FRESH: ‘Yes You Did’ – Elan George

Elan George says “Yes You Did”!

UK pop singer Elan George has just released his new, 80’s infused tune “Yes You Did”, which sounds a lot like the theme song from The Raccoons! With rolling electric guitar and synths as Elan delivers his feelings of meeting someone for a laugh but finding you actually have true feelings for them. “Yes You Did” was recorded at Steelworks Studios which has played home to some big names from the pop world such as Five, Sclub7 and Bille Piper.

Elan tells us: “I have always dabbled in songwriting but really began to take it serious after spending some time teaching dance to the youth of South Africa. Every kid want’s to dance to the latest popular music but so much of it is unsuitable due to explicit lyrics orviolent/sexual content. So I wanted to work on tracks that adults can vibe with but young people are positively influenced by”.

He adds: “After recording the track in an aid to promote it and drum up interest before the release date I decided to do a Vlog about it. With some behind the scenes and telling people all about the track and while it was meant to be serious, because I was working with friends, it was such a laugh and so funny at points we changed the motivation behind it and kept all that in”.

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!
