She got the whole world dancing to the music in her head
It’s only about a decade overdue, but the UK is finally awash with Robyn mania! This week With Every Heartbeat was single of the week on Radio 1 and my local radio, and I even chanced upon a short interview with her on Oxford’s hideously mainstream Fox FM. It really was a surreal moment, one… Continue reading She got the whole world dancing to the music in her head
Glastonbury for lazy pop fans
I’ve collected together all the ace pop performances (or at least the ones that have made their way onto YouTube) so you can enjoy them free of Jo Whiley and The Who… http://www.youtube.com/p/65BECD19389E24CC
I have so far not paid a bit of attention to this year’s Big Brother, and hadn’t a clue who was in it – at least until today when browsing in WHSmiths I spotted a familiar face on the cover of Star magazine. Either that is Zac from Northern Line, or he has an extreme… Continue reading Ex-Star-Spotting Mania!
International Video Challenge
Representing Canada and America: Rufus Wainwright – Rules and RegulationsI saw Rufus live last night and he was of course as wonderful as ever. He told us about this video so I rushed to check it out when I got home, and he doesn’t disappoint! It’s a bit ‘comedy gay’ but done with elegance and… Continue reading International Video Challenge
New Pop On The Block
Aly & A.J. – Potential Break-Up Song (Watch)I can’t help hating Aly & A.J. – I just hate their faces! While I’m sure they’re actually lovely girls, if only in the sense of being devoutly Christian, there is still something slightly evil in their smiles. However, this song is actually really catchy and fun –… Continue reading New Pop On The Block
Bits & Bobs
Ever wished for a YouTube just for music, not video? Well, here it is in the form of the strangely-named yet brilliant Imeem. Sadly it probably won’t last much longer as they’re being sued by a record company, so make the most of it while it lasts and look up all those tracks you want… Continue reading Bits & Bobs
Am I getting old?
Possibly – I’ve started listening to Radio 2 and I’m becoming quite a fan! So far this week I’ve heard a concert by the Pet Shop Boys and a performance by The Bird and The Bee, while the playlist has provided such delights as Tiny Dancers, the jolly Wallbirds and Duke Special – quite a… Continue reading Am I getting old?
Have I just lowered my standards, or have the British public suddenly got taste? I remember in 2005 there were only 3 good number ones in the entire year. 2007, however, has top 5s like this: 1. Umbrella-ella-ella2. Mutya Buena – Real Girl3. Beyoncé Beyoncé & Shakira Shakira4. Hellogoodbye – Here (in Your Arms)5. Maroon… Continue reading Untitled
A general rant about pop and blogs
I have to admit I find most pop blogs these days totally boring. So many are just saying “Here’s a song I like”, or much worse, “Here’s the whole album of a famous artist”. For me it totally defeats the object of having a blog if it just becomes a list of songs to download.… Continue reading A general rant about pop and blogs
