Joan Collins joins Downton Abbey?

According to British newspaper Daily Express, "Dynasty" soap goddess Joan Collins might show up in the third season of ITV's drama series "Downton Abbey", as the cousin of Maggie Smith's character Violet!

According to the newspaper, Collins is a huge fan of the show and has written on her Twitter page that she would love to join the upstairs, downstairs world of "Downton Abbey".

I know this is just a rumour so far, but I love both Joan Collins and "Downton Abbey", so I pray it's true! Wouldn't it be cool to see an Edwardian catfight?


Holly Valance is back!

Do you remember the Australian pop singer Holly Valance? She is best known for her 2002 single "Kiss Kiss", a cover of Tarkan's hit. I love both her pop albums, "Footprints" (2002) and "State Of Mind" (2003), and can't wait for Holly's brand new album, coming in 2012!

For more news on Holly, check out her official website and Twitter account. Here are some of her best known tracks:

Greta Garbo on Swedish banknotes

I'm so excited to hear that my idol, classic movie star Greta Garbo, will appear on the new banknotes here in Sweden. They will be introduced in 2014.

Garbo is a legend and she will live forever through her movies. I just wish that Ingrid Bergman would've been honoured too, but you can't have everything.

Do you love classic movies too?

I Am Divine

I can't wait to see the documentary "I Am Divine", coming next year! It tells the true story about the famous drag queen Divine. Check out the official website for more information about the documentary.

Mariah Carey - Emotions

I love Mariah Carey. She has such an amazing voice. One of my favourite tracks is "Emotions" from 1991. This great pop track was written and produced by Mariah Carey, David Cole and Robert Clivillés.

In the end of the song you can hear Mariah's famous "whistle register". Amazing, huh?

Sebastian Karlsson - Sunday Morning

Swedish pop singer Sebastian Karlsson is back with a brand new single: "Sunday Morning". I was never a fan of his music (I hate acoustic pop) but this song is right up my alley. Sebastian, please, keep doing electropop! It suits you.

Tiffany - I Think We're Alone Now

One of my favourite 80's songs is "I Think We're Alone Now" by American teen idol Tiffany. The single was released in 1987 and became a huge hit all over the world. Tiffany's version is so much better than the original from the 60's.

Don't forget to follow Tiffany on Facebook and Twitter.

Desperate Housewives cancelled in 2012

All good things come to an end. ABC confirmed today that the popular soap opera "Desperate Housewives" is being cancelled in 2012, after eight seasons. The main reason is said to be declining rating.

I love "Desperate Housewives" and I've followed the show since the start in 2004, so it feels a bit sad. However, it's good that the creators know about it in advance, so that they can wrap up all storylines before the finale. We don't want it to end with a cliffhanger!

Rumour has it that one of the housewives will get a tragic end. Do you remember my old blogpost where I came up with the perfect ending to the show? "Dallas" alert!

Will you miss "Desperate Housewives"?

Exposé - Point Of No Return

As you know, freestyle music makes me so happy! One of the best freestyle tracks is Exposé's "Point Of No Return" from 1987. Check out the video: The hair, the clothes, the dance moves, the music. So eighties! I love it.

Exposé recently released a brand new version of the song, remixed by Chris Cox. Sure, it's not as good as the original, but if you're interested, two of the remixes can be downloaded for free at Exposé's official website.

Do you like latin freestyle music? Let me know!

Selena - Dutch disco singer fansite

I just created a fansite about Dutch italo disco singer Selena. Please check it out! When most people hear the name Selena, they think of latin pop singer Selena Quintanilla, who tragically died in 1995. But there was another artist called Selena, an italo disco singer from The Netherlands.

"There's a land that I heard of once in a lullaby"

Rest in peace.

Lili & Susie - Swedish disco duo fansite

I just finished the Lili & Susie fansite on Plastic Retro. Please check it out! It's nice to introduce these Swedish disco sisters to people who don't speak Swedish. If you haven't heard their music yet, you're in for a treat.

