Olly Murs seems to have gone from strength to strength in recent times. His release ‘Dear Darlin’ featuring Alizee has to be one of my favourite tracks from him. I suppose because Alizee is French and very sexy, the track that gets played most on French radio is of course the version with Alizee making a contribution.
All I can say is good choice, only shame is that I searched high and low for a decent video of the track with them both in it and couldn’t really find one. So you are going to have to settle for this one that has been produced with still shots and the lyrics, not such a disaster for everyone I am sure. Plus with the bonus video of Alizee doing a very nice French number in a typically cheesy French style, I am sure you will forgive me. But in case you really do want to see Olly on film performing you can do that here http://youtu.be/m20BTdy9FGI.
Just remember you are missing out on hearing the lovely Alizee singing in her lyrical French language, which really is a very classy addition to the track, French is the language of love course and very beautiful to listen to. Dear Darlin is the final track on the album Right Place, Right Time (US Version) which really is a fabulous album and will I am sure make you an Olly Murs fan if you aren’t already.

This is definitely an album worth buying, it’s going on my Amazon Wish List.
I have to admit I have never been the biggest Pink fan in the world but recently her record ‘Just Give Me a Reason, which incidentally I think should have been called ‘Learn to Love Again’, has been getting a lot of air time on French radio. You can guess what happened, yes it gradually grew on me and now I think she may just have got me hooked. I actually love this track and have got to the point where they can’t play it enough.
I am not saying she isn’t a good singer, when I mention I have not been her biggest fan, I have always thought she could belt out a tune and her performances have always been highly professional. But until now nothing she has done has grabbed me, it was in my view OK and that was about it, but with this release she seems to have crossed the line over to top drawer. Perhaps in the future I will listen a little more carefully to what she puts out.
If my daughter reads this she may be a little put out, she bought me Pink’s boxed set of CD’s for a Christmas present about 4 years ago and I am still yet to play the second CD. But you never know I may just dig it out and see if I can find something else of her’s I really like.
Nate Ruess, the lead singer from ‘Fun’ features in this video and ‘Fun are another band I have been warming to. Especially since they made a few guest appearances on some of the UK TV chat shows. Anyway back to ‘Just Give Me a Reason’, it is from the album The Truth About Love (Explicit) which is, as you can see, labelled explicit.

Quite a few featured artists in this lest, not just Nate Ruess, but Lilly Allen and Eminem. But then she is a big star, despite my previous opinion. What do I know anyway, well I know what I like and I am happy to share my opinion and I guess if you are still reading at this point then you probably like the same stuff I do
