Single Wars

Last week was a landslide for the almighty Scissor Sisters, who have a whole day of Radio 1 devoted to them tomorrow… and this is the day when I get an urgent call to do an extra day of work. Disaster! Now, to take my mind of that terrifying ordeal, here’s this weeks contributors saying… Continue reading Single Wars

If I Wasn’t A Celebrity…

In the style of Heat’s celebrity spotting section, here are some sightings I have made of decidedly un-famous ex-residents of Planet Pop trying to find their way back to the top spots they never really had… Jamie Tinkler (ex-member of Pop! who also entered Pop Idol 2003 and Song For Europe 2002) spotted as part… Continue reading If I Wasn’t A Celebrity…


Girls Aloud’s new single Something Kinda Ooh premiered on Radio 1 this morning and I am very much in favour of the track on first listen. It’s probably their danciest track yet, most comparable to You Freak Me Out and Wake Me Up out of their past recordings, but even more brilliantly catchy and absolutely… Continue reading News

Definitely a better… Continue reading News

He’s just released a double a-side download single (is it possible for a download single to have 2 sides?) which combines the jolly Scissor Sisters-esque Relax Take It Easy, which is… Continue reading New Pop On The Block

First up is Chris (aka Klee) who wrote about the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and their new single Cheated Hearts: “The first time I… Continue reading Single Wars!

DP:UK Margaret Berger – SamanthaOne of the absolute best songs I’ve discovered recently is this wonderful electro-pop single by Norwegian Idol star Margaret. She previously released a pretty good song called Lifetime Guarantee but this outdoes it by a million, it’s just fantastic! I love her voice and the jolly yet sophisticated style of the… Continue reading DP:UK
