, the Måns Zelmerlöw updates may have slowed down around here, but that doesn't mean I've stopped enjoying his music (or stopped following news about him, for that matter). With the release of his new single, for example, I had to buy the remixes that accompanied it. To be honest, I haven't noticed a difference between two of them yet, which could mean that I've not had the patience to listen to two long remixes back to back and compare them and so haven't noted differences or that the store I bought them from has accidentally provided one song when they should have provided two. Genreal mislabelling is a possibility as well, but whatever version it is, I like it (though it's not necessarily my favorite version--I haven't properly listened to the others yet).

Work Of Art (Da Vinci) [Ali Payami Club Remix]--while the original has drawn comparisons to Andreas Johnson and Mika, this remix--which is a longer version, clocking in at a little over six and a half minutes--makes it more housey. Surprisingly (at least for me), it works well in this style; it's a catchy song no matter what and I now love the original, but I could maybe even see myself listening to this version more. If you don't like any house songs, this one's not going to change your mind, but it's well-done, fun, and, like the original, catchy.

To buy Måns Zelmerlöw's single "Work Of Art (Da Vinci)," which comes with the original song and four remixes, go here (physical) or here (digital).

I was going to say more about this, but maybe I'll do that tomorrow; for now, I'll just mention that you can hear thirty second clips of all the songs on the new Click Five album here.

Next up: an American singer.

i'm not really a huge fan of remixes, i'm not really sure why. This one DOES work really well for Mans however. He's not the most "dance" artist out there and I was a little worried it would come across forced (like when Faith Hill got successful over here on the back of dance remixes of her songs, and then had to perform one on tv looking highly uncomfortable!!) but no - i am appreciating this.

I'm avoiding click five however, i think i will wait til the full release is out ;P

BWAHAHA I remember those Faith Hill remixes. I remember because I have distant memories of being drunk and dancing to them every Saturday night for about 6 months...

Yesterday I finally got my hands on MF-2007 DVD just to discover that the first letter of Mans' last name is pronounced as "S". "Sell more love".

Adem: mega sigh...

Aleera, that photo...goodness! He's a Swedish singer who was on the Swedish version of Pop Idol.

I didn't even know there were Faith Hill dance remixes! I did listen to the clips, though I'm not sure whether I was hoping they'd assuage my fears or trying to steel myself for disappointment...

Really? I've definitely been pronouncing (well, mentally pronouncing; there aren't too many conversations around here where his name comes up ;) ) it more like a "z"! I still don't think I've got my mind around "Jimmy Jansson" actually being "Yimmy Yansson."
