#4 of 2012
#4 in Poptastic Confessions Top Songs of 2012 is "4 Ever" by Whigfield. Click on the song title to see when we first wrote about the song.
Now, if you had told us earlier this year that the Whigfield of 1994's hit "Saturday Night" would have two songs in our Top 20, and one song at the #4 spot, we probably would have laughed. But so it is.
When Rao sent us a link to her video for "4 Ever" … we couldn't get enough! We had to download the song from iTunes that day! What a glorious, happy pop song with a wonderful melody!
Throughout the year, we always keep a running playlist of new songs. We initially put the song in around the #14 spot, but after a week of listening to it, it was clear to us that this was a Top 10 hit! It just kept getting higher and higher. It is a true poptastic success story.
We love her album W and we can't get enough of it. What a glorious album, although a bit short (only 8 songs). Her third single from the album was the pop dub step tune "Jeg Kommer Hjem" and despite the Danish title, the track is sung in English. We like it, but we ran out of room for it to make the Top 20 list.
We are hoping for 3 more singles from Whigfield next year. And if so, you can count on them to be in our 2013 countdown because they are FABulous! They are "Stay In My Head", "Devil Called Love" and "As I Go."
And now, for the adorable video for "4 Ever" … Just goes to show you don't need a huge budget for a lasting video.
