Boogie Woogie - Dannii's #1 Japanese Hit!!

"Boogie Woogie" is brought to you with thanks to Robpop. Lord only knows how many hours I'm going to have to spend on my knees repaying him for his kindness! Give Rob a thrill and check out his scandalous post on Kylie's divine "Light Years" at YouCallThatLife. I'm quite certain Rob must have been drugged to the teeth when he compared "Please Stay" to a Geri Halliwell B-side, but these great tracks more than make up for that usually unforgiveable slight!

Dannii collaborated with Eurogroove in 1995 for their Japanese greatest hits album at a point in time when her career was going nowhere fast in Australia. The result was two #1 Japanese hits - "Rescue Me" and "Boogie Woogie". Unfortunately, I don't have "Rescue Me" but from memory it has nothing on the camp brilliance of "Boogie Woogie", which is the closest to Whigfield that Dannii will ever sound. Rob also sent a couple of cheesy remixes that I had never heard. However, I have a feeling that they will be on high rotation at my place for quite some time to come.

My fave Dannii moment was a soundbite of her on a local radio station saying 'I love downloading music, in fact I downloaded my own single'. Tragic!

Robpop said...

Jamie...that isnt tragic! That is sublime. *Prays and hopes Dannii covers Clea's Download It*

Boogie Woogie is the most poptastic Dannii has ever been. Ive also noticed that its pretty strong vocally.

Its a very rare clip of the Eurogroove video featuring Dannii interwoven with a performance by minogue of the same song!

Ok, so I might have been rather drunk whilst posting that. The spelling. The gramaaaaaaah. Forgive me.

*Goes and plays The Kiani*

I worship at the feet of The Kiani! Have a cocktail for me!

PS. Nice clip!

Jamie - If Dannii doesn't download her own songs - who will? She needs every sale she can!

Miss Halliwell said...

THE KIANI! LOL

I can't get any of these z-share doo-dahs to work...

You're making me mad bitch!

I'm on the first tabogan over to Oz to smack yer bitch up!

Dannii Said "I love being number one in Japan. Being up there with The Nolans is the highlight of my career. Maybe one day i too can be on ITV1's The Bill on British TV with a full blown moustache and excessively bleached hair like Bernard Nolan!"

Deirdre Said "Oh Dannii, i love your dirty box. I say we swap Labia and then i too will know what it's like to be pumped by a man from Charmed and a Formula 1 spunk!"

Dannii replied "Oh is that you again Kylie. You fucking whore. Why don't you just put yourself in my place!"

Deirdre said "I wish this conversation was mine and not tapped into thanks to my surveillance equipment outside Dannii's bedsit..."

Dannii has had the hottest boyfriends. I wouldn't mind being her dirty box while she going out with Julian and Jacques. Lucky bitch!
