Alexandra Stan - Mr. Saxobeat

October 10, 2011 Critic Jonni 1 Comments

Alexandra Stan is another Romanian dance singer who has hit global success. Romania is definitely sending out the big guns now. We've already had Inna and Edward Maya, Alexandra Stan tops it all, and I assure you, there are far more to come, as I have mentioned in various other posts. This song has become number one in so many countries and have been in the top ten in so many more. It hit the UK chart at number 3 and it rivaled for the top spot but never getting there unfortunately. Also in the Top 100 we saw a cover version making it too, "Mr. Saxobeat" will definitely go down in history as the most played song on the radio, and I can't help singing along to it every time. Alexandra Stan now has a new song out called "Get Back (ASAP)". The song is released soon, so expect a review in the next coming weeks. After watching her new music video, it suggests that they are going to follow one another like Basshunter's videos do. I love it when this happens because you have a storyline that can stretch to eternity. And when a mega mix is made they fit nicely together, and they have to be played in order.

The song was written by Andrei Nemirschi, Marcel Prodan. The song is about Alexandra Stan being in love with this guy and trying to attract him by explaining the way he makes her move. The song lyrics are short and "sweet" but people still get them a bit confused, especially the chorus which is actually "You make me this, bring me up, bring me down, playing sweet, make me move like a freak, Mr. Saxobeat. He make me this, race me up, race me down, dancing sweet, make me move like a freak, Mr. Saxobeat". A lot of people think she is saying "Taylor Swift, makes me move like a freak", which would definitely be funny, but it's not the lyrics, sorry guys, maybe someone should cover the song and change the lyrics a bit? Her voice is amazing and definitely shows what Romania have up their sleeves. The song has a saxophone playing through-out and some trance beats are used. The song is very now as dance music is definitely in, it won't be long until one of her singles make number one across the world, mark my words. This song can be played again and again and I'll never get bored of it.

The music video is one I could watch again and again and I bet I'm not the only guy to say this. A lot of people have commented saying that one of the police guards looks a lot like Pitbull and I have to agree that he actually does and it makes me laugh every time. I like the whole concept although I very much doubt any guy could escape from prison by being sexy, so it is a little sexist, but we can't really complain can we?

What I would like to know is why she is sent to prison in the first place (my idea is that it's because of her first video being a little over the top, however "Lollipop (Param Pam Pam)" hasn't been released to the UK yet, so maybe the reason will appear somewhere down the line at some point? Or will it be a mystery forever?). I like the simple dance moves that she does (that's if you can call them dance moves) her little flicks of her hands and a few subtle turns is all she needs to do to grab certain people's attention.

Overall I love this song, and I'm quickly becoming a big fan of Romanian music at the moment. I'm definitely going to buy all future releases of Alexandra Stan (unless she goes down a music route I no longer like). And this music video is the start of something BIG I can just tell, I just hope the next few music videos will continue with this gripping storyline, just like Basshunter did. The song links in with the music video, however there is better ideas that would have linked a lot better, however it is what it is, isn't it?
