I love my pink iPod

I recently bought a new friend, the iPod Touch 7. You're probably asking yourself: "Do they still make those?". Oh yes! As you might know, streaming isn't really my thing. I rarely use Spotify. I prefer to rip my CD's in the high sound quality I like or to buy uncompressed music files digitally.

For years, I have loved my old iPod Classic 160 GB since it could fit so much music. However, it has begun to show its age, so I bough an iPod Touch 256 GB which has even more space than the old one. It's even pink, my favourite colour. I named it DiscoPod.

It has a lot of extras that I don't really need. I mainly bought it for its big space. I also like that it won't bother me with phone calls or texts while I'm listening to music. Besides, I can't fit all my music on an iPhone so this iPod is perfect for me.

I wonder if I'm the only one who still uses an iPod?

Eurotix - Love Take Me Higher (EP)

Mine and Larry Forsberg's synthpop project Eurotix just released the brand new EP "Love Take Me Higher". The title track might sound familiar to Eurovision fans. The song was written by Larry and his friends for Melodifestivalen 2016 (Swedish pre-selection) where it was performed in Swedish by drag queen act After Dark.

But the original demo version was quite different. Dennis sang on the original version which was intended for disco group Alcazar. We are thrilled to finally release our version of the song! Check out the LGBTQ themed video down below.

The EP also includes our love letter to disco music: "I Don't Wanna Dance Alone", the Army Of Lovers-esque "Venus Calling Azerbaijan" and finally "Lockdown Disco", a song about the world's current situation.

Please support our music by buying or streaming the new EP, out on Bandcamp (supports the artist), iTunes/Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon UK, Amazon US and many other digital music stores.

"Love Take Me Higher":

1. Love Take Me Higher
2. I Don't Wanna Dance Alone
3. Venus Calling Azerbaijan
4. Lockdown Disco

Tanya Roberts has passed away

I was so sad to read the news about amazing actor Tanya Roberts' death. She was only sixty-five years old with so much more to give. She was a big favourite of mine.

As a kid, I first saw her in the original "Charlie's Angels" series (one of my all-time favourites) and the James Bond movie "A View To A Kill" (1985), and I became a big fan straight away. Later, I fell in love with her all over again on "That '70s Show" and when discovering the cult classics "Sheena: Queen Of The Jungle" (1984) and "Tourist Trap (1979)".

Rest in peace, angel. You'll be terribly missed.

Steps, Kim Wilde and Sylvie Vartan

New CD's in my record collection: First out, "What The Future Holds" (2020) by Steps. I love this album. It's one of the albums of the year for me. We need more poptastic music in this world.



Remastered reissues of "Des Heures De Désir" (1984), "Made In USA" (1985) and "Virage" (1986) by French singer Sylvie Vartan. I first discovered her music after hearing her version of a track by my idol Agnetha Fältskog. Great synth driven pop music!



And finally "Wilde Winter Songbook" (Deluxe Edition) (2020) by the amazing Kim Wilde. Lovely Christmas album including duets with Nik Kershaw, Rick Astley, Hal Fowler and Marty Wilde.
