Here's a song that featured on a lot of pop blogs last year. It's Blame it On You by the Swedish singer Gathania. Alas, it wasn't a hit. It only got to number 39 in the Swedish charts and it didn't seem to have been released in many other countries. If Blame It On You had been released in the 1990's it would easily have been a hit as it reminds me of all those dance pop hits of that decade. Do readers remember a time when 10 or 12 singles would chart every week in the UK and many of those songs in the top ten as well? It's a bit better in recent months but with less songs charting each week in the UK charts it's tougher for a music artist to have a hit single. The video for Blame It On You is the usual girls in a dance video that brings out my inner feminist so I'm just posting the song by itself. It would be fab if it got a re-release so who knows maybe second time round?
