There is something coming in Autumn x
Oh please spill or share the source of Queen Gina returning.
I think of her as the pop princess who got to have her (chocolate) cake and eat it. The album only let's some air in with Missing You Like Crazy, and it always puzzled me that they never got Motiv8 or Metro to remix it. We got 6 (6!) excellent singles (Todd Terry tarted up Everytime I Fall wonderfully and the Metro remix even gave her a Freed From Desire piano break - how I am still alive after this overload of euphoria I'll never know).
I once had the demo of Next To You (the Nintendo version if you will), and a song called something like Feel The Music, but both are trapped on an ipod shuffle that has lost its charge - does anyone know how to rip the music from these things to a laptop?
Undone was also so exciting for what more she had in store. I know it was never a single, but I mucj preferred it to Tonight's the Night.
Anyway, that unmistakable, exuberant siren of Ooh Ahh and Gina's unquenchable excitement that was basically her trademark. Fresh! is quite simply the best of the 90s dance acts albums. Corona come close. Dannii too much of a snob to really go for it with the Girl track listing. Cher recorded Gina's reject Runaway (although Ms. Gardner doesn't really have the pipes for it) and both she and Madame Enrique were so obviously in her trail with their own albums big hitters.
Beyond her A&R agony, she also made some poor choices (not counting the "sign here Gina" conflama of course) and seemed to have severed relations with her Next 2 U co-writer (basically her Terry Ronald if you will) when being so determined to release the song and ditching them or something like that (they were not happy with her).
