Sophie Ellis Bextor - 'Murder On The Dancefloor' (2001)
I was at a pub quiz in the week and during the music section, one of the questions was 'who sang this track'? I was so excited to hear it as I haven't heard it in years and I used to absolutely adore it! The video although probably low budget, was pretty amusing. I remember getting a bit annoyed with Miss Ellis Bextor for poisoning the B-Boys because they were clearly the winners with that impressive display of popping. The video was also obviously an attempt to create a dance routine for when this song was played. I tried very hard to learn it but with my two left feet the only thing I did well was stomp and clap where I should to the music!

When looking into the year of release, I saw on wiki that Sophie originated from Hounslow! Well I spent my teenage years there and its hard to imagine her porcelain doll face hanging out by Woolworths pic'n'mix in the highstreet or the age old grotty pub The Bell. To think, I could have brushed shoulders with her at the Hounslow Bus Garage waiting for the H98!
