Well, i just convinced some of my buddies that Paolo Nutini is so much more than the new James Blunt (even XO reader Blunty Bitch - name edited for my dad's eyes!) - his album crashes in at number 3 - when there is already a new sensitive singer songwriter on the so called block (what block!)

James Morrison clearly follows Paolo into being classed as the next Blunt, although in recent interviews he has claimed that he doesn't want to be a huge stadium filling megastar...I feel there are several factors working against him however. There's the name to start with, which brings to mind a certain sixties rock deity as well as that man Blunt.Next are the scruffy good looks and irrepressible toothy smile. And most significantly the voice provides a qality debut album with dark tracks like Call The Police ("I've lost control and i really want to see you bleed") and lighter more polished tracks like number five debuting single You Give Me Something with slick orchestration and obvious chart topping potential. Doesn't want to be a star? Looks like he won't have much choice...

MP3: You Give Me Something

After posting some forthcoming smashes on saturday (and rudebox is growing on me, and my friend Paul loves it!) here are some new singles that possibly no one is looking forward too...

MP3: Haylie and Hilary Duff - Material Girl
MP3: Louise - Slam

My eyes are rolling so much i look like i am seizing...

    Only you would follow James (Jim?) Morrison with the Duff Sisters. And a side comment that Paul likes to show off his nature trail. Hi Paul and Hi Paul!

    ilToo bad Haylie got dropped from her record deal. Now we'll never hear her version of "Screwed." La sadsy.

    ah when you can't get enough of that wonderful duff... i really tried to like hilary once (partially because i thought her song The Math was pure pop genius on an s club 8 level) but she just bored me. I hear Haylie is doing broadway now she can't get a record contract. How Deborah Gibson of her - talking of whom, her duet with jordan knight is the third most added song at AC radio this week. I have no idea what that means :)

    AC radio is Adult Contemporary, i.e., snoozy lite rock/ballads... but still, that's great that it's getting added to playlists on stations.

    its kinda a snoozy song to be honest - its not one debs wrote and she can write some kickass ballads. (is that an oxymoron???)
