This song is currently making waves in the UK and is a sure hit worldwide. Winter Roberts, the songwriter with the strange name did an uplifting piece with a catchy rhythm and, interesting for us, a relally nice and heartfelt music video that is a perfect match! All in all it is said that it was produced for 5 pounds but, come on. An average Beta tape is more expensive... But, ok, for now we belive the label's marketing and enjoy good work. As you will see, the video is really made on the cheap, featuring footage shot over 2 years from old home videos assembled to be a full length music video of about 3 minutes.
1 Now who is Winter Roberts? Winter Roberts, actually Miles Winter Roberts, is a singer/songwriter born in England. But he quickly moved to Ibiza and spend most of his youth there going windsurfing. Later he moved to Hamburg and stayed there for many years. Then on for more traveling throughout the world. Later he started his own label, released some CDs and started the band Sidewalk7.
For those of you who found this post to read the Lyrics, here an excerpt from "Sha La La La In My Life": "... Why am I missing all those fancy does No wonder I got the blues (yeah) I wanna be a social satellite I want a little sha la la la in my life I thought I have some kind of blitz by now But lots of us have pretty things somehow Somewhere I can park my sexual drive I want a little sha la la la in my life I need a little sha la la la in my life I want a little sha la la la la la la in my life But don't know how I'm going to survive..."
