Private - Stranger In The Night

"I've got a feeling that you wanna do it, but what would your mother say?"

Have Private released the best retro pop album of the year? Quite possibly. At the very least, they've certainly given fellow Danes Alphabeat a run for their money in the category. For those unfamiliar with the band (aka: those who didn't read my post about them a few weeks ago), Private is the new project from singer/writer/producer Thomas Troelsen (the genius behind Junior Senior and Superheroes). The debut album, My Secret Lover, is the kind of instant pop classic where you can sing along after one listen while still appreciating the verve and inventiveness of the songs. To give you an idea of how fantastic the entire thing is, I'm posting Stranger In The Night, the final track on the album. I always say if you've got a track this terrifically hitworthy and it's not even on the first half of the record, you've got an amazing work. Stranger sounds eerily like vintage 80's Michael Jackson, a pinnacle of pop music that nobody's really gotten close to reaching until now. It's got a massive chorus, the kind of perfect melody we all hope fo in songs like this. And, like I said before, the rest of the album is just as good.

Thanks for sharing this song! It definitely has an MJ feel to it. I'm lovin' the harmonica ... it adds a bit of an original twist to the song.
