Review: Caro Emerald – A Night Like This

Caro Emerald – A Night Like This is one of the lesser known electro singles from 2009. This vinyl single has that bossa nova sound backed with that laid back lounge sound and vibe performed by a big band and Caro Emerald herself. Fans of jazz will enjoy this single. Some of the best jazz from New York City, New York and The Netherlands.

Caro looks for a man to make her night feel complete on A Night Like This. However she feels as her night is incomplete. Here A Night Like This uses Latin salsa styled beats over lounge jazz and bossanova.

From where you are, you see the smoke start to arise where they play cards. And you walk over, softly moving past the guards. The stakes are getting higher. You can feel it in your heart. He calls your bluff. He is the ace. You never thought he’d play that much. And now it’s more than all these cards you want to touch. You’ll never know if winning this could really be enough.

Caro has never dreamed it. Have you ever dreamed a night like this? She cannot believe it. She may never see a night like this. When everything you think is incomplete starts happening when you are cheek to cheek. Could you ever dream it? She has never dreamed a night like this. This is one of those surrealistic magical nights. Take a look beyond the moon you’ll see the stars. And when you look around you know the room by heart.

How many times has Caro been waiting by the door to hear these chimes to hear that someone debonair has just arrived? And how many times has Caro opened up to see my world before her eyes? That silhouette creates an image and a night she can’t forget. The night has the scent of something special. She can’t resist temptation. Caro walks away and suddenly it seems she is not alone. He stands in front of her. Caro stops before he goes on.

Stuck is based on Caro Emerald’s persona of a woman who married a man after being promised jewelry and perfume and all sorts of lavish gifts during their courtship, but he couldn’t deliver, and she feels stuck (hence the title) in a marriage that she is bored in and no longer desires. However, she can’t deny that they have a chemistry, and she realises that she loves him anyway at the end of the song.

Caro closes her eyes and dreams about a sunny holiday. She wishes that she was beaching down on Saint Tropez or sitting in the lobby at the fabulous ‘Pierre’ with diamonds on her fingers and not a single care. Instead she is on the avenue where nobody goes with fields of green that wilted like a last summer rose Some people call it paradise but she calls it pain.

He promised her a motorcade and endless perfume. A palace in Geneva with a perfect view and dreams painted yellow like the color of gold. And dine with kings and queens ’till the food gets cold. This dream is now a comedy she doesn’t wanna see. Some people call it laughter, but she call it pain. Caro knows they have a chemistry which is a heavenly combination.

I rate this single 5/5*****!
