This one tries so hard to be angsty, but then he laughs when he realises he doesn't know most of the lyrics.



R.E.M. covering "I Will Survive".

Has Manson ever done a bad cover? Tainted Love, You're So Vain, Sweet Dreams, Personal Jesus, and now this. Top quality.

And now for some old fashioned teenage angst. This is proper Bebo flash-box stuff.

Spotify put one of this group'songs in my Discover Weekly a year ago. I added it to my library but never really sought out the rest of their work. Over the last week or so I've started listening to all their stuff. I'm truly blown away by the singer's voice. Just so raw, whether she's whispering or screaming her heart out.

Anyways I can't really talk with my friend's about this kind of sad music as they are mostly only into hip hop or hard rock so I'm gonna post it here.

Yesterday would have been the 30th birthday of a legendary former Boardsie, the utterly unique and much-missed Rozabeez.

Some of her best friends put together a Spotify playlist to commemorate the occasion, and for all of us who remember her to celebrate memories of times spent with her.

It's a wonderful collection of songs. David Bowie, Blondie, Pearl Jam, Nena, the Cure, and all kinds of other great stuff. Timeless classics.

God I've missed New Found Glory. Supposed to fly to see them in June, that's not happening anyway

I watched "Lost In Translation" tonight. I expect I'll be searching Spotify for a soundtrack playlist tomorrow.

Cool to hear the first song from Teaches of Peaches in one scene.

Have any of ye come across a Limerick musician called Paddy Dennehy? He'd be fairly well-known around Cork too.

His debut album, "Little Light", hit Spotify on Friday, but some of his songs have been up there and on YouTube for a few years now.

I got the CD a week early after doing a pre-order, and have had it on repeat for the last two and a half weeks. It is wonderful. Hints of Tom Waits and Mick Flannery (for whom he has opened in gigs before) but with a clear voice of his own. Highly recommended.

If you told 16 year old me just how much Country I would be listening to as I got older I don't think he'd have believed you. He'd have probably laughed at you.

I used to look at the genre with derision but each week my Discover Weekly contains more and more of it.

Now I'll probably never be a Nathan Carter convert but there's an awful lot of gold in the genre.

I think it's the production polish and the over-abundance of instruments in the arrangements that puts me off him and similar artists. There's just too much going on. His vocals are too smooth too.


I'm a fan rough production and bare bones arrangements across all the genres I like.
