Amy Studt - Misfit on MUZU.TV.

All day I've had Amy Studt's song: "Going Out Of My Mind" stuck in my head all day. Unfortunately it was never officially released as a single, so I couldn't review it. However "Misfit" is definitely the next best thing. Besides, the only way to get rid of a Amy Studt song that's stuck in your head, is by singing another Amy Studt song. Amy Studt hit the UK in 2002 at age 16, with her first single "Just A Little Girl", she released a few more singles including a cover version of "All I Wanna Do" in 2004, however due to low sales she was dropped and disappeared. She returned with a mature look and a mature sound in 2007 with 3 single releases including "Nice Boys", however her album failed to chart, and the single releases didn't perform as well as they should have done. She is now getting ready to release her third album, but she is also part of MercyMadeMe, who have just filmed a music video, I cannot wait to watch it and review it on my blog.

"Misfit" was written by Amy Studt, David Eriksen and Karen Ann Poole. This is what makes Amy Studt's songs catchy, because she's written most of them herself, or she has connected with the song amazingly. This song has started appearing here and there, it's been mentioned in a few books and has even been mentioned for the "Fifty Shade Of Grey Soundtrack". I think it will be one of those songs that probably isn't the best Amy Studt song, but will be the most memorable and the one that will forever be popping up here there and everywhere.

Now putting all biased views aside since I am kind of a big fan of Amy Studt, this music video isn't that great. Even for the time era, there was definitely better music videos, on the other hand this definitely looks low budget, but even then it could've been better. However it links in with the song, which is exactly what we wanted.

I like the Grease theme to this, you have "the pink ladies", and I have to laugh at Amy Studt all dressed up like Sandy, it definitely looks wrong. This song is all about being a misfit, and how it's good to stand out and be yourself rather than being in someone's shadow. I also like the ending and how she hopes that she gets spotted by potential talent scouts and the other girls are unhappy that she's the one who gets spotted. We all have those types of wishes right?

Overall a great song, however there are better ones on her album, it's accompanying music video isn't great, but it does link in with the song, and it also has a narrative that is easy to understand. I can't wait to hear new music from this girl, and I hope she gets the popularity she clearly deserves.
