Samuel’s Musician Of The Week: Sophie Ellis-Bextor

January 9th, 2011 at 06:32pm

It’s safe to say that this week’s award is quite a change from the norm for my Musician(s) Of The Week awards. Generally speaking I’m not a huge fan of modern music, although of late I have been getting in to some of the electronic music dance and pop music. I’m convinced that the ratio of junk to good stuff is somewhere around 50:1 or worse, but there are a few gems in there.

One of the things which I think is sadly lacking in most modern music (even stuff that I would consider to be good modern music) is interesting lyrics. Somewhere along the line, the art of telling a story, painting a picture or merely doing something clever with words, was lost. Thankfully it’s not completely lost though, and this week’s award highlights that.

This song caught my attention when I was watching Robbie The Reindeer on ABC1 last week as it played over the closing credits. The lyrics in this one certainly paint a picture and are quite clever, and I’m quite impressed by the catchy musical arrangement which goes with it. By the way, the male voice in this (not the deep one, the other one) is Fred Schneider from the B-52s (for those not familiar, think of the male voice from “Love Shack”). At first when I heard it, I thought it had to be him, and then Wikipedia confirmed it.

Anyway, enough of my preamble, enjoy the feature song for this week which is Supersonic.

Supersonic from the Earth to the Sun now
Flash – from your atomic gun wow
Hang a right at the next zodiac sign
Your kiss is mine

Our love is radiating
Chill out, it´s worth the waiting
You´ve got me spinning like a satellite
I´m in orbit, we´re in heaven
Countdown is a quarter to seven
Faster than the stars shooting by
(5, 4, 3, 2, 1)

Venus collides with Mars
Romance written in the stars

Supersonic from the Earth to the Sun now
Flash – from your atomic gun wow
Hang a right at the next zodiac sign
Your kiss is mine
Kiss so divine
My supersonic baby
Your kiss is mine
Kiss so divine
My supersonic lover baby

Supersonic, I´m at the controls now
The course I take is gonna be bold
I´ve got you covered, covered like lotion
We move together, perpetual motion
All the planets are in alignment
Venus rising, that´s the assignment
The love phase is emerging
Signs show harmonic converging

Venus collides with Mars
Romance written in the stars

Supersonic from the Earth to the Sun now
Flash – from your atomic gun wow
Hang a right at the next zodiac sign
Your kiss is mine
Kiss so divine
My supersonic baby
Your kiss is mine
Kiss so divine
My supersonic lover baby

Zoom baby your signal is clearer
Flashing lights are getting nearer
10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 !

Supersonic from the edge of the Sun now
Flash – from your atomic gun wow
Hang a right at the next zodiac sign

Supersonic from the edge of the Sun now
Flash – from your atomic gun wow
Hang a right at the next zodiac sign

Supersonic from the edge of the Sun
My supersonic baby
Flash – from your atomic gun
My supersonic baby
Your kiss is mine
Kiss so divine
My supersonic baby
Your kiss is mine
Kiss so divine
My supersonic lover baby
