New Pop On The Block

Stacie Orrico – I’m Not Missing YouThis is the first song from her third album, which will be released this August, and I have to say I’m quite disappointed – it’s nothing on Stuck, More To Life or even I Could Be The One. There is no progression from her old sound – it’s all… Continue reading New Pop On The Block

DP:UK Sylver – Lay All Your Love On MeSylver are a poppy dance act who are really big in central/Eastern Europe but unlike similar acts such as Lasgo and Ian Van Dahl, they have never had any UK hits. This is probably because they’ve never done any particularly good songs (unless I missed it, but… Continue reading DP:UK

Read this earlier post for my first comments on the song, and join me in… Continue reading For goodness’ sake!

What on Earth is going on?

It turns out Ireland are capable of making brilliant music after all!

This band are called Republic of Loose, they’ve already had a no.2 album in… Continue reading What on Earth is going on?


I certainly didn’t expect that!!! Finland were always going to do well but these joke songs always usually just get to the top 5 or something, they don’t actually WIN… I think perhaps if there’d been one particular song that had stuck out from all the ‘serious’ entries (like Helena, Ruslana and Sertab did in… Continue reading Blimey!
