Poptastic Confessions is on Spotify!

Dear Poptastic Readers,

We've been on Spotify for a few years, but we admit we haven't been super proactive with it. However, with the current trend in streaming services, we are embracing it, even though we prefer to download mp3s. 




The problem we have with Spotify and other streaming services is that a lot of the music we feature is often from other countries, and the music isn't always available in certain areas. Some independent artists need to have their music on BandCamp so they get more of the profits. With all of that in mind, we have made playlists for our countdowns that have been featured over the past six years in Poptastic Confessions

Click on the links below to listen to the playlists. But keep in mind, they aren't complete as some songs are just not available to us on Spotify.













Have a great time listening! Remember to like Poptastic Confessions Facebook page and follow Davearama on Twitter!

Cheers then,

Weightless and Holding On by Infernal

Dear Poptastic Readers,

Back in 2012, Poptastic Confessions fell in love with "Love Is All ..." by the Danish group Infernal. What a belter that was! And then Infernal took a break. 


Infernal are Paw and Lina

We were thinking about them lately, so we looked them up and sure enough, they have had two new songs out this year: "Weightless" and "Holding On."



First up is "Weightless" that was released earlier this spring and the more we hear this, the more we love it. While there isn't a music video, you can hear the studio version here. However, you can watch a performance on Danish morning television here ...



Wasn't that nice? Yes, it was. And the more you listen to it, the more you will love it!



Next up is the current single "Holding On." It starts off a bit slower, but then it picks up the pace and it really is a great song. Here the studio version here.

Unfortunately, these Infernal songs aren't available on US iTunes. However, they are Spotify! You can also listen to both of them on our 2017 Poptastic Playlist on Spotify!

Cheers then,
—Davearama

Story Of A Heart by Steps

Dear Poptastic Readers,

Last week, Poptastic Confessions quietly turned 6 years old! Woo-Hoo! And at the end of last week, Steps released their second single from their brilliant comeback album Tears On The Dancefloor. The new single is the expected "Story Of A Heart." It's a mid-tempo affair with a lovely melody.




"Story Of A Heart" was written by Benny and Björn from ABBA. However, it isn't an ABBA song. It was originally recorded in 2009 by the Benny Andersson Band. You can hear the original version. But first, check out Steps video ...



Very good.


Now, let's hope there are more singles from Tears On The Dancefloor by more exciting songs. Our picks for the next single would be either "Space Between Us" or "Glitter & Gold" or BOTH!


"Story Of A Heart" and the epic first single "Scared Of The Dark" as well as the brilliant album Tears On The Dancefloor are available on digital outlets everywhere. Don't delay, buy your copy today! You can also listen to it on our 2017 Poptastic Playlist on Spotify!


Cheers then,

—Davearama

Angels In Chains by Geri Halliwell

Dear Poptastic Readers,

Spice Girl Geri Halliwell released a single this week called "Angels In Chains" and it is a tribute to the late George Michael. Geri and George were good friends, and she has taken this moment to reignite her solo career.




"Angels In Chains" is a mid-tempo piano-led ballad filled with George Michael song references. Geri's vocals are quite good and she even got George's backup singers to be involved. The result is not bad. Check out the video ...






In case you didn't follow Geri's solo career, she had some amazing singles like "Look At Me" (1999 UK #2, New Zealand #1), "Mi Chico Latino" (1999 UK #1), "Lift Me Up" (1999 UK #1), "Bag It Up" (2000 UK#1), "It's Raining Men" (2001 UK #1, Belgium #1, France #1, Ireland #1, Italy #1), "Scream If You Wanna Go Faster" (2001 UK#8), "Calling" (2001 UK #7), "Ride It" (2001 UK#4), "Desire" (2000 UK #22), and "Half Of Me" (2013).


"Angels In Chains" was supposed to be available on digital outlets everywhere. However, it isn't on the iTunes in the US. All proceeds will go to Childline. Buy your copy today, if you can. It is on Spotify so you can add it there.


Cheers then,

—Davearama
