Single Releases 23/04/07

Life is good this morning, primarily becuase Jermaine Jenas' last minute equalizer pissed off all the sanctimonious Arsenal fans (yes, its ok saying you should have won becuase you hit the post all those times but you didn't, so what else matters?) and because Nadine is a single woman again. You know where I am love.

Of course then you have to review singles by the likes of Mika (awful), Michael Buble (awful), Sunblock feat. Sandy (awful), The View (awful) and the Wurzels feat Tony Blackburn (you get the picture by now...). Enough to send a happy clapper into a deep spiral of depression.

I mean come on. I don't mind Lostphrophets, but it's coming to something when one of their singles is one of the better releases of the week isn't it?

And then there's the "indie-cool" likes of The Rapture, Shiny Toy Guns, Shitdisco and Captain. The songs are alright, in fact they're good. But probably not as good as some people would like you to believe.

So I'm with Betty Curse this week when she says Do You Mind (If I Cry). And boy, isn't the law of diminishing returns applying with her as well...
