Caro Emerald's new video features Louise Brooks

How many images of, or related to, Louise Brooks can you spot in the new video from the Dutch singer Caro Emerald?



"Tangled Up" is the new single from Caro Emerald's new album, The Shocking Miss Emerald, which was released just a few days ago. From what I've heard, I like it.

I hadn't known of Caro Emerald before, and obviously, I've been missing something. The Shocking Miss Emerald (which brings to mind The Shocking Miss Pilgrim film and memoir by Frederica Sagor Maas) is Emerald's second album.

Her debut album, Deleted Scenes from the Cutting Room Floor, was released in January, 2010 and immediately went to number one on the Dutch album charts. The album stayed number one for 27 weeks, an all time record, beating out Michael Jackson's Thriller, which spent 26 weeks at number one in 1983. The album reached double platinum status in the Netherlands in July, 2010. In August of that same year it reached triple platinum, and by November it had gone quadruple platinum, before hitting platinum six times over by year's end. Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor would end up spending 104 weeks on the album charts, until it was removed due to a Dutch rule which provided that albums can't spend more than 2 years in the charts. It later returned and climbed as high as number eight.

So, how many images of, or related to, Louise Brooks can you spot in the new video from the Dutch singer Caro Emerald? For more on this fantastic singer, check out her website at www.caroemerald.com/

  1. Like this developing Weimar Redux trend. Another nice example is Regina Spekto 's rendition of Fanny Brice's http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-kTCE5Sc7F8 My Man.
