Killer Monday...

Oooh, I had another piano lesson today and feel all creative all over again. This week I am told my fingering has improved (i knew it would - i've been practising on darren all week!) and I have started to learn the score to Wicked. It's put me in a right good mood...

Killers Stripped:


Not only are Brandon and his boys likely to be tops this Sunday (yes please) with the majestic When We Were Young, but one of my favourite music webchannels is holding an intimate acoustic session with them on October 3rd...usually this comprises of a few of their hits acoustic styl-ee and a cover version...So be sure to bookmark Stripped and then be right back here afterwards to discuss...

MP3: The Killlers - All The Pretty Faces

Blue Monday:

The return of The Bluetones is always a cause for celebration. Their new self titled album (ooo creative) is a lovely collection of songs about the sadder side of human life and speaks to the outside in us all. Songs like lead off single My Neighbours House give voice to that primal joy you may feel when it's not you when someone else is facing adversity. These are thoughtful, honest songs all flawlessly vocalised by Mark Morris' distinctive tones. And there is a great balance between smooth songs that evoke images of the band playing in a smokey jazz club and others that are just plain bold and brash. The Bluetones still deserve to be flying high...

Throbbin Hood!:


Where the hot fuss is Robin Hood? BBC One promised it to us on Saturday nights in September but its not on next week's listings. I am getting very anxious. I doubt it will be as brillo pad as Dr Who, but it's got to be slightly genius - i mean, c'mon! The guy wears a hoodie!! And exudes a little bit of sex appeal (well not in the pic above so much, but trust me). I remain expostulating in impatience...

HOT LINKS:

Check out a video of little Chavlette Church with Nelly Furtado doing Crazy over at popboyandindiegirl.... classic!

    The Elton John album has had brilliant reviews. Hey paul do you watch Spooks? It had an ex-Bad Girl member in it! Oh and Im posting again on PopEatsPop. This one is REALLY REALLY REALLY cool. Better than all the others.

    P.S. Pinkie, since you're chavvy, then embrace it, babe. We'll still love you.

    Definitely the best Killers B-Side so far, though their past b-sides have left something to be desired imo

    Stripped... The Killers.

    Oh, I might faint right now!

    *DUH*

    Pinkie- if ella said that it can only be a compliment!

    Dan - i am practically salivating for the start of Robin Hood and Torchwood (which i accidentally keep referring to as Touchwood - isn't that a shopping centre?)

    Jessica - thanks so much for those :) You rock the very most...

    J'Ason - try not to feel too guilty, it is their legitimate b-side to When You Were Young so people all over the land are hearing it anyway... did you just call me a bastard ;) ?! And Nick - it is one of their better b-sides it has to be said :)

    Samuel - I KNOW!!!! Colour me thrilled :)
    J'ason D'luv said...
    I did call you 'bastard,' but I meant it in that slam-you-against-the-wall-then-rip-off-your-knickers kind of way, you rough little badboy.

    Aww, Aussie Idol! I hadn't gotten around to listening to Guy's new single yet, so thanks for that; I have to admit, though, the Australian Idol contestant single I'm most looking forward to is Anthony Callea's, even though there's probably a 97% chance he'll lead off the album with some classical ballad.

    Instead of replying to all the other good things you posted recently: yay for Wicked, not-yay for Ryan leaving Maroon 5, trying oh-so-hard to not listen to JMac yet, and hadn't heard either version of "I Must Not Chase The Boys"--I like both!
