Jill Jones – Mia Bocca
Jill Jones - she's bilingual but not single. It's 1987 and all over the world the completely amazing Prince-helmed "Mia Bocca" fails to be a smash hit. Tut.
Liza Minnelli – So Sorry, I Said
It's 1989 and Liza Minnelli issues an apology.
Ace Wilder – Busy Doin’ Nothin’
Updating the sentiment of "Wham! Rap" for Melodifestivalen 2014, it's Sweden's Ace Wilder - she takes pleasure in leisure and believes in joy...
Paula Abdul – Cold Hearted
Here's a little story and you're sure to like it - Dan Poliak on everyone's homegirl, Paula Abdul.
Karin Park – Thousand Loaded Guns
Dramatic synth-pop from a 6'2" Scandinavian songstress. Where do I sign up?
Karen Ramirez – Troubled Girl
I have a terrible track record when it comes to predicting the Next Big Thing. Karen Ramirez was my pick for 1998, and it didn't turn out very well.
Jakie Quartz – À la vie à l’amour
We now return to the bottomless well that is Atmospheric French Pop.
Tanya Lacey – Now That You’re Gone
New contributor Elliot on one of our finest pop-stars-in-waiting, it's the very lovely Tanya Lacey.
Des’ree – Stand On My Own Ground
This is what happens to a pop career when Life gets in the way...
C.C. Catch – Strangers by Night
Great Britain joined the European Union in 1973. Perhaps one day pop will get that memo.
Dame Shirley Bassey – After the Rain
Very few people would make you wait fifty years for their best record. But that's exactly what Dame Shirley Bassey did.
Carly Rae Jepsen – Run Away With Me
Everyone likes Carly Rae Jepsen, but apparently only for one single per album. Luke explains why that's a terrible mistake.
Miss Lily Banquette – My Secret Love
Gosh, "You Don't Own Me" is everywhere right now isn't it? Therefore it's the perfect time for Into the Popvoid to salute Lesley Gore, writer of this fabulous, heartbreaking and revealing melodramatic masterpiece.
Kylie Minogue – Kiss Me Once
U OK HUN? Is the pop star Christmas album really a cry for help?
Sky Ferreira – Everything is Embarrassing
Joe Rivers on Sky Ferreira, Miley culture and one of the best singles of the decade so far.
Paris Hilton – Screwed
It's the biggest test of pop snobbery there is: can you admit to liking a Paris Hilton record? We can.
Siobhan Fahey – Bitter Pill
Because sometimes there's nothing better than a cheap fix of dirty electronic pop.
Kate Bush – Hammer Horror
1978's Hammer Horror - one of the few occasions on which we decided Kate Bush was just a little too strange for the charts.
Jazmine Sullivan – Bust Your Windows
A tale of revenge which is, quite literally, smashing.
Cher – Song For the Lonely
Do you believe in life after "Believe"?
