Geraldine Quinn - Shut Up and Sing
2010 Golden Gibbo Nominee
What makes a hit pop song? Lady Gaga wearing a frock made from balsa wood? ABBA cheerfully singing a date-rape romp called "Waterloo"? Lindsay Lohan shrieking in bathtubs? Beyoncé spasming in spandex?
What's she missing? How do you write a popular song huge enough to be heard distorted through the tinny speakers of a cheap knock-off iPhone on the Frankston-bound train?
She's sung with Paul Kelly and Debra Byrne, written a song for Hamish Blake and played with a pianist who accompanied Ella Fitzgerald. Now Geraldine Quinn (Spicks and Specks, Comedy Channel, BBC Radio) will uncover the secrets of pop to write a SingStar-calibre hit. Move over Fergie! And pull your pants up, for God's sake.
