Backstreet Boys – Helpless When She Smiles (Listen)I haven’t bought the new BSBs album yet, since I decided to put it on my Xmas list in order to have at least one thing to be excited about this Yuletide. I liked the first single, Inconsolable, even though every time I hear it I must still… Continue reading New Pop On The Block
Although I’ve only been here 3 months, my knowledge of Swedish radio goes back much further than that. I’ve been a listener of the following stations for at least 3 years, and regularly namedrop them on this site. Therefore I thought it about time that I presented you with my guide to the three best… Continue reading You’ll never have to put up with Edith Bowman again
When I witnessed the formation of Girls Aloud on Popstars: The Rivals 5 years ago I could not have imagined that they would go on to be one of the greatest pop groups of all time. I didn’t even care that much for Sounds Of The Underground, and when I heard the amazing No Good… Continue reading Dirrrty Pop Review: Girls Aloud – Tangled Up
Amy Diamond – Stay My BabyWell, Amy seems to have given up on the new mature direction (which turned out to be the same as her old songs but a bit boring) already and employed the one and only Max Martin to provide her with a song as cute and fun as we had come… Continue reading New Pop On The Block
Readers of my other music blog, Into The Groove, may have noticed that I haven’t been posting much recently, and may have stopped reading the site. Well, now you should unstop, cos I am back! And if you’re not a usual reader… why not? Go and take a look now! Similarly, my film blog Lights… Continue reading A public service announcement
But I suppose it might be quite favourable for my beloved Same Difference. If only Alcazar were more famous and they could do This Is The World We Live In. I also hope that one of Dannii’s contestants will follow Swedish cutie Mattias and sing This Is It. Speaking of Swedish Idol, I’m sad to… Continue reading Disco weeks are never a good idea
A highly unexpected event just occured. A Fergie song just came on the radio, and I actually turned it up. There are few singers I hate as much as Fergie, but unlike P!nk and Kelly Clarkson, until now she had never done anything I even slightly enjoyed. Then I heard Clumsy, and in the interest… Continue reading So maybe pigs can fly?
Cascada – What Hurts The Most (Listen)I don’t know if this is their new single in the UK but it is here in Sweden and before you ask, yes it is a Jo O’Meara cover. Well, OK, maybe the intention was Rascal Flatts, but if I remember correctly, Jo did release it several months before… Continue reading New Pop On The Block
MorelloAs far as I can tell, Morello is mainly a guy called Malcolm, and I have to say he’s the first cool Malcolm I’ve ever encountered. I was first intrigued by hearing he had a song called Exchange Student, since I am one at the moment, but I found the rest of the songs on… Continue reading The Next Big Thing?
Idol 2007I have finally caught up to date with the Swedish Idol programme, and am enjoying the show very much. My Swedish is improving but I still can’t understand very much of what is said (they speak fast!), so it’s interesting to watch a show and simply judge the singers for myself rather than being… Continue reading Reality Round-Up
