  1. Gina G always had amazing remix packages











    Even though I have every CD single I'd love an expanded reissue of Fresh to gather all her best remixes together.

  2. I remember seeing the Ooh Ahh CD single at a store window and wondering if she was Gina and the g was just a logo thingie like her own ®
     
  3. I love the art direction for the Fresh! album.
     
  4. God Tier;
    Ooh Aah..
    I Belong To You
    Gimme Some Love

    Top Tier;
    Ti Amo
    Rhythm Of My Life
    Fresh
    Everytime I Fall
    Higher Than Love

    Middle Tier
    It Doesn't Mean Goodbye

    Still one of the best pop albums of all time. I still listen at least once a month and never get sick of it.

    Would love a vinyl and expanded CD release. Intrigued at what's coming this year..

  5. I've just this week gone back to Get Up & Dance. We really were blessed to receive a full length album of unreleased Gina material weren't we! I'm not clued up on the timeline of these recordings at all, but I love imagining which ones were lined up for Fresh 2.0

    Heaven - Glorious, but only with Gina as a featured artist.

    Stuck On You - The Thunderpuss production is iconic, lots of potential here.

    Into The Night - This seems to widely regarded as an album highlight. Imagine this being the lead single for album two!

    Little Black Book - Absolute pop gold, this might be my fav on GU&D.

    Kinky - Fresh! on steroids, this really feels uniquely Gina at her cheeky best.

    Sticks & Stones - This has really grown on me. Makes for a wonderful album closer, what a joy this would have been live.

    Supernatural Live - Very much demo sounding, but could this have been mastered up into a fantastic off-the-wall single?



    Such a solid album!

  6. The lady herself messaged me earlier to wish me a happy birthday.
    Since we’re doing this:
    Top tier:
    Ooh Aah
    I belong to you
    Fresh! (It feels weaker than the others here but I’m putting here as, to me, it’s such an original sounding song)
    Ti Amo

    Great tier:
    Gimme Some Love
    Every time I Fall
    Rhythm of my Life
    It Doesn’t Mean Goodbye

    Good tier:
    Follow the Light (never totally loved it)
    Higher than Love (if this was released as the 2nd single as once planned, I don’t think she would have done as well- it’s the most similar to Ooh Aah)
    Ooh Aah remix

    Lower tier:
    Need I say it?

    Get Up and Dance is a great collection (I don’t regard it as an album as it’s a collection of songs recorded over the years- there are SO many more).
    Best songs:
    Kinky (Fresh! on speed is a perfect way to describe this)
    Heaven
    Shock to the system
    Tease (this would have been on the planned follow up but a slightly different mix)
    Sun goes around the moon (easily her best ballad)
    Little Black Book (although I don’t think it’s quite single material)
    Flashback (LOVE this!!)
    Get Up and Dance.

  7. Can we have some love for this slamming bop please??

    I'd forgotten how hard this slaps! Not vocally perfect but it sounds bloody hard to sing.

     
  8. Always been a big fan of this too

  9. I always forget Show Me… and Burning Up!
     
  10. Am sure some of you have seen the poor video of the girl banging her side and going "aahh" that's gone viral...

    Well we have a winner!

  11. Any future edition of Fresh! HAS to include this.

  12. Unlike most of her fans, Gina G is all tops and no bottoms (or maybe that's why MYLC was included after all). The peaks peak so high, Fresh! remains on the 10.

  13. It's a wonder they didn't give this another bash. The Donna De Lory realness of it all.

  14. As cheap as those Soda Club songs are (and boy are they cheap), they somehow manage to pop Gina's sugar-rush cork and are mega.

  15. Totally! I can definitely see that whole Clubland sound could have been something she went into. Perhaps more guest vocals, I'm sure many acts would have been happy to have her.

    Show Me has a really Gina feel lyrically, the banging chorus really reminds me of her hits. Who knew it started life as a very different sounding track.... this performance. Oh my.

  16. Yes, I meant for Fresh! though. I guess this was to Gina, what the Eiffel 65 remixed re-release of Everyone Has Inside was to Gala.
     
  17. Nice little inclusion on tonight's story of TOTP for Gina. Highlighting her record breaking seven performances of Ooh Aah. Legends only.

  18. And if you include the TOTP Great British Song Contest special, it was actually 8!
