SONG OF THE DAY: KYLIE MINOGUE & JACK SAVORETTI – MUSIC’S TOO SAD WITHOUT YOU

Kylie Minogue is the artist who first drew me in to music when I was just a few years old. The first music recording I ever owned was her 1989 single ‘Never Too Late’ on vinyl (which I still have). My walls were covered with Kylie posters and I even used to dress up like her… Yup, that’s me in a custom-made pencil skirt and … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: KYLIE MINOGUE & JACK SAVORETTI – MUSIC’S TOO SAD WITHOUT YOU

COVER OF THE WEEK: WHITNEY HOUSTON MEDLEY – JADE NOVAH

OK, ordinarily I wouldn’t go near a Whitney Houston cover. The bar is just set way too high and most performers struggle to even come close. However, when I saw this one was done by Jade Novah who I KNOW can kill it vocally, I decided to give it a go.With this near eight minute medley, Jade tributes Whitney with such dignity by maintaining her … Continue reading COVER OF THE WEEK: WHITNEY HOUSTON MEDLEY – JADE NOVAH

SONG OF THE DAY: JAMIE WOON – MESSAGE

Jamie Woon’s debut album ‘Mirrorwriting’ would be classified somewhere in the urban electronic/dance music genre although there’s no hiding the soul in his vocal delivery. His second album ‘Making Time’ leaned much more heavily in to soul and R&B and for me this musical shift only elevated Woon’s incredible songwriting ability.The album opens with ‘Message’, my choice for today’s Song of The Day. The track … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: JAMIE WOON – MESSAGE

SONG OF THE DAY: DEBORAH COX – NOBODY’S SUPPOSED TO BE HERE

There’s really not much to say about this song because just from reading the title above, a wave of 90s nostalgia will have washed over you and you’ll be feeling the desperate urge to hit play on the song below.So go ahead and click play on what is probably one of the greatest R&B records of the late 90s, a song that his Cox’s most … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: DEBORAH COX – NOBODY’S SUPPOSED TO BE HERE

SONG OF THE DAY: MISSY ELLIOTT feat. LAMB – I’M BETTER

This is probably one of the most slept on Hip Hop tracks of the last two years. I’ll admit when I first heard the song I wasn’t as in to it as ‘WTF (Where They From)’, released two years prior. We’re used to Missy singles having an obvious hook to sing along with but this doesn’t really have one and that can make it a … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: MISSY ELLIOTT feat. LAMB – I’M BETTER

SONG OF THE DAY: SBTRKT feat. JESSIE WARE – PROBLEM (SOLVED)

SBTRKT’s usual sound is a mix of UK Garage, House, Dubstep and Electronica; admittedly not the style of music I listen to and talk about on a regular basis. But this particular song caught my ear a few years ago when I recognised the voice as belonging to Jessie Ware, but did not recognise it as a song from her catalogue. Thanks to the trusty … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: SBTRKT feat. JESSIE WARE – PROBLEM (SOLVED)

SONG OF THE DAY: CELINE DION – SKIES OF LA

If you listened only to the singles from Celine Dion’s 2007 album ‘Taking Chances’, you could be forgiven for thinking a song like ‘Skies of LA’ would not be on it. Placed right at the end of the set’s 16 songs, it doesn’t really fit with the theme of the album which is made up largely of guitar driven pop songs – something of a … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: CELINE DION – SKIES OF LA

MUSIC TO HELP YOU THROUGH BLUE MONDAY

Do you feel like shit today? Well today is officially the most depressing day of the year. The dark mornings, cold weather, and the sad reality that it’s a long 11 months until we can listen to Mariah Carey’s Christmas albums again can cause many of us to feel a little down in the dumps this month. But today specifically – the third Monday of … Continue reading MUSIC TO HELP YOU THROUGH BLUE MONDAY

SONG OF THE DAY: SAM SMITH – RESTART

Pain and emotional suffering are a part of life and something we all experience at some point. But when that pain is delivered to us from someone we love and care about it makes it that much harder to bear. However, the up side to it all is once you come out the other side ultimately stronger and more self-assured, there is something so satisfying … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: SAM SMITH – RESTART

COVER OF THE WEEK: HOW DEEP IS YOUR LOVE (BEE GEES) – PJ MORTON feat. YEBBA

There is literally nothing Yebba can’t sing. I’m crazy for this girl. Here she joins forces with PJ Morton who is Stevie Wonder’s closest musical descendant (you can quote me on that) to take on the 1977 Bee Gees UK number one single ‘How Deep Is Your Love’. Coming a full four decades after the original version was released, this rendition is fresh and full … Continue reading COVER OF THE WEEK: HOW DEEP IS YOUR LOVE (BEE GEES) – PJ MORTON feat. YEBBA
