Lionel Richie – Hello Video Breakdown.

An obvious choice for me this, I don’t know why I didn’t put pen to paper sooner on this, so to speak. Possibly one of my fave ever music videos. Let’s take a look first this time and then I’ll break it down. Wooo the song is starting! Oh, no, wait. Lionel wants to do…

Eric Carmen – Hungry Eyes Video Breakdown.

Eric Carmen – Hungry Eyes. I’ve lifted this post from a previous post. I just thought this needed a post of it’s own. We’re vastly in danger of a video deconstruction here. It’s no secret that I love this song. I’ve talked about it before. One thing we haven’t done though, is discuss the MENTAL…

2017 Top 40, Part 4.

10: George Michael – Praying For Time. (551 Plays, New Entry.) What a fucking tune. I really miss George Michael. If you didn’t see it, the documentary thing that was on a few weeks ago was absolutely brilliant. He was an incredible performer as well as an amazing song writer. I think Praying For Time…

2017 Top 40, Part 3.

20: Weezer – My Name Is Jonas. (381 Plays, New Entry.) Oh Weezer, you’re the best. I could quite happily spend an entire day just laying down and listening to Weezer. I might have to do a special post about them sometime and put up my fave tracks. They’re the kings of geek cool. I…

2017 Top 40, Part 2.

30: Snoop Doggy Dogg – Gz & Hustlas. (314 Plays, Down 4 places since last year.) The first time I heard Doggystyle I would have been about 12 or 13 years old. It was incredible. I instantly fell in love with it. Firstly, lots of swear words, always a fan. Secondly, his lyrics are just…

2017 Top 40, Part 1.

40: Olly Murs – Dear Darlin’. (134 Plays, New Entry) Not even started writing about the first song in the chart yet and I’m already pissed off because my keyboard doesn’t fucking work. This year’s chart may seem slightly more bitter than usual, ha! So, Olly Murs is kicking us off this year, apparently. A…

Lyrical Deconstruction. Eric Carmen.

I was bored. I took a moment to ponder the other side of the following conversation. “Oh, hey, Eric. You alright? You look a little troubled?!” “I’ve been meaning to tell you.” “Ok, go ahead.” “I’ve got this feelin’ that won’t subside.” “Have you seen a doctor?” “I look at you and I fantasize” “Erm….

Lyrical Deconstruction. Whitesnake.

This will be a quick one, and I’m not really aiming for humour here. Whilst I love this song, I hate the lyrics. You’ll see why below, as it’s not really written well at all. I should have known better Than to let you go alone Go where? These lyrics never really tracked with me….

Lyrical Deconstruction. Heart.

So, Heart’s power ballad classic, All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You, is a phenomenal song. I love it. It’s long been a fave of mine. I’ve spoken about it many times, not only as a great song, but as a song that is a perfect example of people not listening to the…

We Need To Talk… About James Blunt.

That’s right. James Blunt. He’s one of my favourite human beings. Why? Because I think he’s quite simply brilliant. Others seem to hate him, something I’ve never quite understood. I thought I’d just break him down a little bit and examine what it is he offers us and to see if there is anything to…

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…
