Video Killed The Radio Star
Kylie Minogue – Giving You UpKylie’s meeting with Xenomania finally gets a release and already I’m forseeing disaster. This video is the weirdest, most unflattering thing I’ve ever seen! Kylie is walking around a town, getting taller and taller (which makes her bum look gigantic) and scarier and scarier. I guess it’s meant to be… Continue reading Video Killed The Radio Star
Oh my god, I can’t believe it…
I may have spoke too soon yesterday when I wondered if any of the brilliant songs out this week would invade the top 5, as both Kaiser Chiefs and Girls Aloud have succeeded, continuing GA’s flawless top 5 chart run. We’ll just ignore the fact that they are behind Elvis, Nelly and Jennifer Lopez. Also… Continue reading Oh my god, I can’t believe it…
Video Killed The Radio Star…On Holiday!
It’s time for another special edition of VKTRS and we are (metaphysically) travelling to Norway. Bertine Zetliz – Ah-AhThis is my favourite song by Bertine so I’m glad she’s releasing it, even if it’s just in her homeland. You may have heard of Bertine as the quirky Norwegian poppet who has worked with Richard X… Continue reading Video Killed The Radio Star…On Holiday!

Hanson – Lost Without Each OtherWho would have thought the new Hanson album could hold an even better song than Penny & Me? But it does and this is it. It’s a very upbeat, rock’n’roll singalong track, that should confirm to any doubters that Hanson are as ace as ever and remind all the old… Continue reading Video Killed The Radio Star

The Obligatory Love Songs For Valentine’s Day Post
Here are some great songs with the word love in their titles being released in the next few weeks: Idlewild – Love Steals Us From LonelinessI had never really taken any notice of Idlewild before and listening back to some of their old stuff I was probably right to do so, but even my mum… Continue reading The Obligatory Love Songs For Valentine’s Day Post
14. Jimmy Jansson For my final buff hottie of Fit February, we travel to my spiritual home of Sweden, which is also home to this lovely ex-Fame Factory contestant and Melodifestivalen entrant. He first caught my attention on the cover of Okej magazine when I arrived in Sweden and a few days later when I… Continue reading Fit February
Maroon 5 won a Grammy! I thought from this picture they had won 5 and got a bit overexcited, but it turns out they give them 1 each straight away, just to confuse us. Apparently they opened the show too with a medley of songs, but Ryan was not drumming, which is sad. He’s missing… Continue reading Hooray!
