Song of the Day: I Am Not a Robot [Starsmith 24 Carat Remix] by Marina and the Diamonds

She might be poptastic but I do love a bit of Marina. I find that her lyrics have a more sincere meaning that most artists even bother to think about. I Am Not a Robot is one of her most famous songs and, as much as I never thought I would ever say this about a song, the remix is even better! (more…)

Song of the Day: We Come One by Faithless

Heya everyone!

I’m very sorry for the prolonged silence, I found myself unexpectedly busy with no time to prepare posts. Anyway, I’m back with my Song of the Day which is We Come One by Faithless. (more…)

Album Review: These are the Good Old Days by The Finest Hour

This 12 track album comes to just under 60 minutes and I can honestly say that These are the Good Old Days is truly their finest hour, give or take a few minutes.

Song of the Day: Asleep by The Smiths

Now, I’m not a massive fan of The Smiths, if their music comes on I listen, but I haven’t rifled through their back catalogue. As such I haven’t heard a song of theirs as soft and mesmerizing as Asleep. (more…)

Song of the Day: Drive by Incubus

Okay okay. So this has a lot to do with nostalgia.

Do you guys remember that game Donkey Konga? It basically had the same premise as the dance mat except you had bongos and you had to hit and clap along according to the notes on the screen. Well my absolute favourite to play on that was William Tell Overture but Drive, by Incubus was up there too (I think it was on the second game). (more…)
