Melanie C - High Heels

I've never been a huge fan of Melanie C's solo music. Don't get me wrong, she is a great singer and I love her in the Spice Girls, but many of her solo songs are just not my style. There are exceptions however, for example the dance-pop anthems "I Turn To You (Hex Hector Radio Mix)" and "Anymore (Seamus Haji Radio Mix)". Now another one has arrived.

Her latest single "High Heels" is an amazing uptempo dance-pop track and the video has a loud and proud LGBTQ theme. Check out the official video down below and support the catchy song by streaming or buying it from iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and more.

Dani Futuro comic books

I just bought these issues of the classic comic book series Dani Futuro. I had the middle one as a kid and loved it so much. It was both scary and fun at the same time. It's a Spanish sci-fi series created by Carlos Giménez and Victor Mora in the sixties. These Swedish editions were released in 1983 though and I bought my first copy as a kid in the early nineties.

Does anyone else out there remember this comic?

My favourites: Naomi Scott - Speechless (Aladdin)

Me and some friends recently saw Disney's new version of "Aladdin" at the cinema and I really liked it a lot. I found it hard to take my eyes off of the gorgeous Mena Massoud who plays Aladdin. Marwan Kenzari who plays Jafar is really good looking as well. But that's not what this post is about, so let's get serious:

I like that Disney has modernised the story and gotten rid of the Arabian stereotypes from the original. I also like that Jasmine, played by the talented Naomi Scott, is given more of a voice this time around. I totally love the song "Speechless" that she sings as a response to society's demands on her to be seen but not heard. The song is beautiful and empowering, sort of like "Let It Go" from "Frozen".

Check out the video down below and don't forget to support the song on iTunes, Spotify etc.
