Charley says VIDEO! Daruso – Since You Been Gone

July 29, 2010

You may have heard about this song before, but as it’s out right now I urge you to check it out again and get yourself a copy on iTunes!

“The new Cascada” would be a lazy comparison, but is correct in that Daruso consists of a singer in front of and producers behind the scenes.

The lovely Jess Russo provides the vocals, while Julian Gingell and Barry Stone are on production duties. You may know these two gentlemen as Jewels & Stone, the remix and production duo who brought us remixes of Stephanie McIntosh’s ‘Mistake‘ and ‘Watch This Space‘ from Britannia High.

Since You Been Gone‘ is a proper little dance gem, which I sincerely hope a lot of people will buy. Wouldn’t it be a waste not to get to hear what Daruso still has in store for us?

If you still find yourself in doubt, check out the Twilight Mix and let Jess’s voice do the convincing. Despite the Radio Edit being pretty damn perfect as is, the digital bundle also includes remixes from the likes Buzz Junkies.

Be sure to check back tomorrow for Jess from Daruso’s exclusive guest blog on Charley says POP!

Charley says LIST! If You’re Only Just Joining Us

May 26, 2010

I am very excited to have gotten a mention on Don’t Stop The Pop‘s ‘Blog Love‘!

I’ve been reading DSTP for a while now. It’s the blog that introduced me to Agnes, Elouise and Pauline, to name just a few acts. It’s also the blog that I hope I can achieve the same level of ongoing quality as.

For those of you who’ve now come here for the first time, be it thanks to DSTP or for any other reason, I wanted to fill you in on what I’ve been doing these last few months.

Over the last few days I’ve been posting the eight parts of Oslo 2010 In A Tweet, a Eurovision review which I’ve absolutely loved doing with my equally as ESC obsessed friends MadeInHeaven and Greg Baker.

However, these posts have left this page a bit clogged up. So without further ado, here’s a sample of what you’ll find beyond the first page of Charley says POP!

Charley says ARTIST! Axeela
[http://tinyurl.com/34qmepa]
Why: I think Axeela might just be the next big popstar from Belgium.

Charley says LIST! Ke$ha: The Clone Wars
[http://tinyurl.com/34mjt5e]
Why: This post got picked up by StumbleUpon, it’s an introduction to some great lesser known pop acts who may have been a little influenced by the current Ke$ha craze.

Charley says SONG! Glamm – Overheated
[http://tinyurl.com/32snq2c]
Why: I love talent show acts and former popstars who decide to give it another go. Especially if the result is as good as this ‘Evacuate The Dancefloor’ sounding pop tune.

Charley says VIDEO! Cinérex – Bring Up The Sun
[http://tinyurl.com/38ooyyb]
Why: It’s fun to piece together information about a brilliant act that seemed to have gone unnoticed by the internet. It took me some time to collect all the facts, but this is one of my favourite posts.

Charley says ARTIST! Harel Skaat
[http://tinyurl.com/ybbwx93]
Why: You may have noticed that this blog has extra attention for, as DSTP put it, Benelux Pop. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t like to discover artists from all over the globe. A perfect example is this post I wrote on this year’s Israeli Eurovision contestant Harel Skaat.

Charley says WEEK!
[http://tinyurl.com/3a4mcmv]
Why: Since a couple of weeks I do a roundup on Sunday of all the posts I put up in the last seven days. Accompanied by a video that hasn’t yet made it on the blog, it’s a nice way to catch up with the pop you may have missed.

I hope that you have may have found something you like on Charley says POP! I’ve got some exciting stuff planned for the blog, so I hope that you come back soon. For those of you who have already been reading along these last months, I hope you keep coming back!

Thank you for visiting!
