Trailer: Jurassic World (2015)

I was nine when I first saw "Jurassic Park" at the cinema in 1993, together with my parents. It's been one of my all-time favourites ever since and it's one of few that I can watch over and over, without getting bored with it.

This summer, the fourth movie in the series is coming out. "Jurassic World" stars the hunky Chris Pratt and you can check out the trailer down below. I just can't wait!

Video: Giorgio Moroder - 74 Is The New 24

I'm a big fan of music producer Giorgio Moroder, the man behind masterpieces like Donna Summer's "I Feel Love", Limahl's "The Neverending Story", Irene Cara's "Flashdance... What A Feeling" and Blondie's "Call Me". Giorgio just released a brand new solo single called "74 Is The New 24". Check out the video down below. I love the electronic sound!

This spring, Giorgio will release his first album in thirty years, including collaborations with my idols Kylie Minogue and Britney Spears. I just can't wait! "74 Is The New 24" is out now on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and Beatport.

Video: Cheryl Cole - I Don't Care

Cheryl Cole is know for being one of the members of British girl group Girls Aloud and for her solo single "Fight For This Love". Now, she's back with the brand new single "I Don't Care". Check out the video down below. Cheryl might not be the strongest singer in the world, but she delivers fabulous plastic pop. "I Don't Care" is right up my alley!

Leighton Meester - Heartstrings

I became a Leighton Meester fan when she played the bitchy Blair Waldorf on teen drama "Gossip Girl", one of my favourite shows. Leighton just released her new single and you can check out the video down below.

"Heartstrings" is a sweet and relaxing pop track, even though it's not as strong as her earlier dance-pop singles "Your Love's A Drug" and "Somebody To Love". But it's not a bad song, far from it. I'm just sad she's left the electronic sound behind.

The song is available on Leighton's debut album, also called "Heartstrong". It's out now on iTunes, Amazon UK and Amazon US.

Video: Erasure - Dead Of Night

One of my favourite tracks on Erasure's new album "The Violet Flame" is the opening track "Dead Of Night". To celebrate Halloween, the track has received a new video, featuring clips from horror classics such as "Dracula", "Frankenstein" and "Nosferatu". A perfect match for a synthpop/classic movie lover like me!
