Welcome to Poptastic Confessions! This blog is dedicated to glorious, unashamed alternative pop music! We hope to share new music with you that you might not have heard before because it is usually overlooked by the masses. Of course, we'll always encourage you to buy the music legally to support the artists. Enjoy! —Davearama, editor of Poptastic Confessions
Two weeks after dropping her album Golden, which hit #1 in the UK and
Australia, Kylie has just released a second video for the album’s second
single, “Stop Me From Falling.”
The video was shot in Cuba and features Cuban
pop stars Gente de Zona. They weren’t on the album version of the song, but
it’s a nice little addition, especially because we have Kylie singing a few
extra lines in Spanish!
It’s been a long time since Kylie released a
big production video like this, and we are loving it! In it, she flirts with a
handful of hotties in some of Cuba’s most beautiful settings. The choreography
is very nice, and her outfits are all very beautiful, she’s looking really
good. Check out the video ...
Let’s hope the promotion for Golden
keeps on going and we get more videos and a nice tour later on this year! The new version of "Stop Me From Falling" is available on digital outlets everywhere. We've added it to our 2018 Poptastic Confessions Playlist on Spotify. Enjoy!~
Dear Poptastic Readers, The artist formerly known as Whigfield is back! Sannie has officially released her new song "Boys On Girls." Or is it "Girls On Boys"? "Girls On Girls"? "Boys On Boys"? Yes, yes, yes!
Sannie entered this year's Danish Melodi Grand Prix (Denmark's Eurovision selection song contest) with "Boys On Girls" back in February. Sadly she didn't win. We've been waiting for this song to be released on digital outlets and finally it was last week. "Boys On Girls" is a cool song that will have you singing along in no time. Just have a listen ...
Dear Poptastic Readers, Gwenno has released her second single from her acclaimed new Cornish-language album Le Kov. The new single is "Eus Keus?"
You might remember that last month we featured the first single from the album called "Tir Ha Mor." Click on the name to see what we wrote about it. "Eus Keus?" translates to "Is there cheese?" Gwenno told DIYmag.com that this is "a pagan pop song celebrating 10,000 years of cheese offerings as a gift to the gods." And that is exactly what you get with the video. Just have a look ...
Dear Poptastic Readers, Great news! Rebecca & Fiona have a new song out and it really is a return to form for them. The new song is called "Need You." We "need you" to buy it! More details on that later!
We have been supporters of the Swedish duo for the past five years (see below), but we feel like they got off course last year with their singles "Pay Me", "Money", and "Pop Bitches." The later one we didn't even feature in Poptastic Confessions. Back to the new song, "Need You" starts off a bit dreamy until the droning beat start in right before the catchy chorus. It has so many nice elements that it reminds you of the magic of the duo. We are pleased. Have a listen ...
"Need You" is available on digital outlets everywhere. Be sure to buy it to support them because they are now on an independent label and we "need you" to support them so they continue to make pop gems like this. We've added "Need You" to our 2018 Poptastic Confessions Playlist on Spotify. Enjoy!~
Dear Poptastic Readers, Here is some fun news ... 80s British pop star Samantha Fox is back! HOORAY! She has a brand-new 80s-inspired glorious pop tune called "Hot Boy" and it is a theme song to a new movie called Videoman.
If you just asked 'Who is Samantha Fox?' She is a pop star who was big in the 80s. She was also known for being a glamour model before her singing career. She had these hits ...
"Touch Me (I Want Your Body)" in 1986. #1 in Australia, Canada, Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Switzerland. Top 5 in the US, UK, Austria, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, and New Zealand.
Wasn't that a blast? Yes, it was! And Samantha looks great! "Hot Boy" is available on digital outlets everywhere. Buy your copy today! We've added the track to our 2018 Poptastic Confessions Playlist on Spotify. Enjoy!~
So who is Noah Reid? Well, he is a Canadian artist who plays the role of Patrick on the hilarious TV show Schitt's Creek. The show is in its 4th season. We just found out about the show last month and we've binge-watched the first 3 seasons on Netflix. In Season 4, Noah Reid really shines as he gives us this song. You can watch a clip here ...
Wasn't that lovely? Yes, it was. When we watched the episode, everyone in the room was in tears. We mostly laugh at Schitt's Creek, but many times it captures our heart and this song was a magical moment. If you have never seen Schitt's Creek. Go watch it now! Here is the trailer for the first season ...
We did a little bit more exploring of Noah Reid and he released an album in 2016 called Songs From A Broken Chair. It's a collection of heartfelt acoustic songs. Normally our genre includes pop beats, but Noah has captivated us. Check out his video for the song "Runaway" ...
We hope Noah continues his role as Patrick on Schitt's Creek. We are rooting for him and David (aka Dan Levy). As for "Simply The Best" ... It is available on digital outlets everywhere. Buy your copy today. We've added it (and "Runaway") to our 2018 Poptastic Confessions Playlist on Spotify. Enjoy!~
Dear Poptastic Readers, Last month, a new song and single was released from the late-80s UK sister duo Mel & Kim. The new song is "Where Is Love." The news of this song came as a surprise as Mel died in 1990.
Mel had been battling cancer and died of pneumonia in January of 1990. Her sister Kim continued on with a solo career in the early 90s. Her biggest hit was "Don't Worry." So in the beginning of this year, we heard that there would be a new Mel & Kim song out this year. "Where Is Love" is a previously unreleased demo track that got an overhaul. It came with a nice remix package, too. Here is snippet of the 7th Heaven Club Mix ...
Dear Poptastic Readers, So sorry we have been away for 2 weeks. We are back today and we have a lot of songs to get to this week. Today we share with you the latest single from Kim Wilde. The new song is called "Kandy Krush" and it is from her latest album Here Come The Aliens.
Back in the beginning of February, we shared with you Kim's first single from the new album called "Pop Don't Stop." "Kandy Krush" is bit more rock pop than her last single. Check out the video ...
