OPINION:

Again, there is much drama in this song, together with a smattering of atmospheric passion. Katerine’s voice is definitely ‘unique’ and she is more than capable of reaching any note, no matter how high or low that requires.

PREDICTION:

I hope this qualifies at the very least, although I feel at the end of the night it simply won’t be good enough to register the votes it really needs for a decent placing. Midway for me – and that’s generous!

LYRICS:

“Live for the mess
Make me feel ageless
No pain, no gain
Teach me carelessness

And I’m about to see all that’s made up
And everything they want from us
No pain, no gain
Once bitten, make way

And I can’t hide it
I won’t fight this
Yearning feeling inside

Gotta get

Better love, better love
All that we’re after
Way to love, who you love
Hoo ooh hoo ooh

Better love, better love
All that we’re after
Way to love, who you love
Hoo ooh hoo ooh

There’s nothing more to say to back it up
When I’m unafraid
I‘ve lost enough
Go on, hold on for dear life

‘Cause I won’t hide it
I can’t fight this
Burning feeling inside

Gotta get

Better love, better love
All that we’re after
Way to love, who you love
Hoo ooh hoo ooh

Better love, better love
All that we’re after
Way to love, who you love

Won’t you lean on me
You can lean on me
Let them look, don’t know, don’t care

Go deep with me
Go deep with me
Go deep with me

Hee hee hee
Hee hee hee

Better love, better love
All that we’re after
Way to love, who you love
Hoo ooh hoo ooh

Better love, better love
All that we’re after
Way to love, who you love
Hoo ooh hoo ooh

What you waiting for
What you waiting fo-or
What you waiting for?
What you waiting fo-or
What you waiting for
What you waiting fo-or
What you waiting for
What you waiting fo-or
What you waiting for
What you waiting fo-or
What you waiting for
What you waiting fo-or
What you waiting for
What you waiting fo-or
What you waiting for
Hoo ooh hoo ooh”

Written by Christopher Smith

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
