SHREM'S LIST OBSESSION: Top 10 Favourite Annie Tracks + "Tube Stops And Lonely Hearts"
The Norwegian saviour of the European pop scene, music critics' #1 darling and possibly this week's most talked about artist in the whole blogosphere, Annie is back with her very long anticipated single "Tube Stops and Lonely Hearts" which some already claim to be her best song to date. This synth-pop jewel is Annie's emotional tribute to the rave culture in the early 1990's. "Tube Stops and Lonely Hearts" is a danceable diary entry from a few amazing raves in London + an old industrial harbour venue in Bergen, Norway: the former sardine factory "Verftet" - and the giantesque garage "Teatergarasjen". Bergen princess now has a brand new Facebook page, fresh website and is promising more treats in the upcoming months including her collaboration with Ralph Myerz "Take a Look at the World" co-produced by Röyksopp soon to be available also outside of Norway. Here's "Tube Stops and Lonely Hearts" which is out today, followed by a very subjective selection of top 10 Annie tracks I cherish the most. Just adding some more love to this buzzy Annie themed week from my carousel too. After all I've been a devoted fan since the first time I heard that stupendous Madonna-sampling "The Greatest Hit" all the way back in 1999...
