Dark, melodramatic with a bit of vamp thrown in

Dark, melodramatic with a bit of vamp thrown in? Sounds like Diana, one of the greatest science fiction villains, from the TV show “V”. But no, it describes the music of songstress Jane Badler.

Of course you should all know that Jane Badler played Diana in “V”, the classic 80s mini series. She also played a different but still imposing Diana in the “V” reimagining. And lets not forget her stint in “Neighbours” playing, who was it again? Oh yes, Diana!

What you may not know is that Jane Badler is a talented singer in her new hometown Melbourne and has released two albums.

Jane’s latest album is “Tears Again”. Her website describes the album as follows:

On ‘Tears Again’ she has also worked with internationally acclaimed producer Paul Grabowsky to deliver a record that reflects Jane’s long and varied career in Hollywood B films and television soaps throughout the 70s and 80s. The album pays homage to the smoothness and the melodrama of the era.

A perfect description.

Jabe has recorded a video for the song “Men Who Lie”, a tragic story about failed relationships with an awesome spoken monologue. Check it out.

The album is on iTunes along with Jane’s debut “The Devil Has My Double”. With song titles like “I Want A Lot Of Boys To Cry At My Funeral” and “The Doll That Cries Real Tears” you just know that you’re going to love both these albums.
