Hairspray and Albert Man

Back in the day in 2008 Hairspray was my favourite movie. I hadn’t seen it for a few years though, until it turned up as study material on the topic of civil rights. The main thing I realised is how I’d never noticed just how funny and witty it was until now! Here is You Can’t Stop The Beat from Hairspray:

What comes first, the music or the words? – its one of those ‘chicken and egg’ questions, but singer-songwriter Albert Man knows his answer:

Lyrics are so important to me. I always have a theme I want to write about first and try to get a title. I then write the lyrics before I start adding any music or melody. I will re-write the lyrics so many times too until I get something I’m happy with.

His new album, “Cheap Suit” doesn’t disappoint. You can read an interview with Albert and my review of his album, as well as downloading a free track here. Meanwhile, here’s the video to accompany the social commentary that is the title track ‘Cheap Suit’
