Five songs for the week of June 28th

Kylie Minogue - Better Than Today
Yes, I'm experiencing a Kylie-Frenzy at the moment. This track will remind the American fans of her 2009 US tour tour since she performed it exclusively for them. Now it's on Aphrodite, Kylie's 11th album out next week. It's instantly catchy, very sexy and definitely on of my favourites from the new record.

Christian TV - When She Turns 18
When I interviewed Julian Perretta a few weeks ago, he told me this was his favourite song of the moment. (Read here).Then Britney tweeted she loved it. After investigation both artists were right to praise Christian TV's first single. It screams "hit", with its killer chorus, bouncy rhythm and cheeky lyrics. Sound of the (my) Summer for sure.

Christophe Willem - Bombe Anatomique/Erotica (Steve Anderson Remix)
This is the version Christophe is currently performing on his Coffee Tour across France. It's a revamped version of a song from his debut album, mashed-up with Madonna's Erotica. The result is perfect, thanks to Mr. Anderson, the magician behind all of Kylie's tours. (Watch the video here)

Quentin Mosimann - Gainsbourg Zéro-Dix
French male popstars, part 2. I've never been a fan of Quentin's despite @myfizzypop's pressure, but I have to admit this song about famous deceased French singer Serge Gainsbourg is absolutely fantastic. The sample, the rhythm, the lyrics, the voice: they all make for a super modern French pop song that you won't be able to get out of your head. (Thanks William for that!)

Diana Vickers - Hit
While I wasn't that much into her album, I admit there are a few gems on there. Hit, which was written by none other than Björk, is one of them. It doesn't fit the album at all, being to weird compared to the very polished other pop songs but at least, it's good!
