Music of late
Well firstly I've been loving the Doves album, though having said that I didn't much like it on first listen, but it's one of those things you warm to. Something that still bugs me though is that the piano in Black and White Town is completely replicated on various other songs on the album. In fact I'm meant to be seeing the Doves this evening, but I seem to have misplaced the tickets, by which I mean, my dad probably chucked the envelope in the bin and a) can't remember b) can remember, but doesn't want to say.
So what the fuss?
This is a new song by Stevie Wonder feat. Q Tip and Prince and I believe various others. I've only caught this once but it sounds awesome! Then again I am a Stevie Wonder fan, favourite being Superstition . Anyway, yes, try and have a listen!
I like the way you move
I could probably look and find out, but I really love this song at the moment. I can't remember whether I heard it on the radio or out and about somewhere but it's good.
Franz Ferdinand vs ???
When at Ramshackle a good few weeks ago, I was intrigued when a remix of Jacqueline and something else I didn't recognise came on. About a week later I read about it in the NME and it said exactly what it was…I then promptly forgot and now can't remember which copy of the NME it was in. If anyone knows what the remix is, enlighten me, it was sooooo good.
So there has been much controversy of whether the new Oasis single is any cop or not. Having tried to listen to the first play (but accidentally oversleeping, accidentally turning the radio off and having my ears full of shampoo for the first three plays), the first time I actually managed to get a listen of this song was on the first play of the video that accompanies it a few nights ago. I don't QUITE get the concept fo the video but I'm still pondering about that. The lyrics, however, are understandable and very intriguing and the song seems to be a return to absolute classic Oasis, but just a bit cleaner round the edges.
