Ooh La La – Goldfrapp Featured in the Film The Other Guys

Posted on May 04, 2014

GoldfrappOohLaLaCD1Sat watching TV the other night and we were really strapped for something good to watch. Then we noticed ‘The Other Guys’ was showing and it wasn’t too old plus it was a comedy. So we thought lets give it a shot.

Have to be honest I really didn’t think it was that funny, but what I did like was some of the featured music and the one that really got my attention was Ooh La La by Goldfrapp. Soon as I heard it I remembered it and I love it. Definitely a bit quirky and different from the normal run of the mill pop/disco music and it soon had me sitting up to pay attention.

Ooh La La was released back in 2005 as the lead single to the album Supernature and ‘Yay’ Goldfrapp are a British band, so there is a sort of ‘Top of the Pops’ feel to the track, but not in a bad Jimmy Saville way but in a very good and positive British TV and music way.

So here is the video and if you like it and want a bit more you can find the album here

Dear Darlin – Olly Murs Featuring Alizee

Posted on December 14, 2013

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.
