Can’t Get It Out of My Head

On Sunday morning, I was using a little handy-dandy feature of last.fm, which was a conglomerated radio feed of my musical preferences. For some reason, “Can’t Get You Out of My Head”, covered by Helena Noguerra came right out of nowhere (as my interests did not include certain bossa nova), and I fell completely in love with it. Her wonderful melodies mixed so well with the harmonies in the chorus, and the whimsical quality of all the na-na-nas pulled me in, but that rhythm is what has hypnotized me. This version is about ten times better than Kylie Minogue’s “original” (the only thing she contributed was her voice, so digitally polished).

This song has been in my head for the past three days, and now I must infect you.

Upon hearing this marvelous music, I further inspected Helena’s music, and it was less than satisfactory, much to my chagrin. The wonderful rhythms were nowhere to be heard, and her voice was nothing like the one I adored so much. Sadly, this is the only gem she offers.

    Since you don’t like when she sings in French, maybe you should listen to what she did as “Dillinger Girl & Baby face Nelson”. Some songs are very good (Hit, Move, Work…)
    I think Née dans la nature is a very good CD. It’s produced and co-written by French singer Philippe Katerine (her lover) who’s quite interesting too… But it’s better to understand the lyrics.

    oh i have no problem with lyrics in other languages, and i can pretty much understand french, and especially spanish, but i just couldn’t get into her style. it didn’t seem to possess nearly as much energy or as many beautiful harmonies than this cover.
