Sophie Ellis-Bextor - Songs From The Kitchen Disco

  1. The single has one of her best cover artwork, Edward Hopper realness.

    Aside from 'Mixed Up World' and 'I Won't Change You', I can only remember 'Love It Is Love' (during the short Trip The Light Fantastic Tour) and 'I Am Not Good At Not Getting What I Want' (during the Wanderlust Tour) ever being performed from the second album.

  2. What is with her and "I Won't Change You"? I truly believe it is one of her very best songs and a Top 10 smash, to boot. What is not to like? Perhaps it means something to her we're not aware of.

  3. It wasn’t big enough a hit to sell the album and she probably blames the album’s underperformance on that.

  4. I went to order the vinyl the other day and pink was sold out.... it's back now, so I snagged it + a white Kitchen Disco shirt because this era is iconic.
     
  5. She should blame it on the lead single, if that is the case. "I Won't Change You" remains a very sweet, underappreciated song.

    apart from the color, any differences with the regular blue one ?

    She’s performing on Strictly it takes two tomorrow night (well I think it’s tomorrow).

  8. Just that I think pink is more limited based on blue also being an Amazon exclusive.

    I Won't Change You has such a great video, maybe she was dead against it for single treatment??

  11. Yeah so good to hear she's going to get that promo. I'm pleased she's doing Crying at the Discoteque as well and not Murder or Take Me Home.

  12. The opening track of the Christmas Kitchen Disco is sorted then.
     
  13. She doesn’t like some of the lyrics in retrospect.
     
  14. Proggy-pop could be interesting, but Ed...
     
  15. If he could match his work with Paloma I wouldn't mind him producing for Sophie. It's not that it's bad, just nothing great/ Earth shattering. Which is what I want from Mrs. Ellis-Bextor.

  16. I think it is more than fine if she wants to write songs with Ed because her lyricism and ear for melody definitely have developed over the last two albums (I don't know if that's just experience or if he brings something out in her) but please get someone else to produce. I'd hope that the reception to the Kitchen Discos and working with Jewels and Stone and the Freemasons for Discotheque and Groovejet 2020 make her at least consider that option.
     
  17. “I tried to change a tyre but I’m not that way inclined” is still iconic.

  18. I can understand songs being left off vinyl or CD if there wasn't room but surely everything could have been released digitally/via streaming?
     
  19. I remember her saying it’s the “I’ll still change my underwear” line in particular that makes her cringe.

  20. I still stan 'I Won't Change You'. Gregg Alexander deliciousness, and the lyrics aren't cringey to me because I can hear the wry wink in Sophie's delivery. She finally came to her senses over 'If You Go', so hopefully her feelings on 'I Won't Change You' mellow soon too!
