25 May 2012 - Goldfrapp - Ooh La La

Allison Goldfrapp has made quite a name for herself in the club scene.  Her music, or, at least the music that she makes as part of her band, Goldfrapp (technically, Will Gregory is the other half of the group) is synth-heavy and a throwback to an earlier era.  This song happens to be my favorite of theirs, as well as their biggest hit.  It reminds me pretty heavily of Doctor and the Medics, with a hint of Kate Bush.

Even her look is very late-80's Madonna!  And I think the disco ball horse would have been used a lot more in the 80's if the technology had been there.

  1. It's amazing how much soul can be lost by dropping just a single "La". Compare and contrast: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cbxpH10rTME
