Charley says POP! is coming back!

March 15, 2011

It’s been way too long, so after a long hibernation due to circumstances Charley says POP! is coming back!

The goal remains the same. It’s not about being the fastest or the most updated, it’s a platform for me to point you towards the world’s finest pop in all its forms. A place where you can come take a look every once in a while to catch up on new releases, old favourites and hidden gems.

And as before, there’s just that little bit of extra attention for the Belgian and Dutch music scene. There’s just too much amazing Benelux pop that would otherwise stay under the radar in the English language blogosphere.

If you’re just joining us, feel free to take a look around in this blog’s history. There’s been posts on pop in the broadest sense of the word, there’s been guest blogs from the likes of The Pipettes and there’s also been interviews with artists ranging from upcoming talent like Susanna Kay and Axeela to international superstars like Lasgo producer Peter Luts and the ever amazing Kat DeLuna.

I am now going to leave you with the above music video of ‘Be With You’ by Tara Lowé, which has no relevance to this post other than that it is a brilliant club track and that I simply like it very very much.

Hope to see you around!

Charley

PS: It has come to my attention that there’s been some major issues with the Charley says POP! e-mail address. It seems that not only in the last couple of weeks, but also in the months that we were still up a lot of things have gone wrong with sending and receiving e-mails.

My sincere apologies if you have been trying to contact me, or if I have contacted you only for the message to ultimately not arrive. I’m trying to get this sorted as soon as possible.

Charley says ARTIST! David Vervoort (Formerly Of Lasgo)

May 16, 2010

I wasn’t really planning on writing another post today, but I was just watching ‘Tomtesterom’ and guess which former Lasgo member was on it?

‘Tomtesterom’ sees host Tom Waes attempting a different challenge each week. He’s tamed wild horses, ran the exhausting Marathon des Sables and this week… he had to become a schlager singer.

Helping him along the way was songwriter David Vervoort, who you may remember as one third of old school Lasgo!

Together with producer Peter Luts he was responsible for dance classics like ‘Something‘. Every once in a while he could even be heard on an album track or two. Most notably, he sang on the album version of ‘Who’s That Girl’, though his vocals got replaced by Dave Beyer’s for the single release.

David had projects on the side as well. For example, back in 2003 he co-wrote the amazing ‘Be With You‘ for the now long forgotten dance singer Tara Lowé. Last year he released a pleasant little tune called ‘I’m Sorry‘ which, despite a couple of celebrity cameos in the video, failed to make an impact on the charts. His biggest solo success came in 2004 when he released ‘B*tch‘ as Dave McCullen. Aided by a video full of OAPs partying at a nightclub, the song became a top 10 smash and even managed to become somewhat of an international hit.

As far as I know David isn’t involved in the current Lasgo reboot. It seems that instead he’s now mainly a schlager songwriter! With the likes of Christoff, Nathalie Tané and schlager queen Laura Lynn recording his songs, David seemed the perfect guy for Tom Waes to turn to for his very own hit single.

Together they came up with the cheesy but catchy ‘Dos Cervezas‘. You can watch the full video here. If you listen carefully you can hear David doing backing vocals. It looks like the song might even go beyond tonight’s show as it’s already at number 2 on the iTunes chart.
