NATALIA Último Adios & Loco Por Mi & bonus


Natalia was one of our first postings on DontStopthePop and this marks the last while in Spain. So who is Natalia I hear you ask? My boyfriend-from Malaga btw-has followed her career since she began with her debut album back in 2001 (doesn't that seem like a lifetime away?) and is thus a huge huge huge fan. If memory serves me well the CD included tracks recorded in London with hitmakers Metro (otherwise known as Brian Rawling and Graham Stack). Natalia is the one the right btw....

Her second album included the famous singer Lucie Silvas and saw Natalia covering Highway To Hell. For me, its the best album shes done. She's even cracked the UK charts with her urban disco track I Love This Game. All of which is pretty impressive considering that she finished 14th in the Spanish version of Pop Idol. She wasnt even in the semi-finals yet her chart success rivals the winner Rosa Lopez.

After taking time out she has returned this year with her pop polemic Nada Es Lo Que Crees which has got the blog IndieGirl/PopBoy typing out superlatives which it justly deserves. The lead single went to no.3 in Spain, a shocking position considering it wasnt even released in any physical format, and although it sounds a bit like Britneys Toxic and Girls Aloud No Good Advice it still holds that special essence that marks it out as a traditional Spanish pop song. The album consists of a total of 12 tracks some of which are co-written with Anders Wollbeck, a flurry of Swedish hit writers, and the team behind Kylies Confide In Me (Brothers In Rhythm).

So today we have three tracks for your delight!

Último Adios-written by the same stable behind Britney's Breathe On Me and Kylie's Confide In Me, Último Adios (The Last Goodbye) sounds very much like Rachel Stevens epic dance-ballad track I Will Be There from her second LP. Now this song was originally put aside for Kylie yet it ended up on Natalia's album. It is still, in its English form, being touted to other female acts so you might hear of it again. I've heard the original English demo version and its absolutely stunning.

Loco Por Mi-Sounds a bit like Sugababes Overload, Britneys Toxic and Girls Aloud No Good Advice. In other words pop at its finest. A MUST!

Highway to Hell-And now for something highly ridiculous. Taken from her second album, Natalia's cover of Highway to Hell is so fun you'll smile whether you like it or not. In fact, her third album is so cool its freezing and lacks the charm/giggles of her second that along with this little slice of pop heaven includes many more kitch moments. Consider her second album a a good laugh while the new one is for posing. Still, hope you enjoy! To buy her CDs check out El Corte Ingles.

Words: pop idol, losers, winners, Rachel Stevens, Swedish songwriters, Britney Spears, Spain

In other news:

-Congrats to all who have done well at their exams this year! Have fun at uni!

-In an odd turn of events, a Swedish act has "covered" a British girl group. The acts in question are the Swedish Pop Idol winner Agnes and Popstars losers Clea. The song is Kick Back Relax which is being released by Agnes at the end of September and looks to be another huge single for her. To listen to the new version by Agnes click here and to read the DontStopthePop review of the Clea "original" click here. The " " are being used as its not really a Clea song because their version was never released so.......

-Absolutely loving HomoElectrics recent posting of the Hindi ABBA. The duo were once featured on Radio 4 and I've spent literally years wondering whether I was dreaming or not.

-Absolutely loving Mika thanks to Gaypop. Check him out and try to catch him on tour when he visits your nearest local stage. The track Grace Kelly is everything I ever dreamt of and more! The male Amy Diamond? Billy Brown certainly sounds like something that could be on the much older Amy Diamonds' fourth album...

Highway To Hell is fun trash.

When exactly did Natalia get into the UK charts? I think you might have dreamed it...

Robpop said...

Naw, I didnt dream of such a thing!

It was released last year. It didnt do well but charted in the UK. Up in the Clea/JennyFrost echelons of the chart. Nevertheless, it wasnt a dream and I have the CD in front of me. Its not a very good song but it did v well in Spain due to some heavy pop remixes when it got radio treatment. Check it out here:

Not the top 40 then.

I never said it did go top 40. :)

Thus, Natalia remains one of few acts from a pop idol type show to enter the UK charts where the language of origin is not English. Personally i think thats pretty impressive especially if one considers that she wasnt even a winner nor finalist. Moreover recently there are very few pop acts from Europe that can even claim to say that they've had a stab at the UK charts....at least she tried and actually charted. Big british acts with big backing like Jamelia and Kylie have all had real bad chart positions.

Robpop said...

Nope :) Only me...

Hello. Prompt how to get acquainted with the girl it to me to like. But does not know about it
I have read through one history
Each of you has your personal story; it is your history. Keeping a diary or writing your feelings in a special notebook is a wonderful way to learn how to think and write about who you are -- to develop your own identity and voice.

People of all ages are able to do this. Your own history is special because of your circumstances: your cultural, racial, religious or ethnic background. Your story is also part of human history, a part of the story of the dignity and worth of all human beings. By putting opinions and thoughts into words, you, too, can give voice to your inner self and strivings.

A long entry by Anne Frank on April 5, 1944, written after more than a year and a half of hiding from the Nazis, describes the range of emotions 14-year-old Anne is experiencing:

". . . but the moment I was alone I knew I was going to cry my eyes out. I slid to the floor in my nightgown and began by saying my prayers, very fervently. Then I drew my knees to my chest, lay my head on my arms and cried, all huddled up on the bare floor. A loud sob brought me back down to earth, and I choked back my tears, since I didn't want anyone next door to hear me . . .

"And now it's really over. I finally realized that I must do my school work to keep from being ignorant, to get on in life, to become a journalist, because that's what I want! I know I can write. A few of my stories are good, my descriptions of the Secret Annex are humorous, much of my diary is vivid and alive, but . . . it remains to be seen whether I really have talent . . .

"When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived! But, and that's a big question, will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, because writing allows me to record everything, all my thoughts, ideals and fantasies.

"I haven't worked on Cady's Life for ages. In my mind I've worked out exactly what happens next, but the story doesn't seem to be coming along very well. I might never finish it, and it'll wind up in the wastepaper basket or the stove. That's a horrible thought, but then I say to myself, "At the age of 14 and with so little experience, you can't write about philosophy.' So onward and upward, with renewed spirits. It'll all work out, because I'm determined to write! Yours, Anne M. Frank

For those of you interested in reading some of Anne Frank's first stories and essays, including a version of Cady's Life, see Tales From the Secret Annex (Doubleday, 1996). Next: Reviewing and revising your writing
