Pixie Lott - All About Tonight

31 August Critic Jonni 0 Comments

This song is extremely catchy and I can't help but sing-a-long to it, and also move to the dance beat that is behind this amazing song. Pixie Lott is very well-known here in the UK, and she has attempted to crack Europe a few times, but not managed that well, and although she has thought about trying it in the US, quite a few time, I reckon she is nervous and the people behind her think it will be difficult to crack it there. For the time being, she needs to get back on track, here in the UK. Her first two singles "Mama Do (Uh Oh, Uh Oh)" and "Boys and Girls" managed to get to number one, but the following singles were much more soulful, and although they became big hits, they failed to be catchy enough to make it to the top. BUT this song has very much turned things around and she is definitely back on track, and I'll be very surprised if it doesn't make number one.

Her song says that she has "a new attitude", and she definitely has changed herself, proving that she is determined to get back to number one, where this song obviously needs to be. Personally I think she looks great, and occasionally she looks like Tamzin Outhwaite. This song is kind of similar to her number ones, and so it's predictable that she's bound to do well with this single.

The song has it's own little meaning. The lyrics hence the fact that she's split up with someone, however instead of drowning out her sorrows at home, she's gone out with her mates, and it's "All about tonight". I really like the bit where she sings "Grab someone if your single. Grab someone if you're not", which is a great twist in the storyline and it suggests that you have to be careful when you go out clubbing as the person you are dancing with may just be someone who is currently in a relationship.

I love the song, and the music video works well with it, although they definitely could have more of a narrative twist on things. However it shows a fun filled night, and shows she's changed and become someone new, lets just hope there are some number ones thrown in for good measure as she unquestionably deserves a few more. Also, and I'm not entirely sure if this is true or not, so don't quote me on it, but I think she wrote this song herself (looking back at her debut album, she is in all of the writing credits, apart from the covers she did, which shows she is meant to be in music). [EDIT]: Songwriters are Pixie Lott, Tebey Ottoh, Brian Kidd and Tommy Lee James.

I believe this video is pretty similar to Basshunter's "Now You're Gone", which actually made number one. However the only BIG difference is that Basshunter has a massive on-going storyline that works really well, however Pixie Lott doesn't and if it doesn't make number one I'm definitely going to blame the fact that narrative was missing. I also like the fact that there is a lot of dancing, which kids and children can copy, which will definitely help her to achieve a number one hopefully.

Overall I love this song and it's stuck in my head all the time, I have to admit I didn't like it at first but it's definitely grown on me now! However the music video could, and should of been, much better! And to be honest I don't want to give it this rating, as I fully love this song, but I have to be critical and so here goes, and I hope some of you agree!
