See me livin' like a movie

I'm going to be doing some traveling for the next two weeks. I'm expecting at least some of the places I'm visiting to have Internet access, so I don't expect it to be an entirely post-free two weeks, but posts may very well be more sporadic (though if I get some big chunks of time I'll write up some stuff and set it to automatically post).

I know I keep promising to write about Kalomoira and Kate Ryan, and I really will--hopefully the downtime that goes along with traveling will coerce me into doing that--but for now, here's a super-quick post with a song from Belgian singer Natalia, an Idol runner-up who's made herself far more than that in her home country. I've posted a few of her songs before, but none from her most recent album, so here's "Glamorous," a slightly funky, slightly urban, but mainly just pop-with-synths song (though don't let the title and the mention of synths make you expect something that sounds musically [ignoring the lyrics for a moment] like the Fergie song). Besides the horns, the song's effects sound sort of sound like the inner workings of a machine put into the service of a catchy mid-tempo pop song). It was the album's second single and released back in 2007.

To buy Natalia's third album, Everything & More, go here (physical) or here (digital).

Next up: Kalomoira or Kate Ryan, hopefully!

Do you love the Kalomira album?? I think it's a very strong record! Looking forward to your post on her.

Ooo you are so Lady Jack Kerouac with your travelling! Have fun - i love the cover shot of Natalia. Everytime i am near a fan, i can't look gorgeous cos i scrunch my eyes up at the wind!

Have safe and happy travels, doll! And nice Kerouac reference, Paul -- the Letters Of Allan Ginsberg just came my way.

I love Natalia, got all her albums.
Don't know whether you posted the album version, or not but there is also the radio edit that features En Vogue

I was very pleasantly surprised and found myself playing it through a bunch for a while! I'm glad to hear you like it.

Paul, if only I had the words!

Thanks! :D They've been great--and more than overdue.

Thanks, D'luv!

I'd heard that but hadn't heard that version--I almost mentioned it here, and I really should have. Thanks for bringing it up :)
