Left Behind: Gossip "Heavy Cross"....
"Heavy Cross" is the first single taken from Music for Men, the fourth studio album by Gossip and was released on April 28, 2009 in the U.S. Beth Ditto (female singer) explained to the NME that the song is "about recreation and my friends, who I feel like are the ultimate creative re-creators." The single was certified triple gold in Germany, for selling over 450.000 copies (with Gold in Germany being 100,000 copies sold) and is now certified as "biggest selling international produced single" ever..
The female singer above Beth Ditto has a voice that you wouldn't think would come from her I.E very high and forceful with her runs. This band is an American indie band so instead of posting this as an "On The Lawn" Spotlight, I decided to give this one a left behind being that it's certified as "biggest selling international single ever...AND their album "Music For Men" is platinum worldwide! (Along with only peaking on Billboard 200 at 164). Check out one of my favorites....After the basic acapella beginning, the full beat hits and this "Disco punked female fronted band" takes it to another level..one word..DONE!