More discographies by Swedish artists are coming soon!

I love latin freestyle!

Not many people here in Sweden know about the music genre freestyle. The genre was huge in the US during the eighties and early nineties. Freestyle is a mix between dance, house, synthpop and latin pop. I'm not a big fan of traditional latin music, but I love freestyle!

Through the years, I've collected lots of freestyle albums on CD, mainly by female artists and girl groups. The upbeat melodies and the electronic dance sound always cheers me up. It's amazing!

Some freestyle artists I like: Sweet Sensation, The Cover Girls, Exposé, Shana, Brenda K. Starr, Nancy Martinez, Seduction, Stacey Q, Pajama Party, Shannon, Alisha, Cynthia. Here are some of their videos:

















Video from the new Dallas spinoff

I know I'm not the only one who's excited about the brand new "Dallas" spinoff coming next summer. The news about the show is spreading fast, all over the world. Check out the video preview down below. Sue Ellen looks amazing! Can't wait to see this.

I know I've been a naughty boy. I haven't updated the Plastic Retro website for ages. Shame on me. But I'm finally updating the site with many exciting 80's artists so keep your eyes on the website.

I love you all for having such great taste in trashy music!

Jedward - Lipstick

Another one of my favourite tracks from this year's Eurovision Song Contest is Ireland's entry "Lipstick" by Jedward. I love it! The song is extremely catchy and the twin brothers are quite charming.

I wonder if they can sing live? Who cares? We'll always have the studio version!

Saturday, May 07, 2011

Kati Wolf - What About My Dreams?

One of my favourite songs from this year's Eurovision Song Contest is Hungary's entry "What About My Dreams?" by Kati Wolf. I love the modern dance-pop sound and Kati's strong voice!

Some people have compained about her age. That's just ridiculous! What has age got to do with anything? Kati is a great singer, that's all that matters.

Amanda Lear - Chinese Walk

Trashy gay icon Amanda Lear had big success in the 70's with disco singles "Fashion Pack", "Follow Me" and "Enigma (Give A Bit Of Mmh To Me)". Now, she's finally back with the brand new single "Chinese Walk"!

Sure, Amanda can't sing and her English is quite bad. But I can't help loving her music. Plastic is fantastic!

Barbarellas - Body Rock

Do you remember the Irish girl group B*Witched? They had a big in 1998 with the single "C'est La Vie". Two of the members, sisters Edele and Keavy Lynch, have formed a duo, Barbarellas, and I really like their debut single "Body Rock".

I just ordered their album "Night Mode" and can't wait to listen to it. I love electropop! For more information, check out Barbarellas' official website and Facebook.

Dallas - Meet the new Ewings

Are you excited about the new "Dallas" spinoff series? I sure am! Ultimate Dallas, the official website of 80's soap opera, posted the following character guide on their blog:

ANN RYLAND EWING (played by Brenda Strong) - A pure blue-blooded Texan but you wouldn’t guess it. She may know champagne and caviar, but talks hog and hominy. Carelessly elegant, optimistic, good-humored, Ann’s got eyes in the back of her head and is game for anything.

BOBBY JAMES EWING (played by Patrick Duffy) - His hair a little grayer, his face etched with character, Bobby’s still the same dynamic, compassionate man who always insisted on playing fair.

CHRISTOPHER EWING (played by Jesse Metcalfe) - The new acumen and entrepreneurial vigor of the Ewing clan. Smart, attractive, effective, he has the guarded eyes of someone who’s already mixed it up with life.

REBECCA SUTTER (played by Julie Gonzalo) -  A beautiful, spontaneous young woman, Rebecca seduces those around with her direct manner. Fiancée of Christoher Ewing.

J.R. EWING (played by Larry Hagman) -  Life has not been kind to the former Oil tycoon.

ELENA RAMOS (played by Jordana Brewster) - A proud, beautiful woman with a whirring Swiss timepiece for a mind, less assured. Currently in a relationship with John Ross and has a long history with the Ewing family.

