A few things to keep you amused on the Internerd: 1. There’s a great remix of Oh Father by Linda Sundblad on her MySpace page, and you can also hear two more album tracks.2. If you haven’t already, I recommend a listen to Take That’s Radio 2 concert this weekend.3. Remember Pauline who sang Answer… Continue reading To Do List

New Pop On The Block
Just Jack – Stars In Their EyesAs you may have noticed I’m a big fan of Just Jack and very excited about his 2nd album, which is out at last in January. Hopefully this song will be as successful as it deserves, or at least enough to get Writer’s Blcok re-released and make his album… Continue reading New Pop On The Block
Britney is working with Dr. Luke on her new music, and as every pop fan knows, when Dr. Luke pops up you know Max Martin can’t be far behind!
my interview with Mika! Until then, here is his performance from last week’s Jools Holland: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FykbQ81oOfQ]
DP Review: Margaret Berger – Pretty Scary Silver Fairy
Robyn, Annie, Bertine Zetlitz, Kylie, Girls Aloud, Madonna, Rachel Stevens, Marie Serneholt, Sugababes. A fairly comprehensive list of the best female acts of this century, and Margaret’s music not only sounds like all of them but this album could be a compilation of their very best recordings and biggest hits. Few people have paid Margaret… Continue reading DP Review: Margaret Berger – Pretty Scary Silver Fairy

He sang two of his fantastic new songs and you can watch videos of them right here. Robyn is (almost) here –… Continue reading News
Popping The Question: Can Take That Save Pop… Again?
If people think the mid-00s have been a bit barren in terms of poptasticness, look back to the early 90s. SAW were dying out, Kylie (and her old fans?) had gone indie, Madonna preferred acting, teenagers went to raves and no-one was really making great pop music – or if they were no-one was listening.… Continue reading Popping The Question: Can Take That Save Pop… Again?
New Pop On The Block
Gwen Stefani – Wind It Up (Audio)What a disaster! It’s a weird mix of The Sound of Music, Fergie and the Vengaboys. Who would have thought the Lonely Goatherd section would actually be the best bit? This is such a far cry from the brilliance of What You Waiting For and most of the rest… Continue reading New Pop On The Block
In a valiant attempt to put off my Philosophy essay as much as possible, I have been wading through the archives of some of the other pop blogs I try to read. While there are some great posts out there (and I will get to that in a minute), I was not quite sure whether… Continue reading Hmmph
The new album by everyone’s favourite Swedish rock-turned-pop chick, Linda Sundblad, is available now to buy on CD Wow. I’ve been a fan of Lambretta for years but their rock sound led to much of their music (apart from the usually ace singles) being a bit dull, but now she is a pop princess in… Continue reading Excellent News!
