Representing the UK: The Courteeners – That KissThe Courteeners are one of those bands whose name I know very well, but I couldn’t have told you where they were from, what they looked like or what they sound like (apart from indie). Until now, when I heard a song with a great chorus on this… Continue reading International Video Challenge
Senior Year is the third in Disney’s High School Musical series, yet the first to appear on the big screen. This means everything needs to be ten times as spectacular: the songs, the dancing, and most of all, the cheesiness… and although the first film will always be the classic, I think they succeed. Sharpay’s… Continue reading Dirrrty Pop Review: High School Musical 3
Just now listening to the new Sugababes album (rather good, but the last one was better), I had a realisation. I have no idea what Klas Åhlund looks like, so in my mind he is a rapping teddybear!
So, I was brave and watched the first episode of Britannia High. The prospects weren’t good: It’s on ITV, and the premise seemed very familiar. Anyone remember I Dream? Anyone remember what happened to S Club 8 after I Dream? Exactly. However, there’s nothing I like more than a teen drama interspersed with singing and… Continue reading High School TV Series
1. One of the writers of Girls by the Sugababes is Anna McDonald, the new Pipette who isn’t Gwenno’s sister! 2. If you sing Purple Rain in a Spanish accent, it sounds like “I only want to see you in the pot pourri”! 3. Is this the most genius (for its simplicity) money-making scheme ever?… Continue reading Discoveries of the Week
Cry For You has been out for ages now and has been a deservedly huge hit, but still there is no official word on what will be the next single. However, I just read a very disturbing rumour, that it is going to be a brand new song. On one hand it is exciting to… Continue reading Wake me up when September gets a new song out
I’d seen them on the release schedule, but I never believe it until I see the videos on TV. Now I have, so we can officially celebrate and jubilate: E-Type and Blue Lagoon are coming to the UK! First, a quick crash course for the uninitiated (where have you been?)… E-Type – True BelieverOne of… Continue reading The European Invasion of 2008 continues!
Evidence #1: The bonus track on the new album is called We Wanna Party, just like a Lene song which sounds quite Aloud-y. Evidence #2: They have covered Lene before, on the song Here We Go, although the original singer was Moonbaby/Miranda Cooper. Evidence #3: The song has the words “out of control” in it,… Continue reading GA cover Lene Nystrom… again!
Sometimes I wonder if it is something I dreamed up, because things happen there that are just too amazing to be believed. On their Idol programme they’re at the same point as X Factor, and last night was the first of the live finals. Last year was the first series I watched, and I remember… Continue reading Is Sweden even real?
I’d be surprised if no-one else has picked up on this already, but I hadn’t heard about it and it is quite hilarious. For some reason I just remembered the TV show Boys Will Be Girls, where boyband members were turned into a girlband. I Googled it to remember who’d been in it (I didn’t… Continue reading Austin Drag, more like!
