SummersRadio™ 2 Year Anniversary!! New Music! Lola Dutronic - 'S.O.S.'
Today marks the 2nd Anniversary of SummersRadio™'s official blog! Although the Facebook group began six months prior and we actually began posting as such on Facebook in 2008, we officially transitioned into a blog two years ago today! So we're up to 891 posts so far (with many that feature more than one song) - that's a lot of quality new music :) I hope you're enjoying it - many thanks to each and every one of you who've viewed and listened so far - Cheers!!
So today we shall celebrate with some new music from Toronto/ Dusseldorf duo Lola Dutronic. We recently featured their clever new single and video 'Everybody Loves You When You're Dead' last month which you can revisit here: http://summersradio.blogspot.ca/2012/09/summersradio-new-music-lola-dutronic.html
Both 'Everybody Loves You When You're Dead' and 'S.O.S.' are from their latest album called 'Everyone's A Star' which is available on itunes. 'S.O.S.' is a brilliant cover of Dire Straits first hit single - 1979's 'Sultans Of Swing' from their self titled debut album.
I had fun playing this song for a few people who recognized or even knew the lyrics, but couldn't name the original - it drove them crazy until the chorus. That's because musically speaking 'S.O.S.' is quite the metamorphosis - from British pub rock to European electro pop - and singer Stephanie B's vocals are more akin to the lovely Miss Kittin than the rather gruff Mark Knopfler... Enjoy!
