Welcome to Poptastic Confessions! This blog is dedicated to glorious, unashamed alternative pop music! We hope to share new music with you that you might not have heard before because it is usually overlooked by the masses. Of course, we'll always encourage you to buy the music legally to support the artists. Enjoy! —Davearama, editor of Poptastic Confessions
Their second single is what caught my attention as it was a remake of a Bananarama song called "Last Thing On My Mind." Bananarama released their version in 1992 and it stalled in the UK charts at #71. Steps took their version to #6 in the UK charts, as well as #1 in the Belgian charts. Sara and Keren from Bananarama wrote the song, so they got nice royalties!
They are talking about making new music together. I think they will. They still have fans. In the meantime, they did record a new track for their new "Ultimate Collection" album. Fittingly enough, they have covered ABBA's "Dancing Queen."
OK, I know I haven't written in awhile. Life gets busy, especially when you have kids. But pop music continues and this time with The Pipettes!
I adore The Pipettes! Their first album was very 60s wall of sound. Their second album was like 70s disco with a hint of funk. Of course my descriptions could be wrong, but the music is POP and FABulous!
The latest single, "Boo Shuffle", sounds like it could have been on their first album. So I'm not sure which musical direction they are going, but it doesn't matter.
The polka dots are back! A group of dancers called The Actionettes help out in the video. The daughter of late producer Martin Rushent named Amy, can be seen dancing between Ani and Gwenno and sitting next to The Pipettes at the piano. Martin produced The Pipettes second album.
Enjoy the video! The song will be available to purchase on November 14.
