Alarm Pop isn’t just about putting the spotlight on brand new releases from the biggest stars, or songs we reckon are going to top the charts in the future – it’s also about showcasing the ones that got away. Amazing songs by amazing pop stars that never quite set the world alight, but, thanks to Maximum Pop!, their memory will live on.
Today’s song of the day is the bombastic ‘Automatik’ by Livvi Franc. In between writing above average tunes for the likes of Britney Spears, Cheryl Cole and Cher Lloyd, Livvi also found time to record this stomping dance-floor-ready track with hit maker RedOne, but unfortunately it wasn’t enough to make her a household name. Perhaps it was because of the awkward spelling of both the song title and her surname – enough to confuse anyone. And nobody likes confusing pop.
Watch the video for Livvi Franc’s ‘Automatik’ below and let us know if you think it deserved more attention than it got.
