First up i am so excited that Darrien and Hollie won this years Strictly Dance Fever. I think they have improved so much and totally deserved to become the stars of this show. Check out their amazing freestyle dance entry in the finale here...



Plus kudos to the show for putting the oft overlooked Spice Girls classic "Spice Up Your Life" back on national tv :)

So Shayne Ward is releasing Stand By Me as his third single??



Don't spin in your grave covers haters, its an "original" composition, if you can call stealing the exact piano line from overused Simon Cowell fave "unchained melody" an original composition. I liked the first single cos i was swept up in the hype of X Factor, the second i tolerated because he is a good looking lad and i really wanted him to do well, but this? It's westlife by the numbers and judging from his uptempo numbers he did during the show, he is capable of much much better...

MP3: Stand By Me

Check out new(ish) band Switch 22 here and here. I really want an electro boy band in our charts and although i'd take Veto Silver first, I quite like the track Electric Girl on their myspace site...and the erasure/eurythmics sampling Sweet Dreaming is pretty fine. Anyone who describes themselves as such is ok by me:



"Stefan was created in a Swedish laboratory in the year 2022 to become the ultimate in pop pleasure. Swany crash-landed on a meteorites tail whilst cruising the galaxy in search of another superhero of pop. Together they have traveled in time gaining musical knowledge and strength to show the people of the new millennium that there is another hope."

    Listened to and deleted Shayne before I even finished reading this post. And people thought SAW were the demise of British music...

    its truly tragic is it not? you can totally tell its louis walsh behind him, pulling the strings of the puppet as he does with westlife and used to do with boyzone... shayne could be a real star but the material is just murgh!

    When is Shayne going to come out?

    This whole ' I love girls' and 'My long distance relationship' stuff is really starting to grate, even as much as the horrible music!
