The track below is called Expialidocious and was created by Pogo, who comes from Australia. It's one of many Pogotracks which are on his Myspace page here. Thanks to my brother for posting it on his Facebook page.

The Jets

There are so many songs that almost were part of my favourite 40. Every now and again I'm going to post some of the songs that are also high on my list. The Jets are a great American pop group and had hits in America with songs like Crush On You, Curiosity, Cross My Broken heart and Make It Real.
Here's my favourite song by them and is one that I used to play on my radio show. This is Rocket 2 U.

In The Beginning We Were Nothing But Glad

In 1986 Nick Kamen had a number 5 UK hit with Each Time You Break My Heart. The song was written by Stephen Bray and Madonna. She also sang the backing vocals. Here's Nick Kamen and Each Time You Break My Heart..
And here is Madonna's version.

If You Liked It

One day, not so very long ago, Beyonce was walking down the street and she met a little boy who was crying his eyes out. 'What's up, chuck?' enquired Lady Knowles-Z. 'My balloon!' sobbed the child, 'My balloon flew away!!!!'. 'Well!' said Beyonce 'If you liked it then you should have put a string on it!' Oh, Oh, Oh! Here's a Beyonce-Freemasons moment.

Louder Than Sirens, Louder Than Bells

Drumming Song is the new single from Florence & The Machine. It's the 4th single from the Lungs album. They are a music act that I really want to see in concert. Dublin's Vicar Street please, Ms Florence. No out in an Irish field malarkey for me, thank you! The download EP is released on September 13th and it contains four versions of the song and also Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up). Value! The CD single features Drumming Song, Falling and Dog Days Are Over.
Here's the colourful video.
