I am so feeling The Feeling right now and can't wait to see them at V Festival later this year. And I don't usually like Girls Aloud ballads but WLH is just so achingly beautiful and the video brings a tear to my hardened heart. Or something. But the great news is that Alexis Strum's long awaited album is now on iTunes and Napster. Here is her version of Nothing Good About This Goodbye which Rachel Stevens did on her overlooked album Come And Get It...

MP3: Alexis Strum: Nothing Good About This Goodbye

    You (and xo and Joshua) should join up on Last FM. I linked it up on mine today. We can all be Last FM buddies and post crude messages to each other in the shoutbox and see what we're all listening to. Like, OMG, it'll be like we're in a sorority!

    I found a 5-track promo of Alex Strum's the first time I went to London, in '03, and "Nothing Good ABout This Goodbye" was on it. My bf loved it and it's been in his car ever since. Thanks for the reminder that I need to get my CD back from that hooker.

    Your bf was a hooker? Slut!

    I love this version of Nothing Good, though I love the other one too. The whole Strum iTunes thing sucks for Americans though.

    I will look at Last FM

    PS I think it's interesting that several of us bloggers are similar in age. I thought I was the only 30+ pop freak on the planet. How naive of me!

    He's not a hooker anymore, and we've just now got him off the smack finally.

    Well, 30 is the new 12, so there you have it.

    oh xo xo xo. You should come to the clubs in Birmingham on a saturday night (you too j'ason and hooker boyfriend!) ~ I've never seen so many people over the age of 20+10 squeel with glee and run onto the dance floor whenever S Club Don't Stop Moving comes on. Its white tank tops and feather boas as far as the eye can see...

    And Mr D'Luv! Don't feel bad that your bf was a hooker. (were you his pimp?) Its good money! (er, so i'm told, ahem). I imagine it was like Pretty (Wo)Man when you met ~ him on a street corner with a safety pin holding up his pants, you in a car working out how to get "your stick into the right place" and so on. Its all so romantic.

    I. Don't. Pay. For. It. ;)

    As for Snow Patrol, that song with Martha W is the only new one I have liked thus far. It's lovely.

    Woah, synchronised posting! Didn't mean to copy you, sorry. It's a great song, though.
