Well yep, so typical of me isn't it. I come back to my blog to write an entry now that Blogs Are Dead, and to make it worse the topic is the best (or my favourite, at least) songs of 2016 but it's 1st of Jan 2017. I am basically the last person on earth … Continue reading 2016: my favourite tracks
I have to admit that the sole reason why I watched The Perks of Being A Wallflower on the first place was Emma Watson. Like anyone who grew up loving Harry Potter, I have a soft spot for Hermione Granger and with the saga being done for good (sob), sometimes I go through withdrawal symptoms. The … Continue reading Music in movies: The Perks Of Being A Wallflower (2012)
ENG: Spanish boyband Auryn try their hand with dance-pop in their new single, titled "Heartbreaker". This is a big step forward for them, as it is by far their most solid and best produced single. Auryn's merit resides in the fact that they refuse to let their story play out the same way almost every Spanish band … Continue reading Auryn – Heartbreaker: Nuevo single, nuevo sonido.
Hello again to another installment of "Tegan and Sara are amazing: a Demonstration". If you follow me on Twitter you will know that all I seem to do every day is listen to "Heartthrob", their new album, and that's a hundred percent accurate. It's a very good album and it is currently #3 on Billboard, their biggest … Continue reading Tegan and Sara – Heartthrob (album): listen to the best bits
Radio 2 premiered today a second song from Girls Aloud's upcoming 'Ten' album, titled 'Beautiful Cause You Love Me'. It'll apparently be the second single after 'Something New', and well. I mean, it could have been better. It's a ballad, and Girls Aloud have never been a ballads kinda band. It's also not a Girls … Continue reading Girls Aloud – Beautiful Cause You Love Me
It's not strange to have had reservations about the return of Girls Aloud. A year break and a 3-album promise became a 3-year break and a Greatest Hits that feels more like a goodbye than a hello. During those three years, some of their solo careers took off and some fell faster than Felix Baumgartner, and … Continue reading Girls Aloud – Something New (New Single)
Little Mix have premiered their new single, titled 'DNA', today. This song is the band's second single, third, if we count the obligatory X Factor Winner Christmas single (but we don't). 'DNA' is noticeably darker than 'Wings', a substantial change from a poppy, light, fun sound to a much darker vibe that reminds me of … Continue reading Little Mix – DNA
'September' is the new single by electronic pop artist St. Lucia, and it is undoubtedly his strongest yet. As opposed to his previous self-titled EP, that offered a decent 80's influenced chilled dance pop, 'September' doesn't hold back one bit, and it is as magnificent and addictive as it can be. It starts with … Continue reading St. Lucia – September
I discovered Mumford & Sons' first album, 'Sigh No More', quite late. I had heard 'Little Lion Man', and even though I liked it, it didn't make me want to listen to the entire album. It was a sign of laziness on my behalf, because once I gave that album the listen it deserved it, … Continue reading Mumford & Sons – Babel (Album)
Tegan and Sara - Closer Tegan and Sara are kind of an alternative band, but they've wandered into the pop world more than once and always with success. I was obsessed with their Tiesto collaboration for ages and I sense another obsession coming with 'Closer', their new single. It premieres today and it has a … Continue reading From Tegan and Sara to Ke$ha: some great pop singles to enjoy this week!
Christina's new single, 'Your Body' leaves nothing to the imagination. With a chorus made of 'All I wanna do/is f*ck your body', it would seem that the singer is relying on controversy to sell, and that would be true if it wasn't because the track is an absolute bomb. This is no 'Bionic' material, 'Your … Continue reading Some amazing new music for your ears: Xtina, Kanye, Robbie and more
Alicia Keys is back with a new single, 'Girl On Fire' that comes in two different versions. The first version, titled Inferno, is a collaboration with a back-to-roots Nicki Minaj, who leaves all the pop and silly voices aside this time and simply delivers her verses in a way that's reminiscent of her first collaborations. The Bluelight … Continue reading Alicia Keys – Girl On Fire
