MUSIC VIDEO: Olly Murs - Dance With Me Tonight

X-Factor Series 6 runner-up and The Xtra Factor presenter Olly Murs, best known for his reggae/ska/pop fusion sounds, is following up his chart-topping smash hit "Heart Skips A Beat" with a new single called "Dance With Me Tonight". The song is quite different to the awesome summery-ness of "Heart"; strangely, comparisons to Michael Bublé, Duffy and old standard "Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree" are not unfounded.  

I can't say I'm very taken with the song at all (personally I think it's a bit shit), but it's so radically different to the overwhelming electro-pop bulk of what is currently radio staple that it could well end up lading the true lad extraodinaire yet another huge chart hit. 

"Heart Skips A Beat" (hands down one of the year's best releases thus far) and "Dance With Me Tonight" serve as the first singles to be lifted from Olly's upcoming sophomore LP "In Case You Didn't Know" - which, unfortunately for the world of Pop, he has confirmed will be largely different to 'Heart'.
