A Good Blogging Weekend for Music...

Have a look at Blognor Regis - it has loads and loads of You Tube gems, my favourites being Jane Wiedlin, the Boomtown Rats and Bananarama.

And Troubled Diva is still doing it's excellent Which Decade Is Tops For Pops?. To join in at the start, scroll down to July 24th. You get to hear a medley of , say, 5 number ten hits from 5 different decades and vote on them. What strikes you is just how mediocre ordinary chart records have been over the last 40 years or so. We only remember, and the the radio stations only play, the good stuff. But there's some nice surprises as well, including an extraordinary Cilla Black song that I'd never heard before - and believe me, if you'd heard it , you'd remember it.
