Aqua has released a greatest hits album with includes 16 remastered tracks from their first two albums, 1997’s Aquarium and 2000’s Aquarius including their first new single in eight years, Back to the 80’s.
The Danish pop group Aqua is responsible for tracks such as Lollipop (Candyman), Doctor Jones, Cartoon Heros, Bumble Bees and the more popular Barbie Girl, which involved a major lawsuit from Mattel. They seem to be cheesy yet this fits in well with their music style and their lyrics are upbeat and catchy. Their new single Back to the 80’s is part of the Aqua Greatest Hit’s compilation which references a lot of 80’s pop culture such as Bananarama, Commodore 64s, MTV, Twisted Sister and Mr. T.
So if you love the 80’s, check out AQUA’s new single above!
In limbo for actual label release, see back-story below.
Dark Night of the Soul is written and produced by Danger Mouse and Mark Linkous (Sparklehorse) featuring vocal contributions from a vast range of rock artists (The Shins, The Strokes, Neutral Milk Hotel). Initially, the album was to be accompanied by a book of photography by David Lynch, but due to legal issues with EMI the album may never be officially released at all.
DNOTS’webstore purchases will come with a limited edition book of David Lynch’s photography and a blank CD-R labeled: “For legal reasons, enclosed CD-R contains no music. Use it as you will.” In the meantime, the album can be streamed on NPR or downloaded through torrents. Of course, your friends here at The Funcooker have a clean link ready for you (see below)!!
Directed by Jonas Äkerlund (Madonna, Prodigy), and almost 8 minutes long, this mini-movie features a murderous plotline that revolves around a starlet hounded by photographers. This video apparently was “leaked” out online last Thursday before it was set to debut but this could easily be a set-up especially after looking at Lady Gaga’s twitter feed that night with her stating, “Stop leaking my motherfucking videos.” Still this 1940’s epic style video proves that Lady Gaga is a true original with a very unique vision and style.
This is my favorite song off of Lady Gaga’s record so when the music video came out, I thought it would be another one of her fun whimsy videos but surprisingly this is one of her best videos I have seen yet. Regardless of what anybody says, I absolutely love the look and feel of this video. So enjoy!
