Saturday Night Song #24

Tonight's SNS is 'You Bring Me Joy' by Amelia Lily.

Amelia was a contestant on the UK X Factor in 2011, and was brought back into the live shows by a public vote when one of the male contestants was asked to leave. Amelia ended up progressing through to the final, and finished third overall. This is her debut single, to be released on September 2nd.

I was indifferent towards this this song when I first heard it, but it was firmly stuck in my head and it's a real grower. Have a listen and see what you think!

It reminds me a little of Katy Perry/Miley Cyrus/Pink in their early days, only with a really laid-back late night Summer track in the background. I really like it, and I'm delighted to see Amelia releasing original material, she was one of my favourites from last year's show.

Have a great Saturday night,

S xx


  1. really really enjoyed this post. had no idea amelia was going to release a single. great video, great song. the bridge (well the weird bit towards the end which didn't sound anything like the song) felt a bit disjointed/disconnected/wtfish {that's a word} but other than that, woooooooooooooo.

    I am hoping the americans will warm to her, even if at some stage they will compare her voice and facial features to christina aguilera a bit xx
    love you amelia lily xxx

    1. I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I really like Amelia too and I was happy to see this, I really hope she does well xxx And I know what you mean about the end bit :)x

  2. I adored Amelia's voice on the X Factor and totally fancied her, I was glad when I found out about her releasing solo stuff. I'm not generally a fan of this type of music, but this one I really, really like.
    I also LOVE ther look in the video, hair, make up, wardrobe, the whole package

    1. I love her look too, the video's really nice. I kinda wish she'd release something more edgy but maybe next single :)


Talk at me!
