Paul Rein - Swedish italo disco

Today, I finally received the album "Communicate", by Swedish italo disco artist Paul Rein, on CD! The album is my favourite, since most of the songs have a wonderful italo disco sound. That's what I love. Paul has got a sexy voice, perfect for italo disco.

He was also quite popular in clubs all over Europe, so it's about time they released a greatest hits album with his best tracks. The last few years, Paul has written songs for other artists, such as Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson, Victoria Beckham and Mandy Moore.

Please join the new fan group/forum dedicated to Paul.

The extended version of Paul's single "Hold Back Your Love" released in 1985.

Stephanie Beacham joins "Big Brother"

1980's soap diva Stephanie Beacham has joined British reality show "Celebrity Big Brother 2010" on Channel 4. She is best known to soap fans as Sable Colby on hit show "Dynasty" and its spinoff "The Colbys". She also played Dylan's (Luke Perry) mother Iris on "Beverly Hills 90210". In 2008, Beacham joined British soap opera "Coronation Street".

I personally adore Stephanie! Too bad I hate reality shows like "Big Brother", I think it's trash. Beacham will hopefully add some class to the show.
