This is such a bad day, for two reasons. After spending 4 weeks in the #1 spot, Sophie is down to #2 on MTV Dance. Guys, please vote, vote everyday. Here's the link - http://www.mtv.co.uk/channels/mtv-dance/chart
I'm kinda scared after reading Digital Spy's new post. I'm actually very scared. The one person who defines good music to me is Sophie. If she gave up on music, then i'm more than 100% sure that i'm never going to bother about anything music-related. I just hope she was joking when she said that. I want Sophie to make music for the next 50 years....

Sophie Ellis-Bextor has suggested that she would give up on music if her new material is not successful because her sound is at the height of its popularity.
The singer, who is gearing up for the release of her new album Straight To The Heart, said that her disco sound is musically on-trend, using Bloc Party and Snow Patrol's recent output as an example.
She told the Daily Star: "There's a been a resurgence in the power of DJ. You only have to look at the fact that Bloc Party and Snow Patrol's last singles had a trance edge."
"This is the longest gap I've ever had between records, but if I can't make it work in this climate I should give up because everything is '80s, a bit electro synthy and disco. That's exactly what I've been doing, but the new songs are a bit harder. It's the best stuff I've done. So let's have a go."
I have made up my mind. I'm buying the album in triplicate. Please support Sophie. Buy her music. Even if you're a casual fan who knows her just for Murder On The Dancefloor buy her music.
