Island Mele: ‘Girl’ a quantum leap
REVIEW BY JOHN BERGER / email@example.com
Although Aidan James made the transition from precocious child novelty act to serious entertainer several years ago, this new single is a quantum leap towards adulthood for him.
‘THE GIRL ON THE TV SCREEN’
Aidan James (RSM)
Not to put too much pressure on a guy still in his mid-teens, but it sounds like his producer, Nashville-based song writer Tommy Cecil, spent a lot of time listening to everything Bruno Mars has recorded or produced and has plans to create a similar sound for Aidan.
Mars is certainly a successful template to clone from, and Aidan does a good job at it. The song is about wanting to have things like “the name, the game, the fortune, the fame,” going “stretch limo riding,” and being able to “turn the night up all the way to crazy in the Maserati” with the girl on the TV screen.
No question about it, Aidan’s not a kid any more!
