SONG OF THE DAY: SAM SPARRO – CLINGWRAP

I’m sure there’s an inspirational quote out there somewhere that says you should do one new thing every day, or something along those lines. Well I think for today’s new thing you should listen to this song. I’m assuming of course you haven’t already and I only make that assumption because it’s an unreleased album track from Sam Sparro’s self-titled debut album released over ten … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: SAM SPARRO – CLINGWRAP

She signed her first record deal aged 13 and since then has been nominated for a Brit Award, worked with Rudimental and appeared in the film ‘Brotherhood’ (2016).Her debut album ‘Diary of Me’ (2016) was largely made up of guitar-driven tracks, but since then she has begun experimenting with her sound using influences of trap, soul, … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: MAHALIA – I WISH I MISSED MY EX

SONG OF THE DAY: NAO feat. SIR – MAKE IT OUT ALIVE

Nao is undoubtably one of the most exciting artists to emerge from the UK in the last few years.

I’ll be seeing her in a few … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: NAO feat. SIR – MAKE IT OUT ALIVE

SONG OF THE DAY: ETERNAL feat. BEBE WINANS – I WANNA BE THE ONLY ONE (LIVE GOSPEL VERSION)

Last week I documented how my passion for music began in the late 80s with Kylie Minogue, well a few years later in September 1993, Easther, Vernie, Kéllé and Louise – collectively known as Eternal – released their debut single ‘Stay’; well and truly solidifying my love for music. Their debut record ‘Always and Forever’ is the first CD album I owned and it’s one … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: ETERNAL feat. BEBE WINANS – I WANNA BE THE ONLY ONE (LIVE GOSPEL VERSION)

SONG OF THE DAY: USHER feat. BEYONCÉ and LIL’ WAYNE – LOVE IN THIS CLUB, PART II

A few months ago I wrote a post about a few Mariah Carey remixes that I thought were better than the original versions, and this remix of Usher’s 2008 single ‘Love In The Club’ is another example of when that happens. It’s not just the addition of Beyoncé that elevates the song, but lyrically it’s far more interesting than the original which is simply just … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: USHER feat. BEYONCÉ and LIL’ WAYNE – LOVE IN THIS CLUB, PART II

SONG OF THE DAY: RIHANNA – KISS IT BETTER

A break-up-to-make-up song never sounded so good. Arguably one of the most full-bodied tracks from Rihanna’s 2016 album, ‘Anti’, Rihanna sings confidently over a hypnotic electric guitar riff about the fallout from an argument with her significant other. “Man fuck your pride” I would say the accompanying video is NSFW as there’s a fair amount of (pierced) nipple on show here… Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: RIHANNA – KISS IT BETTER
