Introducing the Hardline.

13th of July, 1987. Introducing the Hardline According to Terence Trent D’Arby was released. 30 years old today. It’s an incredible album, one I still listen to today. Here are just a few of my fave tracks.

Guilty Pleasures.

I take issue with the entire concept of songs as guilty pleasures. I’ve used the phrase on here, but only because I know by using that you’ll know what I was saying. However, I think it’s a stupid idea. Here is why: The phrase guilty pleasure is generally used to describe consuming something that is…

54.

54 is how old George Michael would have been today. His music had a big impact on my life. Wham! were very much part of the classic 80s soundtrack, and then into his solo work he built amazing songs around his stellar voice. He just had so much about him. His voice, his looks, his…

Skunk Anansie, Mother Fuckers.

A playlist of one of my all time fave bands. I don’t care that I go on about them a lot. You can get fucked if you have a problem with it. These aren’t in any particular order. I love some more than others, but these are the songs of their’s that you should have!…

All My Little Ones.

Currently, with regards to writing a blog post, I feel like Whitney Houston. Don’t worry, I’m not going to take a load of drugs and then get in the bath. That was last night. I just mean, “I Have Nothing”. Anyway, I’ve been listening to a range of stuff today, so thought I’d share some…

The Phrase That Pays.

My eyes can’t believe what they have seen. In the corner of your room you’ve stockpiled millions of my memories. Oh Doctor, Doctor, I must have gotten this sick somehow. I’m going to ask you a series of questions, And I want them answered on the spot, right now. “Is it serious?” “I’m afraid it…

Guest Playlist!

Yes, that image was tits with headphones on. So, I’ve got a new playlist for you. It’s going to be 40 songs long but I didn’t technically write it. 17 Year old me wrote it. I found a Mini Disc labelled “The Best Album In The World Ever”. So, let’s see how 17 year old…

+22 Agility: The Playlist Strikes Back.

When I write the blog, I put in tags and stuff in html in order to get the text centred, or a different colour, or whatever. The bulk of the text I have fully justified. Whenever I write the tag out to do this, my head goes “and they’re ancient”. Little insight into my stupid…

Watch me original rub-a-dub style.

Again, I don’t know why I pick the titles I do, I just do. Mostly they’re samples from songs that for some reason I have a hard time forgetting. Then, for some reason, whilst typing that last sentence I had a blast of Ultimate Kaos running through my mind. Hoochie Bootie! They’re coming at you…

400 Came And Went.

The post I did a few days ago was actually the 400th post of this version of the site. Imagine that. I don’t think any version made it to that. 259 posts of a single song helped mind you. Whilst we’re on the subject of music, this post is very much set to the theme…

2016 Top 40, Part 4.

10: Robyn – Dancing On My Own. (572 Plays, New Entry) This seems to happen every year where a slightly more unlikely pop song seems to breach the top 40. This year I guess it’s the turn of Robyn. Been a fan for a while of hers, ever since ‘Show Me Love’ in the 90s….

2016 Top 40, Part 3.

20: Bruce Springsteen – Streets Of Philadelphia (452 Plays, New Entry) Another song that was just beyond the top 40 last year, and another song that’s in my top 5 all time songs. Streets of Philadelphia is one of the few songs that can make me cry every time I hear it. I have to…
