Tsk Tsk Natalia Kills vid for Zombie is cool, but why the similarities to Diva? The vid seems for relevant to Zombie. For one, what’s a Diva doing blowing up a car full of manikins? But hey whatever floats your boat.

Makes you want to be a Zombie doesn’t it?

Natalia Kills, a British-born Jamaican, is being compared to Lady Gaga and Rihanna.  I wouldn’t say she’s very Gagaish except that she says Space Cowboy just play that track which is also something Gaga has said and this one pic which kind of reminds me of a particular scene in Telephone in which Gaga wears the cigarette glasses. And like Gaga she works with Akon and Space Cowboy and is in Cherrytree records.  Ok I guess that’s a lot in common, but it still doesn’t make her Gagaish.

 

So far she seems far more like Rihanna in her Rated R phase. Zombie is a very dark track that starts off sounding like Mad House and she’s singing about being in love with a zombie for crying out loud its going to be dark. The  lyrics like ” Cold, cold, freezing, freezing Got my heart beating, beating” and  “Cause he chasing me nightlyAnd I want him to bite me” are disturbing enough to give you the creeps, but not to stop listening to the song.  The video reminds me of Russian Roulette and old video footage.  She kind of reminds me of Kanye with his videos Paranoid and Coldest Winter and his use of autotune. The over all effect of the song and video is a vintage horror movie with a rocking track.

Now enough with the comparisons. People do it too much, but really it can’t be helped.  A sound and image can call up similar sounds and images. The song’s good I think, but has a heavy use of autotune. I guess I have to wait to see how well she really sings. But Zombie’s a good start to the album Perfectionist that is scheduled for a 2010 release. With Zombie she shows crossover appeal to America, but we’ll have to wait and see. And her new single Activate My Heart seems good too.

William and Mary Thriller

May 29, 2009 at 2:30 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , )

Just so you know William and Mary of Williamsburg, VA beat the Thriller world record of most people dancing.   The previous record was around 170 and now its 242.  More people have danced to Thriller at once, but they didn’t apply to the Guiness Book of World Records so they never increased the record. 

I was out there.  But unfortuanately you can’t see me in the video.  Although I can be seen in this picture.  There are more views of the dance considering that people were lined up on the sidelines to watch.  If only they had joined we would have had more people, but its over now so I shouldn’t dwell on it. 

Anyways our class president who is wearing the hat in the video was obsessed with Michael Jackson and Thriller.  He danced it everywhere and eventually convinced a lot of people to come out and dance to it.  So after several hours of practice we did the final dance that beat the record.  They were really strict about signing up people and counting. Watch the end its really creepy. 🙂  Well it was fun and I can say I was a part of a World record.

And as you can see some people dressed the part.
