Brainpool single premiere

Brainpool is B-A-C-K! Their new single, “The Last Christmas premiered today on Gaffa.se, made available on SoundCloud by Brainpool’s record label, Adrian Recordings. Single is out digitally on 27th November.

The single has a cute and at the same time interesting cover with this kitten and the golden grenade Christmas ornament she is playing with. The track itself is a real modern Xmas song including all the bells & chimes & some other strange sounds that help you to get into the mood, but still keeping the Brainpool sound through the whole song.

Not that I don’t like Wham!’s “Last Christmas”, but I’d be happy if this year all the radio stations would change at least half of the planned Wham! “Last Christmas” airplays to Brainpool’s “The Last Christmas”.

Just keep on doing what you do, guys!

THE LAST CHRISTMAS

© Brainpool

A five minute break in the midst of preparation
A cigarette to calm your precious nerves
Was it a sound? A reflection in the window?
The sudden presence of another world

But in the deserts of Iran – And in the mountains of Afghanistan
Everybody’s happy, everything is fine
Just keep on doing what you do – There’ll be no shadow hanging over you
There’s no need to worry, oh no – at least not tonight

Your memory drifts to the firm interrogation
With no United Nations by your side
But daddy is rich and your mother is good looking
So hush now little baby, don’t you cry

Cause in the deserts of Iran – And in the mountains of Afghanistan
Everybody’s happy, everything is fine
Just keep on doing what you do – There’ll be no shadow hanging over you
There’s no need to worry, oh no – at least not tonight

Aaaa…

Just keep on doing what you do – no acid rain is gonna pour on you
There’s no need to worry – at least not tonight

And in the deserts of Iran – And in the mountains of Afghanistan
Everybody’s happy, everything’s alright
Just keep on doing what you do – There’ll be no missiles crashing down on you
There’s no need to worry, oh no – at least not tonight

No cause for alarm, they won’t do you no harm
Everybody’s smiling, everything is fine
And in the ghettos of Sudan – and council houses in Birmingham
There won’t be no trouble, oh no – at least not tonight

 

Update 2nd December: Aftonbladet shared the video to this song. Not a usual Xmas video. 🙂 Click HERE for watching!

“It’s possible” lyrics

Got to grab a pen & paper
Got to write a tiny note to you
I can’t get you out of my system
… There’s something very difficult about you

It’s possible
When I get that feeling
It so revealing
It’s possible
When you’re givin’ that look
I just wanna oh-oh-oh!

People tell me all the wrong things
People tell me I don’t have a clue
There’s something in the air, I just know it!!!!!!
Like patches on the skin it stick like glue

It’s possible
When I get that feeling
It so revealing
It’s possible
When you’re givin’ that look
I just wanna oh-oh-oh!

The sound of your heartbeat
Promise so much
The sound of your heartbeat…”
Promise so much

Du du do do do do
Got to write a tiny note to you
Du do do do do do
There’s something very difficult about you

It’s possible
When I get that feeling
It’s so revealing
It’s possible when givin me that look
I just wanna oh oh oh

When I get that feeling Its so revealing
Its possible When you givin that look

I just wanna Oh Oh Oh
I just wanna Oh Oh Oh
I just wanna Oh Oh Oh

“It’s possible” – cover and duration

According to Play.com – the “It’s Possible (Version One Radio Edit)” with duration of 2min 35sec is to be released on Monday, March 4. The German radio show “Hey Music” on Radio Berlin informs that “It’s possible” lasts for 3min 22sec. We have no information at this point which information is correct.

The B-side of the first single will be T&A Demo of “It’s possible”.

Update: It turned out that correct duration is 2:34 for the first single, which makes it the shortest one leading single in the history of Roxette.

“Speak to me” single is released!

“Speak to me” vinyl single was released on Wednesday, May 25th in Sweden. We can finally provide you with some photos of the cover and vinyl itself. Unfortunately, EMI Music did not pay enough attention to proofreading process and instead of correct “original” we got “orginal”, which makes the single really “orginal” item in your collection!

If you have not purchased your copy yet, do it via Bengans.se!

Thanks to Petra Osifova.
