Tobias Froberg - When The Night Turns Cold
Kev Eddy 16/08/2006
This song belongs on a mobile phone advert - you know the ones. The mobile phone ads where people begin flying around a magical world of fairies and pixies and rainbows as soon as they start having a phone conversation. Yes, those ones - the adverts which seem to acquaint arranging a night out with your buddy with a really freaky acid trip. And, to be fair, the feeling that this song is just waiting, legs akimbo, for an ad exec to snap it up doesn't ever really go away. However, the infectious twee-yet-somehow-Motown sixties feeling does penetrate your brain rather effectively. All in all - quite lovely, but smacks too obviously of commerce.
