  1. 120517-TheAttic-RememberTomorrowToday, I would like to pay tribute to The Attic and one of the greatest pop albums of the 00s: “Remember Tomorrow”

    The Attic I am talking about is those guys, not to be confused with those guys (iTunes and others seem to have them mixed up)!

    Hunky and Funky

    The Attic are (were?) Swedish DJs/songwriter-producers Michael Feiner and Eric Amarillo, two childhood friends who started in 2003 as “Stereopol”, subsequently re-branded themselves as “The Attic”, and now go by their stage names “Michael Feiner & Eric Amarillo”, both together and separately.

    Michael Feiner is the hunky one, also on lead vocals and saxophone.  Eric Amarillo is the funky one, also on guitar... 

  2. 120509-AyumiHamasaki

    Ayumi Hamasaki (浜崎 あゆみ) is without a doubt, Japan’s biggest pop star of the past 15 years.

    Ayumi Hamasaki released her 13th studio album last month (“Party Queen”).

    With 13 albums since 1998’s “A Song for xx”, 3 EPs, over 50 singles, countless compilation and remix albums, live videos, over 52 million units sold and counting, Ayumi Hamasaki has become the highest-selling Japanese solo artist of all time and has earned the title of “Empress of Pop”.

    Musical style and collaborators

    Ayumi Hamasaki’s musical style is a combination of electropop-rock, guitar-heavy power-pop and ballads.  It has gotten somewhat “harder” over the years and often features epic production...

  3. "Naughty Dreams" started with a lyric from David B.  The lyric naturally invited a sexy pop-dance feel, and that’s what I tried to do with the music.

    My original treatment of the song was a bit “eighties” and not up to the standards of today’s pop-dance music productions.  So we brought in my friend Viceroy to update the production.  Viceroy also came up with a new interesting chord at the end of the choruses and suggested that we double up the bridge.

    The result is still a bit “eighties”, but rather than “stuck in…” it’s now more of an “homage to…”

    Overall I’m very pleased with the song, which could equally work for a female singer.

    At night when I go to sleep
    I creep into bed under my silk sheets
    I close my eyes so don’t you wake me up
    It gets so hot, I can’t get enough
    I can’t get enough of… 


    Naughty dreams
    Naughty dreams
    Doin’ all kinds of dirty things – dirty things
    Feel the heat
    Feel the steam
    Deep inside my naughty dreams
    Naughty dreams
    Naughty dreams
    Doin’ all kinds of dirty things – dirty things
    Feel the heat
    Feel the steam
    Deep inside my naughty dreams 

    Hot hands all over my body
    Deepest pleasures take over completely
    It’s so crazy, so freaky, so hot
    Don’t want it to stop. I can’t get enough
    Can’t get enough of… 


    Naughty Dreams


    Fireworks goin’ off around me
    Exploding with sexuality
    No self-control, I feel so free
    Fantasies become reality


    Naughty Dreams… 

    [Repeat chorus]
