We could go crazy together, lady

Sigh...I'm in love. Let me apologize in advance: I've tried to avoid posting horrible audio quality songs whenever possible, but every now and then, I can't help it...and, without any clue whatsoever as to when this song might actually come out, I have to do it again. You might know Mani Hoffman as the voice on the 2001 hit "Starlight" by the Supermen Lovers. Or you might know him as the voice on Jealousy's should-have-been-a-hit 2006 song "Lucy" (which, let's just say right now, there is a 95% chance of me posting tomorrow). Or you could be like me, and have never heard of him before now. Mani is a French singer with a soulful voice that's often put over the top of dance or disco-type tracks. Well, if we can judge from the songs on his MySpace, we should all be paying a lot more attention to him. I have literally no idea whether the first two songs on there are projects he's doing with someone else ("Keep On" was released as Fudge feat. Mani Hoffman and "Getaway" was released last year), but under whatever name, I cannot wait for them to come out. As in, if anyone has even the slightest clue, please let me know!

Crazy (Low Quality)--this song needs to come out yesterday, because I need a good version of it now. Think soul, disco, electro, funk, and dance all mixed up in one--or just think brilliant pop. Really pop. Pop so great I was addicted to it from the first listen and was dying to know more about Mani and desperate to know when it was coming out. I never got the love or even like of Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy" (given that everyone else in the world seems to at least appreciate it, I'm probably just crazy), but I wouldn't object to this "Crazy" doing well on the charts at all, though if it ever got a UK release I imagine it'd struggle to make its way into the top 40 and then sit pretty around the #35 slot for a week before dropping out--but it would deserve so, so much better. Be prepared for me to constantly praise this track--apologies in advance if you hate it, but I adore it.

I have literally no idea what this song is from or when it's going to be released, but you can buy the Supermen Lovers' album The Player here (physical) or here (digital). If you know anything about this song--if it's out already, when it will come out if it's not, what name it'll be under, anything--please let me know.

Next up: as I said, in all likelihood, Jealousy's "Lucy," because it's brill as well.

Oh that is ACE. This is the kind of thing that gets played in all the clubs here in Oz, so I'll see if any of my dance-loving friends know anything about it/him.

Glad you like it!

That would be fantastic--thanks, Adem! It might be another Jealousy track, maybe Jealousy feat. Mani Hoffman or just Jealousy...something like that...or it could not be ;)

I'd never heard of it until just now (well, until yesterday), but it's great! Ah, memories...or lack thereof ;)
