DP:UK Maria Arredondo – Mad SummerHere’s a lovely and super-catchy summer song from a few years ago, by a Norwegian-Argentinian singer who unfortunately seems to have only released crap ballads ever since.

Video killed the TV star

Who needs TVs these days, when you’ve got computers? The only reason I ever watch is to see the new videos on The Box, and now you don’t even need to do that because you can watch my version, Dirrrty Pop TV! It doesn’t have any adverts or bad songs, you can find out the… Continue reading Video killed the TV star
