Someone Else’s Hell: “Losing You” by @JaneBadler


JANE BADLER, “Losing You”

While Jane Badler is better known as an actress whose characters you love to hate – raise your hands if you love Diana from “V” –  she is developing another career as a singer of unpredictable alternative pop.  From her forthcoming album Opus, the USA-born, Australia-based Jane brings us “Losing You”, a Latin-influenced smoky-jazz pop tune which may contain the best vocal yet that I’ve heard from her – and I’m a big fan of her “Yesterday’s Tomorrows” from a few years back.  You could put “Losing You” somewhere between Eartha Kitt and Amy Winehouse, and like those two singers it’s largely because Jane’s voice doesn’t bring another particular singer’s voice to mind… so I’d love to have her duet with Rufus Wainwright!  But I digress.  The video for the song is a treat.  While we’ve seen other videos use the door-to-door imagery many times before, the director draws us in regardless of how unsympathetic Jane’s character is.  Does she get what she deserves in the end of her own personal hell?  You decide!  Beautiful costumes, unique makeup and characterizations, and a convincing story all make it work.  Watch below and get “Losing You” on iTunes on August 11.

[…] “My Skin On Your Skin” is a sensational new dance club floor pleaser by Swedish DJ/producer Esquille that just happens to feature a vocal by the ever-diverse Jane Badler.  It’s a real throwback to some of the songs on the racier side of disco such as Musique’s “In The Bush” or Poussez’s “Come On And Do It”, but with a trendy techno-sounding vibe that gives it 90’s qualities.  In any case, it’s a fast listen under 3 minutes, but you can go with the full blown Stonebridge club mixes which are available as a separate single on iTunes.  I’ve loved hearing Jane in a dance music setting since the commanding remix of “Yesterday’s Tomorrows” a few years ago, she has just the right voice to help take “My Skin On Your Skin” that much further, so this is a great pairing!  Don’t forget also to check out Jane’s new album Opus on iTunes, which features the engaging and dramatic new single “Losing You” which I wrote about recently.
