Come on, dance for me

Just another quick post today, guys, sorry! And another singer you probably haven't heard of before: Pauline Högberg. She, like yesterday's featured singer, was from Fame Factory's third season. I'm not sure what exactly she's done after the show, though I do know she released at least one single: the song I'm posting backed with her version of No Angels' "Feel Good Lies" (spelled in that way, I believe, on her version). For the record, I like her version of the song and almost posted it instead of this, but ultimately went for the song I figured fewer people would have in any form. Interesting pop fact that's only slightly related: the sets for the music video for that song as sung by No Angels and the video for German boy band Part Six's "Drive So Far" bear a pretty strong resemblance--it seems pretty likely they are the same.

Doin' It--a mid-tempo pop song with a little bit of attitude to it, but it's sold in a cute way. Catchy, too, of course. I should really have more to say here, shouldn't I? But I don't--just that it's good. Just listen to it--I think you'll get it.

To get this song, you can check Swedish eBay for a single of it (I guess you could check regular eBay, too, but you're far more likely to to find it the other way) or buy Best of Fame Factory from here (physical) or here (digital).

Next up: maybe a Fame Factory winner.

Ooooh PG!!!

This song was originally by a girlband called hi5 from Greece!

And then the Swedish Velvet did it!

Ooo, nice, Robpop! Velvet's album came out in 2006, though, so I figure Pauline's was first, but I had no idea about Hi5! I'd forgotten Velvet's, too--thanks for the reminder! You know I love that stuff :D

I'd so wish Pauline would make a comeback or at least participate in Idol. She was great!

I will be doing my stomach crunches in the gym to this song tomorrow.

Just thought you'd like to know.

I feel like Pauline's hair is what Britney's trying to go for with her greasebag weave. Alas....

Paul said...

stomach crunches? Grease bag weave? Bobby pops? How do you top all of those things? One hasn't the foggiest so i will randomly impart that the hairspray composers are doing the musical episode of ugly betty. Oh. My. Days

I'd love to hear more from her! Never got to see her perform, but I like everything I've heard her do so far.

This song would be great for that, wouldn't it? It'd never occurred to me! Glad I could be helpful ;)

Hasn't Britney been looking at Rihanna? Short hair can be great!

Really? And yeah, I have no idea how you'd beat all that ;)
