Hit Alert! – ‘Beautiful Rain’ by OlaPosted: September 22, 2010
This is a new section that I’ll be starting up on the blog and it’s called ‘Hit Alert!’ in which I will, ahem, be alerting you of really great songs or hits. Clever name, eh?
My inaugural Hit Alert! is dedicated to a gem of a song. It’s called ‘Beautiful Rain’ by Swedish singer Ola and has been featured on his newly released album titled ‘Ola’.
Seems I’ve picked up my penchant for christening things after him. In anycase, I love this song and after hearing so many great euphoria-inducing pop anthems (‘S.O.S.’, ‘Natalie’ and ‘Unstoppable’) from him, its great to hear him do a completely different kind of sound that adds another layer to his voice.
‘Beautiful Rain’ is modern with a gorgeous chorus. It’s a mix of U2 and Roxette and is easily one of the standout tracks of the album. Check it out below:
