"I'm the guiding star that always shines for you"

I am absolutely in love with Velvet's new (finally released) album. The hyper-clubby type of dancepop that she records can be annoying when performed by a lesser artist, with lesser songs, but The Queen is about as consistent an album as you're going to find in 2009. The handful of brand new tracks are amazing (the giddy Radio Star, in particular), but I'm going to post an older track from the album today because I'm dangerously obsessed with it right now. Come Into The Night sounds a lot like the stuff Star Pilots have been recording lately: heavy on the synths and very 80's. Even for dancepop snobs (and that can sometimes include me), I think there's a good chance that this track will still be appealing. For one, it's performed with the vigor of a rock song. Modify the genre a little bit and this could just as easily have been recorded by the Galvatrons. It's got that huge, sci-fi disco sound to it--processed drums, surging synth riffs. But the thing that makes this song completely stand out from the others is the chorus. Just when you think it's going to head back into the verses, it explodes with one final, euphoric declaration.
