Holly Valance: Somebody Out There (Video)
In 2003 Holly Valance released an amazing album of strong electro-pop tunes called “State Of Mind”, but nobody noticed & she was dropped from her label as a result. Alas few people got a chance to know how good the second album was (or were put off from buying it after purchasing her much more successful but vastly inferior first album), with the second album just released, Holly’s Record Label (London Records) dropped her rather than go ahead with planned second single release “Curious”. We all know commercial pop albums are created to contain at least 4 potential single cuts, on this premise I created this video as I believe it would have later become one of those four single choices (& because it is one of my favourite tracks on the album). It was so sad when Holly was dropped (with such a strong & well structured pop album ready to go), rendering all the potential classic pop songs contained on it dead in the water. This track is but a preview for the other “gems” contained on the “State Of Mind” album, that never got to become single releases or even get the chance to become pop classics. A great pop track lives & breathes again!
