What a Year It’s Been…

(Yes, I am one of those people in hysterics every week when Alan Carr says “what a week it’s been”. But then I laugh at Bruce Forsyth’s jokes on Strictly Come Dancing). In all seriousness, 2013 has been quite the year. Not only because it consisted of 365 days, all of which lasted twenty-four hours (although…

Four Pop Acts That The World Misses But Doesn’t Realise

The 411 The 411 are the best failed four piece girlband in the R&B genre of the noughties (poor Clea). Things started out so well for the band, with Ashanti-penned first single On My Knees going Top Five and more importantly being a good song. As a side note, it’s one of those songs that is not…

20 Good Albums From 2013

Here are my twenty favourite albums of 2013. Initially I thought 2013 was ‘a bit shit’ on the album front. But I was wrong. There have been some amazing albums this year (12-01 are all somewhere between 7-10/10). The others probably either weren’t as good as they should have been (in particular the Demi Lovato…

10 Amazing Live Performances from 2013

Little Mix – Move (from The X Factor) Move was the first time Little Mix sounded like the natural heirs to the thrones previously occupied by Girls Aloud. This performance only backed up this theory. On point dancing, on point singing and on point styling surprisingly makes an on point performance. Their arena tour is going…

Five Good Songs You Might Have Missed This Month

New music does have a tendency to get lost in December. In a time when sales are at their peak and the Michael Buble Christmas album is everywhere, new artists often get forgotten about (still mourning I Wish by Mini Viva). Saying that, there have been some good tunes ‘dropped onto the internet’ in the last month….

40 Good Songs From 2013

Given that it’s the end of the year, it’s probably a good time to write some words about my favourite songs of the year in order of preference. So here goes nothing. Just before we begin, I was reading something about blogging earlier in the week, which pointed out the importance of ‘content’. Which got…

Five Songs That Could’ve Been The Beyonce Comeback Single

It’s hard to believe that Beyonce didn’t actually release an album this year. Which means there was no comeback single. No shaking her bum whilst Jay-Z raps about chinchillas. No looking lost and wistful in a field. No army of women in the desert. :(. It’s times like these that fans of Beyonce may feel…

Tamera Foster and the ‘Tumblr Confession’

I was having a search through Tumblr earlier today for a Nicole Scherzinger gif appropriate for some uni work (true story). I didn’t find it (I settled for Sabrina The Teenage Witch) but what I did find has made me quite angry. If you search the word ‘Tamera’ on the micro-blogging site, you are barraged…
