push the button

  • Ricky Gervais interviewing Chris Martin = BEST THING EVS!
  • 'New Radiohead Material Surfaces Online.' Er, not really.
  • The Guardian has a feature on Maximo Park who I think are genius!
  • Garbage was killing Shirley Manson but now that they've split she's doing much better.
  • Ricky Wilson plans to do some snooping when the Kaiser Chiefs visit Prime Minister Tony Blair's home. Gee, way to raise suspicion there Ricky!
  • Mike informed me that the new Arctic Monkeys single will be "Scummy" or "Sun Goes Down" (as they're now calling it).
  • Dodge posted some Lady Sovereign remixes. That's a good boy.
  • Who knew there was a "Do They Know It's Halloween?" music video! Certainly not me!
  • Boadwee Blog likes the same stuff we do so we're gonna be friends.
  • OMG! This is gonna be awesome! The Duke Spirit are absolutely BLISTERING live.
  • The countdown is on to Tabloid. Come out and meet me.
  • AND to celebrate it being Friday (and the end of midterms), I'd like to offer up 3 pop songs for your listening (dis)pleasure... Because after all, I may be the living embodiment of rock'n'roll but I'm still entitled to the many joys of listening to a cheesy pop song.
    1.
    Sugababes - "Push The Button"
    This is just a brilliant pop song. Like all of the singles from Sugababes. Absolutely brilliant.
    2.
    Rachel Stevens - "I Said Never Again (But Here We Are)"
    It's no "Some Girls" but it does contains the very suggestive line, "I let you in my back door".
    3.
    Charlotte Church - "Crazy Chick"
    This is BY FAR the cheesiest pop song I've heard all year - but I make the obsession because I love Charlotte Church for being a busty bad-ass boozer... She actually sings the line, "you got my acting like a whacked-out chick". Seriously. It needs to be heard to be believed.

    Anyway, don't take the music too seriously! Have a great weekend everyone!

    I'll agree that "I said never again" is no "some girls" but have you heard "negotiate with love"? it's the business and the maxi-single has the video.

    and yes, "push the button" is GENIUS!

    Excellent three tunes my Dear especially the Charlotte and Rachel. Man I miss hearing good pop music instead of the inspid stuff they play in the Met.Ro.

    Thanks for the updates. Man am I missing so very much. Babyshambles leaked. Kinks and New Order Joy Division in the R'nR Hall of fame (how were they not already!)More pete news and Geri with a baby!

    P.S. I saw Clor at the ULU when I was there and they were ace.

    Thanks for the most-excellent posts (and mp3s) the past couple of days!

    Still not sure what I think of the new Babyshambles record... The Libertines it is certainly not. However, I'll have to ponder and listen again this weekend... have a good one!
