Alcazar - Glamourama

"I can see your glamourama shining bright"

Consider this post a tribute to the band that should have been in the Melodifestivalen final this Saturday. Headlines is still one of my favorites from this year, but Alcazar have been creating top-class pop music for years now. The fittingly-titled Glamourama is a little-known track from 2005, relegated to b-side status. However, it's one of the group's most aggressive grooves, built on a looped guitar that adds an incredible sense of urgency to the mix. The group is pure camp, but know how to deliver it in a mainstream way tailor made for the dancefloor. This, with an energy somewhat remeniscent of Alphabeat's excellent Touch Me, Touching You, is not something you can sit down and drink tea to. In fact, sitting down at all is pretty much impossible. The final third, when the beat drops out then slowly builds back for what seems like forever, is simply epic. The lyrics are pure cheese, but they're not important. It's all about the production, here. Consider this one for the club kids. Play it loud.

why was this not a single? I'm always stunned when people hide away such brilliant tracks! It's like every Abba album track in the late 70s! Single worthy!!
