There was no song played on the radio in 1990 more than “Black Velvet” by Alannah Myles. In fact, to date, the song has been played over 5.5 million times (which is… well… A LOT). “Black Velvet” also helped Alannah Myles win a Grammy Award, tons of Juno Awards and launch a career that still sees Alannah making new music and performing. Dave O recently SKYPED with Alannah to discuss how the song came to be, how she pulled off the “sexy look” in the “Black Velvet” video, what the future looks like and much, much more.
