The fabulous life

Roisin Murphy-Overpowered

Posted in Café de la Musique by daianara on April 12, 2009


Due to all the hits I’m getting with this entry, I’ve decided to put up an English version. It’s not an exact translation, but work with me on this.


After a very good first impression with “Dear Miami” (video somewhere below), I got the entire album it’s a part of (Overpowered), stuck a rake in it and put the songs that managed to filter through on repeat.

First impression: this is big. Literally. 17 songs.  It’s like: “Look mom, I can make music. So I’m gonna stuff as many songs as I can on a DVD until it spills out.  Unfortunately, the album only has 2 melodic lines: really fast & upbeat or slow, whiny ballads. On the other hand, it’s more than I can say for you Coldplay.  Reselling the same shit for the last 3 albums since launch actually. -_-

So, the songs that are gonna stay on my iPod (for a while) would be:

Oh yeah, just a random fact: When she was 9, Roisin put some money aside to get a haircut.  Hairstyle of choice? A flattop. :D


Dupa ce mi-a facut o impresie chiar placuta cu “Dear Miami” (video undeva mai jos), am luat intregul album de pe care face parte (Overpowered), am infipt o grebla in el si am pus pe repeat piesele care au reusit sa treaca printre dintii acesteia.

Prima impresie: this is big. La propriu. 17 piese. It’s like: “Look mom, I can make music. Asa ca o sa indes la piese pe un DVD pana dau pe dinafara.” Din pacate, albumul are doar 2 linii melodice: really fast & upbeat sau slow, whiny ballads. Pe de alta parte, e mai mult decat pot sa spun despre voi, Coldplay. Reselling the same shit for the last 3 albums since launch actually. -_-

Asadar, din piesele care mai raman pe iPod (for a while) ar mai fi:

Ah da, just a random fact: Roisin si-a pus bani de-o parte la varsta de 9 ani pentru a se tunde. Hairstyle of choice? A flattop. :D
