hee hee. it’s official – i now like this song. i’m so psyched about this. fresh from the oven. so will get this posted before Unsteady Love!! 😉
not sure how many Sex And The City fans are there in the house, but i am a HUGE one. =) so it was a super treat when Akina opened her 2008 X’mas Dinner Show with “Labels and Love” (by Fergie of Black Eye Peas), and then lo and behold, she dived straight into The Heat!!!
i must ‘fess up that i HATED that song when it was released, it wasn’t particularly a strong track in my opinion. it being the first single release with Universal Japan, i had expected something with more oomph. i mean the song is ok, but i felt the tempo was a tad sluggish… listening to it, i kept waiting for explosions, but it just fizzled and fizzled and fizzled…. the loud bang didn’t quite appear. of course any lil pleasant aural experience that was left was completely massacred by that legendary big budgeted embarrassing music video bomb (both versions, thank you!). after that, this song was shoved into the dark corners of my Condemned Cupboard (okay but i know Auntie Suzy loves this track and has been on her replay for years!).
when i found out she was opening the DS with The Heat, i rolled my eyes more than Gillian Chung did when Edison Chen gave her… er, The Heat. but i must say, i was extremely perky when she first used the SATC OST as house music (when we were getting seated and digging into our fine French chi chi cuisine) and followed up with that aforementioned SATC Movie Theme Song Intro which led into The Heat very cleverly. omg, is Akina a fan of SATC herself!!? which is her favourite character? is it the same as mine – Miranda? does she identify herself with Carrie? in her 40s and still searching for elusive love?
anyway, in tribute to all SATC fans, i’ve been thinking alot about recapturing that kickass combo since we returned. we feel this is the strongest remix till date. we hope this will be a pleasant lil gift to all those who attended the DS, to relive those moments, and for those who missed it, hey, there’s always VAMP!!
here’s to getting Carried away! 😉
