They gained international fame with their controversial image and catchy pop tunes. In 2003, they represented Russia […]

Lena – Satellite

Carrying on about my Eurovision favourites, here is a track from Germany called Satellite. It won when I was living in Netherlands but we have very fond memories of Germany as I lived in Hamburg for about 6 months. Lena, with her captivating charm and infectious energy, took the Eurovision stage by storm with her […]

Lordi – Blood Red Sandman

Another one of my favourite Eurovision act is Lordi from Finland. Although this song is not their official Eurovision entry, the video was like a mini horror movie that stucked in my head. Lordi’s victory in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2006 marked a significant departure from the competition’s typical offerings. With their electrifying performance […]

Ruslana – Wild Dances

With Eurovision just a little over a month away, I figured it will be good to share some of my favourites. I tend to lean towards artists that perform in their native languages but a good beat is a good beat regardless. It was towards the end of my student life in the UK and […]

Apache Indian – Boom Shack-A-Lak

Concluding my posts of artists of Indian Origin, this was a childhood favourite of mine thanks to my eldest sister. Apache Indian, born Steven Kapur on May 11, 1967, is a renowned British-Indian musician and singer-songwriter who rose to prominence in the 1990s with his unique fusion of reggae, Indian, and dance music. Hailing from […]

Noble Savages – I Am An Indian

Still recovering from my trip in India, the memories of Indian based acts reminded me of this song from Noble Savages, “I Am An Indian”. The funny thing is, I didn’t know much about the band until I started researching them for this blog post. The duo consists of a brother and sister duo, Shirin […]

Alisha Chinai – Made In India

Being in India for the first time this week was amazing and this Friday’s post is a tribute to a childhood song that I listened to as it received airplay on Channel [V] Asia. I can’t believe I would have listened to this song in primary school without understanding the lyrics other than the English […]

Daler Mehndi РHo Jayegi Balle Balle

Next week I will be in India on a work trip. It will be my first time in Delhi and hopefully we will make our way to visit the Taj Mahal. So, in preparation of my trip, I was trying to revisit my memory bank of India songs that I listened to when I was […]

Black Soil Formed into a Shape of a Heart

Stooshe – Black Heart

Thanks to getting ready for this post, this is the first time I have seen the video. I heard this song on radio occassionally but it really stuck in my head from a compilation CD my daughter bought from a Car Boot Sale. Stooshe are a British girl group from London, consisting of three members […]

Donna Lewis – I Love Your Always Forever

As Valentine’s Day rolls around each year, many of us find ourselves caught in a whirlwind of emotions. For some, it’s a day filled with romantic gestures, heartfelt declarations, and cherished memories. For others, like myself, it’s a day that feels overly commercialized, perhaps even a bit contrived. However, amidst differing perspectives, there’s always room […]
