    Ooh, yeah! I'm not sure if her voice is best suited to disco -- she sounds a bit like someone's auntie on a coach trip to Studio 54 -- but I like it. My choice is a bit disco-y too:

    That's an appropriate tune while you're waiting for your pizza to be delivered.

    Nice. He looks like Marlon Brando and sounds like Gene Pitney.

    'Sign of the Times' by Harry Styles. It's BIG! Love the high bits.

    I agree, it's a great song and instantly likeable, as if I've known this song for a very long time now.
    The backing vocals (from 4:00 onwards) are awesome, it really lifts the song to epic heights. Personally I would have preferred the song to end with a fade-out rather than a clear ending. Because it needs to go on, like watching a plane disappear in the sky, or a boat in the horizon.

    Gosh, it feels as if I've peaked into the future and retrospectively commented on a old #1 hit.
    Excellent choice!

    From the Dutch top 40:

    "Winner of the week Harry Styles blew all the critcs away."

    Wouldn't it be great if this had been Justin Bieber's song?

    I guess that's just their way of saying how good it really is.

    I'd say a cross between Rod Stewart and Robbie Williams.

    Heard this in a Gelato shop while in Rome, I have no idea what they are singing, but the song is a total blast.

    The Italians know how to write a catchy tune.

    Incidentally, I had hoped you'd present us the new summerhit by Cappella or Corona...:D

    Vanbot is a new discovery - for me - this week.




    She was on the local news this week, as they were talking about her new album. The idea for the album was so cool that I had to check her out. Her new album is called "Siberia", and each song is inspired of one of the stops on the Trans-Siberian Railway - written on her 2 week trip there. "Making of..." video

    So far, only 1 track from her Siberia album is out on YouTube - Collide (Krasnoyarsk):

    Great! It couldn't be more '80s if it tried!

    My favourite new discovery is 'Memory of You', a Girls Aloud B-side which sounds ever so like Blondie:

    My first choice this week would be 'Loyalty' by Kendrick Lamar Featuring Rihanna, but it's not on the YouTubes.

    [​IMG]

    So I've gone for 'The Black Swan' by Jake Thackray instead:

    Apart from the hits, I know little of this group and I would never have guessed it was them. I can hear the Blondie vibe towards the end.

    I had to remind myself that it was English, because at some point it started to sound East-European.

    I've only ever owned ONCE & TWICE from Siouxsie & the Banshees and I recently got a real bargain on eBay when someone was selling off the back catalogue. The question I had was which album should I invest in first. Looking at their ONCE album, Arabian Nights is one of my favourites and so I opted for Juju and I'm really caught up in the whole album. Halloween was the first track that hit me, but after a few more listens, it's all about Monitor and I am going to kill it by overplaying, it's that brilliant!

    The Pierces - I Can Feel


    I had never heard of them before. A big thanks to @Alexis who had posted their album in another thread.