JOHN ROSS EWING (played by Josh Henderson) - A powerful man, he is charismatic, seductive; you have to be careful not to fall in love with him, because you already sense that he’s his father’s son: ambitious, burning with a need to be noticed.

SUE ELLEN EWING (played by Linda Gray) - Many-years-clean-and-sober, finally seems at peace with the gracious Southern belle she was raised to be — before life with J.R. coldcocked her. She looks fantastic.

Thursday, April 21, 2011

Manric - Through The Night

My friend Manric recently released his brand new single "Through The Night" on iTunes and Spotify. It's a great pop song with an electronic sound and a catchy refrain. Buy it now!

Kate Ryan - Lovelife

Belgian pop singer Kate Ryan is back with a new single called "Lovelife". You can buy it on iTunes right now! The song is based on the riff from 90's classic "Narcotic" by Liquido.

I prefer Kate's version. The original isn't electronic enough for my taste.

Britney Spears - Till The World Ends

The official video to Britney Spears' new single "Till The World Ends" was released yesterday and you can watch it right here. What do you think? Can it compare to "Hold It Against It Me"?

Dana International is back in Eurovision

Dana International is most famous for having won the Eurovision Song Contest 1998 with the disco track "Diva". Now, she's back in the contest, representing Israel with the song "Ding Dong".

It's no "Diva", but I really like the song. The contest needs more "gay disco" like this.

Lili & Susie - Tease Me (Jouni Ollila Remix)

Swedish disco sisters Lili & Susie made a big comeback in Melodifestivalen 2009, the Swedish pre-selection to the Eurovision Song Contest, with the song "Show Me Heave". Their follow-up single "Tease Me", sadly, got cancelled.

Now, you can finally listen to one of the unreleased club remixes of "Tease Me". Great, isn't it?

J.R. Ewing in Desperate Housewives

Larry Hagman, known for playing J.R. Ewing on 80's soap opera "Dallas", recently guest starred on ABC's drama series "Desperate Housewives", as Lynette's (Felicity Huffman) stepfather.

It was great to see Larry on a soap again. I'm still very excited about the new "Dallas" spinoff. Two "Desperate Housewives" actors, hunky Josh Henderson and Jesse Metcalfe, are going to play the children of J.R. and Bobby Ewing.

I just can't wait!

Miley Cyrus - Who Owns My Heart

I'm not a fan of Miley Cyrus, her voice is too childish for my taste. But her single "Who Owns My Heart" from 2010 is actually very good! It's more electronic than her previous work. The track is available on Miley's latest album "Can't Be Tamed".

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

I'm so sad today. My big idol, the legendary movie star Elizabeth Taylor, has passed away. She died of heart failure. Elizabeth was seventy-nine years old. I will never forget her and her movies.

Rest in peace, beautiful Elizabeth. You will live forever thanks to the magic world of movies.

Greta Garbo's final film on DVD

As you probably know, I'm a huge fan of classic movies, and one of my favourite stars from the golden era is Swedish film goddess Greta Garbo.

Her final film, the 1942 comedy "Two-Faced Woman" is finally being released on DVD! American Garbo fans can order it from the Warner Archives.

There are no news on an international release yet, but I hope it won't take long. Stay tuned, Garbo fans!

New Dynasty movie

I have some great news for all you soap fans out there! According to Coming Soon, 80's prime time soap opera "Dynasty" is being developed as a feature film. It's going to be a prequel and take place in the 60's.

I'm really excited about this! The only bad thing about the movie being a prequel is that my idol Joan Collins can't be in it. Joan herself suggested on Twitter that Gemma Alterton should play young Alexis. What do you think?

I really love Britney Spears' brand new single "Hold It Against Me"! I'm really excited about the upcoming album, especially since it's going to be more electropop sounding than her previous work. The single is out on iTunes now, so buy it!

What do you think of the new track? Let me know!
