it's been a pleasure, Martyn! :)

This is a lovely and mellow song I've discovered by chance, basically:

I've been trying to find Kingmaker's sone Queen Jane for years - without success - but I found this one, and it's lovely too:

Wow, Yandee, that's more than a compliment. Thank you very very much, I am so glad that you like it that much. I am quite surprised.

I've fallen under Pelle Carlberg's spell. Anyone else familiar with his music?
If you like stuff bordering on twee, with some funny clever lyrics, you'll enjoy these.

This is the first song I heard, the first I heard of Pelle:

This is a smash hit in the UK right now and played all the time on the radio... It comes from a TV commercial but was turned into a complete song afterwards. I normally don't like this sort of music but this song has something very catchy somehow.

It is quite sad though that half of the YouTube comments on the song are about the sexual orientation of the singer. Do people really think in stereotypes like that that a disco singer with a high octave would automatically be gay? And does it matter anyway?? Quite sad that half of the people commenting just write something like "definitely gay"...

that just shows the mentality of people who feel the desire to say something. kinda like: "The lady doth protest too much, methinks."

~William Shakespeare~

years ago i stumbled on some research in psychology about homophobia. this particular study was able to find a positive correlation between homophobia and homoeroticism, believe it or not!!

of course people have labeled our beloved Mozzer as gay, and he continues to promote his enigmatic nature to keep us all guessing--one of the many reasons i like him. i couldn't care one way or anther, but the fact that he's keen enough to avoid labels intrigues me.

as far as the song you posted: woot!! i like it a lot, thanks for bringing it into my world. nice energy, positive vibe, and .... :blink: ....i'll refrain from any comment about Mika himself and his appeal to my animal side *woof* :P :lol:

It normally is not my type of music but somehow this song does the trick for me. Very catchy and makes me want to press the "replay" button each time I heard it. Very nice tune and may very well be this year's summer cracker.

Mika is from Lebanon originally by the way although he lived in France and UK most of his life. But he was born in Beirut.

When I tried to listen to this I needed authorisation, presumably cause it's been gotten from iTunes or something?

Here is a song by Broadcast, it's called 'Unchanging Window' - it's like retro-future pop or something. I just think it sounds really timeless.

this site has only samples, but from what i've heard, i'm going to order everyeffinthing they have to offer.

i'm particularly fond of what i can hear of "worryin' kind" because of my affinity for olde skool blooz music (1930's, one blind man, one guitar, one bottle-neck......i'm a grooving mad-man!!!).
