We Should Be Dancing... But We Chose To Fight
First off... apologies for my lack of updates lately and thank you for continuing to follow my adventures in pop. I'm going to try to update more regularly... otherwise I'd have to shut down and I don't want to do that. I've considered sharing posting duties if someone wanted to join the YouDontKnowPop team.
But enough of that let's get back to the music! BWO have released a 3rd single in the Uk with - Lay Your Love On Me and although they've managed to garner some radio support this time, they single entered the chart this week at #69. But that isn't necessarily bad news since the physical single still hasn't been released!
I read an interview with Alexander where he was asked why Uk radio has suddenly jumped on board and started promoting the new single and this was his answer which I LOVE:
"I think what they like is that we're not manufactured. We've had too many Idol winners and too many boybands and too many girl bands. I hate manufactured music, I like music that's organic and real. With BWO it's obvious we're real because a major record company would never put together a group featuring a 47-year-old man, a 43-year-old woman and a 26-year-old guy who looks like he's brought mum and dad on stage with him."
So to the Uk record buying public... please go out and purchase your copy of - Lay Your Love On Me this week and get BWO into the top 20 where they belong!
To celebrate I'm posting a song i just recently discovered from the band! One of my favorites since the first album I have to say!
