Spotlight: Lady Gaga

I have managed to spend a record amount of time avoiding Lady Gaga’s whole musical existence (aside of Poker Face) but I have heard so many wonderful things about Joanne that I finally felt I had to tackle the enigma that is Lady Gaga. The verdict is that she is definitely an artist with two […]

Spotlight: Robbie Williams

Yes I’ve lived in the UK all my life.  Yes I’ve grown up with Take That and Robbie Williams on the radio.  Yes, Robbie Williams’s famous hits Angels, Rock DJ etc. etc. have been blasted at me from all directions.  No, I haven’t actually listened to a Robbie Williams album all the way through.  Yes, […]

Spotlight: Adele

This evening I should have been at a concert.  Adele.  Wembley Stadium. She cancelled for all the right reasons but I am still majorly disappointed as I’ve never seen her live before, there are rumours that she may never tour again after this and despite being a Londoner I’ve never had the occasion to go […]

One Love Manchester

A month ago I didn’t know anything about Ariana Grande.  Her name was vaguely familiar but I didn’t know about whence she came or her style of music (although I guessed it wasn’t up my street). Then 22 May happened and suddenly she was front and centre, thrust into the news for all the wrong […]

Ed Sheeran – ÷ (2017)

🌟🌟🌟½   I was not, like everyone else in England seems to be, an Ed Sheeran fan right from the start.

I was not, like everyone else in England seems to be, an Ed Sheeran fan right from the start. I was put-off from trying him out because I couldn’t understand why a singer-songwriter and ace guitar player would want to insert rap into his songs.  Also, I’m not keen on the constant references to smoking, […]

Keith Urban – Fighter (feat. Carrie Underwood) (18/52)

I am a latecomer to Keith Urban’s music, with him only really coming coming into my music orbit with his album Fuse.  Ripcord is another hitmaker though and one of my favourite songs from it is Fighter with Carrie Underwood despite it being completely uncountry and totally pop.  It is just so happy and positive […]

Soundtrack to my 2015

{35 Albums} All albums must be released in 2015 to make the list 2015 is the year in music which saw me seeing the classic lineup of Fleetwood Mac perform an awesome concert together, Adele  came back onto the music scene with the Lionel Richie-esque Hello, Rob Thomas released an album with insanely catchy songs, […]
